NBA 2K12 Quick Impressions & Questions

Postby Andrew on Tue Oct 04, 2011 3:19 pm

We definitely don't want to restrict and stifle discussion here in the NBA 2K12 section, but I figured I'd create a sticky thread for those who just want to post quick impressions of the game or ask questions of those who have the game. If you want to post lengthy impressions and reviews, post videos or talk about anything in the game in general, by all means create a new thread but for quick thoughts or questions, please feel free to use this sticky. :)

OK well let me start with this for those people out there that are joining our online leagues if you think your going to do this with a pirated game think again, 2K has taken a lot of steps to make sure that you have a legit copy of the game before you even think about getting on so if you have joined our league and planned on using a pirated copy of the game please with draw your team pick because it will be impossible. first thing I noticed players are all shiny its kinda weird but up close they look like wax :lol: ummmmm layups and the jukes are a lot more smoother this year i really enjoy that part of the game haven't really done much dunking yet its not as easy as it usually is...passing seems to be a little off 85% of the time I would throw a pass there was 1 second delay which made me turn over the ball quite a bit. that's it for now still test if you have any questions about the game please feel free to ask

Oh my gosh, NBA 2k12!!!! Man, not buying this game is a bad mistake and I'm not talking about online functions, because it never worked properly... But I don't believe a 30 bucks game will have decent online gameplay. But as soon as you can evaluate the online I'll be happy man, congrats for the game!!!

I have tried to get online so far and it says there are 23 people online but couldn't get a match up with anyone right now but will try again tomorrow, also we do have basically the same menus the only difference is you don't see the pictures of the players in the back of the menu but its the same thing for PC not like it was in 2k10 and 2k11

That's good news regarding the menus, players don't look like the consoles right? Like the shaders? Also did you notice if we finally had custom music?
Sorry bout all the questions STC just a little anxious :D

Good news on the menus. (Y)

Would you please be able to upload the roster files so we could take a look at them, see if they can be opened with the latest version of REDitor II? If not much has changed, we might be able to start editing early.

I agree with this one would you please upload it because i think reditor II will no longer work on it so that vlad can now look on it. I also hope that the iff editor will be updated bec. according to you stomp the old ones doesn't work on it to bad for us.

How's the audio on the PC? Does it support surround sound yet and if not how is the quality.

I know 2k10's for pc was a huge step back coming from PS3.

Let me add a few things that just blew me away.

- Replay! Instant replay! It has this thing called "directors cut" which is basically making a movie of the loaded replay. Like how a game would do on a sprite slam cam but with any loaded replay.
- Their is ranks for online, rookie-pro-etc.. Doing the training camp takes you all the way to pro but it's kind of long.
- POST PLAY! I used to be one of the rare few that actually used it in the previous games but now it's just so smooth! It's a gamble though, you don't go left if your opponent cuts right.
- Off-Ball juke moves - This is more for my player but you can do cuts, sprints and any other move to get open when you're off the ball.
- Everything has a more on the fly type of game. Now you run quick plays like Iso and post but it automatically goes to the best player for that type of move "Celtics - Bird gets open, McHale in post, Johnson Iso" You can also change the camera ON THE FLY by pressing up on the D-Pad. The only thing that kind of bums me out is you can't check the stats of your players when you're on offense to see who's close to a double-double etc...

and then there's NBA greatest mode... *sigh* :bowdown2:

Just wondering, does the graphics in online mode turns at low setting even in offline you are at high settings like in 2k11? I will appreciate your response.

So I played one full game and the first couple minutes of an online game (I quit because of low settings, locked at 15 fps even though I benchmarked, and the game running at half speed)

gameplay is pretty awesome. I love the live ball stuff, you have to be very careful with abusing the block button this year (so many fouls because of running into players)
I had this one play where Jeff Green picked off a Joakim Noah pass and ran into him after grabbing the ball. Charge on Green. Pretty cool sequence.
I love the new shooting mechanics and the post play.
I didn't have any of the "offline lag" i noticed in the demo, but you do need to account for momentum more this year on D
AI played really good from what I saw, Rose dominated the ball and was involved in nearly every play.
Wrap up "hard" fouls were cool, did it back to back from fast breaks and the game awarded the other player the clear path foul 2 shot + pos technical.
yea, it was a lot of fun, I'm converting videos and I will join them up & post it when it's done.

