2K Sports has improved on the gameplay of 2K12. The addition of the extra moves you can do will keep defenses honest.

Playing as some of the NBA Greats in action is awesome, but some characters could have been combined to use other stars. Combining Stockton & Malone would have worked to free up that extra slot for some one like Barkley.

The online play and the Association would make for great competion if not for one troubling aspect. FREEZING. The game freezes constantly in the Association if you change uniforms, so I didn't. The glitching of the announcers commentary made the gameplay stall at times. I had a difficult time dowloading shared rosters, so I let the computer generate rosters in my Association. After a couple of seasons, everybody looked the same; No matter the race.

Don't get me wrong. By the sound of the review, you'd think I hated the game but that is not the case. I enjoyed the game WHEN IT PLAYED CORRECTLY.

Instead of making new moves and spectacular dunks, 2K needs to work on the look of the AI, and the constant freezing and glitching must be addressed.

Final Review:

Visuals: 8.0/10
Gameplay: 7.5/10
AI intel: 8.5/10

Overall Satisfaction: 7.0/10 This would be an 8.0, however I must deduct 1pt for the constant gliching and freezing.
