Does anybody even rememeber NBA Live anymore? The 2K franchise has litterally blown away all copetitors.
I do wish NBA Live was still being put out yearly if only for the sake of pushing the NBA 2K series farther then they are pushing themseleves. It seems year to year 2k is making icremental changes and refining their game. They add modes or past teams but its always frustrating when they add something only for it to be gone the next year. And honestly, thats the only knock I have on the game. this year the all star weekend is gone and so are the USA team rosters unis and stadium etc. So whats the point of adding European teams if you don't have team USA to destroy them with.
I understand moving away from the jordan thing you can't do that every year but why can't we have the all star weekend mode every year? Same with the USA teams.
Still even with their one step back 2K always takes 3 steps forward. This game is faster, smoother and defense has becom crucial! No more driving wrecklessly through the lane. My player backtop use to be a launching pad for dunks now layups and dunks are going to be altered, blocked or bodies are going to collide. It feels like a new game and looks better. The graphic are similar to last year you can see more deffinition, smoother textures, and the facial movements are getting way better. The controls are supposed to be easier to string moves but it seems they have gotten so complicated that certain moves are executed when you want different ones. Then you lose the ball which can be frustrating. Anybody that says this game is the same as before is not paying attention enough.
