Crashes A LOT right in the middle of a game and when you play a while and you dont save youre screwed. Other than that the usual fun, even tho career mode is tough.

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.

The best sport game in years. 2K set the bar, great presentation, sound, graphics and gameplay. Great use of license. On step forward from the last NBA 2K11 (good game too).

This game depends on the computer you have. I have a very new windows 8 computer, but with a bad graphics card, so i need to play with low quality, and nba live 06 looks better. if you have a good computer get it. if you got a cheap-o, dont get it

I don't know what happened to sports games, but lately they have turned into a buggy mess. Gave this game so many chances and was incredibly dissapointed each time.

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.

Buy. Plug in wired XBox controller to your USB port. Play. MyPlayer mode is better than ever, all the other standard game modes are there and do what you expect them to. You want basketball, you got it here.
