Tis the link for 2002UM on XBL English Marketplace.

Enjoy:) I get kicked off live when I try to play, but other than that, it's working perfectly fine. So no netcode impressions yet...

I came to this board a bit earlier to post this, myself, but you beat me to it.

Good News: It counts towards the 2400 Point/800 Point Rebate
Bad News: Netcode probably won't be up till the Official Release Date, next Wednesday.

Wait a minute, why does it say the game was released on 9/15/2010? Or am I missing something here? Also, is it really the entire game?

I thought this game (2k2UM) was supposed to be released on the 3rd of November... I'm currently downloading the game to my x360 right now and its the 29th of October... Sneak attack???

Ok, it disconnects from xbl when you try to play the game though...

It's a very good port, I don't see any trouble or stupid bugs so far

The graphics are very good, they look way better than 98 um

And the controls feel good at first, not like NGBC which took some time to me to get used

so far so great. It helps that i played the arcade version a week ago and i was instantly comfortable with doing commands and whatnot. the translations for the challenge mode stuff is fairly decent but it controls great and it looks good enough on my widescreen tv.

I did the 30 normal challenge in one days, fun stuff, now, the expert challenges, those are ridiculous

Specially that one to beat 6 random characters with 6 random guys andbeat geese and goenitz while the timer is on some multiple of 3

btw, if I fail 300 expert challenges Nightmare Geese will unlock right?

Like what? you need to be a little more specific

You fail the Expert Challenges 300 times then you unlock absolutely everything, this includes Nightmare Geese

BC mode is officially called MAX mode you know..

Anyway, 2k2UM requires use of MAX mode a little less since you can do SDM's outside of MAX mode. Really, first learn the game, only then start worrying about comboing into max mode. It's generally not considered worth it to go into MAX mode without comboing into it.

But if you insist t try some stuff, you can try like:

Kusanagi: df+D hcb+BC (that activates BC and does hcb+B) cancel into qcf+K,K > qcb,hcf+P. Only works in the corner, but it's a nice hitconfirm of a really quick low normal into good damage.

K': cr.BB then "plink" cr.C~BC (this'll activate BC and immediately give you a crouch C) > 2xqcf+P. Good hitconfirmable damage of a low normal into good damage midscreen.

I don't ever see these BC combos in actual play, but they're easy to do so nice to get a feel of them.

Another bit more common combo as a punish with whip:
cr.C BC cr.C > SDM. Though really in 2k2UM you can just go from cr.C > SDM (wasn't possible in Vanilla 2k2).

A lot of 'real' BC combos though, need you do a close C BC cancel, run in and do another close C. Those are pretty hard to execute, don't worry about them if you're just getting into kof2k2.
