Just finished downloading an hour ago (3.27 gigs, what a drag). Graphics looks decent, could be better. Need more time to play it. Seems like a huge change from 06, I hope thats good. Now I gotta finish these gay ass English assignments. GOnna stay up until 2 to play.
jukes are a waste of time in 2k going against the comp. its either a blocking foul, turnover, or no success everytime.. Ive never crossed anyone up with it ever.
You must not know how to use the moves then. It's too easy to get inside anytime with any player using behind the backs, crossovers, and spin moves. You just need to spend more time playing. And to respond to your earlier comment, the pick and roll is pretty devastating but it isn't the only way to score. Move the ball around and the computer eventually can't keep up. Just find the open man just like in real ball.
I didn't mean to single you out, it's just that I noticed your comments above others.
Day 1- HATED IT. Would have taken it back if it wasn't for the "no opened returns on electronics" rule
Day 2- Figured out how the new freestyle stuff worked, but still got frustrated a lot and quit after 2 games
Day 3 thru 6- Too much going on to play it
Day 7- Played 4 games. It still has some frustrating qualities (computer cheats like crazy on high difficulty levels lol, too many fouls called too) but i actually am starting to like it. Once you get used to everything its ok. And its still fun to play with friends (if you have any)
yet us PC gamers continuously watered down version of Live that contains only the bare minimum of graphics adjustments.
at least you arent a Gamecube owner that gets screwed over with halfass PS2 ports.
and on another note
now that EA has a monopoly on football, it will be years until we get much more than roster updates with gimmick upgrades.
the NCAA Football series is practically the same game that it was 5 years ago with a couple minor tack ons like a shaky screen or changing the kick button to the right analog stick.
You still can't create or edit conferences. You have to replace real teams with your created ones if you want them in a dynasty or season. The DAA dynasty is piss poor. There is still no stadium editor. The commentary (save for new ads for sponsors) damn near exactly the same as its been for at least 3 games. However, there is actually less of it as the in between quarter, halftime and final score commentary is completely gone making it feel like the game isnt even finshed. There are still issues with clipping in replays as players consistantly walk through eachother. Every so often my quarterback throws the ball right after the snap even though I'm not hitting a button. Sometimes the camera freezes when I zoom it back to see the field and I have to pause and unpause to fix it. If you dont hit X to skip past post play animations there will be at least one or two celebration penalties EVERY game. I'm talking spike the ball and do a dance, fall all over eachother, NFL in your face sack dance crap that would rarely go down in a college game. The load times are annoying. You can pretty much win on constantly throwings deep steaks to fast WRs.
About the only good thing they added was the in season recruiting but even that feels like they half assed it b/c you dont have near the control you do when the off season recruiting part comes. It is helpful though.
Having ESPN attached means little. There are more ads for crap like cars and deoderant.
Its too bad b/c there is a good game buried under all the muck. But why should they care when they are the only ones that can make football games?
