NBA 2K14 is the best looking of the series (pictures)

From player animations to small details such as reflections on the hardwood floor, this game looks great.

Curry directing traffic

The player animations look great as you battle it out on the hardwood. There are no plays to call, but you can see here that Andre Igoudala is running the baseline, and I might be able to get quick pass to him for the shot. The problem is, you never know what your teammates will do.

Closer to realistic

The player faces are much more recognizable than in previous versions of the game. However, I'm not so sure Curry's shoulders are larger than his head in real life (maybe he worked very hard in the off season).

Two Lebron James modes

You can play Heat Dynasty to try to repeat consecutive championships against likely future teams. Fantastic Journey goes a bit deeper, with challenges throughout the season before you go to the championship.

What might happen this year?

When you play the Heat Dynasty mode, you get a fictitious storyline for how the coming season will play out and a chance to win it all again.

You are Lebron James

In the Path to Greatness modes, you play only as Lebron James with no player switching. You can call for the ball and assist other players, but you can only control James.
