Solid NBA 2K9 Preview

Posted September 15th, 2008 at 9:30 pm

While we are now three weeks out from release of NBA 2K9 and have not yet seen the game in action (outside of the early E3 footage) it is only a matter of time until the media finally arrives. That appears to be inching closer as Jon Robinson of ESPN has posted up a full preview of the game. There is also the big online feature still to be officially unveiled and one would think that would be happening within the next week or so.

Last year, gamers complained about 2K8 being a tad slower than 2K7, so the developers pushed the speed back to 2K7 levels while at the same time adding even more authenticity to the way the players on the court move and react.

Of interest from the preview are notes on the Association mode and integration, the advanced shot stick, improvements to player personalities, and 2K Share options amongst other areas that are touched on. You can check out the full preview here.
