Thanks for reading that achievement/trophy thing. As I'm a filthy street walker when it comes to those (but don't worry: I never play a game for them, I just like having them).
So in preperation for NBA 2K11, I bought NBA 2K10 and it just showed up in the mail. Here's the deal with this series, and I think all sports games this generation: What the EFF do these games do outside of roster updates?
I don't hate the game, far from it, but seriously, I played the mess out of 2K6 and 2K7. Frankly, 2K10 feels exactly like 2K6. Nothing has changed. Graphically, it looks the same. The controls seem worst than I remember them (maybe I'm just unfamiliar of how the older one played). Actually, that's probably my biggest complaints: graphics and controls. This game doesn't look bad, it just doesn't look good. 2K6 impressed more of my friends than PGR3 when it came out. Yet, I load the game up today, looks the same. It's mainly the jagged edges in the game and the audience just looks like some PlayStation 1/N64 bullcrap. Character models? Look great! It's just their clothes don't look as good as they did almost 5 years ago. And the controls? Meh, they're not horrible, they just don't feel as responsive as some games. I guess you just have to try it.
It's a solid title, just a little worried that 2K11, the Jordan edition, is just going to be that: Jordan on 2K6. Update your freakin' graphics engine, 2K Games!!
Now, off to pick up StarCraft II so I can cuss my monitor out for losing my 300th game in a row.
