About This Game

With more than 5 million copies sold worldwide and more than 25 Sports Game of the Year awards won, NBA 2K12 was another monster release for the biggest NBA video game simulation franchise in the world. This year, 2K Sports has joined forces with the legendary JAY Z as Executive Producer to transcend sports video games and take virtual hardwood to the next level.

Featuring an enhanced MyCAREER mode and all-new gameplay features, NBA 2K13 will let gamers pit the best players in NBA history against the new dynasty of talent, including the much-debated matchup between the 2012 U.S. Men’s National Team and the 1992 “Dream Team.”

Key features:

  • A JAY Z PRODUCTION – Produced by multi-platinum recording artist JAY Z, who presided over the soundtrack, in-game presentation elements, and the overall style of the game.
  • IMPROVED GAMEPLAY – Featuring the Control Stick for enhanced ball control, Dynamic Shot Generator for more realistic shot variety, all-new Signature Skills and so much more.
  • MYCAREER MODE – Build your MyPLAYER by giving him Signature Skills, and acquire your very own animations. Includes new endorsement paths, all-new casual clothing & equipment, and much more.
  • USA BASKETBALL – Finally answer the question: Who would win a head-to-head duel between the 1992 Dream Team and today's 2012 squad?

Choosing a 2K sports game is like choosing an American president in the voting polls. You just try to pick the lesser evil, but chances are that you'll be let down.

I support this game, but only because I don't have a choice. Hopefully, down the line, 2K sports games will recognize that PC gamers just plug in a gamepad and then magically the PC is better than console. We are a legitimate demographic to target, but 2K marketing seems to continually 'drop the ball' on giving PC gamers the functionality we desire.

We'll buy and play your stuff. If only it were more pleasant to do so.

6/10 - Would only recommend as there is no competition, so marking this one a 'no', if just barely.

I love this game! It's amazing in all shapes and sizes! Even though it's 2 years behind it's incredible. It doesn't take a fantastic computer to run it. Personally I wouldn't use the keyboard and mouse. The controls are a little difficult to get use to.

NBA2K13 is the classic example of an "everything just worked" sports game. Ones that you end up playing long after the newer yearly versions come out. For me it's like Tiger Woods 2005, MVP 2005, or NHL 2002 - NBA2K13 is a game that will be played for a long time. Personally, buying 2K14 is a waste of money. More about the content, this is the best basketball game I've played since the NBA Jam/HangTime/ShowTime series. With great visuals and excellent controls, that are easy to learn but hard to master, the game leaves you enjoying the moments. Plus all games are fully customizable and there is every mode you could want. I always love doing the create-a-player mode, where you follow the career, and here it delivers. To end, if you want to play a basketball game on Steam, and have a controller, get this game.

If this wasn't brought to you by the best nba player of all time, jay z, it wouldn't have been ♥♥♥♥. But we have been blessed by jay z and his new corporate sponsor, bob dylan of bob dylan shoes inc. LTC.
