2K's best effort to date and by farLet me preface this by saying the fact I'm speaking about this game 2 years later speaks volumes to how much I like it. Remember this was released in 2013, so put aside future releases for now.
So, what I continue to find so lastingly appealing about NBA 2K14 is the fact it does everything 2K13 did, but does it better, and do things it's successors didn't do.
On top of the natural, free flowing and organic commentary which feels derived from a real life broadcast, you have stunning graphics, attention to detail, realism, complexity, smooth gameplay, and an authentic NBA sim experience. Cover athlete LeBron James curated the soundtrack, arguably the game's best. And the gameplay is just a beginning. Association, MyCAREER, MyTEAM and 2K staples are all present here, but one of this game's crowning achievements is the heavily requested return of Crew mode. 2K listens to their fans, and throughout these modes, you'll notice all the unfixed bugs from 2K13 are gone; completely gone. And that makes the overall experience more pleasant. I like being able to actually see the score board after a dunk replay.
The LeBron: Path to Greatness mode harkens back to NBA 2K11 and the Jordan Challenge mode. Where the Jordan mode replicated real life highlights of Jordan's career, the LeBron mode lets you choose one of 2 hypothetical scenarios; either you 3 peat with the Miami Heat (which in real life they did not do) and create a Heat dynasty, or have LeBron leave in free agency (which he did do) to join Chris Paul and Dwight Howard on the....Knicks?! Spike Lee, you may applaud now. The main challenges with the LeBron mode are billed as a "resurgent Kobe Bryant", which I personally like, a defensive stalwart of an international player known as the "LeBron Stopper" and a player (Allen Iverson who else) that was never thought to play again.
To top it all off, you get to hit the blacktop, to let current stars play a little pickup with NBA legends. If you thought 2K13 pitted the current stars against the pioneers before them, think again. You could not get the full effect with that, but here you do. Legends vs current stars on the blacktop? Wow.
Gameplay, commentary, blacktop, the LeBron mode, Crew, MyCAREER, MyTEAM, Association, fixed bugs and more? Sign me up! NBA 2K14 is by far 2K Sports' best outing to date.

DON'T BUY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!This is by far the worst 2k series I've ever played. Even if your shot release perfect and your wide open you still miss. The game is rigged it picks one team and the other team scores all of their shots and even if you have an A+ excellent shot release it doesn't matter dont buy the game.

Ok... I suppose2K14 was a good game, but it had a couple of things that I didn't like. The graphics are the same as 2K13. The gameplay was somewhat similar to NBA 2K13, as well. But still, 2K14 was a good game to play!

It's good but it could of been better2k14 is good even though i enjoy using cheats, when you glitch the game it gets boring. So i just playing it regular it actually makes you better at 2k. So if you play someone you might blow them out if you are good at my career. GTA 5 i have not experienced it yet, so i cant comment on it.

Best 2k game yetThe Graphics, the sound and the game play are extremely amazing in NBA 2k14. The Graphics are clear and the players look like themselves. The Sound is also clear and it is never late when making a call in a exhibition game. The Franchise mode is great with fast simulation and a easy quick way to make trades. The only trouble I have is it takes too long to download new content and it freezes on the starting menu. Over all the game is fun and it would be fun to play at a party.

Copy of 2k13This is a great game however it is not that much better than 2k13. You should just buy 2k13 unless you are crazy about updated rosters like I am. I like the MYcareer mode but its not that much better than 2k13. overall I think it is just a copy of 2k13 with some stuff that are better than it here and there but it is still a great game.
