I think this game is awful. The menu layout is pathetic. It is very disorganized and doesn't make much sense. When you make a choice you often can't go back to the previous screen. Gameplay control isn't very good often not letting you go where you want to go. The graphis could be much better. EA Sports... please come back to basketball.

Immediately into playing this game I knew how many bugs there were going to be and I am not surprised at how many there were. The main menu navigation is confusing and not explained at all, at the title menu you are given 3 options: My character, Quick play, and My Career. At first I thought they got rid of modes like Association or Dunk Contest because of this. I first tried the My Career which the system to create your character is still large and diverse however it throws you directly into the action with your character who will suck going against players like LeBron James in your first game along with a confusing upgrade system. I wanted to change the difficulty and rules for in game but since the menu navigation was confusing I couldn't even find the options section. Yes the graphics received much more detail however I still managed to watch the ball go through my hands on rebounds, players jumping through me to either dunk or get rebounds. It does not tell you any of the controls except for the new features but not how to call for a pick and roll. What did manage to impress me was how in depth they went with the My Career now making you focus on how you play, answering interviews, having a fan base, and signing contracts. However gameplay is annoying to figure out, free throw shooting is impossible, glitches still occur almost the entire game, and the menu navigation is terrible.
