NBA 2K13 Review: Shooting Hoops [Dealspwn]

Dealspwn writes: "The NBA 2K series has been so good over the last few years, that they've actually managed to dismantle their opposition. 2K Sports' franchise has been so utterly capable that EA Sports have refused to muster the anything more than the faintest of whiffs of competition. NBA Elite disappeared into the ether, presumably because it would have cost too much, the risk would have been too great, to even consider taking on possibly the most comprehensive sports series in gaming. NBA Live '13's return was pulled due to "disappointing" development.

But a lack of competition can breed a bit of complacency, and while this might well be the best basketball game around - possibly even the best sports game, full stop - it rests heavily on the laurels earned with past glories. (NBA 2K13, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 8/10
