  1. Another year, another solid effort from 2K Sports. NBA 2K10 maintains its dominance of basketball video games once again, and the developers are clearly not resting on their laurels.
  2. So with an incredibly polished game like this, it is no wonder that NBA 2K10 still holds its own against EA’s juggernaut.
  3. Great graphics, amazing gameplay and awesome value are the key words in NBA 2K10. This is a game franchise that improves every year.
  4. 2K10 makes some great strides in presentation this year with fewer changes in gameplay.
  5. The biggest difference between 2K9 and 2K10 is My Player mode. It's yet another new take on a single player version of the game, and it adds a layer to what is already an high-octane version of basketball.
  6. The best basketball you can buy, and a great effort for 2K’s 10-year bash. [Christmas 2009, p.77]

    NBA 2K10 is an excellent basketball game that's full of nagging technical problems. It's a shame that some players probably won't be able to look past the inconsistent frame rate, online issues, and A.I. quirks, because NBA 2K10 does many things very, very well.

    It is fun to play as your favorite NBA team to compete with, but the real fun begins when you create your own NBA player and make him the best player ever. Expand

    Coming from a person that doesn't enjoy sports games that much (mainly because i think that they are the same game each year,) I had a lot of fun with this. It is very realistic and fun. There are many game modes. Some i still haven't touched because i have been playing the other game modes. First of all there is your everyday exhibition game. The gameplay works well with very few glitches. There were a few instances where there was some slow down but this does not happen a lot so it is not a major problem. The season mode is pretty self explanatory. You're a team that goes through a season or two. The weird thing, and i didn't notice this until halfway through the season, the other teams will accept any trade offer unless you turn the setting off. Overall this mode works well and this is probably where you will spend the most time. Then there is the my player mode. You create a player to try to make an NBA team. This is all good in theory but there are some major setbacks. You can call for one pass and it will bring down your game grade for excessive pass calling. It is also very hard to make your player good. It takes awhile but after you make your player good, you are going to be on a team in no time. Expand

    This game is very good. I've also played NBA Live 10 and I can tell you this game is much, much better than NBA Live 10. The My Player mode is great, The only problem is the online. Expand
