NBA 2K11 News Post

Destructoid has posted their NBA 2K11 hands-on preview.

"First, lets talk polish. When the developers first went about making NBA 2K11 more polished, they started with the cameras. All the angles now support truer broadcast shots, so now you will never play from an angle that is not true to how viewers watch the games themselves. After working through the cameras, players' faces were redesigned, and special focus was placed upon the small details. If a player has a special tic that he always does, or if he always wears a sock a certain way, that's how the game will represent him.

As for control, a lot of effort has been placed upon redesigning the animation. Whereas before players would be locked into an animation, unable to mix things up, now players can shift and move with a lot more fluidity. Again, the R-stick is used for making shots, and small “cell phone reception” bars will pop up next to a player to indicate their success at performing a shot. It's all stuff we've come to expect from an NBA 2K game, so that's all well and good."

Polished. The best word you can hear about a sports game.

It's their hands on preview, you think they have read every other preview that's on the internet? Of Course their going to be excited about Jordan.

2k11 has yet to receive a negative review, all signs point to success.

Anyone else here hoping for a return of the Choose Your Own Adventure Franchise Mode?
