4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome October 9, 2011
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
The game is fantastic and visuals are great. Not sure why, but I can turn the graphics settings higher for this game 2012 than 2011 on the same computer. Character models are better. There are some differences so play it a while to get used to it before rating it. It is unfair to want this to be 2011 but better; it is not. In some ways it is different and much better like the my legend and my player modes. I like the drills and play next key game. Training camp is great. So overall, single player is fantastic. Tried online once and it did not work so I believe in the complaints about online issues. Would be 5-star if online is fixed. Much cheaper than console versions and so, it is a much better value. Buy it if you are on the fence. Otherwise, don't.

2.0 out of 5 stars No Support Whatsoever December 28, 2011
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
As usual, PC gamers get the shaft from developers who don't support their products. The console version is already up to its 4th patch -- hell, even the Mac OS version got a patch. The PC version? Tough.

Just a quick sampling of what's wrong with the PC version:

1. You can't download the latest official rosters. It's broken. You have to dick around with replacing files and possibly using some sort of Hex editor just to get the rookies on the right teams.

2. And when the rookies do show up, they have weird Black Arm syndrome. Cosmetic, yeah, but it's annoying and a further example of how poorly we PC gamers get shafted.

3. Playing against the computer? Welcome to an exciting game of watching the opposition point guard dribble at the top of the key for 15 seconds before panic-passing with 5 seconds left on the shot clock for a jacked-up 3.

4. You've probably heard of the infamous fast break defense. You'll get to watch guys like Luke Babbit (61 speed, 61 quickness) beating your created player with 93 speed and 91 quickness. Video proof: [...]

5. No adjusting sliders on My Player mode! Who knows if that's deliberate or not... it just sucks.

Don't buy the PC version of this game. It's broken, and it doesn't look like 2K plans on giving its paying customers a patch.

1.0 out of 5 stars CTD - Buyer Beware March 6, 2012
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
2k finally got around to patching the game today, march 6th 2012. They fixed a number of issues with player and team AI, thats all well and good but they managed to ignore the most glaring issue. CTD, the game randomly crashes to desktop on even the most capable pcs, in particular during the my player mode I cant even get past the draft. I great game with a fatal flaw that 2k seems content to overlook. Buyer Beware

NBA 2K12 is a flawless game, on the court. There are several modes, including the popular My Player, that have more depth than the NBA itself. Doesn't matter which mode you choose; you're gonna play out the current NBA season on that one mode alone. And you would've had a blast each and every time you load up a game---then 2K Sports steps in to louse it all up.

First off, don't reply to this talking about "they have great Mods for PC games if you know the correct site." Well, I knew 3-4 correct sites. What those sites told me was that it took 6 months before a patch was released to repair the dozens of developmental flaws. Yes, the version I played that was so buggy it ruined a revolutionary game was actually the PATCHED version. A typical game goes like this: you score 3 consecutive baskets, get a couple rebounds, maybe a block...then the game freezes up. It's not just me, these "great mod forums" mention these in great detail. So, upon reloading, you don't wait for those baskets, the rebound and block; you get one or two then save mid-game to make sure you retain these, then reload. Make sure you have your 3rd party gaming boosters handy, because every reload slows court action considerably. But if you get a steal and score a dunk on a breakaway, it's save and reload time again. Rinse and repeat until you spend 90 minutes for a 30 minute affair. It's not my system. Again, the forums on the recommended sites have the same, if not more problems that I have had.

Now for the bad part. Oh yeah, there's a cherry on top! 2KSports Online works great...except for the whole online part.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Sports Game Of All-Time! October 15, 2011
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I feel I must start this review by saying that I have not been an avid sports gamer for quite some time. The last time I was crazy about any sports franchise was the NFL 2k series that sadly saw its demise in 2005. Sports games for the most part just don't have "extended" play features that capture me as I am mostly a single player gamer. That being said I am not even a fan of the NBA of today. The poor player attitudes, the horrible officiating and $$$ built dynasties really turn me off. All that being said 2k has done an incredible job of capturing a sport that I loved so much at one time in its absolute purest form.

To say that 2k12 is just another sports game is a huge understatement. Having nice visuals and presentation is one thing, making you feel like you are an integral part of a team is a whole other ballgame. The mode I am speaking of is the vastly improved My Player mode that now cuts the D-League bologne and sends your player straight to the NBA. I have in the short time since buying the game spent countless hours in this mode building a Center that shoots like Kareem and has now in my second season given the Knicks their first championship in quite some time. Now I am not a Knicks fan but thats the funny thing about the mode. You are drafted based off of performance in an up and coming game. Your performance is rated and then teams come calling. Three options come up and you interview with them in a very Mass Effect like style. You have 4 options in response that will continue throughout the games many press conferences, thus giving your player a personality. It's truly the most remarkable thing a sports game has done in years. You actually feel like you are a part of the NBA. Leveling your player comes from performance and running drills.
