NBA 2K13 has received critical acclaim and has a Metacritic score of 90 out of 100. IGN gave it a 9.1 out of 10 and said that "Even when left with a clear, unobstructed path to the basket, 2K13 throws down a monster jam with this year�s edition," and that "It�s obviously the best hoops game out there, and it might even be the best sports game of all, period." GameSpot scored the game a 9.0 of 10 saying that "Enhanced realism and a great new control setup make NBA 2K13 a fantastic recreation of pro hoops."Game Revolution gave the game a 4.5 out of 5 and said that, "There is no doubt that NBA 2K13 is one for the ages. Without any other true competitors to stand in its way, the sky is the limit. If you haven�t already picked up a copy, you are sorely missing out. I can�t ever truly say if a game is worth $60, but with this one, it might be worth even more." GameTrailers gave it a 9.1 out of 10.
