There’s so much more to NBA 2K12 than we can get to here, plus we haven’t been able to check out Online Association or Team Up yet. Suffice to say, there are a few quirks that mean it’s not “perfect”, including some painfully long load times, repetitive commentary when you get further into My Player or have to repeat historic matchups (which, ahem, we had to do a few times), or questionable decisions around DLC and the removal of the Crew mode. Even so, the combination of sublime gameplay, unprecedented level of compelling historic team matchups, and an excellent update to My Player puts NBA 2K12 at a level no hoops game has ever been. The absolute mountaintop....Go To Full Review

Basketball fanatics who have never played a sports game before may have to reconsider in order to get a fix this year. Luckily, NBA 2K12 is so deviously realistic some people may forget about the lockout altogether....Go To Full Review

2K's latest hoops simulator isn't without issue, but those few problems barely register compared with the sheer volume of incredible content contained within this package....Go To Full Review

Minus a few annoyances with handling the player on offense and defense, NBA 2K12 is a blast and a must-have for any NBA fan. Heck, it’s probably the closest you’re going to get to an NBA game this year. If 2K keeps this up, they’re going to have to insert their own game into their NBA Legends mode next year. A NBA 2K game inside an NBA 2K game—2K-ception!...Go To Full Review

NBA 2K12 is a wonderful offline experience. I can’t even hazard a guess as to how many hours playtime can be wrung out of My Player, and it’s topped off nicely with NBA’s Greatest. Unfortunately the online portion seems to be riddled with issues, which will frustrate fans looking to take the NBA experience further, so be warned....Go To Full Review

This is without a doubt a sports game worth experiencing and one which feels both utterly unnecessary and entirely essential at once during this year’s lockout season. NBA 2K is a series on the rise and it seems that it’s still yet to hit its absolute peak, but 2K12 is a great game and one which fans of the sport simply cannot afford to miss....Go To Full Review
