I hated it when it came out to the point that I almost dropped the mode all together. One of my friends already did that. With that said, in the end I feel it's better. The basics:
-Athleticism is slightly reduced (I had like a 65 dunk and I was doing and-1's -easy)
-Apparently they adjusted shot releases, I didn't notice.
-You have to run plays
--Gives you a circle you need to stand on, arrows telling you where you have to go, places to set screens; you are not penalized for not following the play. Biggest issue is you can't just press A and get the ball anymore. They hardly just pass it up unless you earn it.
-Passing is harder; if you have bad hands you could easily drop the catch. Also, if your passing is low then you could easily toss it out of bounds or completely away from your target. Don't even attempt passing out of a shot, automatic turnover.
This is all I could think of at the moment, it gets annoying but in the end, it's realistic. No one just shouts for the ball and gets it unless they are looked down on by the team. If you do bad, they run plays against you where you don't get the ball. Your stats will dip if your used to the older style, but you will eventually bring it back up. I averaged 37 PPG, dropped down to probably 25 PPG but now I'm steady at 31 PPG so yeah, you just figure out the system. I like it more now, makes the older one seem like an arcade
