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.Read more ›
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:

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.
[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.
