I was blown away with the look and feel of 2K11.. I will be trying the Live demo ( I hate the name Elite ) tonight if I can.. I am interested in seeing how they have used the real time physics.. Hope its better than NHL. The physics there felt very stiff and unresponsive.

I'm playing it a bit this morning, and so far I'm considering cancelling my pre-order. If NBA Jam wasn't attached, I'd probably go ahead and punt.

I don't hate it, but I can already tell I'll be spending a LOT more time with 2K11.

Can't say I like the idea of spending $60 just to play NBA Jam, though....

If you have XBox live I am sure they will release some type of add-on for NBA JAM or you will be able to download it for much cheaper

The announcing is terrible too. " Stripped !....Stolen!.... To..... Garnett".. EA must think we are still in the mid 90s and this stuff is still acceptable. I also saw no evidence of real time physics.

I didnt get to get the demo last night and now today PSN is down until 5PM. Just as well seeing these videos. Saved me some time.

I was excited for this game for a minute. The very SECOND I saw Boozer do a FT line dunk in traffic on the first playable version of this game seen in public, I knew it was going to be a disaster.

At the point that video came out they had TWO weeks left before the game had to go Gold. There was no way in hell to fix all the things I saw in that video a while back in 2 weeks.

That Jesus video is absolutely hilarious.

In brighter news for NBA Elite, it can't possibly be as bad as this game ...

After actually PLAYING the demo, it isn't that bad. It isn't as polished as 2K, and has quite a few bugs, but the control scheme destroys anything 2K has ever come up with.

As far as demo-to-demo? It kills the gutted version 2K put out.

Will I wind up buying 2K11 over this? yes, but if they can actually build a better game around the new control scheme, it could surpass 2K in future versions.

Is Elite the same thing as NBA Live?

If so, why did they change the name? Did they take a year off again to get the game "correct"?

Viewing this thread reminds me A. I do not play videog ames nearly as much as I used to and B. I have not visited the NBA Live Series Center in forever (I used to love going to that forum, and they really loved some Reggie Miller in the NBA General Talk forum there)

It was a stupid decision to change the name of the game. Live 10 was actually an improvement and I liked it over a massively disappointing 2K10. This year they added a great new control scheme, but it feels like they took a step back in everything else.

I'm amused that the 2K fanboys feel the need to come over here in this thread, and tell everyone how great 2K is. If you're actually that in love with your game, you wouldn't need to resort to that.

Maybe, but it's got a long way to go. I can just see online where people who master the offensive controls will be unguardable.

I'm not sure who you're talking about.

I played and bough Live for years but gave up on it.

I finally gave 10 a shot again and it wasn't bad but it wasn't that great. Neither franchise was good last year IMO.

I'd converted to 2K back around 7 or 8, but 10 was just a bad game IMO.

So I don't consider myself a "fanboy" either way. I was planning on buying both, but after playing both demos and having read up on both of them prior to that, I just don't want to spend $60 on a game I don't really care that much about, so I'm going to pass on Elite for now. Maybe I'll change my mind during the season.

I'm just relieved that it looks like (though the damn demo is so thin it's still hard to say for sure) 2K has regained it's footing this year, though. I don't think I could handle two years in a row where both franchises sucked.

The control scheme works on defense as well.

It does offer the most control you could possibly have over a player. I'd be very interested in a good game built around that. The game handles extremely well. The rest of it is crap, but there' something to get excited about for the future.

listen i buy which ever game is better. i am unbias, toward 2k and EA i buy fifa cause it is a great game. I dont buy the game based on company i buy IT BASED ON IF IT IS GOOD or not i like 2k11 better this year. Last year i bought Both games, this year live/eite took 4 steps back and that is why i will not purchuse the game. trust me im not a fan boy they are childish, if 2k sucked i would not waste my money

I haven't played either demo yet, but 2k sucked enough last year that I won't buy an NBA game this year. And I haven't done that since NBA Live '95 came out.

And for the record, 2k servers are absolute dog ****. Elite may suck, but if you can even get an online game without massive lag it'd be an improvement over 2k.

Also, the whole idea of "fanboyism" is retarded to me. If I buy a product and it sucks, I'm going to say it sucks. Just like Madden. If I buy a product and I love it, I'm not going to say that makes the competition suck. It always cracked me up when Xbox or PS3 fanboys argue over which was better.

