I have midterms and a new born so I haven't played as much as I normally would,I also only played with the default pro settings right out of the box!-Bounce passing is AWESOME!-Defense is BACK!-The A.I. will abuse you even on Pro-CONTACT,CONTACT,CONTACT! These animations are game changing! You have to play it to believe it-Right stick dribbling is sooo much fun-Shoe creator is sick!! (side note: If you go to my shoes and click on certain default shoes, you can change the colors and materials!)-Half court heaves now have new animations-The self alley oop is hardly used by the cpu-jerseys have new shadings which look great! The finally have the retro suns jerseys in there-Watch the opening video, it is sick!-Game intros are fantastic and pump you up!-faces are more realistic, but some are hit or miss as always.-Rookies look great this year!-Players with the emphatic block skill REALLY throw your s$#t!-Sometimes players will move bigger players out of the way on dunk attempts, but very seldom...-Arenas seem more true to their real life counterparts-There are over 22 dunk packages and about 10 different dunk slots so you will hardly see the same dunk twice!!-there are about 5 slots for pre game animations and some of them are hilarious!That's all I can think of for now,when I play some more I will update it!
