GIZORAMA - NBA 2K14 continues to shine as the premiere basketball simulator on gaming consoles. While there isn’t necessarily a whole lot new on offer in this latest edition, it is the most refined and balanced of any of the previous games. That said, it does have its shortcomings.
The singular new mode added on to 2K14 is LeBron’s Path to Greatness, a mode that let’s you decide the future of the NBA great.
