Agreed. Besides animation/gameplay evolution the only really other big graphical thing I want to see is some nice self shadowing. Looking very good!

I've no idea who any of these people are?
But they look realistic enough to me.

Actually last years version was a disappointment. It was the same exact game as the Xbox game, only with sweat and hi-res. The coach and anything sideline looked horrendous. NBA Live had more of an upgrade from the Xbox to the Xbox360 as far as visuals. I never liked anything EA until they moved into the next gen. I hope NBA 2K7 takes back the crown.

Anyone can make a normal sports game. I will give someone props when they do something ORIGINAL and make a fun 3rd person sports game (besides love football). At least it might actually be fun to play. Plus, basketball is pretty much lame, just like every other team sport out there.

They say seeing is believing, so I'll wait until I rent it before I buy in to any hype. Last years game, all the screen shots and renders were awsome. And every review was talking about how nice the player models were, and how next-gen (i hate that term) it was. When I finally got a 360 and popped the game in, I was disgusted by the apearance of the players. Everyone looked like monsters....monsters with extremly smooth skin. 2K sports must have really liked the smart blur effect.

It seemed like they really phoned it in. I actually had a preference towards the plastic models in NBA Live... Just as opposed to nba 2k6.

Sorry for the rant. This was my fist (of many) dissapointments on a very good xbox 360 platform.

This game looks amazing and the sweat is done rather nicely.
Commented on 2006-08-03 21:13:15
Good God look at the wood floors! It seems they have nailed the image quality this time around, no more weird sweat masks :D
Commented on 2006-08-03 23:15:06
Well this years version will have pretty much every players different shooting form. New passing system. I can't wait.

Looks rather good, but the resolution, color dithering and lack of motion blur or other fancy effects is cause for concern (concern that they dont have all the tools and talents they should have).

I'd say potentially the best looking NBA game yet, but we'll see.
Commented on 2006-08-04 01:50:24
yes! , this is fantastic , screw EA , i want this game , gave me a hard on.
Commented on 2006-08-04 11:35:53
yeah looks much better than the old version! Next Gen is comming^^

Shame we'll never see a football game look this good.


About the game

What's up?
  • droezelke
    droezelke WD2 is more fun than WD1, but it's so easy. Also, the main quests are 'meh'. WD1 had a more focussed story. The story in WD2 is uninspired. (1 Hour ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Sdarts: Don't forget that people are getting sick of CoD, they didn't trust WD anymore after the first. Dishonored 2 got too little PR according to me. (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker quests, which is a goddamn shame, a goddamn shame. For sure they could have come up with some meaningful side quests with at least a story. (2 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Definitely enjoying FFXV more but I am solely talking about the story missions, some good diversity there. I also really like the Chocobos. Just such a shame that the side quests truly are all fetch (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I just think it's a pretty bad sign if a new game can't generate interest on a free weekend. The fact that there are other new games is not a very compelling excuse imo. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Black Ops is also the most popular Call of Duty sub-brand now. (4 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Also, even WD2 and Dishonered 2 sold much less than the previous games in their series. Same for CoD:IW, very few games that got released this Holiday season sold more than their predecessors. (4 Hours ago)
