What a great game, I love the game of basketball and I have to say that NBA 2K13 truly feels real. The players are real, the crowds are real. It's all real. The shooting and ball movement are much easier now with the new analog stick, do you know how good it feels to cross over Lebron James with Derrick Rose?? Lovely. My only complaint about the game would be the soundtrack. Obviously Jay-Z helped produced this game but there is a little TOO much Jay-Z on it (it can get annoying.) I like other artists, I like other genres of music. More variety is all I ask. I give it a 9 out of 10.
So I'm not a basketball fan, other than Kobe Bryant, KD, or any of the other highly publicized players, I can't name who's the point guard for the Knicks or any other team, but I bought this game anyway. Why? because it's freaking awesome. Presentation is amazing, gameplay is fun, and the overall experience destroys any other competitor, from any other sport for that matter. 2k13 is a game you can honestly buy for nothing more than the my player mode, as the new features and little touch ups they did for the mode make the mode that much more fun. Little things like the twitter feed also offer some sense of liveliness to the virtual world, as playing great will have praise heading your way and performing poorly will cause you to be criticized and attacked by fans. Players also trash talk to, an instance is that Meta World Peace tweeted "@LightsOut5 (my virtual twitter name in 2k13) who!? Rockets ain't nothing." this is a game that destroys all competition, so hurry up and rent it
