Visual Concepts vs EA Sports
The NBA 2K series, developed by Visual Concepts, is hugely popular amongst players of sport simulations due to realistic gameplay and complex AI choices by the opposition. It has always competed strongly with EA’s NBA series of games, and has an equally large player-pool; similarly to the FIFA/PES debate, there have always been arguments on which series is the most realistic, which offers better AI and better gameplay.
Playing NBA 2K, particularly its latest incarnations, is most certainly a different experience than playing the games by EA sports; for one, it is much more difficult to score even at medium levels. Another difficult aspect comes in the form of AI-choices, meaning that the computer opposition is much more responsive and makes better decisions; you’ll see better use of court-traps, double-teams and rotations and the PG’s do not dominate like in the NBA series.
Because of all that you might decide that cheating is a better option for beating the game, instead of wasting time in trying to learn how to play it. Keep reading for NBA 2K10 cheats, unlockables and a megatrainer to give you that open-look!

Who Needs A Coach – Mega-Trainer
The Cheathappens.com mega-trainer is freely available for everyone and, as always, the coders have allowed for a variety of options in which aspects you can modify. This is done by launching the trainer and using the NUMPAD keys, as with all of the mega-trainers; the zipped file also includes instructions in case you have further problems.
Choose which version to download, depending on the patch you have applied to your game. Cheats include:
Numpad 1 – Increase your score by one. You may not notice the score changing as soon as you press it and of course you can press multiple times for an ample lead.
Numpad 3 – Increase your hard-cap so you can trade for better players or all-stars.
Numpad 6 – Freeze the shot-clock during gameplay, so that no shot-clock violation is possible and your offence can go on for as long as you want.
Numpad 7 - End the current quarter.
Numpad 8 – You get 99999 skill points ready for use
