For players who are used to the previous games in the series, there are a few new additions in 2K13. Firstly, for the console versions, you now dribble using the right analog stick, which allows for skill and ability to be reflected more accurately on the court.
As before, the game boasts an in-depth career mode, previously known as 'My Player'. Now it has been given a lick of paint and rebranded as 'MyCareer'. This is even more comprehensive than the series' previous version as there are multiple new features including enhanced off-the-court activities, a shop, and social media to worry about.
Another new mode worth experiencing is MyTeam. This allows you to manage your very own team, as the name suggests, and is perfectly designed to allow you to take this team online and play against others. For anyone familiar with FIFA or Madden, this mode is essentially Ultimate Team for 2K's NBA game, right down to the card packs you receive.
