NBA 2K14

Overview -

Once again it's fall and for hoop fans of the digital variety that means one thing and one thing only, 'NBA 2K' is back, baby! Doing away with the retro themed covers of the last few years, 'NBA 2K14' features The King himself, Lebron in all his chalk tossing glory. And it's appropriate, as this year's title includes an entire mode that focuses on King James and his quest for NBA immortality.

Video Review


On a widescreen 1440 X990 display with the highest settings the game is gorgeous, sweat glistens off the body and jerseys flutter realistically as the players move. If your rig can't handle the max just dial down the anti-alias and crowd detail levels which are notorious resource hogs, and it should run fine. Of particular note this year is the added animations, which are awesome. You only have to see the awkward missed high five once to appreciate how close this is to real life NBA action.

Audio Review


The music for the 2K series never disappoints, and this year the tracks have been chosen by Lebron himself so you know they must be good... I'm mean I'm just saying he is the King. The track list is impressive and features artists ranging from Eminem and Drake to Daft Punk and The Gorillaz, there's something here for everyone. In any case, the commentary is the real highlight with more than 50 hours of new commentary from Kevin Harlan, Clark Kellogg, and Steve Kerr added to last year's bank. If you ever wanted an anecdote about Emeka Okafor you are in for a treat.

All in all a great addition to one's library, provided you haven't played last year's game. I was a little disappointed with the lack of additions but seeing as 2K Sports and Visual Concepts have probably directed most of their resources towards the Xbox One and PS4 versions of the game while still adding some features to the current version, I can give a forgive a few omissions.
