Overall presentation enhances the you-are-there factor even more. Much of the visuals and sound seem to have been carried forward from last year, but that doesn't make it any less impressive. Graphical detail is incredible. Players are almost photo-realistic, and they come with animations that almost perfectly mimic what their counterparts do in real life. Watching Kobe drop one through the hoop while falling down and then fist-pumping over the shot and the foul looks exactly like something you see at Staples a bunch of times every winter.

NBA 2K13 wants to look greatness in the face and laugh. This year all the stops have been pulled out and the road not taken is currently been walked on by one of the baddest—that is, the best—basketball games to ever come to town. Sure, there are plenty of areas that aren’t so great, but the completeness of it all will have you satisfied for months and still leave you screaming for more.

NBA 2K13 improves upon its already solid foundation of basketball gameplay and presentation, and turns it up a notch. Improvements and additions to MyCareer mode as well as the addition of MyTeam mode will provide for great depth this season. Beefed up presentation elements and always stellar play-by-play make this game really shine. NBA 2K13 may be the only sim basketball title on the console market, but it easily steps on the court to challenge for best sports game with its realistic depiction of the NBA.
