I litterally know nothing about Basketball but I did get to create the "Tune Squad" from the 1996 classic "Space Jam", it was fun for a few hours but i don't know if it was really worth it. I guess if you're a huge basketball fan you should get it but for the average gamer it's not a must have. You can make a team of Michael Jordan from every year of his career and that's fun and it also could be a good game if you wanted to learn the rules of basketball. One of the biggest draw backs is that you can't play against your friends with your custom teams, this would be fun as there is variety of different player, team and stadium mods. All in all it's a pretty good game.

I really enjoy series and this game because the core mechanics are solid...but it could be so much better. I mainly play MyCareer and not online.

AI needs work, for one thing. 80% of the time it feels like my teammates don't understand spacing and would just bunch up right next to the ball handler. When the other team doubles you, they either fall asleep or run right up to you asking for the ball instead of cutting or getting into a scoring position. Also, when I drive, Cs and PFs that are decent mid-range shooters just clog the paint instead of reacting, but when the CPU penetrates, their teammates know to gtfo.

Graphically, I was realy disappointed at how many subpar faces were still kept from last year's game. Even LeBron (he's on game's cover for crying out loud) looks off. Chris Bosh looks like a balding Chinese dude that been chasing the dragon for way too long. Thankfully, there are mods to help with this.

Another thing that I dislike is the removal of play practicing. What's the big idea? There seems to be almost no point in taking it out of the game. It feels like plays break too often in this game and without that feature, it's hard to know which ones actually work consistently.

Shooting feels really inconsistent this year too. More often than not "A+ Perfect Release" just doesn't fall. I understand people saying that it's more realistic this way, but if a shot doesn't go in then that means it's off, so is it actually perfect? I would have rather been told that I was late or early on the timing instead of seeing perfect shots clank.

Bumping on the perimeter is annoying, but I know why it's there. On the other hand, when I back out of a drive, I feel like the momentum is way too strong, and I get sucked into my defender anyway. Same with using screens from the wings for some reason. Another problem I have with momentum is that sprinting on user-controlled players starts too late because from my perspective, the CPU can start sprinting on a dime.

Off-ball movement is my least favorite aspect of this game. On offense, I'm constantly running into teammates who evidently have tree trunks for legs. I'm alright with my defender preventing me from moving around the court, but on defense, they slip by me wayyy to easily in comparison. Also, I don't like how running right next to your man when he's the ball handler makes your controlled player do a weird slippery roundabout move, and again, momentum while running around on defense in general is annoying to deal with.

Finally, the in-game presentation is as good as always, but I really really really really wish there was an option to turn off those unskippable stats screens. The UI is kind of a slog to get through too. Like, just with the team-select screen - with so many teams, it'd be nice to have an option for a grid layout like you'd see in a fighting game.


Anyway, despite all that, I still managed to play 400+ hours of it and keep most of my hair, so I guess that's a testament to how good the main gameplay is.

NBA 2K14 for the PC seems like an afterthought. There's way less features than it's console counterpart, and the controls are clunky and awkward. It's online play is so laggy it feels as though one of the players must be on a different planet, but, hey, if you're a basketball fan and don't want to buy this for the console(for some odd reason) then picking teams in association and doing the fantasy draft is pretty fun- probably the most fun this game can offer.

This game is a flaming piece of ♥♥♥♥. I can't even log into it to play. It seems to be a crappy half ♥♥♥♥♥ port of a console game with little effort put into making it functional. Don't waste your money.

(I wish I didn't have to give this game a thumbs down but steam only gives yes and no. With that said..) HOW THE HELL DO YOU PLAY THIS GAME? I'm a tall ma♥♥♥♥a and I play center in real basketball, and do fancy stuff on the court (kinda) and when I want the ball I get excessive and bad call for pass badges :-/

Also I made my character on career mode and they kinda just through me in the showcase without a single tutorial or anyting, I had no clue wth I was doing. Seriously this game looks fun but I've never played and 2k basketball so I need a crash course before I can start having fun, and there is none from what I can see.
