It’s good that our country is part of the global release of what’s probably the best hoops video game franchise. NBA 2K14 is here in the Philippines and is being exclusively marketed by X-Play Online Games Inc., one of the country’s leading video game distributors, together with game publishing frontrunner 2K Sports and developed by Visual Concepts.
NBA 2K14 features back-to-back NBA Champion and the current King of Basketball LeBron James as its cover athlete. If you think 2K13 was already polished, 2K14 has improved graphics and animations. Textures and shadings are now more precise and noticeable and actions are much more fluid and varied.
Game also improves on passing, allowing you to directly perform fakes, behind the backs, and no-look passes. Unfortunately, you have to slightly adjust your control pattern with this one because the left trigger now dictates your pass instead of your shot. Right stick now controls your shot, as well as crossovers, sidesteps, and spins.
NBA2K14 also allows you to relive LeBron James’ Path to Greatness in a mode which combines traditional franchise and single-player with additional scenarios you have to play out.
