Overall: This game has its advantages and also some disadvantages compared with other basketball titles out now. But overall its a great game to play with a good representation of NBA basketball. IF you play with your friends then this is a keeper. If you want to take this and run a team through franchise you might get bored after the first year. The new players don't have real school names. They uses schools titled "Acadamy of the Arts". And the stats aren't really in an organized fashion. But this game is still fun to play. There are many modes to keep you entertained.

Gameplay: Controls are just like the dreamcast version which are pretty easy to learn. But the AI is pretty weird at times. Sometimes they stand out of bounds when you want to pass an inbounds ball. Then my centers just stand there and ogle at a player driving to the basket. But the AI is also better in other aspects. It seems to figure out your defense and runs plays to find an open man especially when you run a zone. Game gets a little easier if you have carter or kobe because their crossovers almost always leave your defender 5 feet farther away.
The game calls goaltending a little too much considering a lot of the times the basketball just came off the rim. One thing that i'm disappointed in is you can't take your created player into a season or franchise mode only exhibition. Not sure how much sense that makes.

Graphics: Graphics are good for a dreamcast game but this is the Xbox. Graphics just don't compare with Inside Drive or Live. However the courts are pretty nice and theres actually some movement of fans when you're a visiting team at the freethrow line.

Audio: Sound is around above average. You have the announcers who get pretty repetitive after 10 games but you can hear the players and coaches on the floor. You'll hear it from your coach if you take an ill-advised three or don't pass to your open man. I love hearing the little things like the squeak of shoes or the grunts when a player runs into a screen. Sega definitely picks up the little sounds.

Suggestions: Work on the goaltending calls. And how come the computer uses hand signals when he calls a play but I can't do that. Please be able to take a created player through season and franchise and hopefully graphics will take a huge advantage of the xbox for 2k3. Announcers were ok but I feel they should have a couple more things to say. Good job but always room for improvement.

Overall Score: 8.0 / 10
