We might not be able to enjoy watching the actual NBA season this year, but with NBA 2K12 we can come pretty damn close. Whether you're playing as a current great like LeBron or Kobe, or turning back the clock and playing as some of the all-time greats like Bird, Magic and Jordan, NBA 2K12 provides gamers with a realistic basketball experience they can enjoy.
"The smooth and flawless gameplay in NBA 2K12 makes it blaringly clear why there is so little competition in the basketball video game arena. The joystick at times can feel like an extension of your player, and pushing it too long or too hard can lead to a foul. But don’t lean on your opponent hard enough and he’s probably going to slip underneath you and head for the basket. The movement is tight and exceptionally sharp."
