NBA 2k9 Review

IGN Ratings for NBA 2K9 (X360)
Rating Description
out of 10
7.0 Presentation
Why is there no one sitting at the T-Mobile Halftime desk? Off-the-court values are terrible while everything on-court looks like a genuine broadcast. Camera system for online play could be better.
8.5 Graphics
Great looking player models that are improved from last year. Still an odd looking face here and there. Animations are silky smooth.
8.5 Sound
A solid soundtrack highlighted by Cool Kids’ 2K anthem. The commentary is solid but doesn’t go beyond the call of duty.
8.5 Gameplay
Refined gameplay that captures the speed of the NBA game without reverting to being an arcade title. A few annoyances here and there are all that hold this one back from a guaranteed spot in the Hall.
9.0 Lasting Appeal
The online play is great, despite the screwy camera, and The Association 2.0 has all the length and depth anyone could want from their franchise. Blacktop is a clear afterthought but it's still cool.
(out of 10 / not an average)
