NBA 2K11 News Post

According to Dan Rovell, NBA 2K11 will feature 10 different versions of Michael Jordan.

Quote:
"The games that fans can play with different versions of Jordan include all of the following: April 20, 1986 (Game 2 of the 1st round of the playoffs against the Celtics when Jordan scored 63), March 28, 1990 (regular season game against the Cavs when Jordan scored 69), June 3, 1992 (Game 1 of the first round of the playoffs versus the Trail Blazers when Jordan scored 35 in the first half), March 18, 1995 (Jordan returns to the game and scores 55 against the Knicks), June 11, 1997 (the famous Jordan "flu game") and June 14,1998 (the day of his last game in a Bulls uniform as his last second shot gives the Bulls its sixth title under his reign).


In each game, gamers are charged with different goals, including matching Jordan's point totals and shooting percentage. If you hit six three pointers in a row like Jordan did against the Trail Blazers in 1992, the virtual Jordan will shrug just like he did in real life on that night. Two of the 10 challenges don't have specific dates tied to it. You can play the 1991 Finals version of Jordan as well as play a game in 1990 style vs. Dominique Wilkins and the Atlanta Hawks, where gamers are challenged with holding Wilkins to 25 points or fewer.

The most challenging version of Jordan to play with likely will be the "flu game," where Jordan scored 38 points against the Jazz in what Phil Jackson would say after the game was the greatest game Jordan played."

Like I said before.. It's a good start.. Nothing groundbreaking tho.. I would love to hear some news about gameplay improvements and of course the most needed area which is Online.. But for now it is a good start I guess... Ghost

Wow, great news, it will be fun to play with the different Jordans, and the different Bulls teams. Hopefully 2K will allow us to match the past Bulls team against any current team also.

As a kid growing up in Chicago in the Bulls era...all I can say is I will pre-order NBA 2k for the first time in my life.

I bet they get 90% of males between 19-39 in Chicago to buy this game.

My guess of the 10:

• 69 pts against Cavs '90
• 92 Blazers Finals
• Jazz Finals flu game
• 55 pt Suns Finals
• 63 pts Celtics '86 playoffs
• 91 Finals Lakers (switches hands)
• (Game 7) 92 Knicks series
• Finally overcoming the Bad Boy Pistons in '91
• Comeback #45 Jordan dropping 55pts in NYC
• Against 'Nique

Was a little skeptical about getting this game, but now that you can play as jordan, i dont care if they dont improve the game at all from last year I'll be buying this game.

Wow. Nice news indeed

Man that sounds awsome. I ain't played another 2k basketball game since 2k7 which I still play until this very day. But this going to make go preorder it now. I love Jordon alot. He is a former UNC play and his was very good then. Can't wait until I get it.

yeah! id like to play as the Knicks and try to keep him from scoring but i really doubt thats going to be an option since HE is the cover boy....

i hope the classic teams will be playable...i mean that would be a waste if you cant even play them!

MJ coming with perks only he can bring. I wonder how the commentary will set the stage for some of these epic moments and achievements?

hmm good question...

As a Bulls fan, this just made NBA 2K11 a must buy. Can't wait.
 
Well at least one of my wishes was answered. Judging by the video on 2K Sports, MJ is wearing the Air Jordan shoes he wore at home during the 1997 playoffs.

2K needs to have not only the Jordan Brand shoes, but the actual Air Jordan shoes too.

gosh dangit...same people commenting about needing online improvement..if you dont have much to say about this i guess dont

# 17 amedawg00 @ 07/22/10 10:11 AM
I'm buying some Take Two stock atm....lol....this game will sell like hot cakes!
 
# 18 Epiffani @ 07/22/10 10:18 AM
@ Kellogg ruining this mode with some of his terrible lines. Saying something like Bill Wellington having the dunk of the night let alone the year, would be a buzz-kill prompting me to shut off my system and not finish the game.

SERIOUSLY! When has 2K ever released this much info in July EVER? And remember, there's a stream of news for 36 hours. This is only the first morning. Stop the freaking complaining.

He's wearing the shoes that they show at the end of the video.
