When NBA 2K11 released back in October, it was hailed as quite possibly the greatest sports game to date by myself and others. The game was not without a few issues, but on the whole it delivered the most authentic and enjoyable experience I have ever gotten from a sports game. I definitely expected 2K Sports to eventually put out a patch to address those things but I never expected them to put out a patch as drastic and devastating as patch 1.2 that came out right before Thanksgiving. This patch not only fixed the minor things, it has dramatically altered several core gameplay mechanics and not for the better. Nowhere are the negatives effects more obvious than in my favorite game mode in this year’s game “My Player”.
