What settings and sliders are you guys using? I played on all the default settings, game play seems a lot tougher. The computer actually plays defense!? Which is fine, I will have to adjust, you can no longer do the easy pick and roll to your man in the paint.
Right now I'm playing association games on All-Star with simulation game style and 12 minute quarters.
For the first time ever in an NBA game, I can play 12 minute quarters, get realistic stats, and be challenged. Last year on 2K10, if I played 12 minute quarters on Hall-of-Fame I would still win by 50+ and hang close to 200.
