You know how now you can change your shot in the air, that is going to take some time to get used too.

But I LOVE IT!

The demo is gr8. Probably will go un noticed, but post moves have been upgraded quite a bit.

I saw the new trailer om Gametrailers.com, and it sorta pisses me off to see the Spurs get posterized twice.

Still awesom-o trailer though.

im pretty sure its on the psnetwork since tuesday? i didnt bother checking myself but i know it out. i was waiting for 360s version so go ahead and get it.

my review:

since its a demo i know all the gamestuff isnt final. that being said, it still looks amazing, the players, the crowd courts definately an upgrade from last season.

the gameplay is something to get use to for me.. then again i had the same problem when it came to 2k7 to 2k8, so i assume this will work the same way. i like the new change shot in air thing it can come in use :)

its a lot harder to just drive right into the basket, help defense and everything seems to mess that up a lot same with silly passes :).

i only played it twice, once as the lakers where i beat them, with about 3 steals 1 blockand 10 more points than them... then as the celtics i had less points, but i had like 4-6 steals, 2 blks and i think i was down by like 4-6?

In 2K8 it was ridiculously easy to rack up assists. With the AI it ended up with at around 10 assists each game for the teams best big men, just by passing out of double teams.

Did they fix the ridiculous assist rates?

LOL Thats like when I boycotted Madden and played NFL 2k5 until 09 just came out. It was super awkward with the hit stick and not having to tap A to turbo.

the demo is sick compared to live. i just switched over this year after playing 2k8 on ps3 this summer and i gotta say 2k9 looks way better on 360 than 2k8 did on ps3. but the game looks as good as live and feels more real. does anyone know if we can use the crossover moves in the demo or do we set it up in the real game?

The demo took me no getting used to. To me its much easier to drive this year w/ turbo. The floor spacing was horrible last year and they corrected that, so that helps. I was dominating w/ Rondo. I pressed Fisher every chance I got and poked the ball out w/ regularity. I'm also addicted to using his ball fake. 2K did it again. Live stepped it up this year and they now have a game that's actually playable. But 2K is king again.

I agree with Rondo..He burns..Super fast,!!Ball fake is incredible and hes spins quick....I was trying to deal him in the 2K9 lg were going to run. But NOT NOW...

the difficulty on the demo isnt that high, usually the online mode difficulty (that a lot of os play on) is a bit harder to nail shots etc.. which helps in that assist area

you can definately do cross over moves :)

:pity: you obviously are just here to bait. you havnt even checked the game because its a LOT different than 2k8 and still way superior than live. 2k2 > live 09

UGH! Such a pain in the ***. My Xbox broke and I had to send it in 2 days ago, so I probably won't be able to play 2K9 until a few weeks after it's release unless I play it at a friends house

I love it.

Fluid movements, great layup animations, signature shots and free throws, and much more make this a very, very good game.

Hmmm.. I don't know about the difficulty set in the demo. Should've been more difficult. I made identical jumphooks with Bynum and Gasol and they all went in. I give the demo 7/10.
