I got to play this last night on ps3. I played the first half of an exhibition game, Thunder vs Mavericks. I was losing at half so I quit. I played a 2 on 2 in the street mode and lost that too lol. Then I played the first quarter of the first Jordan challenge, and I was on pace to beat it.
I was a little disappointed though in the gameplay. The presentation was great and all, but I still felt like I got stuck in animations when I tried to dribble/go in for a layup/etc. And literally every pass I attempted, other than those at point blank range with no defenders around got tipped and stolen by the defense. In the Jordan challenge there was one play where we kept trading stolen passes at halfcourt and neither team got to the opposite foul line for like 45 seconds. It was pass, tip, steal, pass, tip, steal.
That was a major issue for me. And it just didn't seem as good as it's been cracked up to be. To me it feels like Madden 11 compared to Madden 10; it is better than 2k10 but not by much and there's still the same issues.
