Well, explain. What doesnt look 'natural' about it? Yes you are entitled to your own opinion, but thats the first time I have heard this game be called 'ugly'

Looks much better than 08.

I agree the dribbling animations look much better imo. I do agree with the other poster though who claims it doesn't look fluid and natural overall. It looks a tad bit robotic. With Mike Wang on board it won't be hard for this game to surpass live 08.

More and more gimmicks or "features" for this title? Either way, hopefully they can put together the fixes from last years issues behind them and compete. 09 looks a bit "iffy" as to if EA has gotten the title off the floor as of yet. Otherwise, 2K will again rock EA with another title run with NBA2K9.

Its not a gimmick its a feature, that they've demostrated it works.

Games looks a hellavu lot better than 08. Why is it everything they mention or include is a gimmick. You are so bias, all the videos of gameplay they've showed of Live 09 looked great from the signature shots to the animations. And DNA is a very welcome addition to the series. We don't know hands-on all how it works until October, but the stage demo was great so far.

2k has showed us nothing, yet people are so far up their ***, they are already breathing fairy dust.

Thats why I don't listen to rookies.
 
# 13 The 24th Letter @ 07/16/08 12:58 AM
IMO the features look good....but im not feeling the player models AT ALL...
every thing else is straight

That's exactly how Ray Allen shoots. Looked almost perfect. Hopefully it can play as good as it looks this year.

i just dont like how the jumpshot and net looks thats whats unnatural to me but it looks like theres a lot of live fanboys are in here because their saying people are far up 2k's u guys sound far up ea;s ***. this is a good feature though but it is another one of ea's gimmicks like dub trey said because they always cover up their bad gameplay with their great features u know its true....im not a fan boy i just like basketball games. so i buy both live and 2k but traditionally 2k has been better and most of u will see at the press conference...

Nice about the DNA thing, but I can't get over how those rims look. It had the same cartoony look back on the last gen systems
 
# 17 Jano @ 07/16/08 01:40 AM
How is this feature a gimmick? I mean its being used to help improve the gameplay and its giving us some things we have never experienced before in a sports game, like daily roster updates. I can understand you not liking the animations but come on this is far from being a gimmick.

Since I was the only one who Quoted Dub! You were referring to me. You know the fanboy of EA that is doing College Hoops 2k9 rosters, wait, thats made by 2k.

The guy who owns every 2k game ever made since Sega Saturn, but you know I love EA man.

You know the guy who does College Hoops rosters, NBA 2k covers, NFL 2k, and All-Pro Football Videos. But damn I love EA. Know your history son, before trying to agree with another rookie and his bad comments.

Also know that the previous Live designers, you know the ones that made that horrid 07. Are not the same guys who made 08 or the ones that are working on 09. And it shows in their efforts.

I for once just matured enough unlike a lot of the children on here, who continue to turn everything into a flame and fanboy rant fest.

The NBA Team, who happens to work for a department of EA sports, since they are seperate groups. Seem to have made great efforts to bring back the Live series. So far they have done nothing less than show us promise, on top of promise.

But my beloved 2ksports has yet to show anything, but he say articles. You know that group, I've supported for over 13 years.

I finally give EA's Basketball games some credit and I'm labeled. Check my gamertag and my gamer history before making immature comments.

Grow up already, these are games for us to enjoy, stop always trying to divide the groups. People can love and like more than 1 basketball game each season, without be jumped on or criticized.

Only people that should be pointed out, are people who make whack statements about a series they could care less about, but instead continues to downplay, and a series, they haven't purchased nor played, but go by demo's and videos. Gets some hands on and put in some honest unbias efforts and then you can talk bad about something.

In the meantime, grow up with the rest of us, who are being opened minded, mature and rational about the efforts that are presented to us. And *coughing* at least this group is showing us something, instead of hiding.

Visual Concepts team has too much talent, and Take-Two is tarnishing their image with the lack of info and efforts to promote the 2k9 games.

I feel bad for my boy Simballer, I know he's angry about their marketing but is loyal to the company. I hope someone leaks out something. So we can finally see 2k9.

I thought this season we might even get 3 games this years. But Sony's NBA '09 is terrible. (I guess if I said it looked great, I'd be a Sony fanboy) sarcasm end!

Have you played the game yet? No. I don't think you can see into the future either. Give it a chance or GTFO

They fail to promote every-single-year. That is their reputation. Lack of promotion should be expected. Nothing is tarnished. A bad game would tarnish their reputation, not lack of E3 hype.

Is that something that should be announced publicly?

Re: Live 09

I love the DNA feature. That looks great. The gestures and animations are still way too robotic for me. I could get over it if the gameplay felt smooth, but right now that stiffness is still off putting.
