"Easily tops 2k11"5.0 starson by dingdongdavis
Pros: Great gameplay, all games modes are awesome, graphics are amazing (very close to being like a real game on TV), new moves to execute, feels awesome to do great plays.
Cons: There's a lack of good rookies, which makes the rookie season less enjoyable. But I guess you can blame that on the weak draft class, and not the game so much.
Summary: Now that the NBA lockout is over, I figure I would give this game a proper review. This game is definitely a step up from 2k11. The controls and player movements are much smoother. You can really tell the effort and detail that the makers have put into this game. Being able to play as former NBA greats is really fun, too. The presentation is just perfect and the celebrations add a nice touch. Most importantly, the gameplay is probably better than any other sports game around.
