‘2K13’ doesn’t improve much

Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. subsidiary, 2k Sports and developer Visual Concepts released its newest installment of the Major League Baseball game franchise called “MLB 2k13” March 5.
The game features Tampa Bay Rays’ ace starting pitcher David Price.
Price, the reigning American League Cy Young winner barely edged out Tigers’ ace starting pitcher Justin Verlander as the featured player. The commentary of the game is delivered by the trio Steve Phillips, John Kruk and Gary Thorne. Phillips is a former ESPN analyst and former General Manager of the New York Mets. Kruk was a former MLB first baseman and outfielder and currently works for ESPN as an analyst. Gary Thorne has been the play-by-play announcer for ESPN and ABC and has called games for the NHL, MLB, college football and college hockey. Currently, Thorne is the play-by-play announcer for the Baltimore Orioles and the Professional Bowlers Association.
2k Sports brings the “Perfect Game Challenge” back this year but with different rules. 2k Sports is giving out $25,000 for the most perfect game from every team. Then the top four qualifiers will play each other in New York during All-Star week for $250,000.
The My Player mode is back from last year’s game. The mode allows gamers to create a player to his likeness and work through the minor leagues to the major leagues and eventually make the Hall of Fame. Franchise mode returns where gamers can take over one of the 30 teams and work as a general manager to bring his team a World Series Championship.
MLB Today also returns, allowing gamers to play the games that are taking place on that day. If you have an online membership you can get roster updates as they happen and current stats.
If you have not purchased this game, just pick up a copy of “2k12.” The only thing new to this game compared to “2k12” is the Houston Astros have moved from the National League Central division to the AL West division, roster updates and jersey updates. The graphics have not improved from last year’s game and some of the animation is choppy at times.
I was expecting big things after 2k Sports improved “NBA 2k13,” but I was disappointed. The game is not bad, but at $59.99 it is not worth buying when you can buy last year’s for half the price.There is a two-disc set that has “MLB 2k13” and “NBA 2k13” available for $79.99.
