8/10 Not such a bad port, just minor glitches, and online is ok until ♥♥♥♥ leave.Also, I love LeBrons Hairline detail and Chris Bosh looks like a velociraptor

Oh, why is LeBron not on the Cavs?

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.

Slight improvements in comparison to NBA 2K11. I played only one season and there was not enough encouragement to finish LeBron's Path to Greatness. The deafult sliders parameters are far away from those reponsible for adequate NBA simulation gameplay. The soundtrack is the best in the series. Nonetheless it's the best basketball game ever. Highly recommended to all NBA fans.

I miss MJ and wish I could play whole season as Bulls from their greatness and wonder if it'll ever be possible in the NBA 2K series...

I give it 8.5/10.

I bought this game when it was on sale. However, I only play the MyCareer Mode, so my recommendation is based on that. I have started and played 10-15 games with each and every position. After 200+ hours of play, I can say that a tall, scoring PG, is the most fun.

I really thought this game was going to suck, but its a pleasant surprise and worth the $10 or $15, I paid for it. I had previously bought NBA 2K13 last year and never gave that game much of a chance due to all the software problems (it crashed 24/7).

NBA 2K14 is a great game and I recommend buying it (on sale of course).

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.

I bought this game due to Docm77
and thought about giving this game a chance...
because it seemed fun.

And it is pretty fun to play for about a week.
Before playing this game i haven't even touched basketball (never got the chance)
It's pretty obvious you have to get the ball into the other hoop...
But having to learn the controls from scratch is really exhilarating.
The game has xbox controller support.

I would recommend this game to people however,
this game wouldn't interest people unless they were a fan of Basketball.
