Not sure if you ran plays but if so did the play start in an acceptable amount of time? ex. Some plays on 2k13 doesn't run/initiate until late in the shot clock, tempo.

You couldnt run plays or even set picks. I also dont get where those videos came from with OKC and the ability to set picks. Must have been a non-show floor version.

So this is last years game from a presentation standpoint?
nothing different in sound or commentary?
What about sneakers and accessories?

Thanks for sharing your experience

Wolf great preview, I must say though your thoughts on spacing have me concerned. Are you saying the players on offense are not in the right positions for spacing OR that they are in the right positions but the defense is still recovering too fast.

Commentary was new of course. Accessoires stuff I guess as well. But the loading screens,camera cuts and pregame rituals plus hand shaking looked pretty much identical.

I think its a bit of both. I mean there were instances when Ray Allen was open on the perimeter and cut to the basket when I was driving. I hated that in 13 and 12. But more obvious to me was the fast recovery of the help defenders. It is a little bit better because you can shoot much quicker and the passes have more zip but thats an issue for years and its clearly not fixed to a degree where I would say its good.

edit: to me its also a thing of the players moving around too much to run plays. thats typically when it happens that someone like chalmers is under the rim while driving with lebron.

One more thing about the spacing issue with the series in general. Call me crazy but if someone still has the 2K12 Demo (!) on his console please check it out and tell me that there isnt awesome spacing in that version. Dont know what happened there but I think this is the best its ever been. Shame it was only this way in the demo.
