Compatibility and Speed Guaranteed
Jaco E onReviewed by
I was skeptical at first as I was not sure if this would not be compatible with my trusty, now aged, Samsung Note 4. The skepticism was soon killed when the parcel arrived as it proved to be a perfect fit for the phone - including the rated speeds.
This card does provide a boost if you are a heavy video recorder / multi-tasking person that uses the memory card a lot. The extra speed ensure apps runs a bit smoother (those that run off the memory card of course). This card is a must for those looking to expand their storage and want a bit of added speed in the process.

NBA 2K18 on PS4 Pro - Is it any good?
Reviewed by Red Tie Guy on
I’ve been following the NBA2K franchise for a while and with many sports franchises beginning to implement fantastic stories into their games, it was time for me to jump in and head onto the court.
Sports games never really focussed much on story but with recent titles such as Fifa with its Alex Hunter story mode and Madden which has its Longshot story, each one interesting and unique on its own, it’s difficult not to compare NBA2K’s story to those titles.
NBA2K18 offers its own story in the form of MyCareer mode which sees you creating your own player building yourself up in the ranks of the NBA league. You start off in the NBA 2K18 Prelude, which is free to download, where you create your character in a character creator which is somewhat lacking or you can import your own face with the NBA app.
Once you completed Prelude, which I do recommend as it’s free and you gain bonuses when playing the full game afterwards, not to mention that Prelude has really easy trophies for those trophy hunters, you continue in the full game where you’re eventually picked to play for your favourite team.
You do have a few rivals in the game presented in cut scenes which at times feels very out-dated compared to the rest of the visuals and you also have dialogue options although it doesn’t really have much impact in the end.
The character interactions during the campaign are a hit and miss. Sometimes they would actually make me laugh out loud with their funny and odd jokes but other times it just feels awkward. It is definitely a nice feature to have but the story mode requires a lot of improvement, especially when compared to other sports franchises.
Visually the game is a mixed bag. At times you can almost smell the sweat dripping down from your character and other players but at other times the lyp syncing seems completely off. One moment it would almost seem as if you’re watching a real match play out only to be thrown back to reality when a cut scene starts which looks as if it was pulled from the previous generation.
When looking through gameplay at previous NBA2K titles, it’s surprising to see that visually this game feels like an overall downgrade. The character creator definitely took a step back and when I imported my face from the NBA app, well let’s just say they should have made more customizable options instead of just giving you a handful of tweaks.
The sound design is superb and gives that authentic feel of an NBA game. The crowed cheers you on as you’re about to score and the voice overs don’t feel forced. They used their real life counter parts for the character voices however; I did have a few instances where the sound was delayed by a second or so.
Furthermore the music, although not something I would listen to much outside of the game does fit well with NBA2K18 and wasn’t too repetitive. The biggest issue I had with the sound was the voice of your character and the person your character stays with for the majority of the game.
This woman, although she might seem a bit odd in the beginning, does begin to warm up towards you as she is always cracking odd and somewhat silly jokes. I would have liked a few voice options instead of just one, regardless of your race.
The gameplay is fast, smooth and technical at times. As mentioned, I’m not a person who has played NBA 2K games in the past so I’m definitely new to the controls. The tutorial does provide a really good introduction to the basics and you can take it further if you wish.
It wasn’t too difficult to learn the controls and after a few matches, I quickly learned the ins and outs of the ball game. Mastering the techniques though, is where the real challenge lies. I quickly realised when playing online that even though I managed to score a few goals, I’m still far off from winning matches and that is, in all honesty, where the fun lies in online matches. It is the easiest way to learn and NBA2K18 gives me that, just one more match moments.
Is the game fun? Technical issues aside, definitely. From creating your own character whether you use the app or create one from the editor to choosing your favourite team and hitting it off against a friend or online, there is lots of hours to be lost in this game.
However, the mycareer mode isn’t something I’ll go back to even if there is multiple dialogue options and the myGM mode is easily forgettable. Reading through the 2K forums, it does seem as if a lot of the hardcore NBA2K fans are rather disappointed in this year’s iteration of NBA2K but as someone who hasn’t experienced any of the previous NBA2K games, I could not compare it to other titles.
I did expect more from the story and character creation mode and the visuals does seems slightly downgraded when looking at gameplay from NBA2K17 or even 2K16 but overall I had a fun time.

Fix the Damn Bugs!
Craig S onReviewed by
But the main problem I've having is how the game keeps crashing, a reason I usually put off playing new games (that and the price) and it seems these bugs still haven't been fixed. Twice when trying to change controls, and now once while playing it. It's taking all my motivation for playing the game and making me even want to return the game, even though Raru's not at fault and it's just the developers who seem to not care about the PC version as optimization isn't great either.
