Rory of Corrupted Cartridge writes "Long has the NBA 2K series ruled the basketball gaming world. Since EA’s Live series (And its NCAA series too for that matter) went under in 2010, 2K studios’ NBA game has gone unchallenged. This hasn’t necessarily been a bad thing. The game was far superior to its EA brethren before that series became extinct, and each incarnation has improved upon an already stellar game. So with the Live series poised to make a comeback, would 2K step up their game even more? In a word… nope."
