Dec 23, 2013Better game than last year, But was hoping for a little more. For $30 it's a good buy. Would have glady paid $60 for a few more features though.
8.5 I rated 10 because too many people gave this a 0 rating,
Come on people let's be fair. It's the best basketball game on the market.
I challenge anyone to name a better B-Ball game than 2K14.
Can't wait for NBA 2K15.
Oct 10, 2013Best sport game for sure. This year I liked the realistic moves you make to shoot and to block. All players are better balanced and myPlayer you are not an stupid from beginning like years before, you are a normal player and can get improvements. Thanks 2k.
Dec 23, 2013This years NBA 2K has a lot of improvement over last years installment for sure. Don't listen to anybody telling you that this is just a roster update. It's true that the PC version didn't get as much of an overhaul as the 360/PS3 version. But for the reduced price,This PC version is a great deal and has much to offer.
On the surface the presentation has been updated to a much more pleasant look and feel. But the changes are only skin deep. Not too much time went in to doing much more than that. The new soundtrack is solid and the commentary is exceptionally well done again this year(50 Hours Of New Commentary). Veteran gamers of previous installments of the series will still occasionally hear recycled sound bits of the years past. But not so much that it would detract from the game-play experience. You will rarely hear the same thing twice in any one game.
No real new features in MyCareer or Association beyond minor fixes and updates. A new "Path To Greatness" mode offers LeBron James fans the chance to step in his shoes and relive the past as well as guide him in his future endeavors(Wherever that may be).
The roster is updated with last years draft class as well as 14 Euroleague teams from around the world.
The In-game graphics and the look of the players haven't really changed much since last year. But there have been tons of new animations added to the game. While the PC's NBA 2K14 is never going to look as good as the next-gen consoles, With all of the graphic enhancement and cyber-face mods out there for the PC version you can make an already good looking game even better.
Where NBA 2K14 for the PC really shines is in its game-play. It's one of those things that can't really be described. It has to be played! 2K13's game-play was great. But 2K14 just feels and plays so much better than great. The spacing, Animations, Movement, Dribbling, Shooting, Defending and player interaction is almost perfect. The AI has taken a huge step forward on both sides of the ball as well. I can't say enough about how well this game feels and plays.
Gameplay: 11/10 (Above And Beyond)
Bottom line: If you liked NBA 2K12 or 13, You are going to love this game. If you are just a casual gamer looking to play a great Basketball game, There is none better than NBA 2K14.… Expand
Dec 30, 2013Not the greatest port over for surfing the menu's, and creating an account (one which I already had, and wouldn't let me log into from 2k13), but that said it is a good game. The updated physics and AI really put a nice touch on it. The player ratings are suspect in some cases as 2k sports seems to only focus on big market winning teams (Darren Collison is an 80, but Teague is a 77? not buying that). Love the upgrades to paint defense (Hibbert rotates and dominates the paint now) but hating how you get called for blocking fouls just for blocking the path to the hoop. Overall would rate it 8.5 easily, gave it a 10 to quiet all the haters. Those saying it's simply a "Roster Update" haven't played these games extensively. This is my first time playing it on a computer, but it's definitely an upgrade in graphics over the 2k13 console version, and the player AI is much better than years past except for how often players chill out of bounds.
Also, this isn't meant to be played on a keyboard/mouse. I'd highly recommend buying a wired controller if you're complaining how you can't get to the hoop on a keyboard.....… Expand
