I never was a Jordan fan so this doesnt appeal to me. Actually I'm a little disappointed this warranted a entire "mode" but I'm sure there's more than enough people who loves this idea.
 
# 2 Jukeman @ 08/11/10 08:55 PM
Someone should get a check...
 
# 3 bigeastbumrush @ 08/11/10 09:00 PM
Love the idea. Only downside is this is a cheesers wet dream.

Way to capture the casual gamers' market 2K. Shrewd business move.

You know there are thousands of cheesers out there and what better way to get sales than to introduce a mode where they can go haywire.

I tip my hat to y'all.

There are several additions. For example:

Goal 2: Shoot 55%+ from the field

That's a new one, and a one that I've been asking for. I'm really happy they added it. It just helps you to understand what MJ did during the 1991 Finals.

I'm sorry but that IMO was a waste of a insight. We already knew that there were certain things required to accomplished the jordan challenges. Give us insights more in the line of the last one. It was informative and contained a lot of new info pertaining to fixing problems in the Franchise.
 
# 6 youvalss @ 08/11/10 09:53 PM
I don't think it was a "real" insight, just an update. They pretty mych copy-past everything + several lines of what they added. I'm pretty sure we'll get a "real" insight soon.

Yeah, that one stuck out. I had to google the 1991 Finals box score to check and see if he really did that (57 assists in five games). Unbelievable.

Yeah. Magic had about 12 assits per game, so MJ was right behind him. It's just amazing!

You act like there are a limited number of insights and this took one away.
 
# 10 Hotobu @ 08/11/10 10:00 PM
Yeah the average 11 assists one will probably be a bitch. Especially if they don't do something to ensure collapsing defenses to allow for a drive and kick game, and if they deliver on the promise to decrease paint scoring. I wonder how many people will try to force double OT in the 63 point game.
 
# 11 Rocboyz101 @ 08/11/10 10:16 PM
If this doesn't take away the friday insight, I'm fine.
 
# 12 Sinner @ 08/11/10 11:09 PM
wonder how much his stats will go down for the Flu game? Love having Jordan in the game and he way they seem to have changed up the gameplay but playing as Nique and some of the other legends is also something im really looking forward to.

Cant wait to see trailes with classic teams..hope they throw them in at least one trailer.
 
# 13 youvalss @ 08/11/10 11:12 PM
When you play the flu game, try to sit away from the screen. The last think you want is to catch something...

Perhaps like any normal player on association mode that can play through a tough injury (overall -15 aprox.)

Hitting 6 three's in the first half v the Blazers is going to be tough. I mean Jordan couldn't be rated much above 80 at the most for his 3 point rating could he? That one may take a while.

Yeah, and imagine thinking you have just scored the 6th one but...no - you stepped on the line...
 
# 17 aloncho11 @ 08/12/10 02:13 AM
Maybe he will start the challenge by being on a hot shooting streak, you know when you switch to the ingame menu that shows who's hot or cold.
 
# 18 bmchoszen @ 08/12/10 04:21 AM
Wheres the 1993 BULLS FINAL Team? That phx suns finals series MJ was at his BEST MAN! Barkley was as well and both teams were jacked.

MJ was averaging like 40 a game in that series man.

They should add a dunk off between the 1988 dunk contest members as well MJ NIQUE went at it lmao

I wonder if they had trouble getting Barkley in the game seeing as he's had his own games before? You'd think that Bulls Suns series would have made the cut?

I doubt their goal for this mode was to make things super tough since this mode is really just the prelude to Jordan career mode.Most likely they'll give him a big stat boost in his 3pt rating to account for his performance in the game. I wouldn't be surprised if they had his 3pt rating at 90+ for the first half, or even the whole game.
