Once again, 2K Play's NBA sim shines with polished, authentic gameplay. On the consoles with high-definition graphics, the game looks fabulous. The NBA's Greatest mode is wonderful at educating players about the history of the league, while the team owner and My Player modes offer players greater control. Overall, it's a great game for any NBA fan.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
