I can't imagine any other basketball video game topping this until next gen. This is a must own game, even for non-basketball fans. There are a few bugs here any there. But, it nothing that will spoil the fun. You earn it to yourself to give it a shot. You will not be disappointed.
I wasnt looking foward to this game comming out because of the lock out and how garbage 2k11 was. Im glad the developers took all the extra stuff out the game and focused on the gameplay itself. The rotation of the ball along with the movement of the playes is almost flawless. Good ball movement plus bad defence equals open 3 pointer. Last year I was afraid to take a open 3 in a close game because of the missed shots. This year, if its open it falls. Also the play calling is easily understood by all. With play calls like "pressure shooters" or "clog middle", its gonna be a long season for your oppenent if you take advantage of this new play calling system.

Lockout or no lockout, if you're a basketball fan, then you have to pick this up. They improved so much from commentary (adding Steve Kerr), to adding a music intro before each game. The my player mode is a lot more in depth this year allowing you to speak to the owner of the team whether or not you want to play with them. And of course the legendary teams, it's not focusing only on the legendary bulls like last year, but also the 91' Lakers, '89 Celtics, and even the '65 Celtics, where the color is actually black and white. So I like the innovation 2k brought this year and for an NBA fan, It's a must have.
