I am sorry, but after Madden and NHL, I can't say this is a good sports game experience. In a time when FP Shooters, Action Games, and even RPGs are blowing our minds, how can EA and 2K try to sell us these in 2009 ?! The game play doesn't feal any thing like playing a real game of basketball. This isn't a bad child where progress is promising, these are multi-million dollar franchises.
The online interface on 2K10 is confusing, I still havn't figured out a way to have a 5 on 5 game.
The blocking mechanics still don't make sence. I watched a lot of basket ball last year, players that are good at blocking shots don't have to be facing perfectly at the opposing player. Dwight Howard (EA's Cover Athlete !) blocked shots in the playoffs while not turning his body at all.
Most bothersome to me is that in a day and age when we have shooters with alot of stuff going on in the background and becoming more and more realistic in graphics, it shouldn't be a problem for 10 people to play a basketball game ! We are talking about 10, not 32 or 64, but only 10 ! I have cable internet and there is still isues with the game speed. If this is about people with poor conections, then the game should be able to tell how fast your connection is, and if it doesn't cut it, it shouldn't allow you to connect to the server !
