First review is in... 9.5 from IGN.

Honestly, the stuff with Michael Jordan is reason enough to pick up NBA 2K11. The fact that 2K Sports did so much more with this game and improved it so greatly over last year's title is stunning. This isn't just the best basketball game ever; it's the best sports game of this generation.

Not bad for a sports game.

I really love this series. For iGN to give that type of review means that this game must be off the charts.

I ordered on Amazon. Guaranteed release date delivery, and they also give you a 10 dollar GC toward another video game purchase in the future.

Can't wait.

This was the whole focus EA had going into the 2011 game for NBA. 2010 didnt sell well, but Mike Wang had the game getting positive reviews and the sim gamers were liking it. Well, due to the game not selling well. They scrapped it and the Developer MIke Wang said i am not with this and called 2K and said, can i get my old job back, these dudes are fucking up. Well, 2K said sure because they liked the dude.

So EA basically said. Since we cant take 2K's basketball fans, we will try to go in a new direction (hired the main boss of the NHL series) and said we can just tap into our Fifa and NHL fans and make the game more casual. Well, the game was really bad and not even ready for that. So the Suits said we have to pull this game, it will get terribly killed by the reviewers and fans. So they delayed it.

I don't like NBA games due to basketball being the least simmable game on the planet but I just might get 2k11. I just sold NCAA football 11 so I might as well try 2k11 out. Can't be a bigger waste of time than NCAA football was.

And they need to remove the heat from online play.

The only recent sports games i've bought are Madden 2010 (epic fail, i played 6 games, regret buying it since, game sucks) and refuse to buy 2011. Last good football game was espn2k5 (ownage) for ps2. Bought MLB 2010 the show, a great buy and a fun baseball game, will buy it every year likely. Haven't played an NBA game since ps 1. I am excited to buy this 2k game esp hearing that EA fucked up...the graphics looked great on elite but we all know that doesn't mean shit

This is the best basketball game ever IMO and one of the best sports games made...period. It deserves to be on the "Mount Rushmore of sports games" IMO.

The amount of depth in this game is staggering...I wasn't huge on all the Jordan stuff but it's actually quite enjoyable and the amount of detail put into all the old school teams, players, etc. is ridiculous and awesome. The classic teams are sick.

Gameplay is spot on...love seeing teams actually have identities, play differently, and play like they do in real life. Also like seeing the difference between players, superstars play like superstars and again they play like their real life counterparts.

So glad I picked this game up and I can see myself playing this for a very long time.

2k needs to work on the transition and facial animations. It kind of takes you out of the experience when the camera zooms in on a player after a made basket or timeout and he's jittering around like he's possessed.

That's probably my one nitpick. Everything else is fantastic. Close games in the 4th quarter are freaking intense like they should be.

Started an Association with the Hawks last night...created myself at the 2 Guard. I don't cheese or make an uber CAP, just like having myself in the game lol. Anyways, shifted Joe Johnson down to the 3 spot and I like my lineup a lot...tons of athleticism and length.

First game is in Memphis and I squeak by 85-84...hit a 3 with my CAP with about 3.5 secs left which won it. It was a cool game because I trailed constantly but it was like Memphis being a young team didn't know how to close it out and I was able to sneak in and grab it. Rudy Gay absolutely obliterated me though...he went for 35. Marc Gasol was a terror on the boards as well.

Love the way my team is shaping up though, Al Horford commands the lane. He was blocking shots, getting rebounds, and forcing misdirections from anyone who came in the lane...he's going to be huge for me if I'm going to have any success.

Thinking about shopping for a PG, don't know how much I trust Bibby.

I love this game, the depth is amazing.

I was slow to come around to 2k11 being a former NBA live guy but the more I get used to the controls from the demo, the more I like. Seems like there's a million moves at my disposal.

The Jordan moments seems really cool also since I loved watching those 90s bulls teams.

Thinking I'm going to pick it up tonight. Can't wait.

Bump. Sorry didn't see this thread. Anyway I started off 16-4 with the Heat now lost the last 4 games by 10+ points each game. Can anyone tell me why this is? Do I need to practice the players more? Rest them during the games? I only play 5 min QTRs.

What teams did you play? all teams play different styles. Also, what settings are you playing on?

Too late I just won 2 of 3. I'm the Heat on the 2nd to easiest level which isn't that fucking easy. With the Heat its about getting in transition in the half court set I like to do pick & rolls with Wade/Bosh. Bosh has a sweet jumper and Wade is great to the basket and can also hit jumpers.

Is there any way to call offensive plays or change defensive schemes in My Player mode?

I think only if your a point guard and you have to get your rating about 70. I may be off on that part though.

I really like this game. I'm in my 7th year of a dynasty with the Raptors. The first year I traded away all of my assets (DeRozan, Ed Davis, etc.) save for Bargnani, and built a team through the draft.

What I don't get are these things:

1) If I fire my coach, they only ones available are coaches with a D or F potential, so there's no point to fire him

2) Even though my starting 5 now has ratings of 99, 97, 94, 92, and 88 with another 85 and an 83 coming off the bench, my team rating is an 89.

Any ideas?

opening ports is huge, you may already have it open and its sometimes a pain to find a game on the ps3, but on the 360, its pretty easy to do.

