2K HAS TAKEN THE FUN OUT OF THE GAME. TO UNREAL
THERE IS NO FUN IN PLAYING & LOOSING. THE HALL OF FAME LEVEL IS UNREAL. I BUY THE GAME TO HAVE FUN & NOT TO GET FRUSTRATED. 2K NEEDS TO GET BACK DOWN TO EARTH. THE CPU IS WAY TO GOOD TO BEAT. NO FUN THIS TIME. MY HOPE IS THAT NBA 2K12 WILL BE MORE LIKE BEFORE.
BEST GAME EVER? 10 OUT OF 10!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Gameinformer 8.75? Have they played this game? I mean how much better can you get really? What are they looking for? Blows away any basketball ever made period! My wife thought I was watching a real basketball game! lol. I guess she didn't see the PS3 controller in my hand? Well if your looking for a basketball game, look no further! Here it is! It has it all! MICHAEL JORDAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Graphics, gameplay, fun, realistic, controls, rosters. I guess the only thing they can build on is the rosters. Add more teams! I wish madden would add old teams like they did in the past. Anyway don't waste anymore time and just BUY this game! Trust, you won't be disappointed! 10 out of 10!!!!!!!!!!!!!
2K11 is going to be this years winner hands down. I am sorry to say Elite fans, if you're expecting a grand experience because of a name change, you will be sorely disappointed. Live/Elite is a dead horse that needs to be buried. The controls are choppy, the button mix is whack, and dual analog proves to be much more aggravation and work than improving the experience with full user control. While 2K11 did not have a very active demo, you still get the sense that the game will be packed with loads of goodies in the COMPLETED version of the game. 2K not only adds Jordan, but allows you to relive some of his greatest moments. Add to this an actual All-Star weekend, Streetball, Dunk Contest, Association mode, created player full experience including drafts, player tendencies, skills, signature moves, better player models (this year anyway), better dunks, ball handling moves, shot stick improvements and you have yourself another winner. "Elite" seems very "common" by comparison. I can't wait to play 2K11 on Oct 5th. Get your copy asap!!!!
2k is King
Now I know there are a lot of haters out there who just can not believe that 2K is a much better basketball Game than NBA JAM, I mean Elite (" OHHHH MY BOOMSHAKALAKA! LEBRON FROM THE 3 point line ...TOMAHAWK SLAM!") lol. Of course 2k is not going to show everything in the current demo unlike Elite. A demo is meant to be an earlier build of the game, so yes it will look unpolished but when the actual game come out its so much better. 2k10 was like that on last years demo and people whined. When the game came out it slaughtered live10 point blank. The only aspect of NBA live that has been good is its streetball dribbling mechanics making dribbling more fun and fantasy filled compared to 2k. But in the nba players dont hot dog like that and dribble more on the lines on what 2k presents in their games(realistic dribbling with some difficulty). 2K has better animations, better game play modes, and each player pretty much have complete signature move sets that make playing with each individual feel authentic.Yes Graphics are nice but its the gameplay that pulls me in and 2k has just taken another step in improving that.
Best Basketball Game Made...If you enjoy realism.
If Realism is something you want in a sports Game...This is as real as it gets. Sure player control is annoying at times especially when you barely touch your joystick & he moves 30 feet, plus Defenders can become a little overbearing with there "Impossible to pass by" Defense. But I play basketball so i know that it takes Strategy,Fundamentals,Defense,Ball Movement & off ball activity to win Games & those factors in real life actually apply in this years NBA 2k11. In 2k10 you could blow by anybody with a LeBron James or a Kobe Bryant & score 100 points in the paint if you wanted to. In this Game it makes it feel more realistic by making it difficult to drive the lane therefore limiting you to jumpshots at times. That's where this Game makes you work for your buckets whether by dishing it to an open jump shooter that came off an off ball screen or fading away off the post up or just using post moves period. This Game makes you call plays,makes you use off ball screens,pick & rolls etc.. So with that combined with Great graphics,Variety of Games Mode including Jordan Challenge & Become a Legend plus the Amazing & Upgraded presentation & commentary makes this Game the best & most realistic sports Game.
Really Frustrating at times
If you're going to get this game I hope you're ready to tear out your hair. When you play, the CPU on your team will do absolutely nothing.They don't play defense at all. And when you try to play defense, the computer will literally go right through you like you're a ghost, or when you attempt to block their shot your hand goes right through the ball and they swish it. And the foul system is ridiculous, it's random at times. Sometimes when you drive to the basket you will get a fouled called, other times you do the exact same thing and no call, even if you get bumped. Yet, when the computer does the exact same thing, they get it EVERY time. And the My Player, you're wide open and you ask for the ball but instead the player that is being doubled teamed, takes the shot and you lose a grade for asking for the ball too much. The only good thing about this game and fair thing, is the Jordan Challenge, because well, he's the greatest. But I honestly would not recommend to someone that gets angry fast like myself.
NBA 2K11 Will be great
I have played the demo, but I have also done my research. While I was impressed with the gameplay, I was not blown away, mostly because of the lack of the new features. Having said that, I have very high expectations for this game with all of the new features they're putting out, such as: Micheal Jordan - New My Player/My Career mode - New commentary/presentation - New controls - Revamped Association mode, to name a few. I have preordered this game, and I recommend you do the same, this is looking to be one of the top 10 games of the year.
This is way better than the last couple of 2ks. The retro teams are a huge plus. I LOVE USING JORDAN! I hope they have some add-ons and add some more teams, like the suns, rockets, magic, spurs, and pacers. Thats right I said pacers, It's miller time! The game modes are pretty cool too. Havent tried online because I dont feel like playing against the heat and lakers over and over. The graphics seem better and same with the gameplay. The annoucners are good, which is a first for me. Seems like they went all out. I think ea delayed thier game because they knew 2k have out did them. BIG TIME! This is a must buy.
Lets be real
We all know that nba2k11 will be the better game...it has been since the next gen systems came out. 2k never gives you much in the demo so for all you idiots who believe thats the final product the u should never play a game again. the gameplay for nba elite(live) will never be better than 2k neither will the graphics. Everyone will see what sells more..Go 2K!! I used to be a major live player but then i opened my eyes
A MUST HAVE GAME!!!
This game is the best game ever its a must have game for any true basketball gamer. They have the greatest game modes on here. Im new to it on ps3 and it was a big step from ps2. They have the best game modes on here. As of My Player which I play everyday and also the Association is great too. The graphics are amazing. NBA Elite has nothing on 2k. So once again GET THIS GAME.
