Summary: Visual Concepts NBA games have dominated the pro hoops scene for years now and NBA 2K6 continues that streak. With heavily modified gameplay, improved AI, and a wealth of features and modes, NBA 2K6 is an incredible game that is a must own for basketball fans.
Conclusion: As an inaugural visit into next-gen hoopdom, NBA 2K6 is quite a treat. Yeah, VC needs to work on overall presentation and how to get a bit more visual oomph out of their new graphics technologies. Once they do, look out below, for they’ll be dunking on the competition hard.

Cons: Could look a bit better, strange glitches sometimes.
Excerpt: Basketball fans get ready for some slam-dunking action with the 2006 version of the NBA series when it hits the hardwood. NBA 2K6 offers the most detailed, comprehensive and all-round fun basketballing videogame experience yet.
Conclusion: At the end of the day Xbox 360 owners could do much worse than Saints Row . The amount of fun-filled gameplay that it delivers is worth the price of admission, and that’s not even factoring in the multiplayer playability or the Hollywood production values.
