Summary: The motions & movement of people's bodies in this game in general is amazing, particularly on the defensive end of the game. Defenders are keenly aware of the man they're guarding, relative to where the ball is. So he'll kinda put his arm out, to keep contact and feel his man, as he tries to also watch the ball on the other side of the court.
Summary: this is a really fun game to play on the xbox 360. i love to play basketball and this game is fun to me. this is a great basketball game. the graphics are great and it also captures the personality of the players.
Summary: Quite an enjoyable game to pick up and play. Do note the server for this game has been taken down by 2k so you can no longer play on-line. I recommend you to go for 2k10 or 2k11 if the price is around the same.
Summary: i used to have this game and played it online all the time. i have 2k11 now and play that now mainly because its easier to find matchups online. 2k9 was so much fun. the gameplay seemed faster and smoother without as much animation in player movement. that was much more noticable on offense. the main difference i see i how you play on offense. in 2k11 its tougher to score, you have to settle for a lot more mid range jump shots. in 2k9 it was a dunk contest.
Summary: This game is so much fun. I have this one and 2K11 for Xbox 360 and I play this one more. The controls are great, the rosters are fair, and the ratings are correct. THe jerseys are also fun and the season mode is great. Online play in this game is also great, playing either you vs. another or teams. The graphics and broadcasters are stellar. Get this game.
Summary: I'm not really a sports fan, but I liked this game and felt it was worth playing. The graphics are good and the game is easy to start and learn. If you do love basketball then I'm sure you would love it a lot more than me!
Summary: this game is better than nba 2k10.nba 2k10 has slow and blocky players.it has good graphics but the gameplay kinda sucks.that's my opinion.but 2k9 has smooth gameplay and the graphics are good theres alot of things you can do.and the players aren't slow and it is a good game game to play for people that like basketball.but i wish they would swap the cover pictures.
