NBA 2k13 lives up to the hype. The game has improved dramatically. Dunk animations are now gone. The game now accounts for contact on all angles including dunks, dribbling moves, shots to include the up and unders. The presentation of the game is great. One big con is that they changed the controls around to more of a NBA Live feel. Plus speed matters in this years game. Point guards will now outrun big men on fastbreaks..
Presentation is great, Controls are now more user friendly to new 2k players, Great soundtrack, Player models look great, The game runs very smooth and looks more real.
If you are a 2k veteran the change of controls is frustrating, Defense is a lot harder to play now, too much Jay-Z in the game.
Overall great game. Too much Jay-Z, and defense issues are annoying.
