The definitive annual basketball simulation returns for another season with more than 3,000 new animations, updated controls, the debut of Euroleague basketball, a soundtrack hand-picked by LeBron James, and the resurrection of the Crews mode in NBA 2K14. Updated Pro Stick controls offer gamers more command over their dribbling, defense, and shot type, with players now executing no-look passes and circus shots, and defenders blocking dunks and diving on the floor for loose balls, while the My Player career mode returns with improved teammate AI and new rewards for playing stout defense.
NBA 2K14 makes use of Dynamic Living Rosters, which adjusts rosters to reflect real-world injuries, and updates ratings based on the tendencies and performance of real players. The Signature Skills player modification feature returns, with six new options that let gamers turn their My Player character into a One Man Fastbreak, Flashy Passer, Pick & Roll Maestro, Screen Outlet, Pick Dodger, or Tenacious Rebounder. In addition to consulting on the soundtrack, James gets the dedicated Path to Greatness mode, which lets gamers live out the past, present, and future career of the superstar.
Fans of European basketball can now take control of 14 different Euroleague teams, complete with real rosters, logos, and stadiums, while fans of classic NBA action can once again take control of legends like Hakeem Olajuwon, Michael Jordan, and Magic Johnson. Local and online multiplayer action remains key to the NBA 2K14 experience, with the return of the Crews mode once again letting gamers join friends and act as an individual player during five-on-five action.
