I recently purchased NBA 2K11. Let me start off by saying that I haven’t played a basketball game ever since NBA Live 08(Yeah, LONG time), and also this is my very first NBA 2K game.
I am impress at this game. This has been the most realistic looking basketball game that I have EVER played. Graphics on point, the character modeles has impressed me. The gameplay is very good. You actually start off in the 1991 championship series as Micheal Jordan and the bulls while you are going against the L.A Lakers. All the legends are there: Magic Johnson, Scotty Pippen, Grant just to name the few. I was stoked at the game models. But got my behind HANDED TO ME lol. Man, did I get spank in the game. I held my own, though, but I got whoop. I have to get use to the controls and if you are a 2k basketball noobie this the first piece of advice I will tell you….Get use to the controls! All in all, I had fun, and can’t wait to get my revenge…
I’ve started the My Player mode, this was the prime reason why I got the game in the first place. I spent the first 10-15 minutes JUST CREATING THE PLAYER. To me, I give this high marks. I love the amount of detail that you can give to your very own person. I haven’t started the drills or combine, but I am liking the game.
My initial reaction, I think this game is real good. I need to adjust, but I will stick to it. I have to say, I enjoy this game way more then the NBA Live series. More options ingaming. Seems to me more realistic. There are some gameplay frustrations in the game, but I haven’t gone far into this game to point it out. Be on the look out for my full review of this game, where I will do my VERY BEST to give my opinion on every feature in 2k11!
