This is a great game. This review is late but i dont care. It is ust so great! Theres everything! Fantasy Draft (the assosiation), Careers, Online, Play now. Its just sooooo great!!! The graphics for the players are great but the audience graphics is terrible. Theres like 20 people doing the SAME ECXACT thing!! Otherwise, its a great game and a must buy
Nba 2k13 was the best basketball game until 2k14 came out. However, if you want a basketball video game, and you don't want to spend $60 on 2k14, you should definitely look into buying this. If you update the roster and change the sliders, then it basically is the same game as 2k14. It is definitely worth $30.
Great game, could be better
This game is fun and all, but don't buy it used. Mine was all scratched up and froze a little here and there. I think that my experiance would have been better if I bought it new. That being said, this is my favorite game by far, but mycareer should be more lively. You should start as a top five draft pick, like 75 overall, not 65. You should also be able to own a crib. If I were you I'd buy this game, saves you money on nba 2k14.
1st 2k game I've loved
Personally, I've always said NBA Live >>> NBA 2k... BUT when they quit making Live for xbox, I was forced to make the switch. 2k b-ball games have always been ok to me at best... BUT THIS YEAR'S GAME BLEW ME AWAY. This game is great. Of course it has it's flaws (like all games do) but the pros outweigh the cons by far. The "My player mode" is addicting and can be played for hrs. You get hooked on making your guy become a superstar. Online play is actually pretty good too. Just DON'T be that guy who uses the Heat..... Gameplay is smooth and graphics are realistic. I've played 2k14 as well and it is a step above 2k13, BUT for the price, it's hard to not get 2k13.
I couldn't stop playing
just as the review summary says ''I couldn't stop playing'' NBA 2K13. i mean every time my cousin had the game and came over i would be like did you bring the game(to specify :NBA 2K13) i literally couldn't put the controller down.the only problem in the game is the blocking. almost all the time you'll time a block perfectly and they'll still dunk on you as if you were a 3' feet tall.My favorite game mode is the my team i mean come on there is no way it could get better its already amazing. the one thing i would like is to auction and trade like in madden 25.I also liked the idea of VC i mean how would you get buy players and boosters(I get sarcastic right here) with skill points???in NBA 2k12 it was way to easy to make your guy a superstar at a 70 overall, i got like 40.00 points per game in two seasons in a row but in NBA 2k13 they make it a bit more challenging i like the idea of having a contract for a certain amount of money and years.so i would HIGHLY recommend this game to a person who is crazy about sport games or a person who just wants a break from stripping a persons throat, shooting peoples faces with a shotgun, and raging online against modern warfare players who are playing battlefield 4.
The game is ok. I didn't like it that much. It was boring. The only thing that i liked was my career.
Gameplay is very flawed. Broken game.
AI is broken. They do not pass to open players, open players do not shoot half the time, broken passing lanes. Also I believe the grading is messed up in my career it will give you bad call for pass when I dont call, and it has given me good/bad shot defence on the guy I wasn't even guarding. Stay away from this game, their is a reason its $20. Oh and don't even get me started on the audio.. I was looking through the game modes and settings and I seriously listened to an alien voice say "around the world" for a few minutes straight until I couldn't take it and muted the TV. Could not find a way to mute it. Sorry 2K but I will dispute this purchase.. they should pay me for playing this.
This game is AMAZING!!! MyCareer is perfect but can get VERY fustrating at points. The online is wonderful!!!! There is rarely any lags! The graphics are amazing! The soundtrack could be better tho.... Anyways, GET THIS GAME NOW BECAUSE IT'S AMAZING
Good with a few flaws....
First off, awesome game 2k! You've really outdone yourselves this year! Graphics are great, Jay-Z is awesome, and MyCareer is better than ever. However, some of the mechanics are off a little. First off, in MyCareer, the trading is pitiful. About 85% of the time, you don't go to any of the teams you want (a random team is selected),and it is simply frustrating. Second of all, the trade and draft selection logic is terrible. For example, i was a point guard and i played nearly a perfect game (29 pts, 4 reb, 8 asts, 3 stls) and i get interviewed by the Bobcats, Wizards, & Cavs. Ok first off, they all have amazing young point guards, yet they decided to look at me. I don't know about all of you, but i don't like being a career backup. It takes out the whole purpose of MyCareer, and it is simply boring. Therefore, that is why i complain about this. Lastly, your starting level for MyCareer is too low. It takes too long to level up. Personally, if I'm not decent by my next season, I get bored. So all in all, good game, just needs to be fixed up.
The gameplay is very unrealistic for the most part...a lot of flaws with dunking (dunks are unblockable and there is a posterization like every two minutes), dribbling (stiff dribble moves and occasionally you will lose the ball off your own teammates feet), passing (ball doesn't always go where you want it), and on defense (on-ball defense is ridiculously difficult and there is no help defense ever)...despite its many many flaws it still is a lot of fun to play even though it can be very frustrating at times. I really enjoy it as much now as when I bought it so that is good too.
