ok im pretty sure at least 1 of a million people in this world read the 2k12 review and i thought it was my longest review ive done before. now im going out with a limb and saying this is problably the best basketball game ea has ever made. i was getting ready to rent the game until i saw the "low" availibilty sign and i was really annoyed.I already played the game (and i guess you already knew that already) but i loved it so much, i could do a marathon for 2-4 hours! the only reason im getting nba 2k12 is because its low on stock and personaly 2k12 is a little harder than 2k13.guess what.... its time for the good and the baaaaaaadd!!!!
-the controls are super easier and i can do the stuff i could never do!
-the roster is really on time wether you have xbox live or not!
-my career is amazing! (as always)
-the amazing team/player creation
-i actually dont have a reason
ps.you are now reading my longest review i have ever wrote
Very well put together addition to the franchise. Controls are standard and the visuals are all great. Navigation menus get a bit clunky at times, but I've never seen menus by 2K that weren't. I really enjoy how quick and easy it is to get into online games. My biggest problem is also with the online games. Far too many times I've gotten into online games against other human players, only to have those players leave and then you're playing against the computer. The computer never subs out so you're left with teammates 'gassed' for entire halves. 2K needs to update the online match up games so that you can enter a game already in progress or join friends currently playing games already in progress. The games are far too long to wait for the completion. What usually happens is someone will drop out and a whole party leaves to rejoin each other. The questions after games during your normal season are boring and old. I hardly care what feedback I get. Play well and no one cares. They should dump the post game press conference speech or allow you to sim it. I highly recommend this game even if you're novice at sports games.
This is the best sports game of 2012. Unlike Madden, this game sticks to the basics while adding up-to-date flair and excitement. Perhaps these developers can give a few pointers to the developers of the latest Madden.
