2K12 >>> 2K11 by a good mile, but 2K11 >>> any other basketball game ever made by light-years.

Since the last NBA game you played was 2K8, you'll really have your mind blown by 2K12.

MyPlayer on 2K11 is awesome, unless you play 2K12 first (or after) and then try it again on 2K11. It just doesn't compare to 2K12.

I'm probably not a big enough game nerd to notice the huge difference between 2k11 and 2k12 but yeah I would definetely get 2k11 for 11$. I'm like u and really think it's just idiotic to pay $60 for a game lol. I could go out to eat or something like that 5 times or more and pay $60 for it.

Just get 2K12. It's only $40 new, and you can find it for somewhere around $20 used. The game is much deeper, and the AI is vastly improved. The CPU actually reacts to jab steps, stepovers in 2k12. There is also more of a "live ball" effect that makes users think twice before dribbling into heavy traffic.

Not to mention the more advanced dribble moves(isomotion chain moves like crossover-spin, crossover-behind-the-back), much deeper post game(aggressive drives, less effective face-up, traveling violations for excessive up fakes, ability to anticipate moves and their direction), deeper My Player mode, more in-depth player abilities (ability to create your own jumpshots), and 2K's ability to update cyberfaces through roster updates.

If you're one who is really into realistic gameplay and stats, the devs have fixed the issues with low offensive rebounding and low off-ball foul numbers. They also finally fixed the way that steals and rebounds are counted this year (rebounds were formerly were not counted on blocked shots, steals were rewarded to the player who retrieved the ball after the initial deflection).

The responsiveness online in 2K12 is a bit of a step down from 2K11, especially with icon passing. There is also the removal of Online Leagues, Crew, lobbies, and custom sliders that may detract from the total online experience, but the game is still enjoyable online. The infamous spin-dunk cheese was nerfed this year, along with the excessive lead pass, largely due to the new "live ball" effect.

One of the biggest disappointments for me was the inability to run a season with the authentic 66-game schedule. That goes to show how solid the game is overall.

2k12 >> 2k11 >>>>>> 2k8

Is it worth 11 bucks to upgrade from 2k8 to 2k11? If you are still actually playing 2k8, then hell yes, it is definitely worth it. I would just go all out and spend the $20-25 to get 2k12 though.

Not sure if you like Baseball games, but I think 2K is giving away a FREE copy of NBA 2k12 when you buy MLB 2K12.


If you're on PS3, you'll obviously want MLB: The Show instead.
