NBA 2k13

Anybody who knows me knows that I am a huge NBA 2K fan and recently this Saturday got the chance to play it NBA 2k13 this Saturday for the 1st time. Let me tell you I heard all about the improvement’s that the 2K game developers made but when you play the game it is a complete 180 from 2k12. The Ball handling and dribble moves are much smoother with all dribble moves being moved to the analog stick for Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. Now it is easier and more enjoyable to get creative with your crossovers and dribble penetration. Also When you dribble the Basketball into a defender you don’t get that bump the defender actually plays with the Ball handler and allows the ball handler to beat the defender with a move and makes defending a lot more challenging. Take for example when I was playing my Friend Hamiyd and my Ball handler was Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Chris Bosh was the defender he was playing incredibly aggressive on MKG and I hit him with an in and out crossover to the left in traffic which led to a thunderous dunk by the rookie. In last year’s game that wasn’t possible because if a defender played you tight more times then not you would wind up dribbling it off the defender’s foot or getting the ball stolen. So the game play has definitely improved. Another cool feature is the dunk meter which measures the intensity of you dunks.

Another thing I always look for in NBA 2K Is to see what classic teams or what classic players have been put in the new installment of the game. This year 2k Sports went all out in that department adding some of my favorite players and classic teams such as Allen Iverson, Elgin Baylor, And the 2001 Sacramento Kings with Chris Webber, Bibby and Peja and of course it returns Muggsy Bouges and the 92-93 Charlote Hornets. But the most important addition was adding the 1992 Dream team and this years Olympic team to settle the debate between the younger and older generation on who is better on the sticks. The game all around is more improved and more enjoyable for all basketball fans and most importantly a hell of a lot more realistic. It is most defiantly a must buy!
