Average Overall Score:
7.00 / 10

I have not visited the NBA 2K series since 2K2, but seeing as how this years edition came out at the buzzer beater price of $19.99, along with the ESPN brand, I thought I\'d give it a go. There are many mode, including a franchise (association), street mode, and a 24/7 story type mode."

Overall: This game is awesome. It has way better graphics than NBA Live 2005, and the 24/7 mode is great. It is also have the price of Live.
Gameplay: The gameplay has a good flow to it,even though it is pretty hard to get to the basket uncontested. Other than that this game is great.
Graphics: The graphics are the best in the business. You can tell exactly who the players are without looking at their jersey.
Sound: It is awesome that you can import your own music to the game, just like ESPN Football. The default music pretty good too.
Suggestions: Make the free throw shooting system easier. Its really hard to control three things at once.

Overall: Worst basketball game ever in my opinion. You get what you pay for I guess. Very slow pace for the game and it's nearly impossible to drive. I just put it back on ebay and am buying NBA Live 2005.
Gameplay: You've got season, 24/7, xbox live, street ball, etc. Game is very slow-paced and too much of a sim.
Graphics: Just like ESPN NFL 2k5 the graphics are amazing and the ESPN presentation is as well. This is the one high point in the game.
Sound: Terrible commentators........
Suggestions: Stop the ESPN NBA 2k series. You get what you pay for.

Overall: 40 %
Gameplay: 50 %

Sound: 60 %
