Default NBA2k11. Worth 11 bucks or not?

Due to my xbox giving out and not having it fixed for a couple of years I haven't bought a basketball game since NBA2k8. Is NBA2k11 worth the upgrade? I know 2k12 came out just a few months ago, but I can't see paying a lot of money for a game that will be 20 bucks in probably less than a year. So, just how good is K11?

My Player is bad, but otherwise it was a pretty enjoyable game.

just buy the game used and you can return it in like 7 days. You can probably find it cheap on ebay as well..

2k11 is good but it doesn't compare to 2k12.

Is k11 a major upgrade from 2k8? I'm not the kind of person that HAS to have the latest version. Just one that is fairly up to date while also being good.

OP, 2k12 is better.


2k11 is one of those games you'll have in your collection, but once you play 12, you'll realize just how much is left out in 11, when you compare them. Way more post moves, up and under moves, and the turn around jumpers are a lot faster in 2k12 than in 11.

Plus, player faces look way better in 12 (2k11 suffers from wooden Face-Dead Eye syndrome on a few players), though 12's faces aren't "Perfect" perfect.

Oh there's also more camera options, and from what I've heard, the MY Player is better. What's also cool is they made a MY Player-Create a Legend mode, where you can make ANY player a legend, and not just Jordan this time.

You also get more classic teams to run with, if that's your thing, along with 6 different Bulls teams.

Edit:

I see. If you're more of a casual fan, then maybe 2k11 might not be a bad choice. The learning curve will be there, however , no matter which version you get. So make sure you read the built-in control features in the game menu.

2k11 is a huge upgrade over the 08 games, so I'd say it is worth $11 if you don't want to shell out the money for 2k12.

I'm just one of those people that don't have to have the newest thing. Just something that is good and fairly up to date. The one thing I dislike is that with newer games the stars are older and that makes them less enticing when it comes to the franchise mode. Which is what I play most of the time.

2k11 has a bunch of jordan challenges which are pretty good and aren't featured in any other game.
