Rated 2 out of 10 by JosephE 2K12 shows little improvement
2K11 was ok compared to the XBOX version last year. But this year, they just blew off the Wii version. XBOX has a completely addicting My Player mode, and the game is much better than I ever expected for 2K. Then we have the Wii.Almost no improvements from last year are that enhancing, and the worst part: No roster updates. They had them last year, so you would absolutely expect for them to be in 2K12. due to the lockout, causing the user to manually update rosters, and create the rookies if they actually want it to be realistic. Bottom Line: They don't seem to be showing much interest in making the Wii version any better, so I'm just gonna buy an XBOX. I recommend that if you're buying this, be prepared to deal with unrealistic rosters and no rookies.

I purchased the game yesterday. Nowhere in the previews I read did it say that we wouldn't get the updated My Player mode that PS3 and Xbox 360 got. However, when I started playing the game, I noticed that not only was the My Player mode the EXACT same as last year, but they had eliminated online play/roster updates entirely. I wouldn't have purchased the game if I'd have known it was missing these features.
Basically what Wii owners got is the same game we got last year, with a roster from June 2011, some old school teams, and no online features.
I just wanted to put this out there so that people that were expecting certain features wouldn't be disappointed.
Rated 4 out of 10 by bestgamer2014 Get this game if are addicted to NBA
This game is alright. Get 2K13 instead. But it has better camera angles. It has bottom line stupid graphics. Don't waste 20 dollars on this game unless you just want to spend it on... Hit that thumbs up button if you liked this review.

I really hope the Wii does a better job creating 2k12 than 2k11. Don't get me wrong I love 2k11 for the Wii but playing the PS3 version as well gives you a sense of how much better it could have been. It is stupid to expect the Wii version to remain at par or even close to the level of the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions, but it doesn't mean the Wii can't be like those versions. I wish the Wii would create the game with the same features, game modes, and customization as the PS3 and Xbox 360. Is that too much to ask for? Unfortunatel probably. The graphics will be far inferior than the 360 and PS3 as always but I'm still looking for major improvements in facial, body, crowd, etc. graphics. The only reason I keep comparing the Wii to the 360 and PS3 is because the Wii could make a game like this as good as the others (Feature wise) but they never seem to put enough effort into it. And I'm ultimatley saying that I hope the Wii put the effort into a highly improved game this year. I left out other improvements I would like to see, to name one I would like to see you be able to own cars, a house, have a family, go out to events with your team, and overall just be able to live the life off the court as well as on the court but those are things that I would save for recommendations for the 360 and PS3 considering the Wii would probably never go that far into features with an NBA 2k game.
Rated 3 out of 10 by TDude519 2k11 is better than 2k12 if u own a wii
all the reviews saying 2k12 is better than 2k11 are meant for the 360 and ps3. if ur buying this for the wii, don't buy it. the only thing 2ksports spent time on changing on the wii was the menu design which is worst than 2k10 and 2k11, the soundtrack which is shorter than 2k11, and got rid of the jordan challenges and creating a legend. the only thing they add was NBA Greatest. Even My Player is not better. on 360 and ps3, u play one game before u get drafted, on wii ju still hav to play 3 games. the only reason u should get this game is only u don't own 2k11
Rated 8 out of 10 by sanoftsger24 good but.........

Rated 10 out of 10 by gamertripp Best game play ever!
This game is the game to buy. The graphics are not so good but the game play is great. It even has a mode where you can create yourself and do a scouting combine and get drafted by a team. It is the coolest mode yet. When you create your character you can customize your shoes. They have Nike, Adidas,converse and even Reebok. Buy the game it is the best. You can even play with Jordan. If you are getting the game go to extras on the menu then codes and then type the number two then kchina to get a china team
Rated 5 out of 10 by rokitdece graphics suck! get 2K11!
ok. first off, they're graphics suck on wii! only 2K11 has better graphics. and, the songs are shorter!(but better). never get 2K12. to all b-ball gamers, this isn't right 4 u. get it on the 360 and ps3! way better graphics-xbox has more graphics cuz 1080p on the console HD and 2k already made the graphics good-this is just a few bad stuff they hav 4 2K12! comment 2 learn more about 2K12-and get it 4 360-its a helpful tip~i know. o yea and it doesn't get addictive
Rated 8 out of 10 by anonymouscasualgamer Good game for most, i love it!
For those who have a PS3 and/or XBOX 360, get this game, but for either of those 2 systems. If you dont have either of those 2 systems, get this game. You get graphic that are close to ps3/360, the controls just take a bit to get used to. If you get/have the Wii classic controller, im told its easier. Its not too hard with the wii remote and nunchuck, you just need to play and get used to it. Be patient, you will get to love this game.
Rated 5 out of 10 by shukla23 It's okay
I think that this game is perfect for anyone who doesn't have NBA 2k11 on their Wii. The game is good and fun to play with and not that bad. But if you have 2k11 and think this will be an upgrade as i did it's not. I am going to return it and just keep on playing 2k11 because it is the same thing. Now if you don't have 2k11 i think that this game would be perfect for you.
