I'm a huge fan of the NBA 2k Basketball Franchise. NBA 2K11 great game, NBA 2k12 Great game it may have annoying issues but great game as non the less. NBA 2k13 Spectacular game. But one can't help but worry can the NBA 2k franchise get any better or is this as good has it's going to get.
Well let look at the feature that was added in the past two titles and NBA 2K13. The 2K developers added alot of new feature over the last 3seasons in NBA 2k11 that game was mainly based around Michael Jordan. With Fun Jordan Challenges of his greatest achievement all leading up to where you can draft him to your favorite NBA team. So one would say could 2ksports top that feature. Honestly they kind of haven't. 2ksport tried with there 2012 title NBA 2k12 with a mode where you can play as many great legends and play there greatest preformes in NBA history such as Bill Russell,Magic Johnson,Karl Malone Michael Jordan of course Scottie Pippin etc.
The idea was great but it just wasn't as rewarding as NBA 2k11 Jordan Challenges. And what i mean by rewarding is you couldn't draft those greats to your favorite team like you could in NBA 2K11 Jordan Challenges. Addition to 2ksports not adding a feature like that in NBA 2k13. I believe that 2ksports may of reached a ceiling with that feature and couldn't go any further with it.
In NBA 2k12 Nike ID was added in which you can custom design a curtain selection of shoes in a color to your liking. To add in my opinion that was probably the highlight feature of NBA 2K12. How ever in NBA 2k13 Nike ID didn't really get a Upgrade beside that you can upload your Nike ID design to the Nike ID website. Any which that feature has been over shadowed by a actually Shoe Customizer Feature. So the Nike ID seems like another Feature that might have meant a ceiling and it won't get any better nor worse.
Gameplay wise NBA 2k13 Plays better then any NBA 2k past title. With the addition of Dribbling with the right analog stick instead of the left. To be perfectly honest Gameplay is probably as good as it's ever going to get. Of course there's annoying bug that can be fixed. But the overall Delivery will probably remain the same. And gameplay is somthing that every gamer looks at. And Personally I don't really see nor feel like that the gameplay is really going to get any better. So gameplay to me anyways as probably which a ceiling. And Visually that the game goes without saying. Compare NBA 2k12 & NBA 2K13 there really isn't much difference. But of Course there's alway room for improvement. But Graphically the NBA 2k Franchise is probably at the height of it's glory.
So Basically all im saying is NBA 2K13 was a fantastic game. And a huge step foward for the Franchise. I must Say each time i play it the more it feels like is NBA 2k13 a sign that the developer out done themselve to early in one season to the point in which gameplay & curtain feature areas has the NBA 2k series reach a ceiling where us the consumer won't really see or feel any great improvement to an already great game/franchise. There's always room to get better so i guess that what future console such as the PS4 & Xbox720 come in to improve the game to new heights.
So leave your thought & let me know what ya'll think. Has the NBA 2k Franchise Reach a Ceiling or is there alot of stuff that could be greatly improved.
