Calvin Kemph, Thunderbolt writes: NBA 2K13 is intent on keeping the hot streak going. There are the base concerns with any sports thing; a few fundamental mechanics are stirred in, a new control system introduced, and a slew of small changes. 2K remains adamant about labeling the new on menu while quietly addressing less impactful changes. It’s mechanically fine and how you want it — like last year, but hey, there are a couple new control stick ideas. The mechanics feel like basketball and like any good game, it’s easy to forget that you’re playing one. It’s all fairly intuitive.
