    Personally i really love the feel and control you have throughout this game. Shooting is hard and Garnett cant throw up half court shots and make them. Its not a dunk fest for sure. You have to work to get around defenders but i did an alley oop successfully but still dont know how i did that. If your guy holds on to the ball to long he will get strpped as well. Shot blocking is difficult cause u have to time it right. Shootig is all about timing and seems to be pretty good. Can't just shoot up threes all day and make them. I really love the new system of controlling the ball with the right stick. It really makes the flow of this game alot better. I will be getting this game and don't even want to give 2k a try at all

    That impressed huh?

    What I saw/felt while playing Elite:

    -The Good:

    Controls. They are a very creative idea.


    -The Bad:

    • Graphics are garbage, really looks dated.
    • No speed burst... everyone is the same speed, kind of stupid if Gasol can keep up with Rondo on the break
    • I literally did a hook shot from the top of the key and made it. I understand the freedom need but really dude?
    • Players don't "play" like themselves in Elite, they all seem generic besides a couple of releases
    • Future telling defense... I think this may be the company's calling card. RTP still doesn't address this
    • Speaking of RTP, it doesn't have the effect I thought it would. The momentum in the other game looks and feels alot better.


    Honestly, this is a huge dropoff from Live '10... Mike Wang is the difference... he came from 2k for one year and it was making leadway... returns to 2k and Elite is struggling again.... I understand what direction they want to go but you can't release a game that doesn't seem "complete" yet. Basically, IMO, Elite has way more negatives then positives.

    i like the be a pro its gonna be like teamplay in fifa, as far as the gamplay i like the player controls even tho it take time to get used to, but i hate the presentation or the camera view whatever it is , it looks like a ps2 basketball game, its not fair to judge games by a demo, but thats what a demo is to judge the game, ill still be gettin both elite and 2k even though both demo's disappointed me

    Grew up on the Live series and I will have to admit...the 2K series has simply outclassed EA Sports since its debut. Honestly, it's not even a contest. If you want a realistic game, 2K delivers.

    There's a reason why 2K is rated higher every year among gaming outlets despite EA having bigger pocketbooks and better brand recognition...they just put out a better product. And yes, I try out both versions every year. This year isn't going to be any different.

    aprreciate it but this thread is far from a place to compare both games. Which is why it says Elite and not Elite vs 2k
