graphics comparison NBA 2k9 2k10 & 2k11

Postby wicked waway on Sat Oct 16, 2010 12:08 pm

Just played 2k9 and 2k10 to compare and TBH, both games had better graphics (shaders?) over 2k11 :( but 2k11 makes up for it with superior gameplay and presentation. What are your thoughts on the graphics of these games? which is best?

2k9 (granted there may have been a court mod on the celtics floor, but nevertheless, the shading/reflections on the court and on the jersey is better)

2k10 (best environment lighting for me IMO but the camera sucks as its too far for my taste)

2k11 (seems like its missing a shader or something)

Jeez, I forgot how cramped the court was before 2K10. One of the best changes to the series and basketball games as a whole really.

I saw and understood your original questions, I ignored them to comment on what I wanted to. Other than the size relations and 2K11's well known PC-only issue they look pretty much the same to me.

2k9 has the best graphics for me, 2k should have used them plus the gameplay of 2k11.. it should be perfect.

2k9's crispness plus 2k10's environment lighting would have been a perfect combination for NBA 2k11, luckily it makes up more its gameplay that the inferior graphics can be overlooked

Man, this Explains A LOT, haha. Thankyou for making this thread, wicked waway.

To be honest, I've never fired up my NBA2K10 again after obtaining NBA2K11, but I could've sworn I thought my NBA2K11 Graphics was Broken! I even made couple Threads about it on NBA 2K Forums complaining that my PC Version got a bug in Player Detail Video Settings! dammm..

I've already posted this on [PC] NBA 2K11 Bug reports & glitches Thread, but I thought I'd post them here as well.

This is regarding the 2 Bugs I've encountered (Video Setting (Player Details) Problem & Replay Stuttering) after the first day. Here it goes:

I downloaded mine off Steam yesterday. I was so happy and excited with the new moves, realistic lanes interception, and everything at the beginning; until I realized on that night that all the Player Details which I've set on my Video Settings to High, appear to be Medium regardless of whether it was set to High/Medium in the Option. During a game, I see no Sweats, no Muscle Tones, and almost no difference between a 70kg & a 120kg guy. I guess I'd refer to this problem as Video Setting (Player Details) Problem. What's weird is on both Replay Mode & Action Replays (after a Dunk) I'm seeing all the sweats and the High Detail that it should've been, just not during my actual game. I've taken some Pictures using Fraps as shown below.
I'm amazed nobody has mentioned this, because this is big to me. Are you guys not getting this Bug at all?

Picture1: Replay Mode on High Player Video Setting
Image

Picture2: Actual Gameplay on High Player Video Setting
Image





Picture3: Game Play on Low Player Video Setting
Image

Picture4: Game Play on Medium Player Video Setting
Image

Picture5: Game Play on High Player Video Setting
Image


As you can see, the Difference between Picture1 (Replay Mode on High Player Video Setting) & Picture2 (Actual Gameplay on High Player Video Setting) is staggering, even on the same Video Setting.
And there's No Difference between Picture4 (Game Play on Medium Player Video Setting) & Picture5 (Game Play on High Player Video Setting), which are supposibly different Player Detail Settings.
Is there really nobody on PC who are getting the same problem as me?
...

I'm running on an i5, ATI HD5800, with 4GB RAM. I ran the Performance Benchmark with everything on high and got an FPS of 134.

I knew there was something wrong with it, haha. Glad I'm not alone :lol:

I still believe the courts are too small even in 2k14
