Summary: While not a huge fan of NBA Basketball (I prefer the college game, hence the 4 stars), NBA 2k7 is the best basketball SIM available for the PS3. I say SIM because this game plays more like the true game of basketball...it isn't an acarde type of basketball game. I rented the game for a week, so I didn't have enough time to build a full appreciation for the game's ups (or a full dislike of the game's downs) Pros: - player models and movement are superb.
Summary: First of all, you can't beat the graphics on this game, at least not right now. It's a lot of fun. The players are so life like right down to the way they play in real life. It's a little bit of a challenge to navigate some of the menus but other than that this game is great!
NBA 2K7 (PS3): The best until 2k10 came and dominated.

Summary: I just reviewed 2k10 and 2k8. In my 2k8 review I told everyone to stay away and play this one. I started playing this series after NBA lives cock up of live 06, I thought 05 was okay. However, 2k7 blew my mind which how much better it was. The gameplay is, in every respect, what a basketball game should be. Offensively and defensively there is a nice balance.
Conclusion: i bought this game a few months ago and loved it ever since i got it, the graphics are amazing and the gameplay is fun, especially online! however after a while it gets a bit boring and repatitive. but nonetheless its great!
Excerpt: "...and I have been playin NBA Live since I can remember so this was my first 2k sports purchase but I still feel myself being disappointed with it. To be honest the only reason I bought it was because there were no real bball games on the ps3 and I couldn\'t wait for Live 08. But now looking back maybe I should have. Live is gonna be more money but if you are looking for a real NBA game hold yourself back for it. I promise it is gonna be better than ...
Excerpt: "...had the misfortune of playing NBA Live on my 360 and I know why everyone hates the latest installment in that series, I had no clue why everyone liked NBA 2k7. Now that I have played it I can see why. Graphic wise this game is in between looking great and kind of ugly. So far out of the three PS3 games I've played none of them have been too hot in the graphics department. Character models are kind of ugly, facial wise but the way the clothes swish ...
