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.
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.
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.
Conclusion: 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 keep you playing at least until NBA 2K13 arrives.
Conclusion: A true love letter to the game of basketball. Your enjoyment may well depend on your knowledge of the history of the sport, but strip it down to the fundamental gameplay and you still have the most solid, enjoyable and well presented basketball game ever.
