Greatness awaits you on the NBA 2K14 court. Find out why in this slamming PS4 sports game.
Get ready for a world of pure style - NBA 2K14 bounces the slick flair of basketball into your home. With glossy TV style presentation, this sports title manages to do something impossible in real life: give you the best courtside seats in the house, while delivering a feast of analysis, stats and head-bouncing music.
Before you get into the face of the fast paced sport, a great mixture of hit tracks from the likes of Kanye West, The Black Keys and Gorillaz get you into the mood. Shuffle the playlist to cherry pick your favourites and then have a look around the court. If you want to get some up to date results and detailed statistics from the real world of basketball, NBA Today is your first port of call.
If you prefer to enjoy the glitz and glamour, create your own footwear in the Show Creator before seeing video game basketball come to life in any of the main playable modes. Whether you choose the trading card based fun of MyTEAM or just want to jump into a quick exhibition game, the athletic swagger of real life basketball players is captured perfectly. Sweat glistens and impressively drawn faces grin with joy and mug in agony as you're dunked into an incredible atmosphere.
NBA 2K14 on PlayStation 4 lets you own the courts, turning you into a basketball superstar in no time. It's a good idea to make your first stop the tutorial modes to teach you how to hit the hardwood. Training Camp helps you learn the basics of shooting, passing, defence and gliding around the court like the game's cover star LeBron James.
Ready to step into bigger shoes? MyCAREER lets you create your own player and build him up from a rookie to a pro. This is your chance to make your mark on the NBA, so use fast and physical play to impress. Be aware of teammates calling for the ball, and don't be afraid to rush the opposition's net to draw fouls. The DUALSHOCK 4 vibrates if you're about to lose possession, so hold on tight and stay alert. Complete Dynamic Goals during matches to impress your general manager, and choose your answers careful from the multiple choice question sessions during press conferences and personal conversations with coaches, teammates and rivals.
If you want a taste of what it's like to manage from the sidelines, MYGM mode lets you control every aspect of the franchise from player personnel to finances, all under the watchful eye of the team's owner. Pick a strategy best suited to your nature and get winning.
No matter which mode you choose, NBA 2K14 captures all the pressure and prestige of the hard hitting, slam dunking sport.
Live from your living room
There's nothing like slick teamwork - and showboating - between friends to liven up a game, and NBA 2K14 ramps up the stakes with its big, in-your-face multiplayer gameplay. Up to four local players can team up (or take each other on) for fast and exciting matches. Keep an eye on the flashing on-court icons to maximise your positioning and get involved with a little bit of on-microphone trash talk to get inside your mate's head.
Commentators also add spice to the game, making sure everybody knows just how good - or terrible - a particular move was. Pay special attention to their analysis as these pundits can sometimes give you a clue as to where you're going wrong and how to correct it.
For the big game hoopsters, The Park mode is the place to be. Up to 100 online gamers can hangout and join matches for up to 10 players at a time, each using their custom made superstar from the MyCAREER mode. Get bouncing - the drama of the NBA is in your hands.
