The computer kinda cheats you on Hall of fame, because they make alot of shots, even on good defense. My advice is play on Pro or rookie. Maybe all-star if your the casual 2k player. Use your icons to pass, because they are more accurate. Stay on your man, or let the computer guard while you guard the lanes. Take Mid-range jumpers, those go in at a high percentage.

What also helps is the game type...underneath the difficulty should be another setting that says default. Change that to either simulation or casual. Simulation makes the CPU be a bit more realistic in shooting percentages. Casual will allow you to make more shots and keep momentum on your side for longer. Shots are based on release on the causal setting.




Now if this doesn't help.....


You jus might.....




actually....






SUCK!!! Maybe play NHL 12?

I haven't won a game yet against a real person and I think I might have won one maybe two games against the computer. I haven't played the game in months because I'm a sore loser. .

Didn't think I'd get much of a response, but thanks to everyone for giving me some tips and advice. Probably worth telling you all that I just bought the game last week and started playing two days ago. I played a bit of 2K11 last year, but didn't really have the time to learn. Thought I'd give 2K12 a go this year and learn a bit.

My main complaint is just that it has such a steep learning curve for a sports game. Higher than any others I've played. I bumped it up to Superstar today and I lost by about 10 points, playing with the Knicks against the Grizzlies, so it wasn't too far off the All-Star difficulty. I'll obviously stick with All-Star until I can win by a good margin before going up any further.

I think I improved my post game today, so I had a chance to lead for a bit. Also taking more time with my possessions, rather than just rushing around, passing and shooting. Still need to work on driving to the basket (this is hard as hell when everyone just crowds around the same area, waiting for you to come up so they can block your layups), but hopefully I'll get there soon.

It's crazy how many shots the CPU gets from the 3 pt line though when I put it up to Superstar, regardless of them being guarded.

Top Spin 4 is a good game, man, go get it. If you're interested in a tennis game in the slightest, definitely go for Top Spin 4. I pretty much own every tennis game under the sun, from the old Virtua Tennis games, the Smash Courts, Top Spin to the newer Grand Slam Tennis games by EA (even got the first GST for the Wii).

Top Spin 4 is pretty much the NBA 2K12 of tennis games. TS3 had a steeper learning curve (and is much harder to get into if you're not too into tennis), but TS4's mechanics are easy enough for you to just start hitting. I wouldn't say TS4 is dumbed down since it feels more natural and organic to play, but it doesn't involve much of the technicalities TS3 had.

Oh, and don't bother with Virtua Tennis 3, 2009, or 4. They're really arcade-y.

On another note, I had better luck using the Mavs. Delonte West is money from the 3 point line Got him on a 15 point run and ended up with 28 points with him, 12 with Dirk and the rest were even across the rest of the team. I'll be sticking with the Mavs for now

My Player on HOF is impossible. You can show me footage and my mind still will refuse to believe it. I get beat by 30 every game. My computer players are horrible, and all the computer players on the other team are the fu*king Dream Team. fu*k that game, if anybody think it's close to "real life basketball" don't know much about basketball.

Just won my first game on All-Star Bulls v Pacers, 53-50. Was down 50-51 during the last 20 seconds of the game, went up with D. Rose to do a layup, realised he was being double teamed, passed to Deng at the 3pt line and made the shot.

Actually, that whole Q4 was clutch. I was down by almost 10 points by the 4th and had to rally back into the game. Pulled some good a.ss layups by the last couple of minutes.

Best feeling ever, to win after learning and losing for 3 days straight. Didn't even try to beat Pro, just went to All-Star, believing I could do it Rose with 43 points, he like at the Pacers team.

The CPU defense on this game is ridiculous. I hate playing with the clippers because CP3 layups get blocked every time unless you pumpfake 1000 times before you go up.

True that. Rose had to do a few pump fakes and spins before getting one layup in. Used the Heats for the first time just then and for the hell of it played against the Cavs and pretty much destroyed them. Went up by like 18 by the 4th Quarter. LeBron's layups are much easier to execute; he's pretty much godly in this game. Start sprinting from the halfway line, slow down by the 3pt line, juke, then re-accelerate, hold the shot stick forward and he's pretty much flying over everyone else.

Chalmers with the steals though Dude had like 3 steals in one quarter just then
