2k3 doesn\'t feel right...ESPN a rental for me?

I been on the Madden/NCAA bandwagon since the begining but after getting Xbox Live I want to give Sega football a shot. I bought 2K3 for $8.00 and have played about 4-5 games and I just don't have fun playing it.

Should I rent ESPN to see if the improvements help the gameplay for me or should I have faith and just try to get used to the different game?

Well, what were your problems with 2K3? If it was things like dropped passes, and lack of sacks, then you probably are safe since those are going to be fixed. If you didn't like the speed of the game, or the difficulty of the game and passing game, then maybe you should keep trying to get used to 2K3, or rent ESPN, as that might just be the style of game you don't like, which won't really change that much.

If I were you, I should. People that have the demo and beta versions of this game say that it's better than the full version of 2K3... the complete game will probably blow it away.

The passing game is just so much harder than Madden. That might be a good thing, I'm not complaining. The game is beautiful though, so I feel like I'll be missing something if I don't get ESPN.

Football's always been the weakest of my videogame sports, since I've never actually played the sport.

NFL 2k3, with its design of dropped passes upon quick hits (unless you're rated 98 as a catcher, like the Patriots' Troy Brown), ended up forcing me to learn how to read defenses pre-snap.

I got better at it with one year of this game than in all the games from the first Genesis Madden through NFL 2k2 combined.

There's no way to get an accurate impression of 2k3 from just four or five games.

Adjust your sliders to get the feel you want.

<--- Left to make it easier and right ---> to make it harder.

Blocking makes your blockers better or worse
Passing makes your passing easier or harder
Running makes CPU tackling of your players harder or easier
Catching makes your reciever's catching easier or harder
Coverage makes CPU pass coverage easier or harder
Pursuit makes break-away runs easier or harder
Tackling makes your tackling of CPU players easier or harder
Kicking makes the field goal kicking meter move faster or slower
Fatigue determines how fast or slow your players fatigue

I hope this helps

Re: 2k3 doesn\'t feel right...ESPN a rental for me?

are you sure that sliders doesn't reduce or improve both user and CPU players ability ??
For example it looks like coverage slider impacts my coverage and passing slider impacts the CPU passing.
Did you come to these statements from your own experience or is it official stuff from VC ? Cause if I could know the real impact of the sliders it will be easier to adjust them. I can't figure out what's the real impact of each sliders from my testing.
