NBA 2K7

NBA 2K7 

 

 

Not all that glitters is gold, and not all that is rated ‘E’ for Everyone by the ESRB actually deserves such a rating. NBA 2K7 fits into this category perfectly. This basketball game tries to be realistic in the way defenses play in the NBA, but unfortunately makes the defense too strong. I also found 2K Sports would force one team making a run (editor: sports term for being the only team to score points in a time frame). Losing a game because of that can be very agitating, and make no sense.

The faces look good for the Playstation 2 (PS2), and Xbox. The players animate at a nice frame rate. The basketball can look a little small though. The cheerleaders look like they belong at a strip club, and they way they dance enforces that disgrace.

How can the ESRB get away with not mentioning language on music that has parental advisory on it? Those chaps are slacking over there, but then what is new. The music is just bad, even those at Family Friendly Gaming who have an interest in rap music did not like it. The announcers are however excellent and bring a lot to the table in NBA 2K7.

If you can handle the quirky controls in NBA 2K7, then there is plenty of replay value. Not a lot in the way of unlockables, but then getting to play all the different NBA teams is enough for most sports fans. NBA 2K7 can be found pretty cheap, but you are going to have to be desperate for a basketball game to consider spending money on this one.

The weirdest thing about NBA 2K7 is the controls. The scheme used with the buttons makes no sense at all. The game however does feel like basketball. I also could not stand the way free throws are performed, and would routinely miss easy shots. Although Shaq could easily drop them. The lesson I learned from that was NBA 2K7 does not keep it real. There are too many problems for me to find enjoyment from playing NBA 2K7.

Do we really need cheerleaders to act like that in a basketball game? It takes away so much from NBA 2K7. Add into the mix the lyrics, and one has to ask what 2K Sports and the ESRB were thinking. Even lessons about team play, and working together seem to be neglected in NBA 2K7. This franchise needs a major overhaul before sequels are released on any video game machine. Pass on this one, and you will thank me.
