Summary: This game is the best of all NBA 2k's ever released. Every move a player does on the game can be done in real life, and nothing more. More realistic defense (not letting someone automatically lock-on just because they pressed the button), true to life homecourt advantages and momentum shifts, beautiful, cinematic presentation, and an accurate and funny cast of announcers, makes this 2k the best ever made. That being said, this is also the cheatin-est game ever!
NBA 2k12 Review -- Once Again Another Complete Basketball Sim

Summary: 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.
Summary: So yeah I installed and played great game when playing was really enjoying it but now its been 2 days since I installed and the game is already giving me read errors when trying to load my game..... wow awesome i can still play police quest from the 90s on my computer but not this game!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Bring Back Sierra!
Summary: Ordered this game to test out my new Dell Alienware X51, and it is a very fun sports title. Smooth game play on the Alienware, especially when using a Microsoft Xbox controller. Nothing earth shattering about this game, but its just fun if you are an NBA fan.
Summary: 2k has push all competitors out of the market, and its starting to show that they have no competition. The game still makes advances in physics and graphics, but almost predictably they are falling backwards in the user interface department. Stupid bugs in the association mode from last year's release are still intact. You still cannot look at new assistant coaches without firing your current one.
Summary: What a great game! This is the most fun and the most realistic basketball game I have ever played. The animations are very fluid and lifelike. Running the game on SLI GTX 460's and the graphics looks amazing!
Summary: A lot of folks are saying this game is broken and never receives any official patches. These people clearly dont know how to use the internet at all. When I started playing this game (and yes I pirated it at first) I saw many of the issues these people pointed out. However after simply googling said issues I came upon www.nba-2k.com which is a fan-site with many UNOFFICIAL roster, physics, glitches and bug patches as well as offical patches.
