its more realistic the closes to real basketball my emal incase of posters firstname.lastname@example.org
the difficulty levels for My Player were a bit messed up as well. the normal mode was way too easy and the all-star mode was way too hard. it sucks being drafted by a great team only to make them suck...then being traded to another team while watching your former team win every game.
for god's sake, please improve the My Player mode! kobe should not get moved to PG to accomodate me at SG in my 3rd season in the league. also, if you're going to start me out as a scrub (which is fine) dont have the coaches treat me like a star and play me in front of estabolished veterens (as a rookie) as we lose our 12th game in a row. and finally, give me the ability to ask for a play to be called for me. it sucks when you are doing all the dirty work on defense and crashing the boards and then never be involved on offense at all unless you just take the ball and create your own shot.
@Fatslick911 There is plenty wrong with the gameplay...passing for one is terrible even when using R1. A guy cuts to the basket u hit pass and he throws it to a guy covered on the complete opposite side of the court. Certain animations play out all the time and fouls r called at random. ***************************************************************** The problem I have is with control passing. For some reason when I pull up control passing and select say "B" to pass to the guard and they press "X" to shoot, he'll pass it to SF who would be player "X" with control passing on. For some reason it doesn't turn off instantly after the pass. If I use the right analog stick, he will still pass the ball instead of shooting. It happens at least 1-2 times a game now. Really pisses me off.
I seriously hate the stupid autoplay feature that gamespot has on it's videos, To often do I watch a video then start typing/reading comments and the darn thing loads a new page and new video. Why would I want autoplay features on these gameplay clips anyways? Dear gamespot, please make the autoplay feature an option and not a standard...it's really annoying for me. Oh and I hope 2k12 does better with the post game, My player mode, and the terrible passing. NBA 2k would be twice as good.
This can be broken down really simply by anyone that has played all modes deeply in 2k11. #1 No more hacking my players. What is the point of having a mode where everyone plays as their own players when 90% of the players out there have just went online bought the kit you need a made a guy that is a 99 in every catergory. 8 foot centers that shoot 3's. What is the point of someone playing through and building a player up when a person can do what your doing legit in 20 mins on their computer and 360. #2 Fix the online ranked matches, it makes no sense that you either cannot get a game or when you do you can't stay connected. There has been times where I tried for a half hour straight and did not get a game so that is just pure crazy talk. So fix that issue. #3 The gameplay was overall pretty solid except for the passing. The passing was some of the worst I have ever seen in a sports game period. There is no reason that NBA players should not be able to make 1st grade simple passes. If you can fix those 3 things the game will be on point but if you still have those issues you take away from your top 3 modes in the game online ranked matches, my player and just playing any mode in the game period with the passing. 2k please step your game up.
The computer playing the passing lane was the most fustrating thing on the planet. Ridiculous reach-in fouls called. The patch ruined the jumpshot timing. The hacking of my player to add skill points made the mode playable to me. You shouldn't start out as a scrub in the NBA at any level. I hope they do something with the play portraits in the game for nba 2k12. I hate seeing a blank picture for a drafted player or created player. I would rather they just show in-game shots instead of player photos anyway. The intra-squad scrimmage was a fun addition, I just wish they would tie in team chemistry to it based on the amount of time played. I would like to be able to use my player in the street ball mode. What happened to the different court locations like the old 2k's? Can I get some more franchise controls? Ticket prices, vendor prices, endorsements? After game interviews in franchise mode as well. Can I make a team and change the arena and have names that can be announced? Home team and away team are not acceptable. Some new hairstyles and more tattos? I still wish i could adjust the body of created players with greated options. Nose and ears are ok, but how about arms, legs, stomach and chest? If you are going to start my player with such low numbers, how about running him from high school, college and pro, or at least college, combine and pro. Just a few things.

One more note i want to add about online play. Is RANKINGS. I think 2K should remove the ability to leave a Negative feedack raiting for someone. I think they should make SEPERATE GAME LOBBIES. You should know where abouts someone lives in the world when playing them. Like US-ASIA, EUROPE- AUSTRALIA and so forth. EA sports has this ability to know what region someone lives in. Players want to be able to play people closer to them for a better connection online. Also in the PC version of NBA 2K12 they should have a way to TEXT CHAT while in the game lobby for better interactions with players, as well as voice chat. The RANKED MATCHES SHOULD WORK BETTER. If anyone also has any comments to make to improve ONLINE PLAY please post below so that 2K sports may see this. If not there Nba eK series is DOOMED!
"Struggled a little bit with online" HAHAHAHA, say you struggled ALOT... FIX ONLINE FOR REAL THIS TIME. Online is the only important feature in the game. Nothing else matters. PERIOD!
Dont count on 2K12 being any better in regards to ONLINE PLAY. 2K sports has been saying this for over 6 years now, and every year i play this game, there ONLINE PLAY gets worse. I play the PC version, although i can tell you that the CONSOLES have been Aweful too when it comes to ONKINE PLAY too. Constant Disconnections from NETWORK ERRORS which is not the USERS fault, its on 2K's end. I have never in my life seen such incompetant people in 2K's tech support team. Players pay good money to use there online service which never works right. Getting connected to ranked matches is almost non-exixstant. The Game itself Offline will probably be nice. I really have no complaints with off-line modes, but like i said the majority of people want GOOD SOLID ONLINE GAMEPLAY, Not lies and deceptions ny 2K tech support. Fix Online ,and this will be the greatest game ever. But i dont see them topping last years jordan, you can never top the top..Most players know what im talking about. If you a die-hard fan, you have been through it all. All the heartache and pain, that 2K puts us through every year.
