    Just like another ordinary nba games. nba 2k6 only gives a little improvement and development. still too hard too handle the analog and pad joystick. too many function makes me confuse and hard too focus to the game. but it's still worth to paly. GG

    Have played previous versions of this game, so was pretty used to it, I love the improvements to the in game feel, and the shot stick just makes those dunk more satisfying, some slight improvements still need to be done to the gameplay, Live you need to take notes.

    It doesn't feel right. But...you could do alot worse than NBA 2K6. Live 2006 for example.

    This game is awesome this is by far the best basketball simulation ever made, it still isn't perfect but its fun to play, it could have given you more contol over what post moves you do down low in the paint, sometimes the computer does up and unders, and you can't thats my only problem with this game, other than that.. this game is perfect.

    Problem is, it simply isn't as intuitive as "Live." It takes several games to get the feel for it and even when you do, you still can't pull off the same breadth of moves you can in EA's offering. [Nov 2005, p.78]

    24/7 is worth the price of the game itself, and the beefed up association mode and improved authenticity of gameplay, despite the erratic AI, make this the best installment in the franchise despite the absence of the ESPN partnership.
  3. Isomotion either really needs an overhaul, or it needs to be scrapped. And PLEASE do something about about the computer AI. But on the flip side, I love the new shot stick, and the strip and rip controls.
