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.
