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

Controls remain too complicated to average and less skilled players and a little too slippery overall. Games, even with replays turned off, still take too long to play. Trade AI borders between overactive and out of control. Player shouldn't have to...

NBA 2K12


While over the years we've let our real-world basketball skills fade, as demonstrated in a 3-point shootout at a theme park recently – 12 air balls in a row, thanks – the NBA 2K franchise has continued to go from strength to strength with each annual...

NBA 2K12 is yet another great addition to the NBA 2K franchise, building upon the strengths of 2K11 with some worthy gameplay enhancements, Online isn't quite up to scratch, but My Player, NBA: Creating a Legend and Dynasty mode are all superb and will...

NBA 2K12 Review (Xbox 360)


It won't be easy, but the extreme attention to detail given to the game makes it possible

is mostly smooth and fun, with everything from shooting to defending rather easy to pick up after practicing, but there are some problems. The AI will often take completely unnecessary shots or pass to heavily covered targets, causing frustrating...

NBA 2K12 Review


The reality of not having a full basketball season is slowly setting in this year. Owners and players just can't get over their egos in an attempt to see eye-to-eye, and as a result, fans will be left turning to other means of entertainment while this...

Some player design weirdness exists here and there, but overall the models are lifelike, and transition up and down the court like pros, even with the minor brush-off animations after they score. The courts themselves are marvelous, with plenty of...

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


Never has it been more important for fans to be given a top-notch virtual version of the game of NBA basketball. With labor talks dragging on and the 2011-2012 season in doubt (not to mention cut short already, at the very least), NBA fans are waiting...

NBA 2K11, last year's iteration of the series, was simply a fantastic basketball game. In fact, in the Game-Over review (, I said it was the best sports game I had ever played. This was high...
