Lol @ the Kinect hate in the article...

Kinect Sports 2's DLC quietly added basketball and it's the best motion control basketball there out there. It isn't the full game it emulates the allstar game 3-point contest, which NBA Live used to include back in EAs earlier titles.

Kinect could easily be used for foul shots which would actually be a blast. But nobody is really jumping all in with Kinect this far. People bash RARE for developing K Sports but those two titles still destroy anything that have come since.

"it's the best motion control basketball there out there."

How many games is it up against to win such a title? Didn't people were clamoring for a motion control "fake jumpshot" game. I used to do that as a kid. . . But in preparation for doing it in an actual game of basketball.

@ Biggest

Wii Sports has a basketball free throw game in it.

I agree that there is not much competition out there when it comes to basketball motion games, but for what there is, Kinect sports 2 is the best thus far which isn't really saying much but like Evildead is stating, it's kind of like a side point. Out of all 2 motion control games available on the market for basketball, K sports 2 is the best.

As for you not knowing the people were clamouring for a motion control fake jumpshot game, I have been wanting one since I was in high school 15 years ago.

I live in Canada on a farm....getting somewhere when I was a kid to play basketball was difficult to say the least, let alone 6 months of the year it's either cold or snowing.

I wish motion games were around when I was younger. Would have been nice to play something inside where it's was warm then to have to walk down to the pond, shovel off the snow and play hockey by myself all the time.

'How many games is it up against to win such a title?'

Both the last two NBA 2Ks were Move compatable. And as for people clamouring for it, who are you to say they are not.

It's just a fun alternative to playing with the controller. The world wasnt 'clamouring' for a 'fake bowling' game when Wii Sports came out either..but you didn't see people whine that they could play the 'real thing instead'.

I own all the motion control systems and at the end of the day it may not be for everyone but millions actually do.

Yeah, really not sure what to expect from it.

I have yet to play a game that's "better with kinect" but i wouldn't be so quick to discredit this game as it is currently the "standard" of basketball games. I doubt 2k games would "dumb down" their game for use with kinect...

if anything they could very well raise the bar for games claiming to be "better with..." one thing i could think of to make it "better" is voice selection. Actually calling out "time out", making substitutions, plays, etc. without having to go through the menu which keeps getting bigger and bigger each year...

i won't run out and get this one the 1st day but i will wait and see how much "better" it actually is.

Try Mass Effect 3, Skyrim or Forza 4 with Kinect. I especially enjoyed Skyrim, makes it so much easier to use inventory. The Forza 4 head tracking and Auto-Vista with Kinect were pretty solid as well.

Actually looking forward to the call-outs with Madden 13 with Kinect.

It could be for side games like Free Throws...but not entirely sure how they would get it to work.

Looks like marketing to me.
