Re: The Gaming Thread.

Federer's backhand is just annoying to play with I say. At least with Djokovic you're covered in all areas I suppose. Not sure about Nadal, he seems okay too all around.

Maybe it has been patched since I last played, but I found Murray horrendous to play with primarily due to the lack of power.

Re: The Gaming Thread.

His power is okay as long as you time it right. He has gone downhill since they gimped the slice which was his best shot by a mile.

The power stat is too good in this game though as it makes up for shitty groundstroke stats. Flake and Roddick just smash everything on either way cause they have high power stats.

Federer's backhand cross court defence is stupidly good and his power stat makes it decent offensively as well. His serve is massive and he can actually volley.

Re: The Gaming Thread.

Yeah that's true, but returning with the backhand is a stupid pain.

2K took the downgrading too far, especially with the serve I say.

I time the ball well (or did when I played), but it seemed like it wasn't penetrating. Maybe I was just playing with some real sharks, but I had to rely on angles to find success with him.

Re: The Gaming Thread.

They need to tone down the defence in this game. 40 shots rallies happen like twice every game and half the time being on the offensive is worse because you're surprised by the ridiculously good responses.
