    Its the exactly the same thing as 2k6 good game but same stuff nothing didn't personly i like the gm modes and franchise i though that would be more in depth then the2k6 but nothing different same old 2k6 just change everything that said 2k6 in the game to 2k7 so iwouldn't waste my money on this game if u do just by 2k6 same thing just alot cheaper.

    I bought NBA 2k7 yesterday and have been playing it ever since and I think its really good. I am new to basketball games, I always wanted to play them so I got my chance yesterday. Since I haven't played the previous NBA titles I can't really compare this with others. The graphics are awesome, gameplay good. I rate this a good 10/10

    Hi guys I'm From Haiti and I recently became a fan of the 2Ks. I´m playing NBA live since 1995 since Super NES but I was disapointed when I saw that NBA live is still not making its games more realistic just like you guys. I quit on playing my NBA Live 06 to play NBA 2k5 a friend lended me. 1 week later I went to the store and bought my own NBA 2K6 that I really enjoyed 2 weeks Hi guys I'm From Haiti and I recently became a fan of the 2Ks.

Of course having Kobe with number 24, the signature moves, the Crossovers are good but come on gimme more make me forget completely about NBA Live. Expand

    First, I love NBA 2K7. I give it a five for the most obvious reason. The game hasn't changed a bit. It could fall under "if it ain't broke, don't fix it", but why would I pay $40 for something that hasn't done anything other than update rosters? There aren't even any new cut scenes (cinematics). Everything is the same, moreso than any other sports game I've First, I love NBA 2K7. I give it a five for the most obvious reason. The game hasn't changed a bit.

Everything is the same, moreso than any other sports game I've ever played. I've only noticed 1 new player animation, and that's a jumping pass. Other than that, it's identical. I thought the graphics might be better, but not even. The controls are all identical. No new moves. 2k Sports, you make the best basketball game in video game history, but please give us die-hard fans a reason to buy your product every year. I would rather save my $40 and keep playing 2K6. Wait till next year if you haven't already bought it. It's great, but it is no different at all. I suppose the development team spent all (ie 100%) of their time on the next-gen version. I was very dissappointed. Expand

    Almost exactly like 2k6 but a few tweaks still makes it a good game. A bit disappointing at first but I still enjoy playing it!

  1. NBA 2K7 is a very good game, but it's largely unchanged from "NBA 2K6."
  2. 87
    It’s not hugely different from what we saw last year, but the advancements that were made were solid enough.
  3. 2K Sports came out with their "A" game this year, and NBA 2K7 looks to take the title as the best NBA game out there! [Nov. 2006, p.73]
