Re: NBA 2k12 Discussion
2k11 is a fun game but there was so much wrong with it.
For 2k12 I hope they fix:
1. Morphing/Ball Tangibility - I get so sick of playing great defense and the cpu just shooting or passing the ball through my players and scoring or drawing a foul. I know it can't be completely eliminated, but the ball should at least be tangible 99% of the time. I can't count how many times even in My Player where I've played great defense on a guy, he shoots the ball through my hand, makes a shot and I get can "Allow Man To Score". it's so frustrating.
Translation Of Difficulty
2k still hasn't learned how to correctly translate difficulty. They feel they have to cheat you to challenge you.
2a. - The My Player AI is TERRIBLE. You have to be a one man army for your team to win. I play SG for the Bulls. I shouldn't have to average 30/8/8+ playing with Rose, Deng, Boozer and Noah. Rose can't score to save his life and he never makes open 3's although he loves to shoot them. Deng chucks as soon as he gets the ball. He will not pass the ball no matter the situation. If there are 2 people on him he will still shoot it. Boozer and Noah are the only reliable teammates, Noah more so than Boozer. They run the same plays over and over for Deng or Boozer, even if they don't work. Rose never gets plays called for himself. And despite me being Top 5 in the NBA in scoring, leading the team in scoring and shooting almost 60% from the field, they NEVER run plays for me. I've literally had 1 play called for me in 2 straight seasons with the Bulls. They also don't play transition defense. My teammates will never contest the cpu's shots on a fast break. They will just move out of the way. They also won't run with me on a fast break when we have numbers. They always stop at the 3 point line.
2b. - The AI in general in horrible. In Association, your players never run fast breaks. They always fade out and stop at the wings. When they do run to the basket, they fade all the way out first so that when they do get to the rim the cpu is already in position to defend them. They are also oblivious on defense in transition. I had a situation where the other team was trying to run a fast break, but we were back in time. Nicolas Batum (who's a good defender) was in position to stop Kevin Martin from getting to the basket. But instead, Batum decides to run back towards the offense to give Kevin Martin a clear lane to the basket. Martin gets the pass, and he scores.
I could mention a lot of other things but I'll step off of my soap box for now
