NBA 2K12 review

GamesRadar
27 June 2012
  • Excerpt: Magic Johnson is standing at center court, hands extended in disbelief. This can’t be happening , he seems to think. Despite - or perhaps because of – his superhuman efforts, the 1991 Lakers have just lost for the fourth time in a row to their counterparts from Portland. As he trudges off the court, he looks around, almost as if this is all just a bad dream. Naturally, it is.
  • Pros: Beautiful presentation, Incredibly polished controls, Historic teams are amazing
  • Cons: Steep learning curve, Long load times, No Charles Barkley!

NBA 2K12 Review

12 October 2011
  • Excerpt: A lockout may be on the horizon for the NBA in real life, but the virtual world of basketball is still in great shape thanks to developer Visual Concepts. The 2K franchise has reigned supreme for years now and the latest entry, NBA 2K12 , is yet another resounding success. The changes made this time around are subtle, but the result is the best basketball simulation out there. Last year’s NBA 2K11 was all about Michael Jordan and the new Jordan Challenge mode.
  • Pros: NBA's Greatest mode lets gamers play as 15 different NBA legends, Streamlined My Player mode is much more accessible, Presentation faithfully recreates real life broadcasts
  • Cons: Very similar to last year's entry

  • Conclusion: NBA 2K12 isn't hugely different from last year's version, but enough additions have been included to make it exciting for fans hungering for some hardwood hoops. More vintage players, small gameplay tweaks, and the same great presentation you expect make this the best NBA game around. Plus, Association mode can now be played offline and online, which gives you even more freedom in designing your dynasty.
  • Pros: Lots of vintage teams and players, My Player mode is now immediately engaging, Amazing presentation, Lifelike animation, Some gameplay tweaks bring this even closer to the real thing.
  • Cons: Occasionally cheap AI, Some out-of-place animations.
