This game has become all hype! They still have only one shoot button!! So instead of Vince Carter dunking when he enters the paint he does a one foot jump shot. Its ridiculous!! And the rotations are horrible. If you throw the ball inside to Shaq in the paint to do a post move, he'll instead run all the way out to the three point line like he's pulling up for a jumper. Also when you try to do a pump fake, the player sometimes will do a turn around fade away. You can set up a play for a wide open player on the perimeter and they never stay still. This game let me down. Mission Impossible:Trying to get a one block forget obtaining 5 or 10 blocks in a game. Driving to the paint is darn near impossible too! I've played both 2k7 and live 07. Although live 07 isn't the best product EA sports has put out its better than 2k7 and looks better. The only good thing about 2k7 is the hang time on monster dunks.

Here we go again folks. Another installment of the 2k basketball series for next gen. I am going to start off by saying that the graphics are once again disapointing. Yeah the uniforms move and there is emotion on the players faces, but those are not next gen graphics. Even though Live 07 is not a good b-ball game, it sure beats 2k in the graphics deparment. They need to take advantage of the 360 and make the game better graphically. Last year I had a problem with subbing. I hated pausing the game everytime I had to sub in Livingston for Cassell. This year they implemented subs on the fly which is good so us gamers won't have to pause for subs. The gameplay is far better then Live, but it still needs to be worked on. I get frustrated when I call I play and the players stand still. There is even times where your own teamates get in your way and screw up the offensive play. Another thing that keeps impressing me is the presentation. The halftime show is awsome and funny as Kenny Smith talks about the good and bad players of the game. With all of this said, if 2k improves their graphics and tone up the gameplay just a bit, we would have the best b-ball game in the world. But since that was not in this years game I rated 2k7 a 7.
