Not sure if this qualifies for this thread, but I think it would be a good place to share how it's being received by sites like IGN.

IGN actually gave it a fair shake, and scored it a 7.9. Shocked.

This is mostly for all of us to post our opinions, but it's certainly relevant to bring up. I'm glad publications are giving it a fair chance and acknowledging the improvements that have been made. While the criticism in the past hasn't been unwarranted, it's often felt like some sites have taken delight in gleefully bashing the game beyond simply offering an honest critique.

I think this is a good indication of where the status of Live is at. People (mostly long time 2k players) who are very open to Live due to VC/2k burnout, Live's reputation online, or whatever the case may be

Man... I just played a full game on Live 19 (will be posting the highlights soon) and it's unreal how much the pick n roll defense has improved.

As stated prior, it wasn't completely dominant before, but it was something that we could go to more than we should be able to.. but now it's really hard to run them, the defenders react much better to it,and you have to time everything almost perfect.

Seriously just had a blast in my last game, the gameplay is really solid this year.

Nooooo that was my go-to move when I couldn't score lol

If I get desperate I might have to do hand-off cheese


It might not be much but the AI decision making still continues to impress me over last year's AI
My teammates are less incompetent. Paul George is always looking to score and is very aggressive on offense in The Streets and court battles. I played 3 on 3 last night and had both teammates quit (one immediately after the jump) and the CPU actually ran the court on fast breaks for easy layups. Sometimes they ignore my commands and wind up doing something better and I am thankful that they ignored me. I wound up coming back and winning which was probably embarrassing for the other team but it wouldn't have happened had I still had my dumbass human teammates. I don't know how much live run/live events I can do this year with the amount of bad players online

Haha, when you see the video I post, you will see how much I had to mix things up.

I love how the tip goes to random people. Also last night I saw something new where shaq tipped back to my PG but he hit it so hard it went over my head and I had to go back and get it.

Also I saw once a cool jump ball scenario off of a double team late in a street game.

That's definitely cool. 2K's had the loose ball on the tip for a while now, glad to see it in Live as well. It just adds that extra touch of realism and sense of the gameplay being organic.

Played a game against the Wizards (Which ill post a video of later) and one detail really stuck out.

Every time John Wall had a favorable matchup, he attacked. For example, if it was a switch on Towns or Gibson (I was using the Wolves) he would ISO and try to take me. And, I love how authentic the players play overall, as Bradley Beal was running off screens and trying to catch and shoot, and Wall was attacking the rim relentlessly.

Haven't played the NBA games yet but I've noticed PG and LeBron really dominate the ball on my streets team and played against Gerald green who literally jacked up a 3 every time he touched the ball lol.

Also cpu makes defensive adjustments. They will double you if you score a ton like last year but this year I even saw a defensive assignment switch to deal with LeBron
