Overall: Basically at this moment of time, you have three nba games to choose from (I think maybe ESPN is releasing another one soon though)... Nba Live, Nba Inside Drive and Nba 2k2. Since I only had Live, and 2k2, i will comment on them. Basically you cannot go wrong with exchanging Live for this title.. they are TWO totally different games (2k2 being WAY better). AI and gameplay are miles ahead of what EA has produced.

Gameplay: The button layout is practically like the Dreamcast version so there's not much of a problem here. You can easily turbo, post-up, pass and shoot... though passing still sometimes goes to the wrong players (guess you have to rely on icon passing?).

Lots of different modes to play from including street ball, franchise, and season. One thing i've noticed is that even though i'm playing 5 minute quarters (so my scores average about 50 points), other simulated cpu games have scores in the 100's. I think this messes up the stats if you're trying to go for something like top scorer (i'm not totally sure on this though).

Teammates will run picks for you and such.. and they will switch if you get caught, cool! Some flaky stuff with goaltending calls though... they happen if you're just grabbing a rebound on occasions!!

Graphics: The graphics look pretty decent in this game but i wouldn't say it's anything mind boggling. I actually thought the renderings of the players in NBA Live were better cuz they seemed more lifelike. Nonetheless the animations are well done and you'll enjoy watching your player pull those cross-over, spin moves around your opponents!

Audio: Crowds chant for their team and players commend each other on good plays. Commentary isn't the greatest but will do as there are slip ups now and then. I wish they also announced the game with more enthusiasm!!

Suggestions: the commentary could use better spicing up... and fixing minor AI problems (goaltending problem big fix). Also, with all the buttons on the controller i should be able to call more plays on the fly than just four!

Overall Score: 9.0 / 10
