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.

  • 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.

  • Summary: Hardcore hoops fans, lapsed b-ball followers, and anyone else who even casually picks up the odd sports game should play NBA 2K13. Developer Visual Concepts continues to keep the bar high, enhancing the realism of and adding a superb new control scheme to this excellent recreation of pro basketball. Pace, graphics, animations, sound effects, and commentary are all so dead on that you feel like you've walked onto the court at Staples Center or Madison Square Garden.
  • 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?

NBA 2K13 Review

2 October 2012
  • Summary: Knowing they've produced one of the best sports game series of all time, 2K Sports seems comfortable resting on their laurels, as NBA 2K13 remains great, but could have been much better.
  • Pros: The new control stick is delightful, My Player mode should be emulated by all other sports sims, The game remains the best basketball simulator ever made
  • Cons: The game fails to innovate on many levels, For the most part, the game is a carbon copy of 2K12, There is a Coldplay song on the soundtrack, No, really, Coldplay

  • Excerpt: It’s interesting that my character began with two left feet and was all thumbs, because I’m pretty sure I didn’t select those options during the player creation process. Maybe there’s a slider for that somewhere. Oh well.
