While the NBA might be facing a lengthy lockout with owners and players divided, NBA 2K12 will be there at time hopefully, first screen inside.

I loved playing NBA2k11 but i haven't play it nearly as much as I wish I would. The main reason for this is the difficulty for new comers. I don't really watch NBA or know much about the teams, but I do enjoy basketball.

There should at least be some kind of strategy guide for a complete novice.

Logged in to confirm b0vril's statement. I have been playing sports games for more than 10 years now including FIFA, NHL and NFL.. but when it comes to NBA 2k series, I just get overwhelmed.

I will however try 2k12, because I can clearly see the series is really good.

It's a brilliant series, I've been playing for a long time and each game gets better and better. The graphics are not progressing the way I'd like but it's already a great looking game so not a huge deal.

I play basketball (in real life) almost every day and love the sport w/ a passion, this game is a very fun distraction on days I'm not in the gym myself.

I agree with the first 2 guys. The learning curve is pretty steep for "newbies". I love watching NBA but I don't really have a good grasp of the plays, the difference between PG, SG,.. It would be great if they would include a minimal introduction into using the plays as well as the importance of each position.

But whether we'll see such a thing or not, I'll still be buying this from day 1.

I believe past games had a section where you can run drills to learn how to rebound, shoot, pass, etc better. I don't think it goes into how to run plays but there is an option where it lights up arrows on the court so you know when and where to pass during a play. The real key to doing good in this series is just getting good at guarding your guy if man to man defense or knowing your assignment in a zone defense. As for offense, just make good shot selection and attack the basket often.

Also, shooting off the pass almost always gets a higher chance of going in then shooting off the dribble FYI.

It's all about getting easier open looks and getting the ball in the paint.
