Gimpy PC version is gimped,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: NBA 2K13 (Video Game)
It's a real shame to buy a PC version of the game and realize its missing half of what console users get, but thats what happens once you buy NBA2k13 for PC. Gameplay sucks with keyboard and mouse, theres severe lag between commands and response, but its decent if you buy or have an Xbox USB controller. There are some obvious bugs that should never have made it to release, and there are other bugs that you dont find out about until you get deeper into the game.
The game is supposed to be integrated with an App for your phone, and with the PC version its not. Its also supposed to update the NBA2k13.com site with information on your MyPlayer and Associations and it doesn't. The default roster is missing players. The updated rosters are still missing players.
Game modes that exist for consoles dont exist for PC. So you arent able to participate in things like the Virtual Currency market or download the All-Star game content, or use the MyTeam feature, which again, really sucks.
I feel like I got ripped off. Id love to continue supporting the development of this game for the PC platform, but not if I'm going to get half of a game. I had pre-ordered the digital download version, only to be told the day before it was shipped that the download version would be available on October 15. Then I saw that date got pushed to October 31st. That kinda sucks. So I had changed my order to get a DVD copy which cost me more in both shipping and price and it got there 14 hours after I technically should have been able to download it and play. The other major drawback to the DVD version is that it needs to be in the dang computer to load the game (come on guys, thats so 1990s).
All in all, im dissapointed. Its a great title, Visual Concepts does a great job developing the game, but they really need to offer a full version for PC users. This whole full price for half a game and getting treated like a red headed step child is really disheartening. Take Two will really have to earn my business if they want me to buy NBA2k14.