I agree with you about the controls up until the point you actually have to shoot. The iso moves are awesome, easy to do compared to 2K11. I was able to pull of a spin move and hop step on command in this game, but in 2K11 I can't do it on command. However the the shooting in this game is broke. Left and right aim meter and a power meter. Made if very hard to hit any kind of jumper in the game.

Haha that video is hilarious. I never said the game was good, the dribble controls are very solid. Maybe not realistic to every ball player, but the input you as a the gamer is very intuitive to me.

Really?
09-27-2010, 03:49 PM
Some of this is ridiculous... The demo is okay, not amazing but like has been stated shows a lot of promise, to me it is more realistic in a lot of aspects than 2k11...For you people worried about this dunking thing I'm pretty sure that it won't be on the game too long, there will probably be an update when you very soon that takes care of that, it will probably also take care of the "Jesus" thing that was pretty weird.

I think some people are writing off the game because it wasn't as easy to play right away, getting used to different types of controls, especially shooting with accuracy is frustrating, but just like when you were a kid and learned how to play other games I'm sure you can do it again with this.

I will say that I don't like the no acceleration part but I am happy with the strides they are taking towards making a better game.

Really?

The developers called the dunking from the free throw line "the Boozer" because of its initial appearance in a game-play clip. They said this bug has already been removed from the final build.

They also said that bigger players, like Andrew Bynum in one video example, will lose the ball when trying to do crossovers like the one in the practice mode of that demo video.

Also, the shooting is purely skill-based, so don't blame the game if you miss. I actually think that can be a problem because it doesn't take defense into account at all, almost making shooting too easy.

Defense is taken to account, they also make it so that when you have a defender or double team on you that the window for making the shots becomes smaller, in some cases almost none existent so it won't be as easy as it sounds to hit every shot if you have the skills.

Pointless to keep posting stuff out what has happened so far, one of the major reasons for a demo for a game that is just being developed is to figure out glitches and ways to improve a game.

Granted all of the improvements probably wont come this year but the glitches will be fixed....this stuff is just for humor now... wait til the actual came is released with the patches...

EDIT: I personally was excited for downloadable patches before they even started that with gaming consoles. I just think the companies are getting lazy, and EA is extremely guiltily of that IMO. On that said note, I am also looking forward to the day when you will not own the game but simply download it from the internet and just have a serial code or something like that.

I agree
<O:p</O:p

I have no problem with patches, as I said in my post.<O:p></O:p>
<O:p</O:p

What I do have a problem with is companies treating the release date as a demo and then patching up things that should have, and IMO would have, been fixed had they done a thorough beta (or even done one at all)<O:p></O:p>

EDIT: I personally was excited for downloadable patches before they even started that with gaming consoles. I just think the companies are getting lazy, and EA is extremely guiltily of that IMO. On that said note, I am also looking forward to the day when you will not own the game but simply download it from the internet and just have a serial code or something like that.

yes im fed up with EA beacuse of madden chris johnson breaks 7 tackles every time he touches the ball. Pro Tak is a joke the only reason i like 2k football so much is the tackling system. Also EA dont touch superstar mode which could be really good

Really?

Uh, the point of a demo isn't to figure out bugs. That's the point of a beta, or testing. The point of a demo is to give people a taste of the game so they want it.

I didn't say it was the only point but I said it was a major point (yes the other major points are to show off your game, and to judge the market of how your game will do when released) when you are bringing out a WHOLE NEW game so that you make sure you get everything taken care of before the actual game comes out.

And yeah I guess that they must have really had a lot more work to do... kind of sad I was really looking forward to playing this game, guess I will just have to wait until next year...

SUCKS that they couldn't get it up to par before its release date..

games have to be patched thats just a reallity. We are past th days of the ame is finished when you buy it. It is much easier to patch the game then to put it in right away.

No it's not easier, it's cheaper on the publisher. The publisher can then move the bulk of the development team on to the next game. While a few people lag behind and fix the mess of a half assed game.

And no, in releasing a demo the point is in NO WAY to find bugs. You're releasing a very small section of the game with quite a few limitations. 99% of the bugs in a game won't even be capable of being found in such a small sample size of the available code. The sole purpose of a demo is to drum up interest in the game. Which as we've seen in NBA Elite, does quite the opposite when it's buggy.

well for most companies it is easier to patch games. Than to figure it out on the fly. there will always be patches just face it. i dont like it but thas how gameing is done now.

That does not make sense to me.

Would it not be easier to fix the issues during a proper beta testing.....

No one is arguing patches are bad, at least not that I have seen
