NBA 2K12 Review


NBA 2k12 remains the best of its breed.

Still the best basketball game on the market. The presentation is top notch. Players look and play like themselves. The Legends teams are aces. My Player is too much fun for words. Skilled players can do some amazing moves with the control scheme

Review: NBA 2K12 Falls Short of Being The Perfect Substitute For The NBA Lockout


In a year when basketball fans need it the most, NBA 2K12 delivers a brilliant (offline) hoops experience.

I was fortunate enough (and, indeed, old enough) to see a number of the NBA's legends play in person in the '80s and '90s. Larry Bird, Magic Johnson, Dr. J, and many others passed through Salt Lake City to take on the Jazz when I was a teenager -- and...

NBA 2K12 Review


Last year's game was awesome, so does NBA 2K12 make it a dynasty? In short: yes.

No sports game has ever made me this excited to play. Seriously it's all I've been able to think about for the last week. The realistic, challenging, gorgeously animated gameplay carries across a cornucopia of modes. Playing legends of the past, the...

NBA 2K12


Maybe the only NBA we'll get this year.

As with all franchise games NBA 2K12 is going to be compared with last year’s model, and it stacks up well. Is it a must buy if you have last year’s game? Maybe not. But it’s certainly not the absolute ‘don’t get this if you have last year’s version’...

NBA 2K12- PS3


If you're a basketball fan or not, NBA 2K12 is a glorious achievement. It'll undoubtedly have the pulling power to keep players interested until the next instalment, as it's wide variety of modes and excellence on court culminates into a winning formula.
