  • Summary: NBA 2K9 provides unmatched attention to detail this season with even more signature style animations, deeper franchise mode, adaptive AI for smarter gameplay, and innovative online features including Team Up for true online 5-on-5 matches, and Living Rosters for the most up-to-date player ratings and tendencies to bring the game to life like never before.

  • 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. It has dominated the competition since its inception, enjoying both critical and commercial success as a result. So don't be surprised if NBA 2K9 looks awfully similar to NBA 2K8. It does, and well, it is.

Expert Review

8 October 2008
  • Summary: NBA 2K6 was great, NBA 2K7 was great, NBA 2K8 was great, and--you guessed it--NBA 2K9 is great as well. Key additions such as more frequent roster updates and the ability to play five-on-five online are relatively minor and will probably appeal mainly to hardcore hoopsters, but thanks to time-tested gameplay and a mind-boggling number of play modes, NBA 2K9 is rock solid yet again. Let's start with what's new...or kind of new.
  • 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

  • Conclusion: NBA2K9 is another quality basketball sim from 2K Sports. While it is not perfect, it is without a doubt the best of the three NBA games available this fall.

  • Summary: Een nieuw jaar en een nieuwe basketbalgame. NBA 2K9 zorgt weer voor de nodige veranderingen die de reeks nog realistischer moeten maken. De jaarlijkse strijd tussen NBA 2K en NBA live lijkt weer een makkelijke overwinning te gaan worden voor de mannen van 2K. Maar is het genoeg om de hardcore basketbalfans weer tevreden te stellen? En zullen nieuwelingen hier wel iets te zoeken hebben?
  • Pros: Sfeervolle wedstrijden, Realistisch, Animaties zijn van een hoog niveau
  • Cons: Te moeilijk voor beginners, Ingewikkelde besturing

Review: "NBA 2K9" (PS2)

1 May 2009
  • Excerpt: ­ Natürlich gibt es wie in allen modernen Sportspielen nicht nur einen Modus, in dem Team gegen T­eam spielt, sondern es wird eine ganze Reihe an Modi geboten, die das Spiel noch aufregender machen sollen. In „ NBA 2K9 “ gibt es außer dem normalen „schnellen Spiel“, noch den Association-Mode und den Saison-Mode. Außerdem können Sie die Playoffs, ein Spiel mit einer speziellen Ausgangssituation oder ein Tournier mit einer beliebigen Anzahl an Teams spielen.
  • Pros: Gute Steuerung, Super Soundtrack, Spannendes Gameplay
  • Cons: Oft schlechte Spieleranimation, Teilweise KI-Taktik-Fehler
