Product Description

With more than 5 million copies sold worldwide and more than 25 Sports Game of the Year awards won, NBA 2K12 was another monster release for the biggest NBA video game simulation franchise in the world. This year, 2K Sports has joined forces with the legendary JAY Z as Executive Producer to transcend sports video games and take virtual hardwood to the next level. Featuring an enhanced MyCareer mode and all-new gameplay features, NBA 2K13 will let gamers pit the best players in NBA history against the new dynasty of talent. A Jay-Z Production NBA 2K13 is produced by multi-platinum recording artist and hip-hop mogul Jay-Z, who presided over both the soundtrack and in-game elements such as menus, art and gameplay cameras.

NBA 2K13 is a simulation basketball video game set in the National Basketball Association. The fourteenth release in the franchise history, it has been the most popular NBA video game in recent years, and is the first to feature multiple players on the cover - Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder, Blake Griffin of the Los Angeles Clippers, and Derrick Rose of the Chicago Bulls. Additional features include: current and past NBA superstars, optional Kinect sensor support, new mapping of player/character moves to the right analog controller stick positions, dynamic shot generation, signature skills, a revamped passing system, and more.

5.0 out of 5 stars NBA 2K13: Another incremental step towards greatness October 29, 2012
Platform for Display:Xbox 360| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I was a big fan of last years NBA 2k12 release. As fun an revolutionary as 2K11 was, I felt like I was getting a more grounded and realistic game of basketball from last year's release. Having said that, things were still far from perfect. Namely, the control scheme was overly complex and defense was a chore and oftentimes impossible. I would find myself getting sucked into animations left and right, and there seemed to be no way to fight back.

Enter NBA 2K13, with a revamped core control scheme, and the difference is nearly night and day, in terms of gameplay. Moving the dribble maneuvers to use the right stick instantly improved my ability to take control of my character. Tutorials are still tucked and hidden away inside of a convoluted menu interface, but this is finally a control scheme that allows you to master it simply through use. With a new collisions system, on-ball defense has become much more honest and manageable. So much so, in fact, that I actually look forward to that side of the floor. This year, it's just as fun making a solid defensive effort (locking down a shot, boxing out for a rebound, swatting a shot from behind) as it is scoring points.

Jay-Z's contributions are superficial, at best, so if you're buying this on name recognition alone, you'll likely be disappointed. However, I recommend picking this game up, even if you own last year's release, as it contains substantial improvements in a place that counts beyond anything else: the gameplay.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great installment November 9, 2012
By Aidan
Platform for Display:Xbox 360| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is at least as good as NBA 2K12, with a few notable changes. Defense is much more difficult to play, which makes the game much more fun both offline and online. The other side of this is that the player gets to see a lot more explosive offensive plays, as defensive errors are common.

Dunks are much more common due to the difficulty of defense; I personally love this. They added a "Dunk Intensity" meter, which is a fun addition if you're playing against a friend or something. The 3 ball is also a lot easier and more realistic than in 2K12, where threes would rarely drop. You can now hit some crazy threes (including deep ones) even if you're covered, by using isomotion to gain a little room. You can also use isomotion to do some ankle-breaking crossovers, which look and feel great.

It's hard to explain, but the game just feels and looks much better than 2K12. Colors are more realistic and less cartoony. Players move much closer to their real life counterparts, and the ball handler will often use hand movements as they would in real life. For many players (Kobe especially), their shots actually look like they do in real life, as opposed to in 2K12. In 2K12, I have no idea what they were watching to try and generate the motion of Kobe's shot. You can also do some awesome dunks alley-ooping to yourself.

The menus are worse than in 2K12, but I don't think it's really important. The soundtrack is great if you love hip-hop (I do) but terrible if you don't. I also wish they would add a ranking system to the online games; something like FIFA would be great.

3.0 out of 5 stars Like the game but 2K sold out with the VC add ins October 4, 2012
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I like the direction the game is taking, the presentation, features, commentary, etc.. all great. But 2K sold out trying to be like madden, Having to purchase an armband or headband for 1000 vc points and still trying to build up your my player is plain stupid. I'm sick of games taking out content that is SUPPOSED!! to be part of the game and making us pay for it like its extra. Like i said the gameplay is great once you get used to the controls, but nickle and diming us with this VC crap is nonsense that should have never happened.

4.0 out of 5 stars Finally they made the game better! October 6, 2012
Platform for Display:Xbox 360| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is much better than the last 2 years' offerings.

1. You can now drive to the hoop and do some dynamic shots. This is all some players can do in the NBA. Not being able to do it in the game in the past took away from the true sim feel. If you are a true sim fan then you should appreciate the game more now. That being said it does seem a little over powered.

2. Players seem a tad smarter then in the past. This should be the case every year though.

3. Dream Team! All 12 of them are in the game and on the team. That includes Scottie Pippen who wasn't going to be included during the announcement of this feature. The 2012 Team USA is also on the game. Neat bonus to have both but almost pointless as there is not game mode for them. Other Olympic teams would have been nice or at least the 96 and 2000 USA teams. Don't really care about the 2004 bronze team.

4. Menus are nicer. Soundtrack is nice.

5 Jay-Z... Not really sure why he's in the menus or what he actually contributed to the game. If you're into that you probably like it.

6. Graphics are better but not.. It's weird sometimes the graphics look amazing and other times they look really bad. Overall I think it's better but some people look like they were hand drawn and others look photo realistic.

7. There are some bugs that need squashed and I'm sure in time they will be. The score overlay during the game does disappear. It has happened to me once in about 6 hours of game play.

8. I can't speak for Online gaming or MyPlayer mode. I'll give MyPlayer mode a try in the next month or so.

9. VC. Not Vince Carter but some weird Virtual Currency in the game. You earn it for doing different things that let you spend it on MyPlayer.
