This year, we've joined forces with the league's most dominant force: LeBron James. NBA 2K14 will raise the bar, yet again. Collapse

    There's still plenty of room for improvement with patches and bug fixes, but NBA 2K14 shows signs of improvement.

    Considering you don't have too many basketball games to enjoy on mobile - save for the always-enjoyable NBA Jam - NBA 2K14 is a good choice, especially if you're a fan of LeBron and want him back in Cleveland. Fans can dream.

    NBA 2K14 is not a horrible game by any means. The new music and the depth of the LeBron: Path to Greatness mode definitely give it a good amount of fun and value. But is that value worth the $7.99 asking price? Probably not. Unless you really care about LeBron James and his mode, then I would just stick with NBA 2K13. It’s got the same gameplay and the same graphics, but it also packs a better sound suite that indeed, sounds sweet.

    NBA 2K14 is a decent game and if it wasn't for the prequel, I'd more than likely suggest snapping it up. As it stands, however, I seriously recommend purchasing NBA 2K13 instead - It's the same price and the commentary and up-to-speed court announcer make it worth the investment.

    Despite a handful of game modes and a fairly smooth experience overall, 2K14 reinforces the adage that all that glitters is not gold.

    NBA 2K14 shapes up well for some LeBron-fueled magic, but it fumbles the pass and struggles to meet expectations after a promising 2012-13 season.

    NBA 2K14 is a disappointing effort, that is poor in the most important regards making it one to steer clear of.
