Fair

Could have been great but feel very short

The graphics are great.

The gameplay is good considering how tough basketball games are to make fun for playing both the CPU and a human opponent.

But the My Player mode doesn't function correctly and freezes after the first season, online doesn't work properly and there are way to many glitches during the game.

At first I thought this is a very, very good game but as I played more I was very disappointed. I think I gave it such a low rating because this game had so much potential. It is a shame!

Whether it was rushed or not, it feel very short.

Really Bad

Let's be honest

I know there is a 2K live war and I have been a fan of 2k for the last 3 years but i will not sit here and act like this game is great just to be loyal to the series. 2K10 has tons of glitches and issues.
issues: The game literally has no defense.
shot percentages are unrealistically high (i lost a game shoot 75% on superstar because the CPU shot 86%, the real NBA is more like 44-57% for the winning team) i am yet to play a game where the losing team shot less than 59%.
Open shots miss waay!! too much.
Cutting big men make every basket.
thousands of alley oops thrown and completed.
did i mention defense is non-existent.
AI Offense moves GREAT without the ball, AI defense never follows, never.
Glitches:
backcourt, overdribbling, bad passes on fast breaks (shouldn't have to direct pass on a fast break). Out of bounds, stupid refs.
good things:
animations
turbo system
blocking shots (when the slider is up)
my player (gets repetitive)
commentary
At the end of the day it's hard to justify playing a basketball game without good playcall excution and defense. Theres offense and theres defense that's what makes it a sport. 2k10 is not a sport it's a game. A good game but a horrible sim.

2k did the same thing with servers last year when '09 debuted. CANNOT ACCESS ONLINE FUNCTIONS. I think they want everyone to try the other stuff before they open up online.
