nice emotional effects
they did a really good job on the reactions from the bball players in the game and did very well on the details of each player. I hate the air plane ride segments.
NBA 2K14 is BY FAR the best Basketball game ever! For years 2KSports has DOMINATED (and for good reason) whith it's annual NBA2K Basketball game...but if you seen the new NBA 2K14 "OMG" trailer, then you will see, they got it right with the title! Out of every next game I've seen so far..NBA 2K14 really brings it with it's graphics! It looks so real (especially Kevin Durant) it might make your eyes water! I'm soooo getting this for the PS4!
Great graphics, but that's about all.
I was given this game for my PS4 and told to enjoy it. After booting it up and attempting to play it for an hour, enjoyment is not what I got from it; I took it out of my PS4 put it in it's box and am wondering how I can get something else more worthwhile? The graphics in this game are hyper-realistic, but I could not find a single place in the game with the controller button layout, so I was left to figure out the unintuitive controls on my own... I say unintuitive, because there is really no rhyme or reason to the layout they have chosen. Also, had some longer load times than others in the series. If you are a die-hard basketball fan, I'm sure you would trudge through these obstacles to find some form of enjoyment out of this title, but I did not. I'm not asking anyone to agree with my review, I'm just writing why this game was very "off-putting" to me and hopefully if some of you are on the fence about this purchase you will find this small review useful in your final decision.
The Bar has been set
This game in terms of what you look for in a sports game is the new standard. The Graphics are AMAZING. From the facial features , sweat, details , everything looks great. The myplayer mode is where the game stands out. This mode is like a basketball reality series. You start out with your childhood friend as your agent. You have plenty of career altering options that can affect team chemistry, playing time, sponsers, deals. You have a rival now. I was draft by the kings and Cousins tested me by demanding the ball I threw it to him and after the game he congratulated me for being a team player. These things are part of what a NBA rookie goes through on the way to stardome. Even things like dealing with an injury or standing up for a teammate who was fouled hard resulting me in being fined and suspended were cool. This is what a career mode should be.
NBA 2K14 (PS4): Let's Be Honest...
NBA 2K14 is certainly the much better basketball title. But how much so? Very much so. However, there is plenty about this game that just bother me. Although everyone's body build is seemingly unique, jerseys still hover over the players' bodies as well as constantly contorting in unrealistic fashions even going through players. Furthermore, it bothers me that everyone's facial expressions are ALL based on LeBron James' facial scan. It is very obvious he is the only one they brought in for face scanning. Finally, why does your MyPlayer sound like he came straight out of the 'hood? I'm more than certain the folks down at 2KSports can afford more than one voice actor to say the same sets of lines. Also, creating your character has been down-sized greatly limiting how unique your MyPlayer can really be. Nonetheless, 2KSports is taking us in the right direction in this new generation that is finally upon us. Features such as improved facial expressions, halftime interviews, and a more intimate MyPlayer mode are just a few things that will only get better as the years go on.
Next Gen has arrived!
Wow! Great visuals, gameplay is top notch. For their first next gen effort, 2k did a real nice job. A few audio quirks here and there, and some minor clipping that occasionally takes place, but not a deal breaker. I really like that I didn't need to tweak any sliders to get an authentic NBA experience right out of the box. If only we could get a next gen 2k NFL game, what a great day that would be. I guess it doesn't hurt to dream, right? If you want a truly memorable next gen experience, then you must pick up this game! You will not be disappointed.
great game, minor problems
NBA 2k14 is a great game and frankly i could play this thing all day. graphics are awesome except for some of the player faces, especially in "My Player". im pretty happy with all the animations and the way players move, is very realistic almost life like. however there is not alot of options when you create a player in 'My Player'. you can't really make him look like you and there are few things you can change about his appearance. as far as just creating a player and putting him on a roster and using him on other game modes is non existant, which i was really dissapointed in and couldn;t figure out why they removed that feature. if you can look past all that then i would say this is a pretty good game and would reccomend it.
I fully paid my ps4, watch dogs & nba2k14..can't wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The PS4 is going to destroy the xbox none, i meant one
Pretty neat game for Basketball lovers
The graphics are great thanks to the PS4. The game play is nice because there is a new game mode called MyCareer. Its like you being an NBA star. The sound usually cuts off for me like the commentators but then the sounds back. The main reason I got this game is because of MyCareer. So the appeal is stil there because of that.
I thought that next-gen meant better, boy was I wrong. The current-gen version of this game rocks. They did however drop the ball when it comes to the PS4 version. The ripped out a ton of game modes that most of us hard core ballers love only to give the game better graphics. I love 2K and I'll always buy their games, but this one went back to GameStop the day after I bought it. I seriously hope that 2K15 has all our favorite game modes. What a let down.
