Even though almost anyone who both owns a PS3 and likes baseball/baseball games plays The Show series, I still find that the 2K series has the most realistic mechanics. The graphics aren't great, the players glitch a lot, but the mechanics are still there. I've been a strong supporter of the series ever since I played the MLB2K7 Demo 6 years ago; I still have that Demo on my PS3, and I still play it from time to time, because, I think, having played baseball for many years, it still shines through with the most realistic player movement system. Over the years, however, I have noticed what appears to be a simple case declination in effort by the 2K team. In the 2K8 installment, the series showed that it was pushing forward, with the addition of something that may seem trivial, but, to me, it was a huge step: jersey movement. They attempted to make almost every part of a player's jersey move, depending on wind, player movement, limb movement, environment interaction, etc. Not to mention, they seemed to have found a fix for players magically going through each other, which has tainted a players' experiences in all types of games for years. They did so by creating a collision system. This means that, if you run into another player, they will collide, and fall/drop the ball, depending on who ran into who. After this huge accomplishment, 2K seemed to taper off, almost as if they had given up trying to compete with The Show series, and just continued to produce SOMETHING that allowed Xbox360 players to still experience a baseball game.

The other area in which the game/game series thrives is player data. The game updates player data EVERY DAY. Player data is not just statistics and rosters, it includes things like player tendencies, hot streaks/cold streaks, etc. MLB13TheShow only updates statistics and rosters, and, it only updates once a week. If I want to play my own version of a day's game, I play MLB2K13, because it will have the exact roster that the team's have (including injuries, lineup changes, etc.), and the players in the game will perform similarly to how they did/do that day in actuality.

In conclusion, MLB13TheShow LOOKS amazing, but MLB2K213 FEELS amazing.

I liked the mechanics and responsiveness, but still prefer MLB The Show for the better graphics and more fluid motions.

Awesome game! I love the "make your own player" mode! I DO NOT like how the field is flipped when throwing the ball though. Triangle button is home, circle is 3rd, X is 2nd, and square is first...kind of obnoxious when trying to do double plays and you get to mashing buttons. I'm getting used to it, but that's the only downside.

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 don’t 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.

Since 2k will not make anymore baseball games for now, it's going to be very difficult to find it in a retail store in a later time. So I think I will benefice from buying this article completely new; even though I never got grasp of the swinging stick controllers of the game. Thank you very much, i got very satisfied!
