Not the worst game ever but like madden they take something good and progressively makes it worse every release. Very little player movement, and just end up throwing up long distance bricks and setting screens is completely shot which was one of the best ways to raise team grade. 2k10 was the best and they have just added little features here and there but for the most part put out a worse game.
Since its debut on NBA 2K10 it has been the only game mode that makes this basketball franchise worth playing however it needed a lot of improvement and this yrs 2K12 My Player is jus absolutely horrible no matter what team or difficulty settings you have on the game conspires against you making your team seem like amateurs by not passing you the ball when you are open, taking fade away 3pters from almost half court, almost ALWAYS fouling/never closing out on 3pt shooters, making bad passes when your not open, not taking the WIDE OPEN jumpshot. Meanwhile the cpu team can drop a contested 3pter in your face all day making OUTRAGEOUS fadeaway jump shots regardless of how well you defend them as well as how much you spend your attributes on your defense but THEIR defense is OUT OF THIS WORLD when it comes to blocking shots they almost NEVER foul when this happens the cpu defender in front i repeat IN FRONT OF YOU will literally grab a pass out of the air as if you were playing monkey in the middle jus all around garbage is what this game is the graphics are virtually the same as the last 2K other than My Payer and Create a Legend mode this game isn't really worth it i love 2K games but this is something their going to have to work on if they want to really take over sport games

The controls are terrible - you go to move one way, and it either takes three seconds for your character to move that way, or he keeps going and then suddenly seems to decide "Oh, maybe that way looks good." The graphics are bad, it looks like PS2 graphics instead of PS3. I wouldn't buy this game if it was in the bargain bin!
