NBA 2k12 Review (9.5 out 10 0

Let me get this out of the way so you won't dismiss this review as ignorant gushing. NBA 2K11 was the best sports game of all time. Period. End of story. With the classic teams ranging from the Seattle Sonics to the rugged Detroit Pistons, it was a real treat for both new and old NBA fans a like. Then they threw in the improved graphics engine and the few core gameplay tweaks that helped refine the experience. I honestly thought NBA 2K12 had no chance to match what NBA 2K11 accomplished, but I w...

Somewhat better than NBA 2K11 0

So far I have only played the My Player mode of the game.

The unfortunate thing is that this is truly the highlight of the game.Graphical...

Disappointment 0

I'm a big fan of basketball so by no means I'm rating this game simply because its too hard or complicated. This game isn't that what it is though is broken, unbalanced, and filled with lag. I'm surprised as to how 2ksports could fall so low. I was mixed with 2k10 the lack of defense was just atrocious and the ISO moves were sloppy. Then comes 2k11 one of the best basketball games ever made! It doesn't beat my favorite basketball game, NBA Live 2003, but it definitely comes close. So obviously I...
