  1. Quick, responsive and immaculately presented. Like all great sports games, this is an everyman gem dressed up in niche clothing. [Dec 2006, p.92]
  2. With the Signature Style re-creating players’ styles on the game, the immersive Association mode, and the nearly impeccable online play, NBA 2K7 is the sports title to get this basketball season.

    It’s not hugely different from what we saw last year, but the advancements that were made were solid enough.
  4. A superior basketball simulation. [Jan 2007, p.84]
  5. Even though the improvements are minimal, no other hoops title gives such gravity to every possession. [Nov. 2006, p.110]
  6. Yes, the presentation isn't as good, and unfortunately there is no 24/7 mode--which is a real bummer, but on the court this game hasn't been left for dead. [Nov. 2006, p.128]
  7. It's all a bit dour in truth, with little excitement generated by the commentators, the court-side atmosphere and, most significantly, what happens on the court itself.
