The best of the series!

Scorching the net with rim-rattling gameplay and in-your-face realistic graphics, NBA 2K16 gives basketball fans what they have come to expect from the stellar 2K franchise. The game does have its flaws, but the total package is well worth the price of admission – especially when you consider that this is once again, the only BBall game on the PC. 2K16 bombards your eyes with the most realistic looking player models and animations to date. Just like last year’s version, the players not only sport better animation but much better facial expressions depending on what’s happening in the game. Going up for a rebound, you’ll see players with their mouths open and preparations for a monster put back dunk. Other animations include the mean stare downs, the fist pumping and the confused look of players who swear they never reached in for a foul. It’s these little but subtle details that go a long way in providing both realism and immersion to the game.

How good is NBA 2K13?

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!

Bleh at best

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?

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

NBA game basketball lovers should own

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!
