GamesRadar - It may seem hard to believe now, but a few years ago the NBA 2K series was known as just another good basketball franchise. Then came NBA 2K11 and the explosive Jordan Challenge, followed by NBA 2K12 and the amazing NBA’s Greatest mode. Both games took the sports gaming world by storm, which put the Visual Concepts team in an enviable position. But how do you top absolute greatness? The answer is, at least this year, you don’t. While NBA 2K13 is another stellar effort with a ton of fun stuff to do, it’s lost a bit of its soul along the way.
