"The best basketball game I've ever played. I hate them too."
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I bought this game because it was spectacularly cheap, and I like sports games. I don't like basketball games, but this is pretty damn amazing… the controls are intuitive, and once you get the hang of the terminology, it's INCREDIBLY addictive. Buy it if you like sport. Period.

"Awesome sports game"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Nothing overly groundbreaking, but definitely a solid buy. Fun, addictive, fairly realistic, it's everything you want from a sports game. Great for both single and mulitplayer, the MyCareer mode is, in my opinion, one of the better career modes in sports games today. Points deducted for putting Coldplay into a sports game. Points added for letting Bow Wow (1.73m) do dunks. Tl;dr, get this game, you won't regret it.

"Not bad"
3 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Exactly that, but not good either. I found the controls could have been better managed and mapped as you can tell that they took the exact layout from PS and Xbox, for instance you make selections by pressing the B button instead of the A button, most likely because this is where X would be on a PS controller (the button most often used for making selections).

A simple thing like that bugged me and I couldn't undo my natural instinct to press the A button on the Wii U GamePad so from a usability pont of view its bad, very bad, one of the worst!

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.

  • A JAY Z Production – NBA 2K13 is produced by multi-platinum recording artist and hip-hop mogul JAY Z.
  • Gatorade Biometric Scan (Exclusive to the Wii U) – Think you have a feel for how your player is performing? Think again. The Gatorade Biometrics display provides an up-to-the-second look at your player's mood and fatigue level in the game. A persistent “heartbeat” and dynamic hot/cold zones will keep you in tune with your player's psyche as the game progresses.
  • USA Basketball – Finally answer the question: Who would win a head-to-head duel between the 1992 Dream Team and the 2012 squad?
  • MyCAREER Mode – Build your MyPLAYER by giving him signature skills, and acquire your very own custom animations using Virtual Currency (VC).

  • The Control Stick: For the first time ever, all dribble moves have been mapped to the right analog stick, as well as shooting, passing, and post moves. String together devastating crossovers and clutch shots for maximum control and effectiveness.
  • Dynamic Shot Generator: Shots are now dynamically created on the fly, with all-new collision physics created in real-time.
  • Signature Skills: Each player has unique abilities that can alter the course of a game.

  • Revamped Passing System: Improved fast break passing gives players more control. Fire a bounce pass to a cutting teammate or go “Lob City” in transition.
