The NBA2K10 Draft Combine was released on Xbox LIVE Arcade last week on 26 August and I gave it a shot yesterday.
It took me a while to complete my created player because there’s so much details to get into. You can skip all these customisation tools if you want but you’ll be missing out a lot and your created player will appear quite ‘generic’.
In customising your name and origin, i would like to highlight that (and I think I can say that this is a first) you can select ‘Singapore’ as your origin. I think the last time we had such options was in Dead or Alive 4 and Project Gotham Racing 4, but not in sports games. Other Asian countries you can select include ‘Malaysia’, ‘Hong Kong’ and ‘Australia’.
From then on, you can select your age (max is 29yrs) and choose your favourite jersey number, set your height and weight and appearance. You then move on to customising your facial appearance. If you can’t find what you’re looking for from the list of presets, you can custom build it using the freeform option.
The attire is another area with plenty of details. Apart from choosing the type of clothing, you can set the colours as well. From the trailer video, I heard that there’s about 300 customisation options to play around.
The only thing missing is voice, but you don’t need that in an NBA game.
I took quite some time finishing my created player because I’m a sucker for customisation options. It gets personal as any NBA match can be. For 400 MS points, this download is reasonable because it gets you on the Inside up ahead.
I’ll check out the play options another day. In the meantime, here are some other screenshots.
