  1. NBA 2K10 maintains its dominance of basketball video games once again, and the developers are clearly not resting on their laurels.
  2. 90
    NBA 2K10 continues its legacy of dominance! 2K Sports delivers one of the finest basketball experiences since the glory days of the Dreamcast.
  3. When the best improves, there isn’t much more to say other than go and get your copy of the darn game! At once!
  4. 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.
  5. My Player mode’s uphill struggle may not appeal to everyone, but the outstanding presentation and best-in-class Association mode make NBA 2K10 the best basketball sim.
  6. There's no doubt that NBA 2K10 is still the champion: this is clearly the best basketball game available.
  7. 67
    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.

    NBA 2K10 manages to improve many facets of its game over its predecessor, showing that this franchise is not willing to give up its all-star status anytime soon. Expand
