but from what I've seen you go into this mode in the future. So the first game of the Path to Greatness mode takes place on January 24 next year, where you take on the San Antonio Spurs....I was hoping you some legendary matches after James could play, just as you did with Michael Jordan in NBA 2K11, but it seems that you really just go into the future in this mode.


I are disappoint

Update - It looks like you play the next 7 seasons of LeBron's career....

MyCAREER
It's just a shame that the decoration of the mode as well as remaining the same. The discussions with the General Managers of the different teams are the same, the press conferences are something recognizable and also the voice of your characters is the same as last year. I doubt whether there actually new things between the play to find.

MyTEAM
We have very briefly toyed with the mode and as it would seem, has mode no innovations.

Association
And if that were not enough, you also have the ability to start in the Association mode as coach of your team a career. In addition, you decide which players you Trädet, Free Agents which you earn and what your players every game is about to begin.

wait, whut?

There's no competition. Add a few tweaks here and there, throw in Crew Mode, put LeBron on the cover and get the hype going. It's been a working model, why stop now?

This is why I don't care at all about the current gen game. My focus is on Next Gen, and I might even consider switching to Live if 2K puts out a watered down game.

It's certainly sounding like Creating a Legend starring LeBron, just with a bit of extra flavour in the form of set goals and milestones.

MyCAREER is still there and it sounds like it'll have all the same bells and whistles, just no new wrinkles. If they fix some of the bugs, the experience should be just as good if not slightly better than last year. Just a shame we can't import last year's MyPLAYERs.

Things I noticed so far:
If 2k13 courts are not compatible atleast we have images in the freethrow circle area
Jerseys with different name and number placement and without the nba chip in upper left or right part of jersey
One of the articles mentioned creating your own ball

It was from a Google Translation
Here you can make your own basketball (which you can also play in the Crew mode) and you will start your NBA career.

I'm sure it meant basketball player, baller, something of that nature.

That's true... sounds about right. Nothing else released suggests that you can create your own ball

Well since what little gameplay/graphics I'm seeing aren't such a big improvement over last year, and since MyPlayer is the game mode I play the most, and they are not releasing anything substantially new to that game mode.... I have less and less reasons to buy this year game....and why would I?
Unless they fixed some of the major bugs the mode had in 2k13 i will simply patch my 2k13 with the new rosters and continue using it.

I guess that's OK, a decent bonus feature to spotlight the game's cover player, but as we've said it's basically Creating a Legend with a couple of extra elements.

I'm sure it will be a solid enough mode, but at the end of the day it's basically Creating a Legend with a new coat of paint. I imagine it's a lot more appealing for fans of LeBron James but for me, it's too similar to an existing mode to be all that exciting and without any historical content, it feels like it could've been so much more.

but, but, but, not 1, not 2, not 3, not 4, not 5, not 6, not 7

then again, if the mode were limited to 5 years then that would make more sense.

Well, looks like I'm not getting NBA 2K14 this year. I wonder how long they are going to drag PC users onto the current gen game.

Probably a couple of years while they phase out the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions.

Clearly, Lebron is the best player in the world right now, but that path to greatness mode, I don't think, everyone will appreciate it even he's the best out there. For me, I would rather play my career and made my own "path to greatness" and at least that was not even limited to 7 years, unless, that "contract extension signing" bug isn't fix yet.

I'm sure they had to sell him the mode as part of getting him to be on the cover.

No way LeBron would let that happen. It's not a "what if" mode. I'm sure it's basically MyLebron mode with added content as you try to achieve goals aka whore stats.

What if the PTGs Mode takes you back to his high school days in Akron, Ohio? Young LeBron would have more hair, a lower sitting head band and stickers on his tattoos. His game would be different, but the competition would be well...at his mercy more than the NBA is today.


Considering that the mode has already been confirmed as beginning in the present day with no historical content, I'm not sure why he's speculating on that possibility. It would've been cool, but from all accounts it's not happening.

It seems pretty simple, if you feel is has not much to offer other than a lick of paint and a few bug fixes .. simply find physical outlets selling it on offer/wait for bargain buckets and knock off deals. Simply wait until its at a price that justifies it to you than full asking price.

I probably will purchase, but I wont be paying full price for it, just a waiting game.
