Do not purchase if you plan on playing a career!
I usually do not write a review, but I felt that everyone should know not to purchase this game. I was amazed by the graphics and the gameplay, until I started a new career. I played in a season, association and exhibition mode with no problems. Then I started a career mode and that's when my 5 star review ended up a 1 star. After a few games into mycareer, the game FREEZES in the middle of gameplay or even at the loading menu. I have done my research after this fact and it has been an ongoing problem since OCTOBER!! I hate the fact that NBA2K does not pride themselves to fix the problems but rather produce more titles! This is my last NBA2K title that I will buy. I have bought NBA2k13, and that game had issues as well.
NBA 2k14 is a huge step back from 2k13. It's very glitchy, online and offline. THe Ball randomly throws itself across the whole court at least once a game. You can block anything, the AI is stupid, etc. Dont spend this type of money on this game.
2k14 is the best 2k game by far but.... in mycareer mode the defense is terrible, it is extremely hard to get on a hot streak, and when you get block they will call it a turnover, so if they fixed that it would be game of the year in my opinion.
the best one yet
The control scheme is a little different than the old ones but as you get used to it you realize the excellence that this game brings. go through the tutorial and really love how to play and you'll have a blast
WORST 2K EVER!! DO NOT BUY
This game is officially the worst basketball game, a HUGE STEP bacwards, I have never in my life played such an atrocious game. I would rather play NBA 2K10
not nearly as good as 2k13
Nba 2k14 is a game that is terrible on the ps3 and xbox 360 due to its poor gameplay and unreal stunts. the game has a great soundtrack and good graphics and that is all that is good about this game. hopefully it is better on ps4. if you have nba 2k13 you are not missing out on anything, I would even prefer nba 2k13 over nba 2k14
Overrated and not that good
To start with I have been buying NBA2K for several years now and despite online issues have been very pleased with the product released, until now. The game is beyond unrealistic with a thousand of poor animations that are designed to let the computer win. For starters my players regularly miss wide open threes, and I don't mean they are bad three point shooters I mean they are Ray Allen regularly missing wide open threes in the corner. The mean time the computer is a relative Stephen Curry beyond the arc no matter who it is. Secondly the dribble controls stink, no matter who is dribbling every other spin move is a turnover that leads to an easy score while the computer is yet again unbeatable when dribbling. Lastly no player can shot in the paint. On several occasions I have missed wide open layups with Lebron and Chris Bosh and am regularly losing the ball when I pump fake and no one even goes after the ball. All in all 2k14 is an unrealistic piece of junk that everyone was hyping when in reality all 2k cared about was the next gen version of the game. My recommendation is to stick with 2k13 at least 2k cared about that game enough to make it good.
This Game Sucks
I played on the ps3 for about 30 minutes. I saw that it was just like nab 2k13. I went straight to the store and returned it. Don't buy this game, you will regret it. Also it doesn't have the same cutscenes like the ps4 version does. I hate all who created this game for ps3.
it's great must own
great gamplay haven't played a game like this in years it;s even better on ps4. I hope next year is even better.
This game is great because every thing that the players do is amazing the only thing that's bad is that you get blocked at the rim to much
