Improves Upon Everything 2k11 Was

I bought this game day one and i have enjoyed the game for the most part. When i first started playing i had to re-learn everything because they added so many moves that you could pull-off and that took some time and a lot of practice to get the hang of it. Once you learn the controls this game just gets better and better the more you play it so don't feel like the game is bad because you feel they are too complicated. After practicing it for a little you'll be able to do almost all of the moves. As for the online, i haven't even touched because i know that 2k's online is pretty terrible. The Greatest mode was a nice addition with the all former NBA star i wish i saw are all playable and it feels nice to dominant with them. My Player is pretty fun too with the endorsements and such but I'm watching for the patch to fix a few things with that along side with the association mode which is basically the same as last year. Having the NBA lockout affect this game not having the rookie's isn't a big deal to me so i wasn't too disappointed with that but Overall this game is great if you didn't pick up 2k11. It's 100% a rent and i would recommend buying it too (thats up to you obviously) but don't feel intimidated by all the controls because in reality they are pretty simple to pull off. CAN'T WAIT FOR THE LOCKOUT TO BE LIFTED!

Game would be great if it didn't freeze so much!

If this game's loading times weren't half an hour or if the game didn't freeze every time I went into myplayer... it would have been great. Great graphics, awesome gameplay...when you can actually get into a game. I called 2K offices and they said my PS3 was bad...funny because I have two and the same thing happened. I deleted all my game utility and saved data and still nothing, no improvements. So I called Sony to address the issue, they said they have been getting a butt load of calls on this game because of the same issue. Wish the 2K offices would actually care for a bit instead of trying to promote 2K13.
