The champion stays on top for now with their strongest effort yet. NBA 2K14 combines the rock-solid gameplay of the series with a great new control scheme and a fun LeBron-centric new mode that will suck you in.
NBA 2K14 is the best NBA game to date, thanks to a smooth gameplay, both in defense and in offense, and lots of great game modes. Our only hope is that Euroleague next year will be more integrated in the game.
Graphics and options are almost the same, if you're not a Miami Heat fan, but gameplay's been polished to the max. Even if there's little new content, NBA 2K14 can still throw it down like an All-Star.
I have no issue recommending NBA 2K14 to those looking for another tightly-tuned, exquisitely deep game of basketball for their current generation consoles. It'll certainly help if you have a particular interest in King James and his future endeavors, but NBA 2K14 has more than enough quality content to keep LeBron haters happy too.
Great graphics in the game. Love the Le Bron path to fame, it is just like 2K11 Jordan Challenge mode. The my Player mode is really realistic with the GM and stuff like that. The dribble stick is difficult do master at first, but as you play it more, it becomes easier.
2K should have spent less time creating the annoying Lebron mode and more time fixing obvious bugs: Teammates standing out of bounds for no reason or dribbling out of bounds for no reason. Teammates switch on picks without needing too and the game provides no way to see this coming or prevent it. The social media feed will get off a few days and you'll be heckled for failing challenges that are in games you haven't played yet. You can only have one name and face for all of your created players and the game does not warn you of this, ever. There is no point in equipping a shoe because there is only a 20% chance your player will be wearing them in the next game. Lastly, non-shooting fouls that occur from shot block attempts are ALWAYS followed by commentary about not being in position for the charge.
This game got so many things right but a couple of big things really wrong.
I really tried liking this, putting down atleast 10+ hours of game play, thinking things would become better. Well they didnt. First of this game is hard. And no, im not a guy that runs from a game as soon as it seems a little hard, but it's just ridicules when players in the game, who are supose to be "pro-ballas" can't even net from inside the paint without a real struggle. Wanna score from the 3 point line? Pff, forget about it. Want to do absolutley insane good looking dunks? Well you might, but they will be as rare as Haleys comet, and pretty much only occur if you're free with the basket and don't have any defenders blocking your path.
Now the game does have quiet good graphics, and 2K is trying to set the standard for the comming generation of sports games, one can just hope that they will fix the gameplay for the next NBA title, as of right now the ball has it's own life, and you will hit the rim ALOT more then the net.
The point of a new game is to improve on the last one, 2K really screwed this one up. I would rather play 2k13, all of the shooting changes are frustrating. And I'm not a lebron fan so please get off of he ass and go back to the legends!
