Things NBA 2K14 Needs To Raise The Bar Higher
I have been a 2k sports fan for years especially the NBA 2k franchise. I would like to see the draft combine from NBA 2k10 brought back with the summer circuit. Maybe the possibility of playing in the NCAA Tournament or better yet all the above because that would actually be a real MyCareer. I never played crew but I did play 3v3 blacktop and liked it so I wouldn't mind playing a 5v5 on blacktop. Defiantly higher VC Salaries especially when you work hard to get drafted high. when you don't do good I would like to see people get drafted 2nd round or get drafted whatever round play in the summer circuit and if you don't do good get sent to the D-League or if you don't like the D-League have the option to play in the Euro-League. Also I would like to have a MyCareer Mode where you can play an online association with your friends. Also NBA 2K should insert NBA MyLife let you have a MyCrib and let you do events like party, charity, practice and have the coach call for mandatory practice and when you don't show have a penalty and have to explain yourself in a press conference or to the GM. That would really drive sales through the roof guaranteed. But regardless I'm getting NBA 2k14.
2k14 on both ps4 and xbox1 is horrendous
I've played this game on both systems and same problem exists when I'm playing my career and quick game against another person. first, in my career, you can't make your own player which is a big let down, i don't want to play through some poorly scripted and thought out story line as a player who can't make any shot if his life depended on. its the same for both the ps4 and xbox1. now biggest issue with this game no matter how much i enjoy the graphics, gameplay is wack, how is it that no matter who i play with, i am not able to make excellent shots with a grade of A but yet can at times make shots graded F with no problem. then theres the defensive aspect of gameplay which is the last straw, i took this game back after a couple days of tolerating this rip off worthless game. when i play against another person and even against the ai, they can steal the ball easily but when i try it no matter what its always and i mean always a foul, I've played the same settings as others and same thing, this was the biggest letdown.
im so pumped , I cant wait for this game to release , I know I wont be disappointed because 2k always brings the best basketball game experience + now the upgraded graphics of the xbox one will make the visuals life like
Better on xbox one
This game is so much better than its counterpart on the xbox 360 and way better than Live 14 which I owned and took back with in 4 hours. Nba 2k bis fantastic in graphics and gameplay. The only thing I wish was that in my career the A.I. Would shoot the 3 when they are open they always pump fake. I wish this game should fix that other than that the game is great. They fixed the dribbling and getting poked easily. It looks more realistic when you lose the ball by running in to a teammate. Plus I love the ability to have personality badges and to pick an arena sound when you shoot a 3 or dunk the ball. VC is still hard to get but worth it when you get your guy up. This game is the best game on xbox one besides rise.
Not that good
Positives great graphics fun to play
negatives mycareer is awful itis completly scripted and i had a goal get 12 assist so not hard i average 10 .7 they make it impossible to pass and i had like 9 turnovers 2 assist at the end of 2 quarters ... my gm is terrible stuff pops up ever 10 seconds and you can have 5 files of my gm and my career combined!! so you have to delete one everytime basically. Online Leagues is basically broken you cant even start one. Basically 2k did a bad job like usual and never fixed any of it... VERY dissapointed don't buy this game
Best NBA game to date.
This game is terrific from its core principles to the little details. The big step they took was adding story mode to my career, with voice acting and cut scenes, which added a new realism to the game and a truly rewarding experience. MyGM can be a bit repetitive but it is enjoyable and an improvement. My team and the other online game modes are still the same except for the park which people don't understand how to use, but of course there will be errors at first then everybody will begin to enjoy it. My career isn't insanely hard at all or anything, the game is more difficult in its core mechanics as you can't drive as easily, or pass as blindly, and the new isomotion controls are confusing at first but worth it once you learn them, so just be more aware and think before you do anything or else you will make a bad play. The only complaint i have is not everyone voice acts but rather moves their head with subtitles underneath, so i hope they improve that next year, but all in all, a fantastic game worth a purchase and deserving of the 10 i gave it. Also, don't purchase nba live, the graphics are equal to 2k11 on a ps2, the gameplay is too simple and just doesnt compare to nba 2k14.
DO NOT BUY
Everyone please trust me on this. DO NOT BUY THIS GAME. The actual gameplay and graphics on this game are absolutely amazing, but all you can do is play quick games. I had this game since launch and it was working perfectly fine and then about a week ago, none of the game modes(MyPlayer and MyGM) work anymore. They all just crash back to the home screen. I am not the only one experiencing these problems, just search the internet and you will see countless complaints. I tried uninstalling the game to fix it and that didn't work either. I'm smelling a LAWSUIT coming. Yes, people are going to say no one forced me to buy the game, but if a car manufacturer advertised a car that gets 50 mpg and in reality it only gets 10 mpg, I'm sure some sort of legal action would be taken right away. I didn't buy this game to just play Quick Game. I bought it for all the features( MyPlayer and MyGm). Their customer/technical service is god awful and don't respond to anything.I expect some sort of refund from. I bought the game from Gamestop new and I cannot return an opened product for a refund, and I certainly don't want to trade it in for another broken NBA 2k14 game.
A Huge Stepping Stone
I will admit that as far as a comparison to the 360 version, there are only two differences I see. One being the graphics, the other being the "off-court" gameplay. The graphics look a lot better in every way. Even little things look really good especially the stuff that matters. When you are on the court the players move more fluidly, the jerseys move about as players move. The little things add up in this game and make the overall experience better. There are some faults with the graphics. The way the water bottles look comes to mind; they almost look completely invisible sitting on a table, all you see is a label and a cap. The "off-court" gameplay is the main differences. You interact with people and actually talk to them. Endorsements are much more realistic as far as choosing what ones you want and what you need to do to get them. Most of the rest of the game is the same as the 360 version. While they are not big differences, this game shows he potential moving forward. I have no doubt that 2k15 will be one of the best from what they have put out on this one in such a short period of time.
So pumped for this, super excited. Looks great. I've always loved 2k, and very excited to get it on the next gen consoles.
This was the first NBA 2K game that I bought straight up for the $60 dollars. It was worth the money and I may even buy 2K15 brand new when it comes out. I'm not a huge fan of Basketball (I love to play, but watching is different), but this game really got me hooked. The GM Mode is what got me. I love being in charge of a team and building it on my own, and that is exactly what GM Mode is. You are responsible for signing and drafting players to improve your team and eventually win and NBA Championship. It's a really rewarding process. Trades are pretty realistic and it is overall a great experience. The online play is solid as well. I enjoyed playing 5v5 online. It really takes a lot of teamwork to win those matches and it is fun to see some of the moves and tricks that the players have up their sleeves. I played the story line a little bit, too. You get to create your own character and go through the draft process and play out their career as an NBA player. There is a lot to do with this game and the experience I got out of it was great. This truly is a FUN game, and that's all that really matters in the end. It has gone down in price, and we are still a few months away from the release of NBA 2K15. If you have a way to rent or borrow it, definitely give it a try. Sports games come out annually, so if you want to wait it out for 2K15, that's cool, too. You really can't go wrong with this game.
