NBA 2K11 Developer Insights: Making a Smarter Game


2K Sports has just posted another NBA 2K11 Developer Insight. This one focusing on making a smarter game, written by Mike Wang and Jerson Sapida.

Quote:
"Now let’s talk about AI. Authenticity and Signature Style have always been strong points of 2K basketball. For NBA 2K11, we really wanted to take that to new heights both on the player level, as well as the team level. When I came back to the team last year and saw how much work the guys had done with the player tendencies, in partnership with 82games, I was really impressed. The thing I was most impressed by is how well all of the new tendencies had been integrated into the code. You can really see how each player rating and tendency is translated into how a real basketball player “thinks” out there on the floor. When I first played NBA 2K10, the difference between the superstars and the not-so-superstars immediately came through. But as I took the game to the lab, and really dissected each player and team, it really gave me an appreciation for just how much work had been done in that regard. Kobe loved his dribble pull up, Melo attacked like Melo on the perimeter as well as in the post, and J.R. Smith launched any shot from anywhere and everywhere without hesitation."

Like the difficulty settings thing, I wonder if this will be applied in online games and separate the casual gamers from sim-style players.

This sounds sweet, whenever I play 12 minute quarters, I can never get realistic stats, now i can!

Thats some good stuff Mike, thanks for the insight.

Re: NBA 2K11 Developer Insight "Making a Smarter Game"

Really good article. Love the new gamestyle choices. I'll personally primarily play simulation, but fun to have different styles to choose from.

Really looking forward to seeing how smooth offensive plays and defensive rotations play out.

I really hope we can play "simulation" ranked games. That would make this game a must-buyfor me.
