fun game and will like it was alot better than i thought you can use every on in the nba back Last year, two of the biggest complaints were the cheap defensive AI and the alien looking players. NBA 2K12 improves on both counts, but it's not perfect. The defense never lets up and will take advantage on every play if you let them. They still occasionally become psychic (my favorite was Dallas Mavericks center Brendan Haywood executing a perfect backhanded block without ever turning around to see me coming in for the layup), but it's rarer. The fact is that you're given so much more control of your footwork and shots, that it's up to you to get around the defense, because the game won't do it for you anymore. Choosing which hand to shoot the layup from or which way to fake before a jump shot makes or breaks every point in the game, and NBA 2K12 give you full control. It takes a little while to get fully accustomed to, but the amount of control you have is incredible.
As for the players, many of them look better. Kobe Bryant got a noticeable improvement. There are still alien looking players on every team, and each time the game cuts to them it is a bit jarring. Everything else about the game looks so amazing, that it really stands out. People would watch me play and comment on how fantastic the game looks, and then boom, Jarret Jack comes on screen looking like he got stung by bees in his face or Steve Nash shows his hideous mug.
This is the best basketball game ever. You really don't need to buy a new version every year. What these developers got to start doing is charge the gamers according to their wishes. If you want to buy the new version every year, well great make the new version for them. If you want to keep what you already have and think it won't get better,well fine, charge the gamers for the roster update. You keep everybody happy. I find that the the CEO of these companies don't have a clue as to what their customers need and wish. I bought the XBOX360 version and the PC version. It is too bad the PC version online play is so terrible. The lag and connectivity issue is really bad. But the game itself is better than the Xbox360. You have more control of the players on the PC version.
This game is action packed and it is just awesome. Up until last week I was still playing NBA 2K11. No other sports game has lasted me as long, and I was contemplating skipping this year's version because, hey, 2K11 is still fun and I like to take breaks between my sports games. That would have been a colossally stupid move. NBA 2K12 takes everything I love about last year and makes it better. Then it takes nearly all the parts I didn't like and turns them awesome. Hey, other sports games, you just got schooled. Again.
Game is excellent! If your looking for the supreme NBA experience, you have to look no further because this game is the game to own. NBA 2K12 is the basketball to play, lockout or no lockout!
Very nice graphics, especially the top players of the organization. You have to update the game to make sure that you have the current roster. Many of the players aren't as good as they are in real life, but somewhat close. However, there are still some glitches and some bad calls made on plays. Overall, 4/5.
