Wait for NBA 2K19 Reviews
If you're truly on the fence about upgrading from an older 2K game or trying the series from the first time, you might want to hold off on a pre-order and wait for NBA 2K19 reviews.
We expect Visual Concepts to confirm plenty of details this summer. We also expect to see the game in action long before the official release date. That said, critics won't go hands-on with the finished product until much closer to the game's launch.
NBA 2K19 reviews from critics and hardcore fans of the series will help you decide if the game is worth buying early or if you're better off waiting for the game to hit the bargain bin.
At the very least you might want to wait for the Prelude release in August so you can at least get some hands-on time in yourself.
