    If NBA 2K6 is a glimpse of what the Xbox 360 has in store, than I'm one proud owner. The graphics are great, although inconsistent, and the sound quality makes for a great overall presentation. The physics are definitely the high point of this game and players move unbelievably lifelike. The 24/7 mode tacks on another game in its own rights and association mode is great. The only complaints i have is that the game is littered with bugs and background objects and particle effects look last generation. If your a basketball enthusiast, buy this game! Expand

    2K6's biggest setback -- it doesn't have the instant visual appeal, next-gen look, or out-and-out raw emotion that gamers want to see in a next-gen sports game.

    A solid basketball title that really rests on the laurels of its predecessors. Even though the game can look absolutely amazing at time, it's still, at its heart, the same exact game that we saw in the current generation.
  3. NBA 2K6 looks fantastic if you have an HDTV, but the gameplay will seem familiar to you if you've played one of the other versions of the game already.
