Madden takes the cake when it comes to sales, but for quite a few years running now, the NBA 2K franchise has been praised by gamers and critics alike as topping the charts with respect to pure gameplay. The game continues to look better every single year too, and a recent big aesthetic boost came with the introduction of the entire Air Jordan Legacy for last year’s Michael Jordan-heavy release. NBA 2K12 arguably makes an even bigger leap this time around with the inclusion of a huge array of kicks from Jordan, adidas, Converse, Reebok and Nike. The array is extensive in both breadth and chronology, with a great example demonstrated by the Nike LeBron series. You can pick from all of LeBron’s signatures plus the Soldier series, the new PS and V/2 lines, even the 20-5-5! All of this selection wrapped in a Foot Locker-branded package makes us very excited about this title, fellow sneakerheads, and it opens up a tantalizing range of possibilities for future games. You can see a video running through a selection of the variety after the jump; are there any notable omissions you’d want to see added, perhaps via DLC?
