    Default NBA 2k12

    Thinking of buying it now that basketball is back on the cards for this year. Is it any good? I heard it's a pretty frustrating game this year.

    Did they fix it so the crowd isn't silent after you hit a game winner on your home court?

    You guys serious? I can't get my head around the popularity of this game seriously. It's still exactly the same as NBA 2k9 there really is almost no difference. Graphics are the same, animations are the same, I'm really not a fan.

    Maybe I just suck but it feels so damn clunky, like when you're trying to run around the court you can't change direction quickly, all the animations are canned ones and you get stuck doing stuff you don't want to... The amount of times I've been called for 3 second violations when I started trying to leave the key after 1 second but some guy is pushing me back in... Also using the left stick for moving and ISO moves is just awful why the hell they didn't put it as the right stick for ISO is beyond me, shot stick is totally unnecessary since there is a button for shooting. Pulling off ISO moves is just silly half the time you get a move you didn't want and all this crap...

    Trying to defend on ball is just ridiculous as soon as you make the slightest movement in one direction the CPU just blows right by you the other way, constantly trying to play catch up, almost no time to react to what the CPU is doing.

    I dunno like I said maybe I just suck at NBA 2k but I can't say this years feels like any kind of improvement on previous years which is kinda silly, they've had 1 year to improve stuff and only added a new menu, some cutscenes and stuff, nothing has been truly revamped.

    If you guys wanna give me some tips to how you handle these things it would be cool if not this game is going back in a week or two

    Just bought a copy of the game for the 360. One thing I noticed was that the graphics is much much better compared to the PS3 version.

    The game is great and maybe the best NBA 2K game they've ever created.

    Only downsides with NBA 2k12...........

    1) you can't use your my player online...which was the best part about nba 2k11.

    2) The defensive AI is so good it's unrealistic.

    3) The AI blocks every shot....I had darren collison stuff Amare as Amare was open for a dunk, it was just the most comical thing I have ever seen.

    4) The AI steals everything and they can still see passes without looking at the ball like nba 2k11.

    5) Crowd reacts better with big games, etc but they are still quiet when u hit big shots at times, 2k sports has to improve this and make it like EA sports NHL where the crowd is awesome.

    6) Players still do stupid things when they are playing as AI, such as going for a lay up and shooting under the rim, hitting the rim, which we only see in middle school basketball games, or if Jared Jeffries is playing

    yea i wish 2k would change the crowd in the game. like if its a close game with 1 minute left i want them going crazy. also playoff games get buckwild from the tip add the towels or something that would be insane i wish they add that to 2k13 its all the game is missing in my opinion.

    This is probably the most accurate description based on my experience. I've had the game since it first came out.

    As a casual player I quite like 2K12, particularly how they have set up the My Player mode so you can play key games only. Makes the game progress much quicker. However, on my My Player file, I got drafted by the Jazz but requested a trade to the Knicks which was granted. However about 3 games later Melo was traded to the Hawks for Horford and Smith and a few games after that Stoudemire was traded to the Sixers for Iguodala and Young. Probably over all a better team but the point of me wanting to be traded to the Knicks aside from being a fan was so I could play with STAT and Melo! Only a game I know, but still annoying!!

    I forgot to mention that during my player mode, the teams make ridiculous trades.

    I was drafted by the Suns and ten games later the Suns traded Steve Nash for no one special. Then I was working great as a PG and hitting Vince Carter every game, they traded him. I don't understand the moves.

    thanks for the comment, I;ve been trying to find people who adjusted the game sliders to realistic settings.If you know any sites that posted game sliders that work, let me know. I know changing game sliders made my nba 2k11 experience better.

    Well, I'm a firm believer in that video games should give the choice of a challenging game AND simple fun for fun sake. MyPlayer isn't fun, altho I hear they raised the talent level of a first yr MyPlayer guy (in 2k11, u started out as considerably worse than the worse player in the league). But still, the CPU is able to warp in front of you when you've beaten them off the dribble and still with the animations that ignore ur actions.....smh, i just gave up.....

    Exactly thats the kind of thing that annoys me about the game, all of these preset animations that take far too long to execute. Also feels like there is no space at all on the court, you can ISO, beat your man off the dribble and before you even get to the key your path has already been blocked.

    I think its a real shame this is the only basketball game on the market because there's no motivation for them to really improve the game. The game still has all the same problems from 2k10 and 2k11, things you would expect to have been fixed with a patch shortly after release yet 2 years later they are still releasing unfinished, buggy games.

    The My Player mode is just stupid now, if you don't play PG you have to call for every pass you want thrown to you. You can be wide open charging into the lane and call for a pass and they won't throw it to you and it pops up "bad call for pass".

    Oh well, it's the only game out there so guess I will stick with it and hope they actually bother to release the patch for the PC version unlike other years when they patch XBOX and PS3 and then wait 4 months to fix the PC version, and don't fix anything.
