NBA 2K14 is the ninth installment in the 2K series of basketball simulators. This game is centered around LeBron James, the famous player from the Miami Heat club.
The game has a traditional MyCareer mode as well as an arcade mode. It also features a variety of online multiplayer modes.
There are two new modes introduced in NBA 2K14. The story mode, called "LeBron: Path to Greatness," was inspired by Jordan Challenge mode from the NBA 2K11. It follows an imaginary version of LeBron's career, in which the players control LeBron in a sequence of matches. The other mode, Training Camp, is a tutorial mode that allows the players to get used to controls
Changes from previous games
NBA 2K14 didn't change much since the previous parts of the series. Besides the aforementioned new modes, there are a few slight additions. The AI was improved to become less predictable, especially while defending. The controls now include a pass assist option that allows the players with the perfect timing to perform precision passes. The game introduces European league teams, although they do not have a separate mode.
LeBron James has personally selected the playlist for the game. It includes mostly hip-hop music by artists such as Kanye West, Kendrick Lamar, Jay Z, and Eminem, but also a few pop-rock songs by Imagine Dragons, Coldplay, and Phil Collins.
