NBA 2K13 Review | Tech-Gaming

Although it’s regrettable that flashy embellishments such as modeling a celebrity team and an intricate show creation component were favored over giving the game’s MyPlayer mode a much-needed visual makeover, these failings don’t affect 2K13’s brilliant on-court play. While the title’s new control option requires a bit of devoted study, it ultimately provides players with powerful toolset- elevating Visual Concept’s superlative simulation. (NBA 2K13, PS3, Xbox 360) B+/A+

How's the online? last year I heard it would cut people off from XBox Live and it took 2K a while to patch it.

I heard some people are having a really hard time getting used to the dribble stick.

Well, the review said you can use the old control scheme. It's totally optional.

Improved dribbling it just take practice to get use. I got the game its good but here my pros cons

Pros
dribbling control
manual button bounce pass
Signature Skills underrated feature

Cons
Same play by play commentary *needs work
To much Jay-Z
To many knockdown shots with hands in shooters face
Online laggy right now
No online lobbies
No upload of sliders
No Crew
Online rank need to be revamped let players play on different difficulties an let player have a blacklist option block teams like Heat

Sound like except for the stick. 2K was slacking.

As much as I like EA, they provided competition for the developers.

I played the demo. I can live with my copy of 2K10 just fine. Maybe when this drops in price.

NBA peaked with 2K10. Jordon was cool and all, but the gameplay got worse, IMO.

I agree...NBA2K11 has to be the "peak" of the series...at least in this generation. 2K12 was definitely a step down. However, I just think that it was because they were having a difficult time trying to perfect a game that was pretty close to perfect. That said, 2K13 could honestly supplant 2K11 as my favorite. I am slowly but surely getting used to the added control of the "stick" and it really does seem to work better. Even more, they paid attention to defense and player tendencies...which we all know was needed. Speed is no longer the problem that it was. They added the timely bounce pass. So far, I don't have too many issues with the game. I don't play online...so I can't say anything about that.
