Weak

Really?

No messing getting to it. I dont like sports games cause there is no skill involved. Its all algorithms. That being said there is clearly a algorithm way off when it comes to shooting. No bull. Its there, even if 2k wont admit it. I noticed when a full court shot was made even with good D. No bull. Yet wide open shots build houses. Go figure. Dont like having to listen to L. James every time i turn on the game. For real, it gets old.

Animations and stills are beautiful. Tons of customizations in huge amounts. The presentations are cool highlighting your career mode character...most of the time. Highlights of upcoming games, mvp, player of the month billboards. The list goes on.

Music and sounds. Epic of course. I mean Jay Z did it. Sounds are what you'd come to expect from a basketball game.

Gameplay. Alright, this is where things go way south fast. It took a while to get use to things. My beef is the shooting system. Wide open shots with feedback showing excellent and A+ miss, whereas feedback showing D+ or even F with poor make and ill never forget the full court shot. It tastes like vomit when you commit to a $60 title and you can see the error in front of your eyes. Its sloppy at best. Sluggish controls, non responsive, just bad all round. You see the computer AI doin things you only wish you could and it leaves you just wanting to attain this but you know you never can.

For the poor gameplay, it gets worse. The game is all bout the signature skills. It gives a sense of uniqueness to your character. However, its painful how long it takes to get there. with VC coming in tiny amounts per game its either grind or pay for VC. There it is. You pay for a game to pay to make your character awesome. Sad. Overall, If you like basketball this is all there is out there and its not gonna get any better. Rent it, decide, go from there. Thanks for your time and as always game on!

it is an absolute shame that this is the only real option for a basketball game. this game is pathetic. In my career mode it does not matter how good your rating are you can only shoot a certain percent and you can never make more than 2 shots in a row regardless of how wide open you are and how close they are.

Great graphics and good concept, but NBA2K13 is way better. The graphic have a lag to them, movements are to stiff. Shooting is way to hard to time. The greatest thing about the game is the new animations on just about everything.
