    This year's game clears up almost any blemishes that may have carried over through the years, and perfects the package in a way that blew my socks off.
  2. There are so many nuances to the look of this game; it'd be a feeble task trying to list them. Needless to say, it's stunning.
  3. NBA 2K6 just proves that you can improve on a series that already comes close to perfection.
  4. Some of NBA 2K6's updates are incremental, while others show a continuing commitment towards maintaining the best NBA video game on the market.
  5. Luckily for gamers, this year's version of the NBA 2K series delivers.
  6. By far the best version of what has become the best NBA game on the market.
  7. NBA 2K6 also has full Live support, something that mysteriously disappeared from "NBA Live 06" just before it was released. Take your pick. [Official UK Xbox Magazine]

    I am not ALLOWED to buy any more games, and the only time I can play is when I SNEAK off to my buddies place (Per MY WIFE!!) However, I have played NBA 2K6 at my buddies place, and it is the most realistic basketball out there. The graphics are great, and the gameplay is awesome!!! Expand

    This game has really improved from last years. I really like the gameplay, and it does take a little bit to get used to the extreme dunks/moves with the Left Thumbstick. Overall, I think that the stars (MARBURY) are built up a little too much! But, if someone takes that little guy, then you just match up with a team like NJ!! The online features are pretty good too. GREAT GAME!!! Expand

    What can I say. This game has improved on graphics. Gameplay is awsome. 24/7 is full of fun. Assosiation is just to deep. It was missing something, I can't really say. I recommend it to any b-ball fan. Expand

    Well i can only speak for the gameplay when playing on the season mode but once again sega sports is too arcadish for me. I didnt have much of a feel of a simulation game because i can dunk or drive to the hoop almost any play. Really that one error alone is a huge error to me which dropped 4 to 5 points off of my ranking. Other than that the gameplay is good and i'm sure the online is a blast. I'm going to have to rent Live 06 which will hopefully give me a little more realistic gameplay. we'll see. Expand
