This is my initial reaction to the game after about 5 days and 50 games.
The Good: Best graphics ever for a basketball game. You can see the players sweating and they look like themselves more than ever. Most realistic basketball gameplay i've yet to play. Improved post move control. My player mode adds another way to learn how to play and adds another dimension to the game.
The Bad: PS3 online has been unbelievably unstable. No more online lobbies. You can't pick who your going to play against online. Alley-oops are too easy to execute and are a problem. New iso-motion control which made chaining moves together less prevalent
The UGLY: Lead passing is impossible to stop. There is a slight delay for online games so makes timing the release of free-throws and jump shots unreasonably difficult. There is no way to customize and save online settings so you must reset it for every match.
THIS GAME IS THE DOPEST GAME EVER I DONT EVAN PLAY B-BALL WELL I DO BUT IT AINT MY BEST SPORT I PLAY FOOTBALL IM DOPE AT THAT BUT YEAH I SWEAR THE WAy U CAN CREAT A PLAYER AND BRING HIM FROM TRYOUTS TO THE NBA DRAFT IS DOPE I LOVE THE WAY THAT EVERY THING IS MORE REALISTIC AND KOBE IS ON THE FRONT COVER WHEN I WAS PLAYING IT GOT BORING BUT WHEN YOU GET THE HANG OF IT ITS UNBELIEVABLE LIKE WOWWWWW IDK IF THERES ANY WAY TO TELL YOU THIS BUT IF YOUR INTO SPORTS YOU NEED TO GET NBA 2K10 BECOUSE LARONIS13 SAID SO LOL PLUSE YOU CANT FORGET THAT IT HAS KOBE BRYANT ON THE COVER.

I really like how they had updated the graphics as they use to be good like now the fans look real while playing the game not oonly when the pre game is happening. The controls are so smooth now like dribbling and crossovers are great when they was so hard to really use, when you uase to always charge somebody defending you. The AI is better than before they are now tough to play aganist so the game can be more changelling as well as fun at the same time. IT has also a great new feature when you can make an star in the nba now as a rookie that i love way better than that 24/7 they had awhile ago this feature is actually really fun to be able to do that. I have been somebody who has been waiting for somebody to do this cause i want that feature foreal not just create a player and act like that doe to make him a star but now he actualy will be one. This game is the best i played so far that i have gotten out of all the nba games i have played but this game is for everybody that loves basketball it really is.
