Conclusion: Overall there isn't a lot to detract from NBA2K7 as a purchase for any PS3 sports game fan. The action is as deep and varied as ever, and providing you can put in the time to learn the nuances of the control scheme and the benefits of playing to the strengths of your favourite team, this is as deep...
Conclusion: THE VERDICT: NBA 2K7 is all anyone could expect from a basketball game. It's tricky at first, and navigating the menus is something of a nightmare, but those with more than a couple of hours to spend will find NBA 2K7 has a lot to offer.
Though not without flaws, NBA 2K7 is a great basketball simulation.

Summary: With NBA live taking a seat on the bench and NBA 07 pulling up lame, the PlayStation 3 launch represents a great opportunity for Visual Concepts to establish the NBA 2K series as the dominant basketball sim on the PS3. And that's just what it has done.
Pros: Individual player shots look great, robust online play, terrific animation, more gameplay modes than you can shake a stick at

Pros: Individual player shots look great, Robust online play, Terrific animation, More gameplay modes than you can shake a stick at

Excerpt: Sports games, especially the kind that get released each and every year, are the most difficult games to review. Even worse are the kind of sports games that are of high quality as the developer wants to change very little of their product as they don’t want to break the winning formula they have...
Excerpt: Volgens velen was en is NBA 2K7 die eerder dit jaar op de andere consoles uitkwam, de beste basketbal game die ooit gemaakt is. De gameplay was beter dan ooit, de geweldige AI en de goed uitgewerkte hoeveelheid aan opties zorgden voor een goede game.
