Good, but not much different from previous outings

NBA 2K6 is as good as it has ever been, but that is also its downfall. If you've played previous NBA 2K games you're basically getting it with a decent graphical boost. If you haven't played it before then there is a fresh deep basketball experience waiting for you.
pros-looks good, has deep franchise modes, game play is solid, so are the voice-overs.
cons-feels a little stale if you've played previous 2K basketball games

As the title states if you want a quick 1000 achievement points then rent this game. Personally, I don't think it's that great of a game - then again i was never a fan of basketball games.
You can seriously earn all of the achievements in on game.... I have no other thoughts whatsoever on this game, so if you like sports game do not based your opinion on renting/buying this game from what was stated above. Only base it if you want to earn a quick 1k achievement points.

NBA 2K6 i am going to say is a very deceiving game. At first it may appear to be a stinking pile of bad, because to any gamers new to the title or any in it's series the game has a much stepper learning curve than its counterpart NBA Live 06 witch has very simple controls. But NBA 2K6's games once you climb up the learning curve will be very rewarding and you just might not be able to put it down it's so good. In short, all this game takes is a little time to get to know it, but once you understand to at first confusing (to me anyhow) shot stick and master dule player control this could possibly be one of the best NBA basketball games out there.
