Summary: The only reason I gave a 3 star overall is b/c of graphics and music. Graphics are really good & the music is ok for a video game (even though it gets very annoying very quick). This game is no fun at all. This is the first and only NBA 2K series game I've purchased & I was totally disappointed. Its amazing how lousy sports games are in this 'video game era.' I remember on Sega Genesis and even PS1 how much fun sports games were.
Summary: I got this game for the sake of the update on the players from previous years, as they change in the real NBA from year to year. So, that part is cool. Most of the graphics in this game are cool and very realistic, except for the logos on the arena floors. Since when do the logos have circles around them? Weird. I like the ideas of the animations, but they need work. For example, sometimes, players seem to celebrate when they get fouled.

Summary: This is a good game with good grafics and a good shot stick system. But some times it doesn't look right when you make the guy shoot and the crossovers and other things are not as great as the NBA Live series.I rate it three stars because overall it is a goo but not an amazing game
Summary: NBA 2k7 is an ok game on the PS2, I love the player animations (star players now have shot mechanics that are similar to the way they shoot in reality) as well as some other minor improvements. The graphics still seem average to me and the overall smoothness of the game suffers a bit due to animations (check out 2k2 for what I mean, the game is super smooth in regards to player movement). It's not a huge step forward but it's a decent game.
Summary: I have always been an EA sports game player, but when I saw the reviews this year on 2k7 and EA's basketball game, I decided to go with this one. After playing so many years on EA's platform, I found myself always hitting the wrong buttons. The button layout in this game often doesnt make much sense. Like having to use the analog stick to steal, or how to do cross over moves when you have the ball.
Excerpt: i USED to be an nba live fan...until i thought about a little change in the type of games i played (EA move aside). 2k7 is such a deep game that it will keep you playing on and on. The different levels and challenges in the difficulty of the game will leave you frustrated but keep you coming back for more.
Pros: great basketball simulation . . . second to none !
Excerpt: The NBA Games have been voted best sport simulation games for the past few years, and I think NBA 2K7 will just help to establish the top slot. NBA 2K7 gives you the serious action most basketball fans love, chance to become a legend on the court and gain superstar status. NBA 2K7 has had a bit of a update, comes with different camera views and all new animations The game feels realistic and looks great when moving you man around, the controls are responsive and easy to...
