Major League Baseball 2K13
MLB 2K12 part 2
After my 2K12 game went kaput I picked this one up. To my surprise after playing it for a bit I realized it was pretty much the same game with a few roster changes. Nothing when it comes to gameplay, graphics or sound have been changed at all. Heck, even the same generic minor league guys have the same names and on the same teams that they were the previous year. With the exception of the rosters for the MLB teams (mentioned already) and the new uniforms and league for the Astros this game is nothing more than a patch update for last year's game that you have th plunk down good money for. I wonder if they (2K) even bothered to do anything with it before a month or so before they released it because with it being the same as last years nothing shows that they did. Save your money and get last years game and just update the rosters if you do not mind having the Astros still in the NL.
Exactly the same as 2k12
After playing 2k13 all night I can truly say it is exactly the same as 2k12. Not just similar, with a few upgrades I mean exact. The only new additions in this years copy is new music and roster updates. To prove how exact of a copy this is all players that have a new team this season from free agency or traded all are wearing there old teams hat in there picture. Ichrio Suzuki who has been a Yankee for a while now, still has a mariners hat on. But it's not just him, it's every single player with a new team.
To me that's just inexcusable and plain lazy,
No new game modes or any new gameplay upgrades as well, from all the games I played the players faces all look exact as well from last year.
But note, if you liked 2k12 like I did, you will enjoy this game. But for $60 I can't recommend it for just a few new songs.
It's not bad, but there still are many bugs.
They really haven't added much new lines, but it's still really good.
Personally I think the stadiums look great and so does the field but players look disgusting.
I loved the music in 2k12 so much, and these songs are good, but not as good.
Upgrades from 2k12-5
Like I said exactly the same.
To be honest I was hoping for more, I know it was announced late but come on. They could have done some thing. I just hope they fix this series on the next Xbox or I will buy ps4 strictly for the show.
This baseball game is great. It has many modes such as season, play ball, home run derby, and franchise. It has great commentary and great graphics. A must have for die-hard baseball fans.
It's a decent game,may have a few glitches in your game once you've had it for four and a half months.I recommend it for competitions and gamers who watch sports.
seems to similar to 2k12
This game is a good game. Its graphics are good, and game play is too. I think it is to similar to 2k12. Only a few things are different. A lot is more of a transport with, just different players on different teams. If you don't have 2k12, don't buy this, if you do, trade in 2k12/sell it.
Putting a new cover on 2k12
I feel like 2k Sports forgot that they were supposed to make the game so in the last month they just took the programming to 2k12 and changed the menu artwork, music, and player stats. The announcers have a couple new lines but nothing seriously changed. I wasted 60 bucks on this to replace the exact same game. If you sat me down in front of two screens in mid gameplay, one with 13 and one with 12, I couldn't tell you which is which. Don't get me wrong, I liked 2k12, it's just that when I spent $60 I was expecting change. I'm overall disappointed that 2k couldn't make even somewhat of an effort to make this game. Hoping next years is improved tenfold.
2k12 all over again
this game is like the same as its sequel. Just a different cover, different bgm. I do not recommend this game at all.
Buy 2k12, or a Playstation
If you're looking to buy a baseball game, do not purchase the newest installment from 2k sports. Instead, you can buy the 2k12 version, and it is the exact same game for a fraction of the price. I bought 2k12 when it came out for $60, and I bought 2k13 for $60, and they are identical. The only updates was the case cover (which actually looks surprisingly similar), the music, some in game artwork, and some player stats. The main menu screen and in game dashboards are even identical. None of the glitches are patched up, and some players, who spent the entire 2012 season with a different team than 2011, still have their pictures from 2011 up with their old team (Ichiro is wearing a Seattle Mariners cap). I am a huge fan of baseball and baseball video games. I have bought a baseball video game every year since 2001. I am no longer purchasing 2k baseball games. I am even making sure that I buy a ps4 instead of the new xbox so that I can purchase MLB the Show instead of 2k's next installment, which I am sure will be another huge disappointment.
This game is good for gamer's that are sports fans or like baseball and don't get mad if you start to lose.
This game is a tiny different from 2k12. The "My Player" mode has a little more features. The graphics have increased to the point where close ups actually look pretty good to me for a video game. Overall the gameplay isnt where you can score 30 runs a game anymore which is nice and is a lot of fun to play. got this on the 5th and me and my kid have played probably 20 games in the past 2 days and have no complaints. Overall a great game and would recommend to anyone!
