NBA 2K14 was a solid, if not spectacular basketball when we reviewed It on PC. It was identical in many ways to its predecessors and had some nagging flaws that drug our opinion of it down some. Now we review NBA 2K14 for next-gen on the Xbox One. Is it the definitive NBA 2K14 experience, did 2K Sports cut too much to get it to market on time?
I’ve been a follower of the NBA 2K series since the original on the Sega Dreamcast, and my favorite NBA sim ever was NBA 2K13. Naturally I was very excited for NBA 2K14 but that can be hazardous, producing unsafe expectations. Does NBA 2K14 succeed as a follow up to 2K13 or is it a mere hold-me-over until the next-gen versions launch in November?
NBA 2K13 is being heralded across ‘net as the best basketball game ever, and it may well be so – on the consoles. On the PC, however, 2K Sports hasn’t given their usual 110%.
One of my favorite (and most conflicted, as I will detail in an upcoming article) game series’ latest entry has it’s demo out of Xbox 360 now. It’s time to take NBA 2K13 for a spin and see how it holds up.
MLB 2K12 in NBA Live 08, but with baseballs and less EA. Ok, that may not make much sense yet, but I’ll explain. There’s little worse in gaming then getting last years game at this year’s price, and that’s what we’re getting here.
NBA 2K11 was my favorite basketball game in years, probably since NBA Live 2000. The Jordan Challenge mode was fun, the My Player mode was expanded and the on-court action was great. Does 2K12 improve on it’s championship? Let’s find out.
NBA 2K12 has been on my radar for some time. With expanded My Player mode, My Legend (essentially My Player with any NBA player), and the new Legends mode with a slew of classic teams this sounds even better then last years game, which I loved. The demo arrived today on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, so I was able to give the new, improved controls a shot. Do they make the game better or worse?
In honor of the MLB All-Star Game, I’m reviewing a baseball game. The Major League Baseball 2K series has improved since it first debuted on the PC in 2009. That version stands alone as the worst experience I’ve had playing a baseball game ever – I still have harsh feelings towards MLB 2K9. How does this iteration stand? Is it a worth your time and money? To find out, ask yourself a simple question: Do I already own MLB 2K10? If so, you pretty much already own 2K11. It’s that simple.
