From the early screenshots, gamers can tell the players look incredibly realistic. It is easy to see the tight facial features of each player and their emotions are easily seen. The one thing that could use improvement is the backlighting of the crowd.  It is clearly seen some of the crowd appears so dark that it is barely visible. However, NBA2k15 nails the more important aspect of making sure the courts and players are as realistic as possible.

The screenshots look rather dark to begin with so it’s possible that the game will look brighter when released.

The details of the warm-ups and jerseys are far more realistic. The best part of NBA2k15 is the overall realistic and detailed look to it.  It is easy to see the imperfections such as the wrinkles on a warm-up jersey as pictured below. It seems clear early on that the game designers did a phenomenal job overall of making this game as real as possible.
