    With no other games I really fancy buying coming out until the end of June I am thnking about buying NBA 2K7 as I can get it for £17.99 and seems a good price for a newly released game.

    I am not the biggest fan of basketball and the last basketball game I owned was NBA Jam for the Super Nintendo. Has anyone played the game or own last years version of the game and would you recommend it to someone who may not be the biggest fan of basketball?

    There is already a thread on this in the bargain games forum. It's one I started here a few days ago mentioning the £17.99 price and was moved there. To answer your question if you're after a basketball game then NBA 2K7 is as good as it gets at the moment and is a pretty good game. It's much better then Sony's NBA 07 and EA's NBA Live series which EA has not released this time round on the PS3. FYI, it's usually a good idea to try a search first just incase a thread has already been started on the subject.

    Game looks great, it plays really well too, but not being a basketball fanatic I'm not fully aware of all the rules, should remember not to foul when they shoot as they usually get the 2 points + 2 free throws!!!

    For £18 I am bloody happy, pisses all over NHL2K7 too!

    It is a bit end to end and you get to understand the opposition will score almost every time though! Even on easy mode! And steals aren't easy, so atleast it's realistic! Quite easy to score points, not so easy on ridiculous 3 pointers or even regular 3 pointers, so it's a good challenge. I would recommend it, i'm enjoying it! Bit of a strange set up to the game though! The layout and menu's are bloody confusing!

    Mine *should* be here on Monday... Would have been here by now but thanks to a cock up I used my student account card instead of the one with money in it :p

    Sadly I won't be able to go online much (if at all), much like the other games... 'kin Tiscali... :(

    i got the us version when i got my ps3, only played online a few times but it was awful..everyone i played against played the same way, gave the ball to their "star" eg, kobe,lebron etc. did a few iso's and went for the dunk, no plays or picks,nothin..it was so bad i havent tried online since the first week i got the game, just concentratin on my franchise :thumbsup:

    Hopefully your online experiences will be better than mine!

    I don't have much of a clue about basketball really, don't know about plays, franchises and all that american crap...but this game is pretty fun, despite being beaten about 79-39 by the CPU in my first game (5 min quarters). The CPU doesn't seem to miss much!! I'm sure i'll get better.

    One comment about 2K7 games (played NHL 2K7 too). The menu system's are atrocious to navigate (use the right analogue stick to go back in menus???) and also seem to use last generation graphics too much.

    I'd definitely give it a review score of at least 75% from my early play. Much better than NHL 2K7.

    Yea the presentation in general isn't great, dont know why as it is really good in MLB 2k7
    In regards to NHL, i play NBA a lot more but thats cos im a bigger basketball fan than i am ice hockey, but as the games go i think NHL 2K7 is a better ice hockey game than NBA 2K7 is a basketball game...if you get me? :confused:

    You have it the wrong way round. The other basketball game on the PS3 is NBA 07 which is Sony's inhouse first party game. That one is pretty average and the worst of all the basketball series. Sony in general have never done a good job on their own sports games on the PS1, PS2 and now on the PS3. The only other option would be EA's NBA Live 07 which isn't available on the PS3 this year as EA decided to wait till the next version to release it. Having said that the NBA 2K series is regarded as being better then EA's these days. It's not perfect but as good a game as you can get.

    i've played both and in my opinion 2K7 is far better, tactically it is a lot deeper and has better/deeper game modes..but 07 does have a few nice touches, NBA Replay is fun for a while, and the shot meter is a nice touch. Also using the TNT broadcast presentation adds some realism, but sadly the gameplay doesn't.

    As someone who plays, follows, watches and loves basketball...its fifa vs pro evo all over again..07 is the usual EA, graphical workout being a touch more polished and pretty in places but as for gameplay and realistic shot/control and of course fun, 2k7 wins everytime...
    no comparison, 2k7 everytime for me mate...:thumbsup:

    Ordered mine yesterday, can't wait to see what it is like. I love NHL 2K7 so if it to that standard i will be happy.

    Usually the 2K games allow you to set up online leagues, we should start an AV Forums league, who would be interested?

    Hopefully my copy will arrive today, if it does I will look in to setting up a league. Although it might be best for us all to practice a bit before the first fixtures as most of us have only recently got the game. I am expecting to be well and truely ***** at it to begin with.
