- Summary: NBA 2K13 was a monstrous release for the world's #1 NBA video game franchise, with more than 38 Sports Game of the Year and "Best Of" mentions. NBA 2K14 will raise the bar yet again, providing the best basketball gaming experience for legions of sports fans and gamers around the world.
Nov 10, 2013This game is nothing new to the franchise (at least on the PC version). Its the same as last years but let me tell you the small changes. Dribbling and movement seems to feel a bit different and harder. Also, there is the roster update of course. I never owned 2k13 on the pc and I wanted that experience. On the xbox 360 2k13 there is no difference in that version than the "new" one on PC. I believe that one might even be better in some aspects. PC's are supposed to be more powerful than consoles but this port seems to just be held back so that we don't get to see what 2K has in store for the next-gen version. Really pathetic of the company to do so. It isn't a bad game just not worth your time or money if you already own the previous ones… Expand
Nov 10, 2013Very sad 2k release. You call for the ball and 90% of the time you get punished for "Bad ball call" even if you are wide open. Even if you have an perfect release shot you miss if the game wants you to. Blocking is nice but the NPC's will still slide across the floor at high rates of speed to cut you off. Even a Center will out run you. The game also changes release times from game to game. Not based on skills but random(On Normal). Fast Break works early in the my player but after about 20 or so games you can kiss fast break good bye. If you break out an any NPC gets close you will have the ball knocked away and you get punished for loose ball and it will either be a turnover or the ball rolls out of bounds and becomes a turnover. So somehow you lose control of the ball if an NPC is around and either way it will be a turnover because in the NBA you cannot keep control of the ball at all? Joke of a game.… Expand
Oct 19, 2013Same graphics, horrible new controls (prostick). Players that aren't stars shoot way too much (Dereck Fisher putting up 15 shots a game, more than Durant). Same voice actors, offense comes way to easily. CPU (hall of fame) seem to only make and take the most impossible shots, yet can't make the easy shots. Rebounding once again is terrible. Only plus side to the game is defense at the rim and slightly smoother animations. Don't buy this game, get nba 2k13, hell even 2k11 (best in the series). Mod the crap out of it and it'll be better than nba 2k14.
Pros: Interior Defense, slightly better animations
Cons: Prostick, same graphics, very little actual updates, lacks large amount of features from console game, rebounding, shooting, CPU, attribute caps
If you could revert the controls, this game would nearly identical to last year. Good thing they got rid of Jay-z's blatant advertisements. Don't buy game. Go torrent it at the most, maybe that'll get 2k's attention… Expand
Nov 12, 2013Worst game in all NBA 2k. No improvements in graphics and physics of models since last year. Worst gameplay: AI is stupid, but when you level up the difficulty, it shows really incredible situations: during money time your opponents with rating of 65 or 70 score 3 points in 80% situations or make a steal easily from LeBron or other star player and win the game, their speed become insane for some moments, they knows your actions before you release the buttons, and many many many other silly things which make the game imbalanced. Music and sound is OK, but nothing great. This game isn't good anymore, totally waste of time facing annoying gameplay.… Expand
Oct 2, 2013This is just NBA2k13 with a roster update. PC systems are several times more powerful than the current consoles but why do devs keep holding back?
NBA2k11 looks exactly like 2k14.
Graphics are too old, controls have changed again and are ackward so prepare to spend some time learning them again.
CPU still cheats like crazy (silly boundary defense, steals, rebound between 5 players and boxed out).
Commentary is still good as usual, presentation is also nice with nice intros, music, facts/stats.
But nothing really changed compared to previous years.
A loose ball can bounce around without even touching anyone from left to right.
Player reaction towards a loose ball: there is none, they wait till the opponent grabs the ball first and then reacts. You can't move either cause you're in a locked animation.
Force field defense and boundaries. You can't move past a defender on higher difficulties when you make your dribble move because the game has predetermined that you won't score.
I crossed my opponent and he was 3m away from me but I still couldn't move forward.
Dumb teammates AI, they seem to follow you around and are always in your way.
Holding fouls during myplayer still aren't being called. You want to go to your position for a play and you cross the paint: the defense will hold you like crazy and you can't move anywhere.
and many other annoying bugs that happened in previous games still happen in 2k14.
Not worth the money.… Expand
