I've never been a true fan of basketball games. However, I give them a try every once in a while. Kenny Smith is okay on the TNT post game show, but it becomes awful listening to his commentating in this game. I actually heard him say, "Nash is a poor ball handler." Next he's going to tell me that a Ferrari doesn't handle the corners well. Also, do I have to see a replay after every made basket?! It becomes annoying.
Why is it that when I make a good pass to one of the best dunkers in the league, and he receives it right under the basket, instead of dunking, he trys a hook shot?
And finally, when I perform a perfect pick and roll, and my picker rolls wide open down the lane, when I try to pass to him,the pass goes past him to a tightly guarded player outside the lane.
I can't wait till the game suspends my players for no good reason.

With the Xbox 360 out and in power. The developers put nearly all the focus on the new console and paid little attention to the xbox version. It seems more was taking out then put in. Now that i think about it, nothing was added except new rosters and some different animations.
Dont get me wrong, if you liked 2k6, chances are you will like this game. The online modes still functions the same along with the association mode (which is basically just running a team). One mode taking out was 24/7. I felt there was no reason to remove this. If your looking to get a basketball game though, this is by far the best game for the xbox. I would reccommend to anyone who wants a good simulation.
But with the lack of the new features, and the same old game being put up this year. This game only gets a 6/10.
