Rated 10 out of 10 by Firebird This is the best one yet
I have to admit that I was hooked on the demo so I put it on reserve September 29th and I was at the midnight release in Baytown at 9:30pm CST for this. This game is off the hook and I would so tell somebody to get this. The chances of going #1 in the draft is really cool and so far the highest I've gone is 8th and that is to the Toronto Raptors. The graphics on this game is just out right sick and the controls are flawless. I rarely give all 10's on a game because it really has to blow me away and this does that. The only downfall to this game would have to be that you can't say what you want in the press conferences and the pre-screening right after your Rookie Showcase game. Other than that, this game is flawless and is a MUST buy. I repeat... MUST BUY!! Whoever gives this game less than a 10 have no idea what they are talking about. Also good luck on finding this used because you would have a better shot at winning the lottery. GO BUY THIS TODAY
Rated 6 out of 10 by ABCDABCDABCD This game is a good for my player, nothing else.
This game is really good for just about anyone who loves basketball, the NBA, or just anyone wanting a sports game. I do have a few problems with the game. In less than 2 months, I have a problem with the quick game mode as well as the associtation mode. I can only control one player, which is the SG. Whenever I try to create a MyCareer mode with a SG, THIS HAPPENS!!! What is up 2k? Why doesn't my game work like it suppost too? This happened in 2k12 as well. I am a little ticked off. Secondly, why in MyCareer does your team not want to shoot the ball. IS IT JUST ME, OR DOES MY TEAM NOT SHOOT THE BALL WHEN THEY ARE WWWWWWIIIIIIIIIIIDDDDDEEEEEE OPEN? Those are my two main complaints about this game. Next, I have a suggestion, when you are creating a team or playing with a team, I want to be able to create my own plays in a made up playbook, because nobody is gonna take the time to memorize a whole playbook of a team, unless you are an addict.
Rated 8 out of 10 by ProjectXSn1p3r 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.
Rated 1 out of 10 by dundeedm NEEDS MAJOR UPDATES FOR ALL THE BUGS
NBA 2K13 is the Windows ME/ VISTA of video games. Not since ET has a game had so many bugs and glitches. One of the worst is the (X) button will randomly stop working when you want to shoot the ball. In this case you have to try to use the shot stick (left trigger/right stick) to try to shoot the ball which doesn't work as well as in 2k11. They reaction time is much slower, you can have a maxed out player and be easily beat off the dribble as it reaction time between controller and game or just the lag in the game is very aggravating. There are a bunch of other glitches and multiple websites dedicated too all the problems on the web. Though the graphics are outstanding, the added "Flare" and garbage music takes up a lot of memory they could of used to make the game better. 2K Sports needs to get back to making great games, not garbage like this. Since 2k11 they have gotten lazy. Look at EA and Madden, its always about Football, the game. Not fancy designer graphics and garbage music and collecting coins to buy jewelry. If I wanted to collect coins I WOULD PLAY MARIO.
Rated 7 out of 10 by PanthersFanSteve Great game, VC ruins it for me!
I am a die-hard NBA 2K Series fan. I also have a great job that pays real money, but I can tell you that I am insulted at having to pay for Virtual Currency VC for use in this game. I paid $60 for this game, that's enough, unless you want to sell me some real additional content. This is by far the most petty and EA-like thing done by 2K Sports. Earning VC in the game is a joke, you earn it in tiny amounts and everything costs 1,000's of VC. The same pool of VC is consumed by all game modes. So, you can build a great MyTeam or MyPlayer, but good luck doing both without breaking out the Credit Card. Beyond the VC, the game was patched on 10-9, a patch which made the game slower and less enjoyable. Original gameplay was great, graphic have improved slightly and there are many game modes. I will wait on a new patch, but I really may have to go back to playing NBA 2K12. I really don't like being ripped off!
Rated 0 out of 10 by Breid98 Minor Changes?!
Are you serious?! 2k comes out with a new game every year with SMALL changes that SHOULD HAVE been just minor updates. The slam dunk contest in 2k11 was horrible: ( i cant remember if they had one in 13) the controls were so uncomfortable and weird and you had to spend like 20 minutes learning them. I mean really, NBA 2005 BY EA SPORTS HAD A BETTER ALL STAR WEEKEND THEN 2K EVER HAS... Im seriously considering skipping a couple games and waiting until 2k actually comes out with something worth $60. PLAYERS FACES: I noticed that some of the players faces looked WORSE than they had looked in the previous years... 2k needs to stop fixng things that arent broke... The only thing that half way gets improved is my player, and even that should be adjusted in small updates... I would wait until you could find a used version at Gamestop before you buy it so you could return it if you dont like it.
Rated 9 out of 10 by 242Sup3rstar Realist NBA Game Since 2K11 Buy This ASAP
I got this game awhile ago and it's amazing. This is the realest NBA game I've played since 2k11. They put in work on this game the players are more realistic looking as well as the game play and the player's shots too. Finally the Dream Team and the 2012 Dream Team are in the game as well as some classic teams even Philly when Allen Iverson played. Oh the soundtrack is sure to get you hyped . MyCareer or MyPlayer as most call it is better. Now you can purchase upgrades for your player and a variety of signature skills as well. However your MyPlayer is now paid with VC (virtual coins) I'd rather they pay us with money like in 2k12's MyPlayer did then we could purchase all the VC we want. Also the 2k servers are troublesome at times especially you play the NBA MyLife app or the facebook game and try to link your 2k account to collect the VC you earned. Other than that it's a great buy!
Rated 5 out of 10 by Nick12345 Great game plagued by glitches, bugs, and freezing
The summary says it all. NBA 2K13 is one of the best basketball games I have ever played. The MyCareer mode is brilliant and the controls are good. Can't complain about the graphics either. Jay-z's soundtrack isn't terrible but it does get repetitive after a while and the in-game sounds are stellar. So what makes this game bad? The constant freezing, the 10 minute load times (not an exaggeration), and the many bugs that overshadow the great qualities of this game. The worst bug happened to me which made me give up on the game entirely. My MyCareer save deleted itself after I was two seasons in. I desperately tried to find a cure to this bug but nothing worked. The most enjoyable part of the game for me, gone in seconds. I haven't played 2k14 yet but I just pray that they have fixed these issues so gamers like me won't have their experience ruined.
