I honestly didnt think this game would be good. i HATED 2k10. I played the demo for nba elite and thought it was better than the demo for 2k11 but i figured i would give 2k11 a try since nba elite doesnt come out til march. After 2 weeks of playing 2k11 i was amazed. it doesnt really get old. There is so much to do in this game. the controlls take some getting used to and the online play is great, i havent had it lag at all. the ppl that complain about this game probably either aren't true basketball fans or havent spent enough time with the game. One thing i really like is the defense controlls. I like that i can cut people off from driving to the hole and that makes it easier to win online. Im probably gonna get nba elite when it comes out just to see which i like better, but this game is a definate buy.
The title sums up this game this franchise, and the future of NBA games. Since about 2008 its been considered Total Blasphemy to even consider Buying an NBA live Title. I mean WHy would you? 2k Is Mountains better then NBA Live in every aspect.
Adding MICHAEL JORDAN to the mix just put the Icing on the Cake.
Let me break it down.
Jordan Mode, By far the best Could be Downloadable ccontent ever incorporated in a sports games since the Big Bang.
it pits you smack in the middle of ten Very Difficult Scenarios (if done on hall of fame). I found myself constantly sayin "What???? this game is Cheating!!! (like a 10 year old). But after some understanding of the new mechanics of the game i found that it was just the challenge i wanted. Kudos to 2k For not making this DLC
Graphics, 2k Graphics have always been better than Live Graphics.
Player movement and momentum is alot more realistic.
The Franchise mode had made one of the best improvement s ever with some added Content by the name of PLayer finder and Trade finder. Overall this is the best sports game to ever grace a Console.
