Default NBA 2K9 living rosters

Very interesting concept. You can have your player attributes altered to match their real counterparts as the 08-09 is played out in real life! Looks like Live also has a feature like this.

Freaking amazing. 2K and EA are really stepping it up this year. :)

And guess what, I started working for a games magazine three days ago, and I just received the review version of 2K9! I'm so psyched about it! Unfortunately I'll only be able to play it tonight, but I'll post my thoughts here right away!

Alright, I just played two games and man, it's brilliant. Pretty much EVERYTHING has improved. Heck, I don't even know where to begin, just ask what you want to know!

Has it improved very much since last year? What are the ratings like? What magazine do you work for? How does it compare to Live?

I work for Gunk, a Belgian gaming magazine. I'm guessing you've never heard of it. ;)

It's improved drastically since last year IMO, at first you won't notice it as much, but as soon as you start paying attention to all the details you'll see. Loads of new animations, everything looks much more fluent. Also the AI has become way smarter, players actually try to get open. The alley oops are better, the post game is better, the overall flow of the game is better... I really can't think of anything negative actually... Well, it still has some minor clipping issues (hands still don't really touch the rim when dunking), but overall it's freaking great.

The presentation is also superb. Replays are now shown during out of bounds breaks, time-outs and in between quarters. It really feels like you're actually watching a live game! The commentary still sucks ass, though.

Even the dunk contest has improved and plays way more fluently...

The graphics are pretty much the same, maybe they've added a little more detail, I'd have to have a look at it once more.

The ratings, I'm sorry my friend, I haven't really given them a look. I will do so later on.

Live 09 is good (played it as well), especially compared to last year's version. You get lots of bang for your buck, a ****load of modes (training mode for instance works very well), and much more coherent gameplay. 2K9, however, wipes the floor with Live. As always. :)

Hope that helped!
