NBA 2K9

Family Friendly Gaming
2 February 2013
  • Excerpt: I so thoroughly enjoyed NBA 2K10 on the Wii that I decided to check out the previous year on the Playstation 2. NBA 2K9 can be found on the Personal Computer, Playstation 3, an Xbox 360 as well. I should have gone back into the archives and noticed how NBA 2K7 did.

  • Summary: The gap between EA and 2K's basketball games is slowly closing, and I feel that some of this is 2K's fault more than a giant leap forward by the competition. While 2K9 can be a fluid, responsive title, the lack of smoothness in the low post game is clear.

  • Excerpt: EA Sports and 2K Sports have become bitter rivals since 2K joined the craziness that is basketball video gaming a few years back. The last few years have seen 2K Sports at the top of the leaderboard, achieving unanimously higher ratings than EA's NBA Live series.

  • Excerpt: The lockdown defense is back this year, and it has been adjusted to be more realistic and effective. Mismatches will actually be mismatches this year, which is great news for anyone who likes to utilize screens to create them.

Xbox 360 achievements
30 October 2008
  • Conclusion: Playing this game is fun and will keep you busy throughout the NBA season and beyond. Lack of player emotion is puzzling like the gameplay sometimes. It seems as though 2K is losing its lead over NBA Live and needs to come up with fixed online servers and deliver their promise of up-to-the-minute...
