Default Is NBA 2k8 as good as 2k9

I bought 2k9 for a week then returned it and wasn't impressed at all... It was hard to control, post offense was hard, something was wrong with the graphics, the roster ratings are too high, its a hard game. 2k8 just seemed better imo.. What you guys think?


BTW, Be my pupil

2K8 was a bit too robotic IMO in controlling players. Too much excess movement (random crossovers) when I just want to move from point A to point B. I do prefer 2K9's graphics but I agree, post offense is confusing.

2k9 is too hard for me i play on pro to allsar because anything beyond that is too hard

2k8 was easier plus online was better you can it had lobbies plus it was faster so playing with the warriors was great

Hey man, that depends really on what your looking for. I had 2K8 on the PS2 and had a lot of fun with it. The graphics were cool and it was an overall great game, however it was just too easy to beat, after a while it started to get a little boring cause i was crushing teams on Hall of Fame mode by like 30 and it was just not competitive.

I then got a PS3 and 2k9. And i have to say that the graphics are the best i have ever seen, i thought it was real, and it blew me away when i first played it in comparison to 2k8...but then again i have the ps3 on an HDTV for the best gaming experience. Not sure what it looks like on a PS2 or regular TV. 2k9 is very very competitive, and i must admit that it is very hard. I usually play on Pro mode, i bumped it up to ALL star but was getting crushed. I thought i was really good, but i cant even beat ALL Star mode, so im playing with pro, and then eventually i will go to all star then superstar, hall of fame. Its good and if you are looking for realistic style play and competitiveness, its great. If you want an easy game to beat stick with 2k8 if you want more challenge, get 2k9

NBA 2K9 on PS3 is the best Basketball game ever made.


If you're still playing on PS2 or XBox, it's seriously time to upgrade.


You can get a 360 for what? 200 bucks?

By summertime PS3's will be 300 bucks... and you can already get them for 300 bucks if you sign up for a Sony Credit Card.

I disagree with everything you said. If anything, it's the other way around.

no,2k8 was too easy.2k9 isnt that hard.once you get the hang of free throws.all I do in the post is shoot j-hooks and pump fake,dunk/layup.Online on 2k9 is fustrating,it stopping every 30 seconds saying,"waiting for opponet (34)".graphics,face textures,and conpeditive gameplay are waaaaay better than 2k8.
