No multiplayer with friends and you can't skip stupid cut scenes in career mode.

Wow....this should be a great game....but it is not. The AI in My Player mode is laughable, nobody on your team can make a shot for their life, and the other team just keeps draining 3's. I got drafted by the 76ers, and in the first game we lost to the Magic 124-79 because most of my players went 2-12, 3-10 or whatever, while the other team was 7-9, and 11-14. The gameplay is similar enough to 2K11...just get that game and save the $20 on this.

Decent game, especially in My Player mode... until I got to the playoffs. The AI for the game got completely ridiculous, and what was an enjoyable experience turned frustrating. The opposing teams would be super-human and hit everything under the sun, steal balls that weren't stealable, and my team would do dumb things like not grab a rebound, and leave their man wide open.

This makes the game imcomplete, and made me not want to continue playing. For the price I got it for on Steam I can't really complain, but then again, maybe the price is indicative of the fact that 2K messed this one up.
