NBA 2K11 homemade video

NBA 2K11 homemade video

As I don't have the necessary expertise to review a game such as NBA 2K11, we will only show you an exclusive video that should please those of you who are over thirty and were there at the time of the Jordan and Johnson era. 1991, the first game of the finals opposing the Chicago Bulls to the Los Angeles Lakers, ring a bell? Well, that's actually the first contact you will have with the game when launching it for the very first time. A very effective introduction before the pièce de résistance, that is to say, the most complete basketball title ever created. Full of content, challenging but also accessible thanks to the possibility to tweak about every possible thing in the option menu, it will be difficult for EA to compete this time. The simple presence of Michael Jordan should be enough to convince even those who stopped watching basketball a decade or two ago. Now just to warn you, to show you some Jordan magic, I had to play in the rookie difficulty setting, so no need to point out the fact that I'm not a good player compared to you, I'm aware of that.

Jordan mania

Wow! I enjoyed NBA 2k10 but I wasn't sure if I would get this one but I bought it straight away after watching this video!

Absolutely gorgeous. It's a shame 2K games isn't making football (i.e. soccer) games.

Alan Parsons Project - Sirius, they used it in another Jordan trailer aswell, from what i've read it's the old Chicago Bulls theme, might be wrong though.

Videos like this make me want to buy the game, i've never been into NBA, and was way too young to experience 'Jordan mania', but damn, i'd be lying if i said these videos didn't send chills down my spine, can't imagine what it's like for those who did watch Jordan in his glory days.

Does NBA2K11 have a 3v3 mode or a practice mode to practice shots, dunks, and passing?
Commented on 2010-10-17 05:28:02
Yeah there is a practice mode where they kind of teach you general moves. It's under street ball or something of that nature
Commented on 2010-10-17 05:42:52
3v3 as well?

That might be the best looking basketball game I've ever seen.

    MrWhite Doing it that way before going to Ganon should take you in the region of about 100 hours, minimum. I only just finished the game 3 days ago. Nearly 8 weeks of hammering the game. (16 Hours ago)
