2K Sports reigns SUPREME again with another great installment of NBA2K10!!!
Graphics = 10
Gameplay = 10
Player Authenticity = 10
Online Play = 10
My Player mode = 11
For those of you who like to play online, get this version of NBA2K10.
XBOX LIVE is unstoppable when it comes to gameplay and online interaction... That's why you're paying for it!
The best feature I find with this game is the MY PLAYER mode!!!
If you're a hardcore basketball fan like I am then you have already downloaded the NBA2K10 Combine to create a player to start the journey into the NBA...
First it's the Combine, Summer Circuit, Training Camp and then you're ready to play in your first NBA game with hopefully, you're favorite team!!!
It's almost like the story mode 2K Sports used to have but better because you can go through exactly what all NBA players go through...
GO BUY THIS GAME!!!
ENJOY and Good Luck at becoming an NBA All-Star!!!

I'm a longtime fan of the series - i have every year back to 06. The presentation of the game is fantastic, the player models (bodies and faces) look better and the arenas and the crowd look great. The animations of the characters i'm sad to say have taken a step backwards, there's some skating going on and they just don't look as smooth as in past years. The commentator dialog is much improved and there is a lot of it, very well done.
Here's the deal-breaker, the game stutters (sometimes badly) during gameplay - that's right, during gameplay! Very noticeable when the ball goes down into the post, lots of slowdown which actually affects gameplay, unacceptable in a fast action sports game. But it's not just in the post, i saw it many, many times during the course of several games. A reviewer on a major site mentioned the slowdown but said he had a pre-release build and was certain it wouldn't be an issue when the games ships. Let me tell you it's there and it's a real shame. Unbelievable and inexcusable. I'm sticking with 2k8 and 2k9.