Think it takes you whole team. So if you got some shitty ass dude thats last on the bench thats going to affect the overall team rating big time. At least i think.

I was in desperate need of a new game, after playing the abortion of a game "Homefront" for two days (didn't even finish the campaign). ...huge disappointment for me as I was looking forward to it.

So, i went outside my comfort zone and bought a Basketball game. I know virtually nothing about baskeball in terms of defense/offense etc. I bought NBA live 2010 for like $18. So far I really enjoy it, but after reading reviews of 2k11, i'm seriously thinking of picking that up instead. looking at the videos online, it's like night and day difference between the two games.

...clearly apparent - even for myself who has always suspected as much - that EA sports 'mails it in' each year with their sports titles. I think I'm piciing up 2k11 tonight after work to give it a go.

Yea I'd say do it. Just FYI though 2k11 doesn't seem like your typical game i'm mean there is some strategy involved.

I've looked at rosters for teams that are 97, and I'm higher at every respective position. There are teams that have a rating in the mid 90s that don't have a single player in the 90s, and have multiple players in the 60s.

I do the same thing in Madden. Trade away all the older players, leaving behind a few young cornerstones and build my own team through the draft.

I just bought this game about 3 or 4 weeks ago. I love it. It is absolutely the best hoops video game ever. I mean yeah, 2K8 was great and I like college better. But this game is even better. The presentation, the many game modes, the tutorials...Fantastic! I even played a pickup game last night online using My Player. That is awesome that you can play a pickup game with real people each playing their own My Player over the internet.

I have noticed that some people I have played that are great at playing My Player I have kicked their butts in the online league. They tend to forget that hoops is a team sport.

i've been playing the "My Player" feature.

Overall, my basketball knowledge is pretty limited, so I'm not sure how well I did distributing my points when setting it up. And, I'm not all that sure what the different positions are - so I went with SG.
I'm rated as an 'all-around' type player, with only a 43 rating.
I think I've played like 42 games so far; only averaging like 6pts a game, but don't do too bad (I don't think...) in defensive rebounds and assists; about 5 each per game.

Shooting is becoming a 'little' easier now that I've been able to bump up my attributes slightly.

The thing that drives me nuts - and I"m not sure if this is a 'user' thing or 'game thing' - is at times my team will transition to offesne and set up; and the PG will stand there for nearly the entire shot clock until about 3 seconds, then either shoot a low percentage shot or dish it. Meanwhile, my entire team stands there...no one running or moving. I'm the only one running around, trying to set screens etc. I've tried even standing in my own spot in the offense, thinking maybe the computer needs to recognize you there in order to select a play etc; but no dice. Doesn't happen all the time; but probably at least 60% or more. very frustrating.

I may even consider creating a new player now that I know a little more as to what's important from an attribute standpoint based on how I play. my guy sucks at dribbling, ball security, layups, shooting in traffic.............basically everythign lol.

But overall, awesome game. I'm not even a 'basketball guy' at all, but I've been playing the sh*t out of this. very fun.

On offense are you going to the blue spot, your offense usually won't run until you go to your spot so they set the play.

yeah, I finally figured that out after while, but it still happens quite a lot; like an offensive play doesn't get called or whatever. when a play does get called I can see the lines/play I'm supposed to make, but it seems a lot of times I stand in the spot, and the entire team stands in once place.

I'm sure part of the problem is my lack of basketball know-how etc. too.

I also need to figure out how to call plays when I get subbed to PG; or determine if the computer automatically calls one for me etc.

I thought it seemed when you built your teams trust...answering professional and loyalty in the interviews basically.

I won the ship with the thunder in year 1, then demanded a trade to the Heat in year 2 :p


Been playing online I like to play as the Heat, Bulls, Warrior, and Thunder...and that's about it

Ok,
I played this game a TON on Saturday; didn’t have much going on, the wife was out shopping etc, so I played it for a few hours.

I got MUCH better. I’m not sure if it’s because I was able to get a few more skill points or what. I’m still only at an overall level 44, so I don’t know if skill points really helped much etc. But for some reason, my team went off. Up to that point, we were like 12-38 or something really bad like that. then we rattled off a 7 game streak; and during that time I was named player of the game.

That REALLY helped because I received a ton of skill points (more than the typically 100 points I had been getting each game etc). Then over the course of the next couple hours, I got player of the game again like 4 more times.

Not sure what I was doing differently; maybe letting the offense run (instead of me running around like a fool); I really concentrated on defense and rebounding.

I can’t tell you how good it feels to actually shoot the ball and have it go in the hoop. Lol. Before I was lucking to drain about 10% of my shots. IN the last couple games I was shooting about 65%; had about 12-18pts per game (compared to like 4); about 6 rebounds PG.

This game is awesome/addicting (and this coming from a non-basketball guy)

to get your ranking up, get your offensive and defensive awareness up, that alone will get u to 65 overall.

I'm a 6-3 athletic PG about 3/4 done with rookie year.

Concentrating on jump shooting and defense.

Most of my points are in medium, 3 point, shoot off dribble, consistency, defensive awareness and on ball defense.

It's funny because I have no points in layup right now and last game I missed about four point blank layups, but hit 5 three pointers.
