There’s nothing like a good old-fashioned NBA rivalry.
Whether it’s Lakers-Celtics or Bulls-Pistons, serious competition usually brings out the best in everyone.
All of the games in the franchise have been developed by Visual Concepts.
Its primary competitor in the marketplace is the NBA Live series from EA Sports.
Even though the competition this season is better than ever, NBA 2K9 puts the franchise back on top of the hoops heap.
NBA 2K9 features a heavily licensed soundtrack, leaning on hip-hop and pop to fill out the roster.
Controls are also improved, offering a generous amount of advanced mechanics for hardcore hoopsters but remaining simple enough for newcomers to get comfortable right away.
