Good thread Steve

First off Karl Malone does NOT have on his signature LA Gear shoes

Just look how he dunks past FRObe Bryant with those generic kicks!

It appeared as if the Great Western Forum had a different type of scorer's table in the Magic Johnson picture. I didn't notice that while watching the trailer.

Also, the inclusion of all these 90's teams home floors (Houston, Orlando, Denver, San Antonio) is going to really, really bolster roster sets this year.

are the numbers wrong on the Run TMC Warriors uniforms? they look like the same style numbers from the Warriors jerseys of 2000-2010.


Anthony Mason & Charles Oakley look buffer than in 2K11, which is a good thing.

Lakers Kareem looks spot on. maybe a little less hair than he had in 1987, but I couldn't care less.

Bobby Jackson's upper body looks darker than his lower body.

Oscar Robertson looks spot on.

Stockton looks better this year, and Lakers Shaq looks a little too skinny.

Rodney Rogers looks spot on.

Muggsy Bogues is short and Kendall Gill appears to have...blue'ish hair?

Olajuwon looks absolutely perfect.

Tom Heinsohn looks old as hell!

I love the knee braces with the holes in them.

Yep. I can't remember when 2K added those Warriors uniforms (2K10 maybe). The numbers have been like that since they brought them back. The real numbers should definitely be "duller" with less slants and points.

Numbers are wrong, shocking 2K is making that mistake..... This mode is gonna be awwwwwweeeeeeeeeesome.

One of the big big thing I loved was the dream shake (however I think it'll be much like Kobe's up fake reverse pivot move under the lay ups package), and the tv style they're implementing in this game.....

- Knicks Arena is more lit up this year then it has been in the past. An indication that we're finally getting the real Madison Square Garden?

- Calf sleeve/socks bug that people have been whining about seems to be gone.

-Mitch Richmond has his head shaven like in 1995.
-Danny Ainge has his 1986 look in the 1991 Blazers
-The Warriors are wearing 80's shorts
-Penny Hardaway has his 36 year old face
-Patrick Ewing has his old face too
-Horace Grant has the wrong goggles in the Magic
-Classic courts have the charge semi-circle in the paint
-The 80's and 90's Lakers accessories are purple



On the positive side, I love Bill Laimbeer's rants and complaints to the refs call

Muggsy Bogues came to bj armstrong shoulder lol!!!!!!

1.Duckworth!

2. I counted 3 different styles of knee sleeves. More accessory options this year?

3. A lot of the faces are spot-on.

Some 1970s jerseys have NOBs (names on back) when they should not.

Nitpick, haha. Everything else looks great if we can edit the shoes.

Haha, The Conseco Fieldhouse issue is all about money. It would be nice, but I think Conseco won't sign off on the "naming rights" and the City of Indianapolis has to have some sign off on it as well. Would be cool, but neither 2k or EA ever had an accurate depiction of the arena. It would be pretty awesome though @RleWorm to see it, but don't have your hopes up.

These classic players look good, hopefully they can keep it up and put some more stars in either via DLC or by 2k13. I'd like to see Reggie and Sir Charles, classic AI, Classic Shaq, heck put all the big time players in the game from their Rookie years. Have like the All-Stars Rookie Rosters. I think it'd be sick.

Looking forward to this game, as well has this years NHL. The addition of "Legends" really pulls me in.

"Whining"...it sounds bad to me. As if you meant that people have been complaining about something that's not important. I don't know what's the reason, but it happens here a lot that if people are asking for something other than gamplay, at some point there will alwas be some comments that claim these things are not important and 2K should only focus on gameplay.

"Shhhh! Don't post anything about graphics/accessories/shoes - it's not important and it's a waste of time".



(assuming that's what you meant)

There wasn't Canadian flag in the 80's.
Most of classic players wear this ****ty generic shoes (again!)
Hakeem Olajuwon looks great!
Magic got he's Converse shoes, but his accessories are purple
Penny looks old (how 2k can do that?!)
Mourning has weird face, Bogues is to tall.

I think that most of this legend players are preety wanting, but we'll se the full effect on October 4th
 
# 16 Starwipe @ 08/23/11 04:23 AM
I really want them to get Penny right. The current 1996/97 season mod for the PC version of 2K11 has him dead on! It's perfect. And we need to be able to put the sweat bands on the elbow already!
 
# 17 Dachozen1 @ 08/23/11 05:13 AM
lmao @ Mitch Richmond's face... my goodness, hope Noah and Bynum don[t have the same faces they've had since 2k8
 
# 18 portlandblazer @ 08/23/11 05:20 AM
the neck holes look like they all got stretched out

webber looks too light skinned

celtics socks are too long (hope they have medium stripped socks available and not just long)

richmond should have hair

kareem should have hair

im praying that number 34 on bucks is a generic and not supposed to be terry cummings, he should have hair and that looks NOTHING like him

looks like they could have nailed duckworths jumper

ewing needs black sleeves under his white pads

retro teams still dont have warm-ups

nuggets blue is too light

a majority of these faces are from previous versions of 2k

i wonder what 2k pays the guy whos job it is to put accurate accessories on these players. he could easily download my work and copy it over. oh well, looks like i might have my work cut out for me again.

So how about all the things they did right?
 
# 20 stlpimpmonsta @ 08/23/11 06:38 AM
looks like all they did was take faces they had from previous game and just put it on this game cause that Mitch Richmond was in last years game hidden on the disc.

2k is kinda lazy for this.
