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. A Jay-Z Production NBA 2K13 is produced by multi-platinum recording artist and hip-hop mogul Jay-Z, who presided over both the soundtrack and in-game elements such as menus, art and gameplay cameras.
Awesome graphics, Lots of bugs
Pros: The graphics are awesome. The players look amazing. There are tons of options and game sliders. I play in a fantasy league with a few of my friends once a week. We pick the top ten teams and write them on a quarter and draw them randomly from a plastic cup. You control the team you pick. This game is very fun but also very frustrating at times.
Cons: Online play is laggy. The controllers have a slight lag to them which makes the game barely playable. There are glitches like the scoreboard disappearing, when a player cuts to the basket about 95% of the time if you try passing him the ball it gets stolen. One one one defense is very difficult. You miss a free throw when it says A- but make one when it says C-. If the ball so much as hits an opponents leg its a kicked ball. You can push the opposing player out of bounds pretty easily. The computer determines way too much of what's going on. Sometimes you feel like you're always playing against them when you are playing against someone else.

Pros: This isn't actually a review as I haven't played the game yet, but I just wanted to thank Hietala217 for posting an exceptional review of the game. It gave me a much better overview of the game compared to most review sites out there. Now i'm definitely picking this up. Thanks bud.

Solid Title With Many Improvements
Pros: With a decent PC (using an i7 950 @ 3.07ghz, 12gb ram, 7850 graphics card) and putting the graphics to max it's vastly superior to the console versions.
Cons: The new physics engine while nice causes some things to happen that are completely baffling. Players getting 'stuck' on one another, which leads to easy shots for the opposition.
Other Thoughts: Most of my cons are personal gripes, but valid ones in the global scope of the game. Even with those cons I mentioned, I am enjoying NBA 2K13 as much and more in many ways than I did 2K12 and I poured easily 200-250 hours into it over the last year.
