Excerpt: NBA 2K14 on 2K Gamesin uusin tulokas vuonna 1999 alkunsa Sega Dreamcastilla saaneessa koripallosarjassa. 2K14 on siis sarjassaan kuudestoista peli, muutama vuosipäivitys on vielä matkaa, jotta peli voi juhlia 20-vuotistaivaltaan, kuten Electronic Arts tänä vuonna oman NHL-pelisarjansa kanssa. Sitä ennen NBA 2K-pelisarja todennäköisesti tulee sisältämään vain pieniä parannuksia – niin on ainakin ollut parin, kolmen viime pelin ajan.
Pros: + Uudet pelimuodot, + Presentaatio ja NBA Today!, + Pelattavuus, + Pelaajatilastot muuttuvat oikean elämän mukaan, + Euroliiga..
Cons: - ..Joka on vain puoliksi mukana, - Pelaajien animaatio välillä töksähtelevää ja robottimaista
