First of all, let me sum this article up, this game is worth $19.99 IF you're not buying xbox 360 anytime soon. For those who have played last year's 2K6, yes, 2K7 has the same great graphics! But gameplay has improved mostly defensively. example, Mike Dunleavy, like in real life, is NOT driving to the basket dunking on three defenders. Like in real life, as long as you have a decent shot blocker down low, no one can dunk at will with exceptions like King James, Air Canada, T-Mac and Kobe of course. Defense has improved alot. You can not drive to the hole with your poing guard every play. There is also improvement with crowd noise and momentum swing just like the real NBA. At first I didn't want to get this game because I thought it would just be a roster update, but gameplay has improved for the best. This basketball game is the BEST since NBA Live 2001 on PS1! I'm glad 2K sports can at least beat EA with this since they took the best football game ever away!
