Default The Official NBA 2K9 Thread

Alright. I just bought the game.

I gotta say this shit is hard. I'm like 2-9 on "superstar" right now.
This game plays a lot different than 2k8.
The AI 's low post D is insane. Most of my shots are getting blocked.
Even my back-to-the-basket. That never happened to me in 2k8.

Also, another are the passes. You've got to be extremely careful.
In 2k8, I could easily do a bullet pass inside.
Now, they get deflected and stolen more often.

Phew, I got a lot of work to do.

I played with raps halfway through the season then I resigned as GM and started playing with the Spurs then I actually started winning games on superstar difficulty. Also, whenever I play 5 on 5 online the lag is insane.

Yeah they got rid of a lot of the 'cheesing' where you could just pound it inside, but the CPU still does a lot of it, thats why you really gotta find sliders on 2k share, then the game plays that much better.

Im still tinkering wit hthe sliders so all of the teams will play through their superstars instead of just going for the easy pass like the CPU likes to do, but its impossible how the cpu is coded, its annyoing that way.

I think next year they have to add some team tendencies so the teams will play like they do in real life, and then the series will take the very last step in becoming the most sim sports game ever. Live has come close with the team DNA and each team running their own style of offence, its just too bad the gameplay and graphcis are terrible.

I think the gameplay and DNA thing are great....

It updates everyday!... what sucks though..., I tend to use the Raptors alot and with JO not in the lineup (because of the live360 updates) they SUCK... it's impossible to win...

Otherwise when JO is in I'm killing within the paint and grabbing boards like crazy lol

Another funny thing is Will Solomans name is "Willie Soloman" in the game, and for about a week they had Bargnani as the starting 2 by default and Parker as the starting 3... lol

They did manage to fix it...

Just grabbed 2k9.

Very good game. Requires a bit of tinkering with the sliders, but it's definitely good.

Anyone here play online for ps3?
