2K Sports Announces Unprecedented Partnership with JAY Z for NBA 2K13.
Artist and entrepreneur to curate soundtrack and lend artistic vision to world’s top NBA video game simulation franchise as Executive Producer
New York, NY – August 1, 2012 – 2K Sports today announced an unprecedented partnership with entertainment mogul Shawn “JAY Z” Carter to serve as Executive Producer of NBA 2K13, the next installment of the top-selling and top-rated NBA video game simulation franchise*.
“This has been a unique opportunity to collaborate with 2K Sports and be a part of one of the best sports video games in history,” commented JAY Z. “NBA 2K13 will be the next evolution in sports and basketball culture, and I’m ready to usher in the new era of the franchise.”
JAY Z’s interests and influences extend well beyond his illustrious music career as a 14-time Grammy award winner, as evidenced by his part-ownership of the 40/40 sports clubs and of the NBA’s Brooklyn Nets, having recently helped craft that team’s iconic black-and-white logo and visual identity. As Executive Producer of NBA 2K13, JAY Z’s artistic vision and style will permeate the experience, from the overall look and feel of the game, to the hand-picked soundtrack, interactive in-game menus and more.
“We aren’t content with just being the best, and we will continue to grow the NBA 2K franchise into one of today’s premier entertainment experiences,” said Jason Argent, vice president of marketing for 2K Sports. “JAY Z’s role in NBA 2K13 represents a unique fusion of basketball, music, art, and entertainment, and illustrates the evolution of NBA 2K into something much bigger than simply the best basketball video game series ever made.”
The audio and visual aesthetics of NBA 2K13 will reflect a balance of basketball and musical influences, with JAY Z himself hand-picking the game’s soundtrack. The 24-song collection features some of his top hits, along with an eclectic mix of music’s biggest acts.

2) game modes: career mode, progression, interviews, money, improving skillsgraphics
I love how easy it is to learn and get used to (even though there are some complicated moves!); how much FUN it is - especially against your friends, and how addictive it is!
In career mode you will continuously want to improve your player's attributes, but will only be able to do so by gaining money. You only really earn good money by training, completing challenges, and performing very well on game day!
The graphics are fantastic. I do not think I have ever seen a sports game that looked this real. The most impressive aspect of this is how the movement resembles the individual players' movement in real life. Facial expressions are very good too.
You can't be disappointed with the tunes of this game when Jay Z is the producer!
So, now that you know it's realistic, fun, addictive, has amazing graphics, and cracks out good tunes... and costs less than £25... what the hell are you waiting for!?
Anyway here goes my review.
Graphics - 9/10
99% of the player faces are super accurate and detailed and the coaches faces are much improved from last year and don't look like wax. The courts, crowd and animations are all improved, the only minor thing I can think of is the cheerleaders look terrible.
Gameplay (Offline) - 3/10
I was a big fan of Association on previous games but the gameplay makes this one terrible. I like player stats to be realistic but when you play a whole game and Andrew Bynum gets 1 rebound just because he isn't very athletic, is terrible. Also players don't always react on loose balls, steals and blocks are a lot harder than before which shouldn't be the case, jump shooting is too easy compared to real life and the same goes for free throws.
Gameplay (Online) - 4/10
The online gameplay is a little better than offline and that is because steals and blocks are a lot more frequent. Once again jump shooting is way too easy and because of this everyone exploits this and have teams full of shooters. Defense is pretty much non exsistent, opposing players slide through your players, 3pt shooters are left open alot no matter what you do and although blocking is easier that offline players seem like they are scared to block.Read more ›
I have spent most of my time on the MyPlayer section where you build your own player and build them up over time. It is immensely enjoyable working through games, learning and getting better. The game is very realistic and losing concentration even for a short time may result in your opponent scoring against you, so you do have to 'be there' the whole time you're playing.
Well worth buying!highly recommended!
Only problem with this would be that there is a bit of a learning curve for new players and the shooting gets jammed sometimes in the all star 3-point contest (maybe it's just my controller). Great game and i totally recommend it for the basketball fan!
