Excerpt: I'm not what you would call a fan of American sports. There's just something that doesn't gel inside my brain when I try to watch NFL, NBA or MLB, yet when I play NBA 2K11 the quality of the game still manages to shine through. The last NBA game I truly enjoyed was NBA Jam back on the Mega Drive, so the fact that I'd happily play 2K's latest effort in my spare time should tell you all need to know. Just don't expect a game with big heads and crazy leaping dunks.
Conclusion: Despite this, NBA 2K11 is undeniably the best game in the series yet, pushing forward just enough without leaving behind the fans who fell in love with this version of NBA in the first place. As Sports games go, NBA 2K11 is up there with the greats, a balancing act of excellently conceived controls and the undeniable style of the Basketball we see on TV. If you pick up one Sports title for this Christmas season, you really can’t go wrong with NBA 2K11 .
Conclusion: Ultimately, NBA 2K11 brings a lot of freshness to the formula. The inclusion of Air Jordan, the improved dribbling and shot stick use, the ramped-up AI, and the TNT presentation means that there isn’t much to dislike about NBA 2K11. 2K Games has probably angered a lot of sports game developers by ignoring the “update roster and add a new feature” formula that most developers utilize.
Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is It is getting harder and harder for sports video games in this age and time. Any innovation you come up with can be copied in a year or less. Any special features you offer this year can be a hit in another series a few months later. Thinking outside the box though is what this business is all about, and NBA 2K11 just took that box and shipped it away.
Excerpt: Michael Jordan is still the most well known professional basketball player in the world, despite being out of the game for over 7 years. His amazing talent brought new life into the NBA and also to American dominance in Olympic basketball in the early Nineties. It�s no surprise that 2K Sports would want to feature him in their newest version of the 2K franchise.
