Frankly, I didn't think that 2K Games was going to be able to outdo themselves; NBA 2K11 was pretty much exactly what I wanted from a basketball game. But 2K12 includes new features I didn't even know to ask for. They overhauled the presentation, streamlined the gameplay, added brand new modes, and refined the movements of each model to look far more realistic. (Yet the players' faces still look like poorly photocopied crime scene witness recount sketches. Oh well, I'm not going to nitpick.) 2K12 is a truly great basketball game.
