I think the reviewer must of been playing the wrong game and smoking something at the same time. I've been an avid NBA2K gamer since the original game on the Dreamcast. I can say without a doubt this is the greatest basketball game I've ever played. It should easily be a 9+ and the reviewer should rescind their score!
Lmao, never sleep on Gamespot coming down with a rating that tries to kill buzz.... I believe its somewhere inbetween tho.. 8.8 would have been perfect rating.
