*Sigh...*
Where to begin. The steam version of NBA 2K14, and practically any other NBA 2K, is a true dissapointment.

As much as I love these games... there is a limit in which you can't play the game to its full extent cleanly.
2K basically pumps the PC version out and thats it, no updates, no bug fixes, nothing. All that and these games are best left of console.
Not to mention I had to instantly refund a purchase of 2K14 because it was running 1FPS!!! took a good 30 minutes to reach past the booting screen... *sigh* REFUND! (and I have a very good PC, I'll just leave you my GPU: MSI GTX 970)

I bought the game for the nostalgia as I felt this was the last NBA 2K that was good... But that was the next-gen version, which is only available to XBOX ONE and PlayStation 4.

If you bought this game for the nostalgic enjoyment, the only way to play this game is by un-plugging your ethernet/disconnect from your internet, and that comes with the pain of restarting EVERYTHING completely once you leave the game.

This game is good, I like it, and its better on your computer than nba 2k15 and 16. Also its a lot cheaper. A lot of people complain about how this game is too hard and annoying, but if you play the game enough, and start appreciating the small things, it really is a good game. Of course as time goes on, newer games are better. Still play NBA 2k14 though.

So, I'm really bored. I'm just going to be writing reviews of random games I have in my library, starting with this one.

Recommended for any fan of basketball. Best played with a controller. Does have its glitches every now and then, but is overall still a good game despite that being the case.

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.

After playing this game for more or less 50 hours, I have come to these conclusions.

2K has done a TERRIBLE job on their PC port of NBA 2K14. Though I know this may not be the next-gen port, this game still does not meet my personal expectations and feels worse as compared to previous titles and years of the NBA2K franchise.

Over the course of my playing time, I have experienced many frustrating issues with the game. Here are some of the examples.
1. Player stats are not consistent. How is it that MyPlayer, who has maxed out his stats, miss a wide open 3-point shot with no defenders, with the shot feedback showing A+ on Shot Selection and Excellent on Release? I dont know either. This major issue happens too often that I have resorted to give up on shooting the ball, and drive it in instead.

2. Opponents are too over-powered. Though this may sound like I'm a ♥♥♥♥♥, or suck at the game, but this is a major issue that I've felt playing NBA 2K14. The opposing team seems to have stats that are not accurate to their real-life counter-parts. How is it that a CENTER is able to intercept my bounce pass when he is not quick enough to react to it? Do you really think every player is aware of a pass and is able to react to it quickly enough to steal it? I don't think so. I have experienced countless possessions that ended up in turnovers because of the over-powered oppenents.
Another stat issue is with the speed. Do you really think that a center can outrun me? A 6'8 SF with 90 speed? Yeah, of course he can! (sarcasm)
The stats in the game are not realistic, and it gives players abilities they do not possess.

3. There seems to be an issue with ball control. For some reason, MyPlayer, who has maxed out his dribble attributes, can't keep the ball in his hands without having to pass it to some other player. Even with my stats maxed, there seems to be a way for my opponents to take the ball for me. No wonder I average 4 turnovers a game.

4. Association mode is terrible. That's just to make it simple. There seems to be no way for me to get a good running team that has over 80% of team chemistry without making one of the players the STAR role that they want, even if they don't perform like a star. I had a bench player who averages 2ppg asking for a starting spot. Really now? Like that's going to happen.

5. Too many false goaltending calls! I'm so ♥♥♥♥♥♥ that 2K has made the goaltending calls more sensitive. I have been called for goaltending, even though I know for a fact that it is a clean and legit block. DUMB ♥♥♥ REFS!

6. Online is ♥♥♥♥.


I sadly regret getting this game for its full-price of $29.99. This game shouldn't even be worth $5. Terrible job 2K, if only ya'll cared about the PC players, then maybe more people will buy it.

I would definitely NOT RECOMMEND this game.

I'm still going to play it though since it's the newest 2K title.

Hope I don't break my keyboard.

Wait for 2K15 unless you absolutely have to have a sports game on your PC. The graphics and gameplay are last-gen (PS3/360), and it lacks the story aspect of the new-gen release.

Sad, since the PC has had the hardware to run a game like the PS4/X1 release for a while now.
