Excerpt: "Kokonaisuutena NBA 2K12 on melko perinteinen vuosipäivitys, jonka uudet ominaisuudet joko riittävät tai eivät riitä oikeuttamaan sarjan viimeisimmän pallottelun ostoa. Jos pari edellistä peliä jäi välistä, voi NBA 2K12:sta suositella varsin lämpimästi, 2K 11 -pelin hankkineille tuskin lienee pakkohankinta.
Pros: + Shot stick ohjaus, + Näyttävä presentaatio selostajia myöten, + Pelitietoja ylläpitävä NBA Today ominaisuus, + Tekoäly antaa mukavasti haastetta, + Uudet pelimuodot rikastavat sisältöä
Cons: - My2K-tilin pakkotyrkytys, - Tuttu valikoiden sekavuus
Conclusion: The best NBA game on Xbox 360 just got better. The gameplay is mostly familiar, but improved with 360-degree post play, unprecedented controls over your shots with the right stick, and better A.I.. The real changes here come in the form of the NBA's Greatest mode, which lets all of the people who say basketball was better 20 years ago prove it by letting you unlock and use all of the great classic teams featured in the mode and pit them against current teams.
Excerpt: While real life basketball may have a few issues right now (the lockout, the Chris Paul debacle and LeDrama James), basketball games have enjoyed a resurgence in the last few years. The 2K series has been consistently better than EA's basketball sim, and this year's installment is better than ever.
Conclusion: Improved graphics, gaming’s best sports presentation, and terrific polish make NBA 2K12 the best basketball simulation available. While it’s tough to convince gamers to buy the game with the lack of an NBA season, the reason also works as a reason to buy the game. The improved presentation provides an illusion of an authentic NBA telecast while the new NBA’s Greatest Mode is as much a tribute to the NBA’s history as last year’s Jordan Challenge was a tribute to the...
Excerpt: NBA 2K12 review Game Over Online - http://www.game-over.com 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 for a new collective bargaining agreement to be signed so that we can again spend Thursday nights with the TVs tuned to TNT for the weekly NBA double-header.
Excerpt: NBA 2K11 , last year’s iteration of the series, was simply a fantastic basketball game. In fact, in the Game-Over review ( http://www.game-over.com/reviews/xbox360/NBA_2K11.html ), I said it was the best sports game I had ever played. This was high praise, to say the least, as I’ve played many, many sports games in my lifetime.
Conclusion: If sports franchises are wondering what they need to do for their next release they should pay a lot of attention to what Visual Concepts has done with the NBA 2K franchise. More than any other game on the market NBA 2K12 has managed to bring the sport to life better then we have ever seen before. Needless to say NBA 2K12 has gone back to back, and I can’t wait to see if they can do a three-peat.
