"Feels like a completely different basketball game"
5 stars"

Review by Shem on 18th October, 2011

2k12 has enhanced controls and the AI has been upgraded so that they are more realistic eg they steal the ball when the ball actually comes in front of them, also the new NBA's greatest mode is awesome as you get to play with players like Wilt Chamberlain and Larry Bird

"A must have for sports fans"
5 stars"

Review by Regan on 6th December, 2011

NBA 2k12 in one word is flawless. Well maybe not quite, but it isn't far from it. The gameplay is an improvement from NBA 2k11. My player mode is more in depth and a lot more engaging. The AI is smarter, trust me every bad pass will be punished and most likely result in a turnover. You now have a lot more control over your team as well. Being able to change shots whilst in mid air, better control over the player at the post and better control of the player in general.

Now the reason I say NBA 2k12 isn't quite flawless is due to online. The servers are not too good, the new promising Association Online hasn't hit off with a bang (yet).

If you're buying this just for the online, I'd advise for you to be very weary. The online services are not too good at all. Not terrible but not flawless either.

Overall NBA 2k12 is a must buy for a sports mad gamer. However I would suggest staying away if you are an owner of 2k11 and just play it for a bit of a bash (casual games) the improvements will be too minimal for you to be able to consider it as a wise purchase. That being said the improvements for hardcore fans are noticeable and worthwhile.

I've babbled on enough. NBA 2k12 is truly the best sports game and a must have for your collection.

"Pre-ordered but came with no DLC code"

Review by Simon on 7th October, 2011

I pre-ordered this game in order to receive a DLC code for Kings & Warriors teams. Today, I picked up the game but it didn't come with any DLC code. I was given an explanation by the staff that they had run out of codes for PS3 version because 2K didn't supply them enough. I am planning to adjust the rating once I receive the code but until then I can only give one star.

"Awesome "

Review by Adam on 17th November, 2011

Never Played 2K11. Have always played the NBA Live games back in the day. 2K12 is so much better. Lots of different game modes. So during the lock out. Buy this game and get locked In
