The graphics don't bother me at all, (even though I have heard complaints that after the top three or four guys on each team the rest of the guys look the same in 08, and the all-male audience in 08 looks so convincing), the COOP play is a MUST for some on the 2K series as EA took it out in 2004 and have not put it back in since.

09 better than 2k9? Doubt it, but I am weird that way, I have problems with a Hockey game where you can leave the puck on your defenseman's stick, set down the controller, go make a sandwich or 3, and come back and your defenseman is still holding the puck the opposing team does nothing to stop him or take the puck.
