Rated 1 out of 10 by imank4 TERRIBLE GAME
I seldom write reviews, but this game is so bad I have to write a review as a warning to other people. This game is ATROCIOUS. There are WAY too many turnovers from loose balls, knocked loose mostly by your own teammates because they seem to always run in front of you to knock the ball loose. The physics are way off and the animations are poor and redundant. You have little to no control over your own players a lot of the time. The game does not reward veteran players, it rather keeps the game close and basically forces you to constantly miss open shots to bring your shooting percentages back down to average, regardless of momentum, hotspot, or shooting ability. The AI teammates stand around like mindless ragdolls and make nonsense plays and the graphics are basically recycled from NBA 2K13. This whole review does not even include anything about the online gameplay which is another level of atrocity that I'm not even going to go into detail about. NBA 2K14 is by far the WORST 2K game ever made.

I pre-ordered the game and picked it up the night it came out. I took it home and played it against a friend. It feels like I am playing a downgraded 2K13 and a slightly upgraded 2K12. So far I am more tempted to go back to Gamestop with intentions of trading it in, just taking the $20+ loss, and playing 2K13 this year. The gameplay was difficult to get comfortable with (we played on Hall of Fame and 7 minute quarters), the pro stick is weird, and they have the same block AIs as 2K12 (anyone who played 2K12 knows what I mean). It seems, so far, like a dud. It may be better later, but right now, it seems like an epic fail. I still have more exploring to do, but trading it back in seems that more attractive. The soundtrack is good. The fancy passes are awesome, but you have to time them right and know when to do them. I still don't understand why they keep changing the controls around. 2K13's controls were perfect once you got use to them. These controls just seem....unnecessary.
Rated 9 out of 10 by awesome14 Fantastic but......
This game is amazing! but it's not new. it's basically an add-on to 2k13. when i first started playing it i literally thought i was playing 13. but after a while i realized the graphics were better, and the gameplay was smoother. the thing that got me was the offensive difficulty. I played blacktop as LBJ vs. Joel Anthony on the easiest difficulty, and Joel won!! the AI's defense is ridiculous!!!!! i play as an all-star guard and he is easily guarded by a center. the dribble moves have no effect on defenders unless you break their ankles. the only way to score on your own is by screen-play (pick and rolls), which is easy once you get used to it. but it just angers me that dribble moves are irrelevant no matter what position is guarding you. and defense is difficult, but you get used to it after playing for a while. they still need to work on smarter teammate AI. they do not know when to shoot (You can "ask" them to, but they almost never listen), when to drive, or when to pass it. so other than the difficult offense, great game!
Rated 0 out of 10 by XBox360Forever NBA 2K13 It Terrible. Not Pre-Ordering This Junk.
I was very disappointed with NBA 2K13. Why did I become a starter after 2 months with a skill level of 69 when OJ Mayo has a skill level of 85? lol!! Then I'm on the podium being criticized by the media and social media when we lost and I only played 20 mins in the game. Your CPU A.I is terrible. Doesn't box out. Allow other teams to get ridiculous amounts of OR. No fouls are hardly ever called on the CPU. Every steal attempt your rookie does is a foul. I went back and played NBA 2K12 which was 100x's better. I'm already on my 4th (82 Game) season. VC (Virtual Currency) sucks. 2K Sports forces you to pay REAL MONEY to buy VC so you can level up your virtual players attributes. It's complete BS. Earning these VC on the court is a lot harder now. You literally have to play the NBA 2K MyLIFE game on the net to serious build up your VC and it's time consuming. Like 6hr for every session you play. It's like SimCity for the NBA.
Rated 1 out of 10 by Atty313 Horrible.
This game is horrible, they took the worst approach ever and jumped all over it. The last game makes this game honestly look like a joke, players lose the ball everywhere and it doesnt matter who it is, players go out of bounce at random times and apparently theres a new way to play defense, which is run into people and cause them to lose the ball then have a fast break the other way. This game sucks, i hope nba 2k stops making games after this because this was a joke. Almost everything in the game is exactly the same except for the horrible gameplay in this one and some different colors. I dont see how anyone believes this is an improvement. OH ALSO THEY RUINED THE RIGHT STICK, now apparently it dribbles and shoots without using L? So now.. you just shoot while doing dribbles.... Bad game, 0/10 if i could, I hope live comes back n puts these guys in there place.
Rated 4 out of 10 by Rainman97 So disappointed...
So im in Gamestop all the time right? well anyways they had this commercial on every time i went in there. Lebron is in the dark to keep his identity hidden and Steve Kerr is interviewing him. And they go on to say 2K is doing big things this year. This is going to be the greatest sports game of all time. I was skeptical but excited. So I take it home today and am disappointed in less than 5 minutes. The first thing they did that was a turn off was a knock off Lebron speech at the launch speech practically copying what madden did with Ray Lewis in Madden 2013, so i skipped Queen James. The Created characters look exactly the same as last year. There were absolutely NO graphics improvements to them or the game-play whatsoever . You know how all the created characters just have that.. look.. well, its still there. And lastly the only new thing was a Lebron: road to glory (or something like that) mode that you could play. kinda like who gives a..... well ya know. All this game is doing is feeding Queen James's Ego. Its just a really sad game in the fact you can buy NBA 2K13 for about half the price and play the same thing.

I highly recommend you guys to buy this game.NBA 2K14 is a fun game.Especially the game play.It is fun and it is also entertaining.NBA 2K14 is so far the best 2K title of It's generation.Although there weren't some improvements in the graphics and it is clearly identical to last year's 2K13 but still that doesn't matter.The dunks and moves in this game looks cool and it is way more better than the other 2K titles.You can also make your own characters and even make a basketball team in this game.You can also choose what kind of dunk your player will do and the Historical Jordan dunk is really awesome.Even the Historical Drexler dunk is also awesome.This game rocks so It gets a 10/10 from me because of the game play.So I recommend you gamers to buy this new game and try playing It and I bet that you will have a fun time with this game.
Rated 1 out of 10 by AngryOstrich Pathetic, flawed attempt
It is clear that 2K sports had their priority set on making 2K14 revolutionary for the xbox one, while not caring at all for the 360 version. It is almost identical to 2K13 yet they found a way to make it worse. The actual games themselves have very noticeable "runs" in which it is virtually impossible to score if you are on the bad side of the "run" and impossible to miss if you are on the good side. These runs do NOT come from scoring consecutively, they are somewhat random. The computer influences the outcome of the game far too much, so much so that your players noticeably become worse during dry spells to the point that they cant even catch the ball. There are countless glitches where you end up out of bounds or throwing the ball out of bounds for absolutely no reason. It is a terrible game. Do NOT buy it for the 360.
