I have put a number of hours into this game, and while it does have it's good moments, the negitives outweigh the positives more so than preivious 2K games to recommend.

It has the same annoying staples of past games in MyCareer mode:
- Does not matter how high you shooting skills are or what level signature skills are at, you will still miss most of your shots no matter how wide open you are. If this game wants you to fail, you will fail.
- Teammates have the same disease, especially when you pass them the ball. Does not matter how good the pass is or if they are wide open beihind the arc or under the basket, they will miss 8.5 out of 10 times screwing you out of assists.
- A press conference after every ****ing game with the same stupid questions
- The guy you are guarding will hit every shot he has if you leave him even an inch of room, even the bench playing scrubs.
- Teamates and opponents going out of bounds for no reason 5-10 times a game.( I can count on one hand how often I see that in a season let alone a game)

2K14 tho included some new fun features, such as:
- Clunky AI that causes your character to go off by himself for no reason, falling over, stumbling around and refusing to react when you want to fastbreak.
- Teammates who refuse to screen for you but are more than happy to screen you or just stand there getting in your way when trying to make defensive plays.
- A GM that doesn't listen to a word you say

I put in over 100 hours into this game solely with My Career and was loving it.
Stopped playing for a few months to play other games
Now my frame rate refuses to increase past 30 and the game is unplayable, constanly freezing up and slowing down throughout the game.
It's beyond frustrating and i've tried several fixes and nothing is working. I am beyond furious.
Don't bother with this game. I hate 2K..

The Saga of Adam Smith; Rise & Fall

Adam started his career in Atlanta as an ambitious PG looking to take the league by storm. The league was hit by a force of nature no analyst could have ever predicted. Smith destroyed rookie records for scoring and steals, these feats garnered him Rookie of the Year honors but unfortunately his incredible run was stopped by The Big 3 in the Easten Conference Finals. Adam had always aspired to play in the Big D and requested a transfer. Little did he know that he wasn't the only acquisition the Mavericks would make that offseason. Dallas had managed to acquire Lebron James and Smith in a 3 team trade involving Dallas, Miami, and Atlanta. Smith's second year was almost better than his first; in fact it was statistically better but the spotlight had been shifted. Smith finished 2nd in MVP voting to his colleague James. The Mavericks did manage to land the franchises second championship, a fabulous concession. Smith would learn to love this series of events as four seasons passed, each with a similar storyline. He was a valuable asset to the team but he could never quite keep the spotlight. Two more championships, top five in MVP voting for each of those four seasons. His seventh season was the breakout season he was looking for; he made it a mission to finally be the MVP. This was a contract year, he needed to perform. He was the league top scorer that season; in fact he had outscored the entire rest of his team combined. Smith finished with an outstanding 50+ points/game average and a career low in assists. The Mavericks finished ninth in the West barely missing the playoffs; but he had done it. Smith was the MVP. The administration was not happy with his selfish play and the decline in the team's performance and quickly dealt him away to the Pelicans on a max guaranteed contract. Smith was the star, the golden boy of basketball at last. The glory was lost even faster than it was earned after three pitiful seasons in New Orleans. Many insiders blame the fall on addiction and questionable off-the-court decisions. Smith chose to retire after his contract ended that season. Methamphetamine had utterly consumed the future hall of fame candidate; all of us wish Adam 'The Maverick' Smith the best and truly hope he can turn his life around. It is possible he may have another MVP season in him.

10/10 would dunk again.

MyCareer is a joke. The rest is great. Gameplay is somewhere between 15 and 16.

If you own 2k12 or 2k13, dont bother buying this game. Its just a rehash of those game. Some new animation in the paint, a little bit of bug fixes for 2k13.

Even the commentator are mostly saying the same thing since 2k12. Its a pity that nba 2k has turned out like this ever since EA stop making nba live.

If you really want to play 2k14 wait until its $10 or less.

Pros:

1. Best basketball game in the market.
2. Players feel amazing to play with (for the most part). Authentic animations.
3. MyCareer is a super addictive mode which is sure to keep you busy for a long time.
4. Costs $29.99.

Cons:

1. Not a big improvement over NBA 2k13.
2. Graphics are sub par. Why the developers chose to keep such bad visuals for the PC version is beyond me.
3. A.I can be clunky at times.

Small piece of information for everybody, before buying this game. It does NOT have all the next-gen features, witch presented in PS4 and XBox One versions, like new graphics, cut scenes, animations, etc. It is still good enough, but game feels just like an addon to NBA 2k13 (or maybe, like a port from PS3/Xbox 360), not a really new game for modern times. So, buy PS4 or XBox One versions, if you can.

P.S.: http://unrealitymag.com/index.php/2013/11/11/nba-2k14-current-vs-next-gen-night-and-day-comparison/ - here is good comparison of versions.

I've played the PC ports of this NBA2K series since 2K11. To me, 2K12 was the peak of the series so far. This year though, it seems like they're taking advantage of no competition and are taking it easy. Why?

- Players feel much less flexible/agile than in previous years
- They changed the controls, again. 2k13 probably had the best gamepad config to date
- Players are much more sloppy with regards to ball handling. Rebounds go through their hands, silly collisions cause players to lose the ball, sometimes players will randomly animate in ways not appropriate to the situation (sometime causing out of bounds calls)
- Inexplicably consistent blowing layups and dunks, sometimes with completely clear path
- Physics sometimes act weird. Going for a steal sometimes you'll knock the ball out the other side of the court or even into the crowd. This has an unintended funny side effect of making some blocks look way more spectacular than they should be

Still, even having said that laundry list of things that bother me, I'd recommend the game (unless you want to manually patch the new rosters into 2K13). I'm hoping we get a mid-season patch like we did last year to fix these annoyances.

These opinions only cover single player mode.

DO NOT BUY THIS GAME . WAIT UNTIL NBA2K15 DROPS , WHY SHOULD I WAIT YOU MAY ASK WELL ITS BECAUSE

2K games didn't do sh*t to this game , It's like NBA2K13 with a different layout and minor graphical udjustments . you don't even get the next gen engine or the story in 'My Carear' mode . The only good outcome is the fact that you get 'lebron's path to glory' for free + the online mode is just awful the matches last for a couple of minuits not a full game cos the other person always quits and the controls have completely changed

overall this game is a ripoff , it really sucks and i would rate 3/10 cos it just sucks balls

IT'S 2021 IN MYCAREER AND OBAMA IS STILL IN THE WHITE HOUSE! EEERRMAAGGEERRDD

In all seriousness though - Love this game, MYCAREER mode is very in-depth and progression is solid and rewarded.

Roster mods available for up-to-date teams and player profile pics and in-game player appearances.
