I have purchased every single version of the NBA 2K video game series, going all the way back to NBA 2K for Dreamcast, and I've never been disappointed.
But I'm excited for the release(October 5th) of NBA 2K11 more than any other game in the series. That's because of the inclusion of some guy named Michael Jordan(and I'm a Bulls fan, so I'm pretty much obsessed with him), who also happens to be the cover boy as you see above.
And not only can you play with MJ in the game, but eight of his Bulls teams, along with many other historic teams:
1985-86 Chicago BullsLink(Pasta Padre)
1985-86 Boston Celtics
1989-90 Chicago Bulls
1989-90 Atlanta Hawks
1989-90 Cleveland Cavaliers
1989-90 Detroit Pistons
1990-91 Chicago Bulls
1990-91 Los Angeles Lakers
1991-92 Chicago Bulls
1991-92 Portland Trailblazers
1994-95 Chicago Bulls
1994-95 New York Knicks
1995-96 Chicago Bulls
1995-96 Seattle Supersonics
1996-97 Chicago Bulls
1996-97 Utah Jazz
1997-98 Chicago Bulls
1997-98 Utah Jazz
And even that isn't my favorite thing about NBA 2K11. It's the "Jordan Challenge":
The mode allows fans to play with 10 different versions of Jordan that are authentic to that moment.Link(CNBC)
Fans can play whatever game they want in whatever order — in other words, the game comes with all the highlighted games and don't have to be unlocked one at a time.
—March 28, 1990 (regular season game against the Cavs when Jordan scored 69)
— March 28, 1995 (Jordan returns to the game and scores 55 against the Knicks)
—June 11, 1997 (the famous Jordan "flu game")
In each game, gamers are charged with different goals, including matching Jordan's point totals and shooting percentage.
If you hit six three pointers in a row like Jordan did against the Trail Blazers in 1992, the virtual Jordan will shrug just like he did in real life on that night.
But enough of my yapping. Check out this trailer for NBA 2K11:
