NBA 2K18 Review

This year 2K Sports took, in my opinion, their riskiest move yet. They’ve abandoned the fully scripted story mode and instead made a living breathing online world that they call “the Neighborhood.”

NBA Live 14

Its a shame that the core basketball game still feels like it needs another couple of years of polish to even come close to its competitors. For now we are left with a solid lineup of features and a game of basketball thats just not worth anyones time.

NBA Jam: On Fire Edition

Though battling the AI is fun, it’s centered so heavily around playing with people, comparing scores and just having an arcade-style experience from the comfort of your living room that they finally seem to understand it- and if they can fix some niggling issues and get online working right, this game runs very close to perfect.

NBA Live 09 is the real deal when it comes to a great video game basketball experience. There isn’t a new mode that takes the game over the top, or a new feature that makes it best out there, but it is the combination of a vision and the hard work to get through some rough years to get to this game which is by far the best NBA Live game I have played in a long, long time.

College Hoops 2K8

Although not the strongest outing for the College Hoops franchise, I would say that it still manages to work at a very high level. If you like College basketball and are looking for a new game to wet your whistle with, then I would highly recommend you checking out College Hoops 2K8 - it’s an all around solid game of basketball.

NBA 2K8

Although this is a great game of basketball, its improvements over last year aren’t as significant as you would probably expect. Instead much of the experience felt like a tune up of last year’s game, with some more features and modes added on the side. This is a great game of basketball, and if you really want to get into the game of basketball, NBA 2K8 is a great choice.

NBA 08

NBA 08 for the PS2 may be the last time we see The Life on the PS2. I know many are hoping that the mode will transition to the PS3 (I know I am) but the franchise did give the PS2 a pretty good run. Unfortunately Volume 3 just felt too familiar to the last two outings, and we’re expecting much more for the third game in the franchise.

NCAA March Madness 07

This was a tough game to give a final score because it hits on a lot of different levels. If you are just strictly grading the game on gameplay, then NCAA March Madness shines bright. Now when you factor in the visuals, which definitely leaves a lot to be desired, it does detract away from the overall enjoyment of the game. In the end, NCAA March Madness 2007 is a decent first outing on the next-gen platform, and certainly leaves room for improvements in future installations.

NBA 06

For those that are wondering whether to purchase this game, I would highly recommend renting it first, as it is one that has a unique target audience in mind and I can see some gamers not enjoying this style. So although this game is not perfect, but if nothing else, it sure would be a good rental choice.
