MMGN writes: t’s quite depressing to be talking about the NBA knowing that the beginning of the season is nowhere in sight. The players strike over pay and the league’s stern (but admirable) stance to not give in to the union’s demands have all but ruled out an NBA season for 2012, which is rather disappointing.
I won’t get into the boardroom battles between the players and the league – I’ll leave that for the forums – but what I will discuss is NBA 2K12, a game that definitely has the capacity to fill the basketball void over the next few months. It has very, very big shoes to fill, as NBA 2K11 is arguably the best sports game ever made. Its depth, difficulty, modes and presentation propelled it above all else in the genre, so it’s no surprise that all eyes are on NBA 2K12 as its October 7 release approaches.
Can NBA 2K12 better its award-winning, critically acclaimed and much-loved predecessor? You bet it can!
