NBA 2K14 Review

NBA 2K14 is one of the greatest games in the video game market. This video game franchise has been around since NBA 2K (2000). From then it just kept evolving into the game that it is today. The players in the game have the ability to block dunks and make flashy passes. Additionally, there are fancy graphics, crazy animations, other teams from other leagues, entertaining game modes, and old school players. Read the full review at:

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (6 ):
Yes, the critically acclaimed NBA 2K series is back with a near-slam-dunk hit on its hands. For one, the game feels great. The tweaked controls make your offensive game and defensive moves much easier to master. Each player now has a half-dozen signature skills, with new animations that make the players look and act even more lifelike (the artificial intelligence, however, needs a bit of tweaking when you're playing computer-controlled opponents). Back again is the online Crews mode, in which you can face off in five-on-five battles with other crews (PS3 and Xbox 360 only). From the enhanced controls and vast number of modes to the slick presentation, NBA 2K14 is a highly recommended basketball game for fans of the sport.
