Story Mode Is Frustrating
 
First of all this game has probably about twice as many controls as the average first person shooter. And this game is made by Midway, the same guys who made a few almost impossible achievements for NFL Blitz the League.

This game got hard all of a sudden in the second section when they tell you you're down by 22, and you have 4 minutes to come back. I have tried this like 12-15 times now, and I actually lost by 1 once and 2 once, but I still didn't get past it. And there are 6 sections to the game- I got totally annoyed and frustrated with this game on section 2!

Now I realize there are nerds on this site who are not going to get stuck there. But I'm a pretty serious gamer, who takes pride in my skills, and I'm sorry I started playing this game. Because it's fun enough where I want to play, but all it's doing is frustrating me.

My created character is a dunks/blocks type player, because that has always been my style in NBA Jam and NBA Street, so maybe story mode is easier as a steals/3 point shooter type player. I don't know. I was doing fine until the 22 point challenge.

EDIT: Think it's an easy 1000? So far the world leaderboard says 1st place) 740pts, 5th) 500pts, 10th) only 335, and 20th) only 255.

Well im on the 4. episode, i beat the one your having problems with on my 3. try.. You got to use the LB+X on the players and score right after, that gets you 4 points. Try to steal the ball from behind so you get a foul, but the player will most likely drop the ball, they only get a freethrow every 5. foul. Just keep trying and you will get there.

Im having trouble on the 4. episode on the 4. chapter, i have to make 5 superdunks, how??

me too, i dont know how to execute it. i'm at the fourth section (first chapter)
thx for all ;)

DarkHitman 47 04-22-2008 03:42 PM

i agree i thought it would be really easy like homecourt shame theres no dificulty option

PTPetisco 04-22-2008 03:46 PM

Need now Super Juke... Dawn names, and there's not trick list... Only for the special ones...

asmithz 04-22-2008 03:48 PM

I suggest going to the other missions and beating them first to raise your stats, then go back to the mission where you are 22 down and it should be easier.

PTPetisco 04-22-2008 04:01 PM

Ok- Got the Super Juke: Just need to perfomance a dribble with level 2 Super. (RT+LT+X).

WE could buld a move list, it will help to complete the campaign.

how did you do to execute the "off the head" trick plz ?

PTPetisco 04-22-2008 04:50 PM

I'm in that too. Guess you need to do RT+Y to bump the ball in the head, and in air grab it to do a ally hoop.

master pes 4 04-22-2008 04:58 PM

The best tip for the story mode is when you have the ball do the LB+X thing and score, you'll then have a super move. Next when your opponent comes at you with the ball hold LT+RT and press X and you will steal the ball everytime. Do the LB+X again and keep going till you win. Hope this helps :)

i just hate the no check ball matchs. lol

I have done it on the 3rd try, but by pure luck. I was still trailing by 20 and then made a super dunk (that RT + LT + B in special circle) and ... match won somehow :)) I don't know whether this was a bug or it is a legit way to finish that episode. Try if you want.

PTPetisco 04-22-2008 08:00 PM

Is a ligit way. You simple win with a Shut up a mouth move. Like activate the Super Dunk in the circle, when you got the level 3 super move.

I'm frustrated in final level of the fourth chapter. Need to do a off the face and a level 3 move, and have not time to do it. The guy is annoying.

Mustkill9 04-22-2008 08:20 PM

I knew people would be past where I was, and not one person made a disrespectful answer. I'm impressed.

PTPetisco 04-22-2008 09:23 PM

Finally finished Episode 4. Last Chapter is a pain in the ass :)

Here some tips :)

First game: Dificult and need some practice. Need to perfome a Off-The-Head, then a 3+ move Combo and Dunk. Try first the off the head, just run a bit, foward, and than use RT+LT+Y, so the ball bounces in the adversary head, quickly continue to run and press Y, so you in the same move do a hooly Hoop. Than, just kee doing good till level 3, activate combo, and than Dunk. Time limited is 3 minutes, so need to do actions quickly.

Second game: Easy one. Need to do crowd Hooly Hoop. Just pass the ball to the public, and tuning to the net press X. The ball returns in the air, and we do a hooly hoop.

Third Game: Easy - Need to perfomance 4 Super moves:
2 Super Blocks (level 2 power, than RT+LT+Y (under the net) when adversary trys to dunk.
2 Super Steals (level 2 power, than RT+LT+B)

Fourth Game: Easy one too - Need to perfomance Every Super Move:

1 super block Shot – Super Lvl 2 RT+LT+Y (under the net)
1 super steal - Super Lvl 2 RT+LT+B (without ball)
1 super Juke - Super Lvl 2 RT+LT+X
1 super Shot - Super Lvl 2 RT+LT+B
1 super dunk - Super Lvl 3 RT+LT+B (in the yellow circle with ball)

Hope It can help, as it was very difficult to me to discover! ;)

Now gonna do last chapter... :)

PTPetisco 04-22-2008 10:41 PM

Chapter 4 from Episode 6 is just frustrating... 4 or 5 opponents, with dificult matchs. The third match you need to win by not let the opponent score. We are talking about 2 minutes. We need to be very fast building up Super, and steel every ball. If he scores one single point, lose credit. And then, just star all over again, with 2 matchs before this encounter... This is stupid...

Mustkill9 04-22-2008 11:15 PM

I have a good question. When we create our baller, what attributes should we spend our points on, and are there any that we can just ignore? I originally didn't give my man a good steal rating, and it looks like I should have.

Segnius 04-22-2008 11:59 PM

You'll have to excuse my ignorance since I don't have the game yet, but is the story mode nothing but a bunch of challenges where you have to win a certain way? You can't just beat them whatever way you wish and then move on?

Challenges you can't beat whatever way you want.

You hold RT and hit x for the off the head move

asmithz 04-23-2008 05:41 AM

AGHHHH!!!! I hate when you are playing against 5 people 3 tries. You get to last guy with no more continues and you lose. Such a waste of time, and so so frustrating.

thx for your help but i try do execute these stricks but it doesn't work. i push lt+lr+circle buttons at level 2 but nothing happens. is there any gonnd advice to complete it ?

master pes 4 04-23-2008 11:08 AM

You dont need 2 supers to do most of the moves, you just need one. As for the one in Episode 6, its very difficult to beat the guy without him scoring but all you have to do is score 3 times after you do the LB+X. Heres how.

You start with the ball, go to the free throw line and hold LB+X, follow the buttons and the score straight away. This will give you 4 points and also a super thing. Now your opponent starts with the ball and you hold LT+RT and press B to steal the ball. Now just do what you first did twice more and your golden ;)

I'll try that just now. Thanks for the advice... :)

I don't have the game yet, but from what I'm reading here it doesn't seem to be an easy 1000. Can anyone comment please?
