this game doesnt look hard at all. Speaking from me this is what i think.
Non simulated games- easy
My player- easy (because im good at it, not bragging) time consuming (hall of fame)
online - easily boosted (just need to get ur boosting partner)
legend mode- well seems easy since u can use game slides and only have to win the games.
Creaitng legend mode- never played it.

Overall i think i would give this a 6

PLEASE CAN YOU GUYS JOIN MY ONLINE ASSOCIATION ITS CALLED "Dont hate the player" (NAMED AFTER TROPHY) AND THE PASSWORD IS basketball, i'll join yours just lemme know.

If the NBA Today trophy gets fixed and the becomes obtainable, I'd probably give this a 7 or 8. My player can take a while, but is not too tough, and some of the non-simulated games trophies are a bit annoying, but overall nothing ridiculous.

But personally, without boosting I'm going to find the online very difficult due to the amount of lag. Until I'm able to master the timing difference, it'll probably be near impossible to get a 5-win streak going.

I gave it a 7, only a few of them seem difficult (getting a 4 point play is tough even with sliders, online play without being a cheap booster will be tough) but it will definetly take some time to get in the hall of fame too.

I'd say a 7-8.

The only difficult part of this game is winning five games online in a row. The matchmaking is piss poor in 2K12; you could be a prospect but be matched up against an All-Star. Reaching ten victories isn't an issue; it's winning the five in a row without having random crap get in the way which is tough.

Doesn't help that the online trophies cannot be easily boost as in 2K11.

I vote 4. The only trophies that are even remotely difficult are the online win streak ones, and quite frankly there are a lot of bad players online. Even without boosting, as long as you put in a little bit of practice anyone should be able to muscle out five wins in a row and ten overall.

Other than that, you can play on whatever difficulty suits you for the Legends games, change sliders for the tricky non-sim games like the 5x5, and MyPlayer / CAL just requires you to play multiple seasons. No problem, there are far tougher platinums out there.

I'm finishing up my online association trophy today to get this platinum, but if we were to base it on difficulty I would say this is a 5 or 6. Most of the trophies are not very hard at all, but most of them take a little bit of time. The my player trophies take about 3-4 seasons depending on skill level, but they were not hard. The online trophies gave me the greatest difficulty. It can be tough to win 5 games in a row, but be patient and it will come. No need to boost it.

Rated it a 5. Not really that complicated except for the Officially Hot Trophy most especially if you're not that good at this game. There are a lot of noobs out there but getting to 5 can be difficult as you often face good players.

The online association wasn't that bad as well. All you need is a presence of mind. Always know your next playing game in the playoffs so it doesn't get simmed and give you the possibility of doing another 520+ hours of waiting.

Lastly, platinum boost roster makes it a lot easier for My Player trophies and Creating a Legend Trophies to pop.

Other trophies aren't that difficult, some are even fun to playthrough.
