Rated 9 out of 10 by MARIOFAN25 AWESOME BASKETBALL GAME
hello gamers and welcome to my next review nba 2k13. it starts off after to begin the game you automatically put in information about you and create your own player. while creating your player you choose the usual stuff but now there are new signature moves. I highly recommend dimer and ankle breaker. but also shot creater. if you choose the my player mode you attend the rookie showcase and show off your skills to nba scouts and they try to draft you. after the showcase scouts that are interested interview you abd see if your right for thier team. after you are drafted you play until you retire basically. earn vc to upgrade your skills. outside of the my player mode 2k13 has a lot to ofer. from normal games and creating players and teams. to blacktop and the allstar weekend (pre order bonus) online in this game is awesome. play 3on3 games with all sorts of players from around the world and earn vc. so overall 2k13 is the best in the series and comes highly recommended to basketball fans
Rated 0 out of 10 by CacaBoyJonathan Looking foward to 2k13
I hope that 2k13 fix all the morphing and ball tangibility, and stop making you dribble of your teammates and opponents foot cause that rarely happens in real life, and when your playing my player, I want the guy who talks at half time talk about your my player, cause your myplayer may have like 25 points at half, but the guy mentions your teammate who has only 10 points. Fix game sliders, more hair styles, more tattoos, I wish you could create your own nickname for your my player, more signature dunks, more and better sneakers you can NIKEid, better attribute ratings for the rosters because I was really skeptical of the players rating in 2k12,, put in more contact dunks and contact lay up, MAKE HALL OF FAME LESS AGGRAVATING, make the players play like their attributes states, cause I was playing the Magic and Dwight Howard make 3 mid range shots in a row, but his shot medium is only a 56. I want this game to be a way better game than in 2k12, cause honestly I thought 2k12 was trash
Rated 5 out of 10 by 2k007 Very unrealistic and NBA Live like
When NBA 2k came out it destroyed NBA Live.
Now NBA 2k 13 is like NBA Live.
Very unrealistic game play if your a hardcore NBA fan.
Three's are too easy to make, defense is a joke and rebounding.
Players can jack up three's 5 - 10 feet behind the arc and nail them with someone in their face. Players that don't get any run in the real game seem like allstars. Player defense and rebounding is totally weak. A player can make the shot when double teamed most of the times. When rebounding you can have four guys in position to get the rebound but some how the other team gets the rebound etc. Passing and dribbling is tight but that's it. 2k took steps backwards with this one. The game play is too arcade/NBA Live like. I've been a 2k fan for NBA/NFL since they came out. NFL 2k destroyed Madden and EA knew that so they stopped 2k from making NFL 2k. 2k please make NBA 2k14 more realistic and leave the arcade game play to NBA Live.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Shamus The greatest game ever made.
I am completely blown away by NBA 2K13. The Social Media is great. When your doing the MyCAREER mode, your player can interact with other players and celebrities. The MyTEAM is great also. You can construct your own dynasty to your liking. The 2K Shoe Creator is excellent. You can style your own shoes with any brand (Jordan, Nike, Adidas, Reebok, Converse, you name it.) With MyCAREER, you can decide what kind of endorsements your player can intake by choosing either to side with Jordan or Nke. Jay-Z did an awesome job with the soundtrack, bringing Kanye West's "Amazing" back from NBA 2K10.The menus are so exquisite with the design. The 2K Closet and the accessories for MyPLAYER are awesome. The general manager meetings are really good. You can get drafter first overall in MyCAREER. I think NBA 2K13 is the greatest game ever made.

I really hope that this game is as real as watching it on tv, the realler the better i say. And 2k should put the tnt nba insider crew as part of the halftime show and have craig sager interviewing player of the game on court. and have a non stop live scores and news going while we play and while in the menu. And with the slam dunk contest ,it better be inside a stadium for once, like in real life. and add special guest to crowd like jack aka the joker in the lakers stadium and spike lee at the garden. and finally when a player gets hurt may the expressions be better on the team not just stand their and watch him get up real sluggish. and may we have all OLDSCHOOL teams and players as a option, id like to play with a.i. and eric snow with motumbo.BUt like i said, the REALER THE BETTER...NOW DO WORK 2K!PLAY BALL
Rated 0 out of 10 by JJJJ4 The Game Itself
The game itself has to have changes since the previous game like MY Player Mode and other things. First My Player mode should have You driving yourself to practice or Playing street-ball at your house in your backyard with your kids. And pretty much everything else in My player Mode but there should be more Press Conference Questions, Interview Questions, etc. Also to get to play street-ball at a park or play around in your local neighborhood and playing in the playoffs and All-star game and the my player should at least be 75-80 overall it's not fair in the rookie showcase. Next should be the chance to play in the All-Star game. There should be a three-point contest and slam dunk contest. You should also be able to play anything you'd wish. Comment if you Agree with me or Comment if you disagree with me
Rated 0 out of 10 by GP88 I'm looking forward to this Big Time!
I hope this game delivers. I hope they fix the broadcasting,I hope they make Game winning Celebrations,Big bucket Reaction & Championship Celebrations more Fluid. I wish they could implement Technical Fouls..like for example, If your team committs the Technical Foul it's a Good/Bad choice. Good because it can give your on-court players a stamina & confidence/Hot streak boost & bad because it's a Technical & the opposing team obviously can get a free point from the Line plus depending on the players Hard Foul Tendency rating, he could be ejected/DQ'd. None the less, I expect this Game to be the best yet & it will look & feel different in many ways...This game will be like watching Ray Allen in a Heat uniform. It'll be very different from what we've been used to seeing for the last several years.
Rated 5 out of 10 by zackdclark Great game. Last year. Now it's half a game.
I like the game a lot, and there is a lot of improvements from 2k12, but one thing made me return this. The online servers are shut down permanently because 2k14 is out. So, what that means is, all the cool new stuff like MyPlayer wardrobe, online play, MyTeam, all that cool stuff, doesn't work now. The game will try to connect to the servers, that do not exist, and it will tell you it can't connect. So..... if you want half an NBA game, this is the best one you'll find. But it's not worth $20 for half functionality, when you can suck it up and play 2k12 online and save $10, or spend an extra $20 for a full game. Not impressed that 2K made the decision that the game will only work for a year. Probably won't buy another NBA 2K game.
Rated 8 out of 10 by Smarttypantties44 Good to have
I bought this game because I had been stuck with nba 2k11 for awhile, which actually is a great game just old rosters. What you will find in this game is that the music is much much better, and the game focuses primarily on the "My Player" mode. It literally creates a story mode for your player, plus the home screen changes to show your player. The controls have gotten much more complex, at least from nba 2k11, but that can be viewed as good or bad. The 2 things I see as poor in this game is that they have reviewed legend gameplay (MJ creating a legend and such) and also you can't bring in your player from a previous game so that it would be more fun in the beginning, instead of starting off sucky like always.
Rated 8 out of 10 by Childofprophesy best we got
This game focus is on too much offensive points and not enough defensive qualities. has been very glitchy and many of the motions are unrealistic such as rebounding 7 foot centers barely can rebound against a 6 foot point guard. 7 foot centers being able to catch up to fast guards on the break, also it continues to have bad reactions to loose balls, game often makes you trip over ppl bumping into them throwing you off balance even when you point the opposite direction and have hard times blocking shots no matter how good you are skill wise...o yea online is better and the ability to offensively dominate is easy but game still leaves things to be hoped for but its the best we got so have to deal with it...
