NBA 2K10 was so awesome on X360 and so-so on PS3 in terms of gameplay. NBA LIVE 10 on PS3 was great visually but please subtract the glitches and screen freezes. NBA 2K11 is NBA Live 10 visually with no glitches and no screen freezes. The players play to their ability and never play out of their game. Lebron is pretty much unstoppable unless you play zone and great team defense. Kobe is a jump shooter. Jordan is amazing. Defense is a learning as you go set up. No crazy cross court passing allowed at all.
The game is amazing once you slow down and actually just pay attention to the game as a whole. I mean rebounding, ball control, isolation, and post up zones and fatigue of the players. Pay attention to 3 seconds in the paint because they will call it every time. Honestly this game feels real and you will not run around and just pass everybody and dunk anymore. No more of seeing your friends run down the court and jack up a 3 from 30 feet, or the friends running right by you and dunking on the whole team every time. 2K Sports thank you for finally getting right. This is basketball. The reason why it is not a 10 is because they still have the same conversations of the announcers calling the game. What about Charles Barkley and Kenny the Jet Smith. Same old game calling; really "pound cake dunk".
This is basketball not fast breaks and isolations on every play. NBA 2K11 where Amazing happens.
