A Peek At NBA 2K11's Half-Time Show

Operation Sports rolled out a six-minute video showing the second quarter of a Sixers-Knicks match-up. Gameplay galore, but the new news is the half-time show, confirmed last week, which you can get a whiff of at the 5:00 mark.

The voice is of San Francisco's KNBR-AM's Damon Bruce, who once awarded me tickets to a San Jose Sabercats game for a particularly insightful call into his evening radio program back in 2006. Being that it was the Sabes, I didn't stay on the line to give the producer my info. Anyway, where was I? Bruce glides through the action, calling out top scorers and the first half context.

This isn't the full half-time show as it's not from the NBA Today mode, which like its MLB Today cousin in MLB 2K10, matches up the real life participants of the day once the season gets going. We'll see more of NBA Today in the coming week.

    Looks great.

    But it seems to me 2K over the last two iterations of the franchise have been more concerned with making these games better to watch than they are to play.

    2K10 still stands as the most woefully glitch ridden and gameplay back-step NBA2K game in years, and is one of the most frustrating games ever to play, period- and most of the frustrations come from trying to fix what wasn't broken in 2K8 and 2K9.

    I'd much rather a game that plays better than 2K10 instead of one that looks better.
