Summary: Sports games usually don't turn out well and this game isn't an exception. For some reason it is extremely difficult to make a basket under any circumstance from any distance. This game has okay multiplayer but it's still pretty boring. It may be fun at first but it got old prettyyy quick.
Pros: Addictive gameplay, Just plain fun
Cons: Doesn't live up to expectations, It's boooring, Repetitive gameplay, Unresponsive controls
Summary: I am not a sports fan, but as soon as I started this game I fell in love with it. The graphics are beautiful, the sounds are lush and the controls couldn't possibly be more perfect. If only the announcer's comments weren't so repetitive. Still, that doesn't take away this games quality.
Summary: This game is awsome and its definatly the best basketball game i've played, tied for first with NBA Jam for the SNES. First of all the basketball-gameplay system/control system is so fun,well made and easy to learn. Second,the features are great(the ability to play in street courts and indoors,and espcially that you can build a dream team with your favorite players(Micheal Jordan,o ya).
Summary: The NBA playoffs on TV are usually the closest one can get to great basketball without a ticket. NBA 2K3 changes all of that by sporting the best sporting graphics ever seen. The graphics are better than the stellar visuals of 2K2, and the sound is beefed up by new commentary by the same great two-man crew. On the gameplay side, 2K3 has the exclusive ESPN overlays and presentation, which creates an even more authentic experience.
Summary: 2K3 keeps tradition alive, making sega's sports franchise the best on ps2. The gameplay is amazing, making things more challenging, for peolpe like me who felt 2K2 was getting a little easy. The gameplay sliders are the game's coolest new toy, making the challenge as tough as u want it. If i didnt compliment the franchise mode though, id be crazy. The way that u can control everything, from coach signings to rookie scouting is amazing.
Summary: graphics are good . unlike most basketball game..or any other sports game for that matter..the ball doesn't magically "appear" in your hands when you steal the ball. thye make it look like you got the ball from your oopenent. controls.you can totally school the guy in front of you and still take a nice dunk out of it.only problem is that the replays get annoying after a while but an excellent game.
Summary: FOR MY REASEARCH I HAVE RENTED ALL OF THE XBOX NBA GAMES...THE TOP 2 DOMINATING TITLES BEING OF COURSE NBA LIVE'03 & NBA 2K3. NBA 2K3 IS DEFINITELY THE DIGITAL FORM OF THE REAL THING RIGHT DOWN TO PLAYERS MISSING KEY SHOTS OR LAYUPS FOR NO REASON. SEGA GAVE THIS GAME GREAT DETAIL WHICH COMMMANDS ANYONE'S RESPECT EVEN IF YOU HATE VIDEO GAMES. I UNDERSTAND THAT FROM PREVIOUS REVIEWS 2K3 IS KNOWN FOR BEING TOO SLOW. *********DON'T BELIEVE THE HYPE*******.
Summary: I've played all of the NBA 2K games and it gets better every year. Funny when I'm playing it sometimes my godfather thinks its a real game. I still miss the old way to do the ally opps, but oh well. All the arenas look real and the players look so real, its freaks ya out a little. VC and Sega Sports just keep making the game better every year.
