  1. The most well-rounded, entertaining, and error-free hoops offering this season. Plenty of modes and gameplay depth combine with stunning visuals and presentation to make NBA 2K7 this year’s king of the court and a must own for PS3-owning hoops fans.
  2. NBA 2K7 is easily the greatest basketball game ever made regardless of the platform you play it on. It will please NBA fans infinitely and it will make non-fans appreciate the sport even more.

    NBA 2K7 is still the best basketball game out there, and it's improved thanks to the SIXAXIS controller, turning an already impressive title into a great one.
  4. Without doubt the best 'real' basketball game to hit the PS3 but is far from unbeatable because every sports game needs that 'pick up and play' factor to get players hooked. [Apr 2007, p.57]
  5. The most authentic sports game available on PS3 at present. [May 2007, p.112]
  6. The IsoMotion controls are still difficult to master, and the story-driven 24/7 mode still lacks decent team AI, but these faults pale in comparison to the amount of things Visual Concepts does right with this hoops title.
  7. Stick to playing NBA Street Homecourt instead. [June 2007, p.83]

    This Game is just like the real thing. The beginning of the game, halftime reports! The game is better than NBA Live!

    This is as close to playing in the NBA without actually stepping onto the court. The presentation, graphics, animations, and computer A.I. are all top notch. The addition of signature shots is brilliant. Every player shoots like he does in real life, and because the graphics are so good, it looks like you're watching a real televised NBA game. The soundtrack is also excellent, full of head-bopping music. I can't wait 'till I get an HDTV so I can I can experience this game in Hi-def! It's unbelievable. This is a must-have for all basketball fans. Even non-basketball fans will be impressed. "What teams are playing? Oh, this is a videogame?!!" Expand

    One of the best NBA games out there. Simple enought to play so that it's still enjoyable after dozen of matches and you still want more.

    The best NBA game series out there, so much so that they have put the NBA Live franchise out of business. This game is really good and realistic not just in gameplay but the overall feeling of everything related to a basketball game in the NBA. Expand
