But 2K and Major League Baseball struck a deal back in January which led to “MLB 2K13” being released earlier this week.
As much as fans are excited about the new edition of “MLB 2K” they should not be too excited because this version is the carbon copy of “MLB 2K12”. In fact, all the features from “MLB 2K13” are the same from last year and there are no new features to this game. There is total control pitching and batting which has been a constant feature to this series and MLB Today is back where fans can control the season in real time.
My Player mode is back where fans create a player and have them start at the minor leagues and work their way to hall of fame status. And then there’s the always popular Perfect Game Challenge where a gamer has a chance to win $1,000,000 for throwing a perfect game.
The broadcast team of Steve Thorne, Gary Phillips and John Kruk is back and those three are really the best thing about the game because they give good information about each team as they explain what happened to each team last season and what they need to do in order to improve.
“MLB 2K13” is not a bad game. In fact, it’s as solid of a baseball game as they come. But if money is an issue and if new features are the reason for purchasing “MLB 2K13”, buying “MLB 2K12” and getting roster updates is a better option because both games are exactly the same.
