NBA 2K9 (PS3) Review

  • Summary: All in all, 2K9 is a great basketball game. The game has set new standards for visuals and sound in a sports game, and I think it could be quite a while before somebody tops those efforts. With the gameplay as fun as it is, 2K9 could be a constant visitor to your PS3’s Disc-Tray.

  • Excerpt: If there’s one thing that is agreed about American sports games in recent years it’s that EA generally seems to have the market well under control. Madden is one of the best selling games in the NA region, and with a whole plethora of other titles under the “EA Sports” logo, it can be daunting for...

  • Excerpt: No sports team wants to peak early. Yet, that's the problem facing the NBA 2K series. The hoops franchise has endured few missteps throughout its long-running history, first with Sega and now with Take Two, so it hasn't had to learn from its mistakes.

NBA 2K9 (PS3)

Crispy Gamer

  • Excerpt: On its default settings, the game is tilted towards the offense more than any NBA 2K title before it. This is largely due to the offensive artificial intelligence's ability to thread the needle on passes into the paint, dropping dimes that would make Steve Nash green with envy.

  • Conclusion: It's disappointing that there aren't more noteworthy additions to this year's game. Living rosters and five-on-five play are nice, but their appeal is limited. That said, there's very little not to like about NBA 2K9.
  • Pros: Gameplay is excellent, Fewer missed layups this year, Living rosters provide up-to-the-minute statistical changes, Announcers do a nice job calling and analyzing the action, Signature player animations look great.
  • Cons: Very few noteworthy additions, Free throws are still harder than they should be, Controls are too complex, Play-calling and ads sometimes obscure gameplay.
