NBA 2K11

NBA 2K11 [Review]

Overall Feeling: 

NBA 2K11 is basically the best basketball game to be released in the past 10 years. The game boasts incredible production values, amazing gameplay and one of the best modes ever in the form of the Jordan Challenge mode. Lots of the lingering issues from past NBA 2K games have been cleared up and few issues that are present in the game are minor. With an accurate depiction of the NBA, its players and the sport of basketball, NBA 2K11 is the crowned Champion of basketball video games.

The Pros: 

The gameplay is just stunning, even if it takes a while to get used to. The feeling the game gives from an aural and visual perspective is just unparalleled. NBA fans should be satisfied with the deep Association Mode and the soon to be legendary Michael Jordan mode. The options for online play are good and the stability is terrific. Even when it’s on Easy mode the game still puts up a nice challenge.

The Cons: 

Passing can be a bit hit and miss sometimes. The Dunk Challenge mode left a bit to be desired. Starting out as an upstart in the My Player mode may be a bit too tough for folks. A few small glitches/issues are still present. Ref calls can be a bit odd at times.

Seeing someone travel from both ends on the wood tiles of a NBA court is almost like poetry in motion. While NBA players like LeBron James or past legends like Karl Malone and Michael Jordan weren’t spitting out poetic verses like Robert Frost, they were showing us their true selves with how they played on the court.

NBA 2K11 looks to give gamers the ultimate NBA experience [Preview]

With the recent news of EA delaying NBA Elite 11, which was to be a reboot of the series, basketball gamers may be looking at what possible options are available to them.  Well there are only three options really: 1. Wait for NBA Elite 11 and hope that EA fixes the issues 2. Go out on a limb and buy NBA Jam, which is far from a sim basketball experience or 3. Try out NBA 2K11, a game which just so happens to include this little known player named Michael Jordan.  I think with the void of NBA Elite 11, a lot of gamers are going to go with option 3, and rightfully so.

New NBA 2K11 video has Michael Jordan and Snoop Dogg

NBA 2K11 is shaping up to be the basketball game to beat this year since his airness, Michael Jordan is not only gracing the cover but has an entire game mode revolving around him.  For the past couple years the basketball battle between EA and 2K Sports has been a heated one and this year is probably going to feel like it’s Game 7 of the NBA finals between the Lakers and Celtics, things are just that damn intense.

Details on the Michael Jordan mode in NBA 2K11

NBA legend Michael Jordan will be the cover athlete for NBA 2K11 this year but the involvement of his airness just doesn’t stop there. After all it would be a bit silly to have one of the greatest NBA players ever appear in a game and not properly utilize him.  As it was rumored earlier, NBA 2K11 will feature an entire mode centered around the prolific career of Michael Jordan, minus his baseball stint of course.

The basketball video game battle between EA Sports and 2K Sports has been extremely interesting and in some cases a bit tough to call. Despite both being sim basketball games, EA and 2K have offered different interpretations of the hardwood classic sport and each game has a very loyal fanbase. However this year is going to be a fierce basketball battle with 2K’s acquisition of Michael Jordan and EA’s complete revamp of their NBA games.

I guess the excitement concerning the big NBA deals happening right now (Wade & Bosch to the Miami Heat = sad Chicago fan) has rippled to the world of gaming since this is my second b-ball related story for today.  As it was previously hinted and subsequently announced, Michael Jordan is indeed gracing the cover of 2K Sports’ NBA 2K11.

Even though I’m not a fan of basketball video games, at least of the sim variety, this news concerning NBA 2K11 does have me excited. GameSpot is reporting that 2K is looking into having NBA legend Michael Jordan be the cover athlete for NBA 2K11.
