  1. Not the greatest way to celebrate 10 years of the franchise.
  2. What this fast-paced basketball game lacks in depth, it makes up for in fun.
  3. NBA 2K10 is a great sport title with some big problems that prevent it from being a top score game. The graphic in awesome and the new My Player Mode is probably the best addiction in the franchise.
  4. There are a zillion game modes to keep both hardcore and casual fans happy, and minus my troubles with Xbox LIVE I’ve enjoyed my 2K experience.

    NBA2K 10 falls down because it tries too hard to be a simulation, instead of just being a game.

    The gameplay could still use a few tweaks. [Issue#53, p.94]
  7. NBA 2K10 is disappointing, to say the least.

    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.

    Ok,ok I just got done playing this game for an insane amount of time.For one I first want to say how the majority of reviewers are wrong on Ok,ok I just got done playing this game for an insane amount of time.For one I first want to say how the majority of reviewers are wrong on this one.First of all this title was released with technical problems as we all know but they have been all cleaned up thanks to a much needed patch.1 up is way off on there review,I saw how they gave 2k8 a 8.5 then 2k9 a 9.1 then they bashed nba 2k10 with a 6.7.This game is out of this world good in every respect.Review companies need to take in mind that there could be technical problems but then,of course, there will be a patch released,especially in this time of gaming.I really like how OXM magazine looked passed it and wrote such a "on the money" review.I think it is better then 9.0 though.The depth of this game,the best sound,the best replay value in sport gaming.I still get a bit upset because the 2k servers are so busy that nba today still doesn't work all the time but everything else is great.I have ALL of the 2k basketball games from nba 2k on the Dreamcast and I can honestly say that they have stepped up there game so much with this title that there is no way EA sports will ever touch this in the future.EA actually never has won at any year for there basketball title but came very close in 2005 because of the all-star weekend.This game has so much to do, and everything it offers is grade A quality not just "stuff".I have went back to every basketball game from all companies that made basketball games and the closest to this game is actually Nba 2k9,Espn nba 2k4 then Nba 2k6.Anyone can make a game look incredible or just play incredible but this game has it all and I cant imagine how nba 2k11 will top it but I'm sure they will with Project Natal,and other innovations and ideas that they will have.I just ask of 2K to please free up your servers so nba today will always run correctly.I give Nba 2k10 a 9.6 Full Review »

    I am absolutely astonished at how game critics have given this game a favorable review. Either they played a different game or they did not I am absolutely astonished at how game critics have given this game a favorable review. Either they played a different game or they did not delve into any of the online features (which is a majority of the game). NBA 2k10 has to go down in history as being the most epic fail in game release and QA history. The fact that 2k released this game in such a sorry, buggy state while stealing people's hard earned cash should be a crime. Over 3 months later and it's still as buggy, and still unplayable online. I and many others (check out the 2ksports.com forums) have wasted countless hours/days just trying to play an online game. Extremely frustrating. Again, this game should be used as the ultimate example of how not to release a game that's not finished. I doubt I'll ever buy a 2k game again. Full Review »
