No lie, I had an uncomfortable time playing the demo. Defense was somewhat unresponsive and offense wasn't any better. I remember running a clear 1-man fastbreak with Durant, seconds before he airballed the lay-up. Gameplay really wasn't fluid at all. Passing animations weren't realistic. Screens did not have any effect when set. Post-ups felt like I was playing NBA Hangtime and dribbling was beyond glitchy. The only thing I enjoyed was the presentation of the arena, halftime report and player introduction. I truly don't see much replay value with this one.
Now, I realize this is just a demo and "most" of it will be patched but c'mon EA Sports. Buyers will base their decision on this demo. Why put out a demo 2 weeks prior to release date and lose a chunk of their fanbase over "funny faces" and lousy gameplay? More power to you if you're buying this game after what you've seen. Might be more loyal than Vanessa Bryant.
