So how are you spending NBA 2K12 Eve? The Sports Gamer has a few suggestions.
-Re-inflate the old basketball in the garage for one last game of driveway hoops before the weather gets too cold.
-Spend a few hours tonight working on your Dirk Nowitzki Halloween costume.
-Download the NBA 2K12 demo via Xbox Live or PlayStation Network.
The demo features a rematch of the most recent NBA Finals between the Miami Heat and the Dallas Mavericks. You can only play as the Mavs in the demo--sorry, Lebron--the commentary has been stripped out (as it usually is for sports game demos), and you're limited to a single four-minute quarter. But the demo does give you a glimpse of what you can expect from the game--hint: improved defense--tomorrow, October 4th, when the game officially ships.
The Sports Gamer has had a full copy of NBA 2K12 for about a week now. Suffice to say that what you see here in the demo is merely the tip of iceberg for the incredibly deep gameplay experience that I have discovered below the surface.
Also, did I mention that the demo is free? Go download it now.
