NBA 2K13 PS Review

About.com
4 March 2013
  • Conclusion: I have plugged hours and hours of my life into "MLB 12 The Show" and was thoroughly convinced that it would be the sports game from 2012 that sucked up the most of my free time. After playing "NBA 2K13" for just an hour, I wasn't so sure any more. Disclosure: A review copy was provided by the publisher. For more information, please see our Ethics Policy .

  • Excerpt: Do you ever glance at your old consoles and reminisce about the countless hours spent playing EA Sports NBA Live? Yeah, neither do I. 2K Sports has had a lock on the console basketball simulation market for some time now, and after last year's stellar performance in NBA 2K12 fans can only wonder how 2K13 can outdo its predecessor.

Review: NBA 2K13

New Gamer Nation
5 November 2012
  • Conclusion: All in all, the lack of any major innovation and the initial overwhelming depth in NBA 2K13 holds the game back; however, that doesn’t mean a fan should pass up on this title. 2K Sports has done a great job proving why they have been the top dog when it comes to basketball sims. Once learned, the gameplay becomes worth the price of admission and the time put into learning the game itself. Those that truly love the game of basketball will not be disappointed.

NBA 2K13 Review

GamerNode
29 October 2012
  • Summary: The NBA 2K franchise continues to dominate the market, but that staleness threshold that so many sports series face sooner or later is fast-approaching. Perhaps I'm worrying too soon, though – for now, NBA fans can purchase 2K13 with absolutely no reservations.
  • Pros: My Career mode is even more expansive, Top notch presentation, Same great game mechanics from past entries
  • Cons: Little in the way of meaningful changes, Needlessly complex menus

  • Conclusion: NBA 2K13 is the unrivaled (literally!) champion of NBA action despite some struggles with implementing a user friendly interface. Jump right in with you own player or run the court with any of the dozens of legends included.

  • Conclusion: Players themselves have had their ratings revised in a key area, as well. All of the top stars in the NBA, and even a number of role players and sixth men, are now given signature skills that better reflect their real-life traits. So you have the floor general, who makes everyone on the floor play better offense. There's the closer, who raises his game in clutch moments. The eraser sends shots off with emphasis.
  • Pros: Excellent game flow emulates the real thing, New right-stick controls make slick moves easy to pull off, Signature skills enhance player depth, TV-realistic graphics and animations, Lively, varied play-by-play.
  • Cons: Confusing interface, Overblown Jay-Z production.

NBA 2K13 Review

PlayStation Universe
9 October 2012
  • Summary: This game is massive. It will easily keep even the most hardened player busy until next season. Suffice to say, this is the new bar that any future basketball title is going to be gauged against.
  • Pros: Presentation, presentation, presentation - you are fully welcomed in, and embraced by the game's feel and looks, Motion, physics, animations are all spot on, The commentary is ridiculously accurate
  • Cons: Load times are still a little on the long side, Menus are not up to the same level as the rest of the presentation, Justin Bieber... really?
