Summary: I'm a huge NBA 2K fan since NBA 2k2, but this is by far the worst one. Almost any attempt at a steal is a foul. Players shots are very inconsistent even when you have them down with their timing and you get perfect release, you'll be blowing wide open layups and shots from within 2 feet constantly. It should tell you something 2k is on their 3rd patch trying to fix gameplay.
Summary: This game is great. They have definitely improved upon almost everything. The character models are more realistic and gameplay feels more life-like. I love playing the My Career mode. The only complaints I have is that the cut scenes are VERY repetitive in My Career. You are forced to have conversations with the GM and press. The same 2-3 options for conversation are given constantly and you will receive the same feedback in 2-3 variations, over and over.
One of the Few Next Gen Games that Started Out Right!
2 September 2014
Summary: I haven't played a basketball game since NBA Live 10 and I have to say I can finally see what everyone loves about the 2k games. I started out last gen with NBA Live 07-08 and I was one of the few that really liked them for the arcade feel and how easy they were to play and get though quickly so you could get through a season quickly. I did have NBA 2k7 and 2k9 but found them too clunky and hard to score in however NBA 2k14 changes everything.
Summary: This is one of the best nba games ever but one problem when you tey to play games somedays you will get "This save requires an active connection to the 2k Sports servers" This wont allow you to play any games beside quick game. Some days this happens somedays it dont but if this didnt happen it would get a 5.
Summary: The graphics on this game are great. It looks like you're at the game. However, I do have problems with the 2k servers, and online multiplayer is almost impossible to do with friends or other people. I would get the 2k15 when it comes out IF, and only IF, the server problems get rectified.
Maybe you'll be able to play when you want, but probably not.

Summary: If the 2K servers are down, then you can't play any mode but quick game. And you're not buying just to play the quick game mode. And the 2K servers are ALWAYS down. worst $60 I spent this year. buy something worthwhile instead.
Summary: The graphics are amazing on this game however and I mean however ! The career mode on this game doesn't allow you to fully customize your my player. You only have the choice between 23 faces and trust me they aren't impressive. All you can do is change the hair and hair color. I will say I enjoy the story mode but you don't want to create a player you aren't satisfied with and have to restart a my career mode because you will have to watch the whole story all over again.
Summary: I really didn't like this years 2K. The graphics are great and the gameplay, lots of fun. But that fun was ruined by the endless glitches and bugs. I actually had to delete and reinstall my game because a glitch occurred in my game where the whole crowd was invisible and so was the hoop. Also I'm not a fan of the features, my player has too much talking and the voice acting is really bad. The franchise game type also had some problems that I had to research online about.
Summary: This game is fun to play with friends, but the rest of the game is garbage. You earn coins so slowly that they almost force you pay for more coins unless you want to play this game for the next 5 years. MyCareer mode is also underdeveloped. Instead of letting you actually practice to make your character, you have to pay coins for improvements. Another aspect that is terrible is that no matter how well you play, the computer can decide whether you win or lose.
