When I heard that 2k sports will release NBA for PC, I was really excited. And I was right. This game totaly beats NBA Live series in every aspect. Graphic is great, it's the first next-gen graphic in any sport game. Gamplay is awsome, but you must adjust the sliders for the gameplay to be more realistic. There is some problem with menu lag, but other than that this game is perfect. You can't get tired of it, because almost every game you play is very exciting. Association mode is really good, there are all sorts of stats that you can look at, and I also like signature plays that you can wiew after the game. The top 3 plays are a little streange, because they are usually just some random plays from the game. Anyway a great game, that is really worth to buy. Oh and I think that it plays better without the official patch.
