Visual Concepts has suffered some growing pains trying to break into the current generation of gaming. However, them days are in the past - NBA 2k9 is here and it is the big man of the court once again.
NBA 2k8 last year tried to reinvent the series by building a brand new defence system which almost killed the game, causing the series to be knocked off it's throne. This year however they have stepped up in a return to form, bringing back some old but polishing up the new to bring an all round better experience on the court. It might look like 2K8, and that is because for the most part it actually is."
