Summary: I think 2K sports did a great job with this game. It was a major step up from NBA 2K9 (which was a major step up from 2K8). The new "My Player" mode was kind of buggy, but a wonderful addition nonetheless. The "crew" games were extremely buggy. I only rated this game a 2 because 2K took down the service for the crew games not even 15 months after the game's release. I understand it was buggy, but you can't expect people to get the most out of it in only 15 months.
Summary: I bought 2k10 because I had an itch to play some imaginary basketball--I had high hopes. But this game is full of so many glitches it's ridiculous. I can't count the number of times it has frozen up my box or had a glitch that makes me quit the game because there's no way out of it. This isn't just with me either--it's across the board for everyone who plays it. If you have to play some ball and only pay like [...
Summary: I have bought the 2K series of NBA basketball ever since the Sega Dreamcast. This is by far the worst game in the series that i ever experienced. In this game, i have witnessed AI on my team mess up on assignments leaving their men wide open for a dunk/layup. It is like they are playing for the other team. The Association mode, the computer trades don't make sense...well, this has been the case for the last couple of years.
Summary: Lets start off by saying that I've been a fan of the 2K Basketball series for awhile now (played 2k6-2k10) but 2k10 is just horrible. The sound is amazing, you feel like your actually in the game. For example, when you make a game winning shot the fans and commentators will react. Online is where this game goes downhill, horrendous lag, would take you about 10 mins to find a game because of the constant freezing.
Summary: Disclosure: I only play franchise mode, not online. Once again the video game review sites have managed to convince me to buy the 2k series over the NBA Live series, and once again I'm baffled: what game were they playing? Because the reviews all manage to gloss over the sluggish, awkward, counter-intuitive gameplay. The reviewers love to focus on the graphics, the modes, the online play, yadayadayada.
Summary: The game looks good in the commercials but has terrible gameplay. The makers obviously don't care about the gameplay at all. The fact of the matter is, is that graphics don't really matter much for a basketball game. They obviously focus all of their capital on making the game have better graphics. Usually 2k releases pretty good games, which makes this even more disappointing.
Summary: It feels like basketball is the red headed stepchild sport to video game makers. 2k10 continues the disappointment. The graphics are improved, as they are every year (although the players do have a weird chunky look to their bodies sometimes, but no biggie), but the fun of playing hasn't changed much. Scoring is a little broken toward the inside and the defense is still no good. There's just no realness or enjoyment to running your defensive looks.
Little features don't mean anything since the gamplay sucks.

Summary: NBA 2k10 is absolutely horrible and frustrating to play. Sure the graphics, commentating, etc are great features in this game, but it seems 2k sports forgot what makes a game good. The gameplay, not miscellaneous features. The default game settings make the game too hard to win. I mean you could have one of the best three point shooters wide open from downtown, the result is a brick.
Pretty Terrible- I can't apologize for this any more

Summary: I've been playing the 2k series for years, and while 8 wasn't a giant leap forward, and 9 had some issues, nba 2k10 is just a bad video game. It's created more problems without solving old ones. A few nice features like association mode or the gimmicky myplayer mode don't fix this game's glaring problems. First, online play is terrible- if you need confirmation, just check out any number of other reviews. It was released broken and hasn't been fixed.
Summary: This has got to be the worse nba2k game for online play. the servers are always down. league play is a joke(does not work). 2k10 has the worse glitches( freezing, passing out of bounds game stops in animation etc.) of any nba2k game. avoid this game, hopefully they come out with a better game next year.If you can buy this game for 20 bucks, that about what this game is worth. DO NOT PAY FULL PRICE FOR THE GAME!! You will be disappointed.
