    4.0 out of 5 stars Still lacking October 19, 2010
    Platform for Display:PC
    Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
    Alright, first of all to put this into perspective: I'm an old-school gamer. I play NBA simulations on the PC since NBA Live 1996 and even before that the arcade NBA Jam on some Sega console. I played nearly all NBA Lives from 1996 to 2008 and after that NBA 2k9, 2k10 and now 2k11. I played NBA 2k11 for about a week now. So I hope my review is able to help old-school gamers like myself, who are in doubt about wether or not this game is worth buying.

    Also I have to say I didn't try the Jordan mode yet, because I don't really care about it and I didn't try the online mode, because I didn't get it to work yet.

    The main emphasize in this review is the AI, the overall difficulty, the realism, and how much and fun this game is -- playing with and against the CPU. I must say I'm usually very critical, so maybe I'm too harsh on some points, although I really don't think so and try to be as fair as I can be.

    I play 10 minute quarters, with the gameplay setting being set to "simulation" and the difficulty being set to All-Star (second highest). After a couple of games I slightly tweaked the gameplay settings so that the CPU wouldn't throw so many ridiculous alley-hoops, and miss (relatively) too many dunks. In the standard "simulation" settings I had the CPU throw 3 or 4 alley-hoops per game, and none of them were fair or plausible, while at the same time missing about 1 dunk per game, which also mostly wasn't plausible. Also of course I tuned the graphics according to my system (medium to high) and disabled commentary because to me it gets annoying after about two games.

    Another thing I tried to tweak is the lane interception thingy. Because the CPU is intercepting way to many passes in this version.

    5.0 out of 5 stars A Notable step up from last year! October 16, 2010
    Platform for Display:PC
    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
    I'm very happy to give this game a full 5 star rating as I look forward to playing this game! Graphically it is roughly the same, with some slight improvements (it might just be me, but the court looks cleaner than last year!) The presentation is excellent, I really like the television broadcast approach 2k takes on their NBA games, and they revamped the interface for a new look and it's impressive! Notably, game play is a huge step up in the right direction, the AI seems smarter and it makes for a good challenge playing this game against the computer. To me, the Michael Jordan thing is neat, but a bit of a gimmick, because I can't see myself playing it over just that of a typical season, but to each their own.

    I read IGN's PC review, and they mark it down because of lag. I completely disagree. I built my computer about 5 years ago and haven't upgraded since and it runs smoothly on high resolution, max detail and x2 anti aliasing. Only on rare occasions have I ever run into minor lag, but its typically very smooth:


    Intel duo core 2.4
    4gb ram
    nvidea 9600gt

    Its too bad they don't make NHL for PC, but I'll gladly take this game, will easily get me through the NBA season.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Best Sports game of the century but ......... October 12, 2010
    Platform for Display:PC
    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
    There is no sports game better than this game. I am still a noob an so can only defeat the pro computer. They can beat me 3% of the time. It is so real. Howevr the online feature on PC is total garbage just like 2K10 on PC. I owned both 2K10 and now 2K11 and i will tell u that the online feature is not currently working for everybody, and for those it works for, they happen to play it on low quality (2K servers forces online video setting to low quality) with heavy lag. I have contacted their support but they keep saying the fault is on my own side however many users have been experiencing this same issue. I have opened all the ports both at my router and windows fire wall but the problem persist. Many other people are having this problem. Great game but a no no for anyone trying to play online. I will not buy this game on PC again. I might have to consider console next time.

    5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Game to Play January 13, 2013
    By Robert
    Platform for Display:PC|Verified Purchase
    What I love about this game is, I get to play with the legend Michael Jordan and his Bulls teams. The Jordan Challenge looks interesting. I love playing with the other legendary teams as well. The graphics are so good along with the game play of the game. I do like the broadcasting duo of Kevin Harlan and Clark Kellogg with Doris Burke as the sideline reporter. I recommend this game for any Basketball fans.

    I have always been an nbalive guy and was weary in buying this game. I bought it when it was on special for 10 bucks so I went with it, and let me say I was surprised. It was very fun to play, and graphics were very good.

    5.0 out of 5 stars 2K Sports has outdone themselves.... June 18, 2011
    Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
    To start off with, 2K Sports has widely impressed me in two sports now. NFL 2K5 was the greatest experience of all time for me, and this game really got me into basketball.

    [MUSIC] : This game has an exceptional soundtrack which had me jamming along to lyrics I couldn't really tell. Enough said.

    [GAMEPLAY] The game is very realistic, to say the least. There are plenty of game modes - My Player, MJ:Creating A Legend, The Association (franchise), Season, Playoffs, and two or three I can't remember. The learning curve is not very steep but can be a bit of a pain to master. You definitely won't get bored with this game. I played it for 3 or 4 hours without realizing the time.

    [GRAPHICS] The quality isn't bad for the PC - it's actually pretty good and reflects the likenesses of the players, including their facial expressions and details. The performance is extremely fluid, provided you do a benchmark before anything else - that is essential before online play.

    [REPLAY VALUE] I have to say that this is one of those games that you never stop playing. By the time you finally get tired of every facet of the game, I daresay 2K Sports will have made another masterpiece.
