How good is NBA 2K13?adrianching7 | June 12, 2014 | See all adrianching7's reviews »
This game is in my opinion the best Sports game out there. The fact that there are commentary from commentators that actually make sense and how realistic it is, It just makes you want to play more and more until your fingers bleed. The Controls may not be easy to pick up but once you get used to it, you'll be a top-class "God" in the game. As I said before, it's the best game out there and will surely keep you at the edge of your seat!

While better than 12, this edition of 2k13 still underachieves. Graphics are good, but gameplay in my opinion is terrible. The guaranteed comeback in every game is extremely frustrating. Even though I bought this game for $4, it still feels like a waste.
Really 2k?haider786 | Jan. 5, 2014 | See all haider786's reviews »
Sadly to say this game was a bust on pc. Once again 2k removes key features in this game that are present on consoles and not pc. The graphics are toned down from the consoles as well. I dont know why they would do this . Just pick it up for the console and you will be more satisfied. The pc version removes VC which is 2k's new currency. The online sucks and this game is just a No on pc! Spend your money well and pick it up on console. Pc= Not recommended. Console= Highly recommended

This is game fantastic for both basketball lovers and non-basketball lovers. As someone who experienced an injury during a bball game, I was able to interact with bball again through this game. The gameplay is fabulous and the gameplay is very realistic. However, the graphics (people) lower its realism due to the weird animations OCCASIONALLY. Overall, I think this game is well worth it especially when I got it for nearly $3.75. An NBA game that you should buy!

I have played every NBA 2K game going back to the dreamcast. I have always found this series the most entertaining and exciting bball game on the market. Animations look natural, commentating is pretty good, and the dunks are exciting. The presentation is okay. The intros leading into the games are pretty good, but the generic half time show doesn't match it. The coaches on the sideline look strange sometimes too. They always seem to have a blank awkward stare on their faces. I feel like the cpu defense has been dulled down a little compared to 2k11 & 2k12. It makes for a more enjoyable experience and exciting plays, but games are still competitive. I managed to grab this during a 24 hour sale for $4 so I feel like I easily got my moneys worth :) I would give it a 90, but I'll have to drop it down to an 85 just because they feature Justin Bieber in the game...
