Almost a year ago to the day I summed up NBA 2K13 by saying, "Sub-par controls and uneven presentation keep 2K's NBA series from finding the net for another year."
This year, 2K Games comes closer to delivering a quality mobile basketball game, even if it fails to address many of the issues that worked against its predecessors.
The result, while not quite perfect, is an enjoyable pocket-sized diversion that looks and plays like a basketball game should.
The 'ol finger roll
The virtual joystick controls in NBA 2K14 are still glitchy. The joystick overcompensates for small movements, and buttons for 'pass' and 'shoot' are unreliable at best.
There's still plenty of room for improvement with patches and bug fixes, but NBA 2K14 shows signs of improvement
