MJ is cover again, Magic, Bird are limited edition
Michael Jordan is the cover athlete, but 2K is making two limited edition covers, featuring Magic Johnson and Larry Bird.
Anyways, I think one thing 2K should do is bolster My Player. They should make it more realistic, but I think above all else, start you out with a higher rating, because a rating around 40 is too hard for some people like myself, and for others as well. But I don't think it should be really easy, they should make obtaining skill points harder though to even it out. Also, franchise should be harder, because in 2k11, in a fantasy draft franchise, I made it to the finals the first season, lost in 6 games, and then swept after about 1 trade and 1 free agent signing. The trades you get spammed with throughout the year are also very annoying. Those are my opinions though, hope this year is as good as 2k11!
NBA 2k12 is "Where Amazing Happens."
NBA 2k12 is Amazing for BOTH Xbox 360 & PS3. I myself, bought it for PS3! I give this game a 10! Oh and I got drafted into the Knicks! Great starting team. This is a must-have game. Check it out!
im just speachless for this game no words to say real excited for this game i will be gettting a midnight realese for this game if you want to play me add on psn youngsuavekidd.
its a great game it has great graphics great sound and great gameplay but NBA Today updates EVERYTHING if you lets say put LeBron on Cleavland when you take out the disc or quit the game and then you go back and play it LeBron will be back on Miami same thing with overall ratings for players, Otherwise its a great game.
Actually tried the demo and I just WASN'T impressed. This is simply another 2k11/10 - with some REALLY GOOD cover art (I have to admit). *But then again, the last one had really good cover art too*... Uh ... Yeah. Anyways, I think I'll wait on this one to drop in price. That way when I experience those same disappointing areas that the 2k Designers ALWAYS overlook (Blake Griffin NOT catching ally oops in Association mode. Or the players not doing the COMMON SENSE things like CUTTING to the basket, or choosing a short jumper over a WIDE OPEN LAYUP. OR - AND I LOVE THIS ONE - 3 DIFFERENT PLAYERS DOING THE SAME REVERSE LAYUP THREE TIMES DOWN THE FLOOR...) I wont feel like my money was wasted. *Lesson Learned 2K* Not this time! Not to mention, you wait ONE MORE MONTH, Saints3 is out and Uncharted 3 as well... MONEY NOT WELL SPENT - BUT BETTER SPENT.. I started 2K back when the 2K2 edition rolled out and was just DRAWN IN - after 2K9 - the series just started going downhill. Like I said, it'll be on sale soon enough.. I'm patient.
best nba game ever made
i loved this game, i always hated 2k games,i always got the nba live games because they were so much fun to play and when i heard that there were not going to make more nba live games i was shocked i didn't know what to do so i went and bouht nba 2k11 for the psp, i mean it was really bad the graphics were bad the gameplay was bad, and to make it worse, they took out nba blacktop mode the only fun thing in the game and replace it with street mode that doesn't even have dunk competition or three point that was the only fun thing to play i have nba 2k8 and i always play nba blacktop mode but this year they made the game awesome the only thing missing is nba blacktop if they put nba blacktop they will make it much better but the game is pretty good the graphics the gameplay the sound and the lasting appeal you never get bored and they improved my player it is so fun so with all being said i think this game deserves a solid 10 and i can't wait to try nba's greatest moments mode
i think this year on 2k12 you guys should really improve on the my player game mode. i loved it last year but you should make it more realistic. like maybe let the player have a life off the court and let him buy cars and houses and also get married and things along that situation. and i loved the way on my player in 2k11 that you could sit in the press confrence room and carry conversations. but maybe you should add more then jus those same questions. Also this year you should finally add All-Star Weekend. Around wher im from guys are always sayin how you should add this feature. i would love to see that on this years game. also you should kind of do sort of how madden does and like at the screen where you pick teams you should list like the key players on the team and what they are good at doing. And also add some better Tattoos. You should have the some of the same tattoo's that the real nba players have on the game so you can put them on the created players. and also i really liked the new feature of adding celerbrities every year keep it coming. and lots of better music i want to hear some Lil Wayne Some ace hood some dj khaled or something. and when the players are entering make that more realistic as well and aslo at halftime have like players talking to the sideline reporters
NBA 2k12 meltdown
NBA 2k12 is a big disappointment from last years game.
More teams are better this year then in 2k11
1 )While dribbling the ball if there is any contact you will lose the rock.
2) Passes seem to get intercepted all the time.
3) While in the post going up for a layup or dunk you will get mugged but no foul will be called.
4) The star players cannot miss a shot.
5) When you put the double team on the player still makes that shot most of the time.
6) The defense is pathetic, none at all.
7) 2k12 seems like NBA live 10
8) I cannot understand how anyone is rating this game 10 or 9 unless they came from NBA live.
9) There is no strategy in this game because most of the shots go in like an arcade game AKA NBA live.
10) Save your $$$$ don't buy this game.
11) Hopefully they can fix these issues with an update.
12) 2K11 had a much better intense game play.
13) Getting started online is a nightmare
14) While pushing the rock up the court fast the ball will come out of your hands.
15) 2k please rectify these problems ASAP or refund our $$$$.
Here we go.
NBA 2K12, one of the most realistic, entertaining, and fun sports games ever. With the NBA Greatest mode, you can step into the shoes of the NBA's truly greatest players, such as Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, and more. And of course, you can still play with today's future Hall of Famers, such as Kobe Bryant and LeBron James. One thing that I find very easy to do in this game is getting steals. Once you get steals, you go straight down the other end of the court for easy fast break in-transition baskets. This is very easy, and very fun. The imagery is superb, and is one of the most realistic basketball games ever created. NBA 2K12 is a must own for sports fans and gamers alike.
Good but not Great
This is Not one of the best games 2k has released. The gameplay is riddled with open 3s and you will hardly be able to score in the paint. The hyped up my player mode is in need of major patching. The cpu trade logic is terrible and Hall of Fame is almost unplayable. It seems like they didn't extensively test this game mode at all. Offline Association suffers from the same horrible trade logic as My Player mode. At first online association was unplayable due to being able to shoot open 3s with ANYBODY, The horrible lag and the glitches. The legends mode is nothing spectacular but will give you a few hours of fun.The graphics are a step back from 2k11 because of the disturbing player models. This game has the best presentation of any 2K NBA game EVER. I would not purchase this game until they come out with a major patch
