MLB 2K13 review

I have played the game for a bit now and to me one of the biggest weaknesses of the game is the graphics. The players just dont look as nice as others in the sport videao game arena. Although they have made some improvements from the previous years MLB games the graphics still look poorly done and could use some work. The modeling of the players seems out of place to the rest of the game. For the most part, the gameplay is pretty good, pitching and fielding work smoothly and seem to perform the way it should. The weakness seem to be in how the ball performs when it is hit. It doesnt appear to be rendered accurately at times.

MLB 2K13 really seems add very little over MLB 2K12 and doesnt really make you think there is something reinvented here. There really arent any major difference besides the roster updates and improving the functionality of some of the gameplay.

Maybe for those that are hardcore MLB2K fans, there is something for you but for 60 bucks just for some minor upgrades, I am not so sure. Is it worth shelling 60 bucks to get the latest version.... well not unless you just have to have the latest version.

NBA 2K13 review

Hardcore hoops fans and anyone else who even casually picks up the odd sports game should play NBA 2K13. This version 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. Only a few issues with the interface and the absence of controller tutorials, along with ridiculously overblown production values from Jay Z, get between you and the full appreciation of what looks, sounds, and feels like the real thing.

The good stuff:

Enhanced realism and a great new control setup make NBA 2K13 a fantastic recreation of pro hoops.
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

The bad:

Confusing interface
Too much of Jay-Z

With this package, you get two decent games that are not without flaws but enjoyable to play at a discounted price.

I have tried mostly the MLB and briefly the NBA game. The truth is for the price it is a good purchase.
I am a big gamer so usually I can pick up on the game fairly quickly. The MLB game is a bit complicated
to fiqure out, the NBA game seems about the same to figure out. Maybe if I was 15 years old it would come easier.
But there are other games that are less complicated, like FIFA Soccer and College football.

I'm not much of a gamer, but I've played the NBA2K series before and love the "MyPlayer" portion of the game, where you can level a custom character through the ranks. Because of this, I thought MLB2K13 would be similarly as fun. While it's enjoyable to play for a short period of time, i feel like it requires HOURS to level up your player. I suppose it's because you're relying on your virtual teammates to bat you in so you can level up your baserunning abilities, but come on, I can only take so much. It is relatively fun though, so while I wouldn't recommend it as a stand-alone purchase, the combo is a good buy. NBA2K113 is great. Once again, the "MyPlayer" aspect of the game is amazing and I love hearing the commentators working in real-time. This game is definitely worth a purchase now that it's cheaper because of the new version, and because of the combo pack, making the price lower than ever.

To get two decent games for the price of this combo pack is a good deal. Shipping was quick and the game(s) arrived without damage. Overall very satisfied with the entire transaction.

NBA2K13 is great, MLB2K13 has so many bugs that it is almost unplayable including invisible walls in the outfield, npc's catching fly balls underneath the stands, and the player who bats after you in mycareer mode sets the record for most strikeouts in a season every year.

The MLB worked awesome I loved it but NBA wouldn't work long enough for me to start a game. So I returned it for my money back.

I really want to say that I love MLB 2K13, but it's basically MLB 2K12 with a roster update. Pretty disappointing stuff honestly, but it's the last (forseeable) baseball game on Xbox 360 so that's something to consider.

NBA 2K13 is great and it's a joy to play. My career is probably my favorite mode and basketball fans should enjoy developing their player for many seasons. I really wish 2K would have taken half the effort they put into NBA 2K and put it into MLB 2K, then maybe we would have a 5 star item here.
