They gave NBA Elite a weak a.ss rating because it WAS weak. Live 10 was dope and I havent even played a Live game since 06 (Wade on the cover), but they decided to completely scrap the game instead of adding on to it and now its all terrible thats why they canceled it
And as far as presentation 2k11 and 2k12 are the best 2K games made to date. But as far as GAMEPLAY there's way too much computer controlled aspects on 2K12 that make the game unrealistic. Fake momentum, missing open jumpshots, steal spammers, fake volleyball tipping rebounds, unrealistic defense sliding around, overpowered zone defense, slow layup animations... I can go on and on.
Im a beast at the game too but just because Im good dont mean ima praise the game like its the greatest. Its too much flash and too little substance
This...I've had plenty of situations where I had one of my teammates cut to the basket (and he would be the only one under the basket when he cuts), and what pisses me off is that I would pass it to him when he's open under the basket and they would make him fumble the ball just so the defense can catch up to him...Like I could make a direct pass to Rudy Gay and he would be under the basket by himself...then they would make him fumble the ball...That sh*t ain't realistic.
I've been playing 2K ever since it was on the Dreamcast, and I have to say that I've been disappointed with these last 2 games. Of course I would play it over Live, but the glitches, animations, and the fact that they dumbed this game down for the casual player isn't a good look.