Oh, and the "Beluba" cam is awesome, I love it.


and you can save pressbooks right to your harddrive now, still gotta share them all or none though
My HP thing is where you upload "Direct Uploads" now, you can't do it straight to YouTube or in game (they goto nba2k.com)
Reelmaker is the same as last year, crappy AA, no sweat, shitty textures, same tools and stuff too. Again, shares to nba2k.com
Although I'm all linked up to Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, I think all the real integration of that comes from the website not within the game.

sounds good so far,i dont like the sound of this online situation though, sounds like offline is just as it was last year, which is a good thing, not good for online, maybe that patch, that comes next year...will help the online.

it's also disappointing hearing that the custom arena music is not in, why does it say it in the manual, but its not there ?

Maybe I can do something with this, it shouldn't be hard to remove NBA Logos from the 2K11 jersey files, i'll give it a go.

Just a quick little edit i've done on one of my jerseys, try this in NBA 2K12 and see whether there are 2 logos, cause I don't have the game yet due to being in Australia...

It's the Miami Heat Alternate by the way.

If this works, I'll do more conversions. Let me know.

Ah yes, I should have picked up the obvious answer. I'll make more conversions if people want them. Better go and make a thread in the patch previews section.

My quick impression is that it's Great. They've changed some of the controls so I need to get the hang of the game again. The only thing that I don 't like is that Phil Jackson is no longer in the game, I realize he retired but they could have kept him as the coach for all those classic Bulls teams.

One step ahead of you Lean... Already got two done, just don't take the red jerseys, I've started on them.

NBA Greatest is amazing, the presentation is just like watching a NBA Hardwood Classic on NBA TV

I play the PC version...Here are my first impressions..

The game's presentation is off the charts. Menus are so clear and sharp.

The biggest thing I noticed was that this year's game is less demanding on the rig. Everything plays so much smoother eventhough the courts and crowd look so much better looking.

Graphically the faces are a negative side. All players look like they have chalk on their face. Its weird they wouldn't notice that glaring oddity on everyone's face.

The gameplay is so much more realistic. Players move very realistically and the gameplay flow is very pleasing to look at.

Also no longer will a crossover lead to a sure dunk. A lot of realistic obstructions and collisions around the bucket.

Overall Im happy with how the game feels. I have not gotten used to the controls yet so the game will feel even more fun when I have figured all the in game details out.

PS. I love how the game is actually less demanding on a system. The gameplay looks even better graphically yet the game plays even smoother. The only thing weird is the player faces. IDC that much about that though other people cant stand that.

My Player is a lot of fun still but they made it a lot easier. I already know that I'm going to be an all-star as a mid-60s rated rookie if I stick it out. However, the fact that there isn't a million glitches, and the additions to presentation make it worth playing again.

Gameplay seems good. The shooting percentages are a little high, but the sim sliders seem to only need minor tinkering. The added polish also makes the game feel more authentic, and more fun in an empty sort of way.

I haven't played with Association yet as from what I've heard its the same as last year's but the player ratings don't seem too bad and I like that they don't have generic stand-ins for the rookies. When there are some rosters with rookies on 2kShare, the game will be fine, lockout or no.

The Legend mode is flawed, as there are 3 refs in the 60's and 70's games! I also noticed that I can't play in the Legends arenas if I am selecting a current team as the home team. If I select a legendary team as the home and I scroll through the various arenas it does not even have an option to revert back to the default arena! The Hornets and Magic are teams in which I noticed this flaw!

Where is the Commit Fouls slider.It's a risky decision by 2k to cut this slider.

I've been testing the game for the last 4 hours and overall, it's pretty impressive. I love nba2k9, bought 2k10 and 2k11 but didn't touch either because they weren't as good as 2k9. I will definitely stop playing 2k9 and switch to 2k12. Not right away because 2k12 doesn't include rookies and until a roster update is release w/ rookies, there is really no point to starting a season in 2k12. Like others stated, 2k12 is less demanding on the cpu and the game play runs more smoothly than the last 2 years. Signature shots has also gone downhill since 2k9 and you see many players with very similar signature shoots. 2k12 also got lazy and instead of labeling signature shots, they just label shots as "release 1, 2, 3 etc", which makes it hard to modify signature shots without specific labels.

Game is fine, but the rosters and ratings are stupid as faek. Why havent they included free agency before season start in association? Its a dumb idea to not include rookies, and use this seasons salaries. Also players who would be free agents this summer are signed to a stupid 1 year 1.4 mil deal. It would be better to make free agency before association start, and add fake name rookies with their real equivalents stats.
