Excerpt: History Well what can i say about this game, When i first played a courtside game it was on the Nintendo 64 and that game was amazing great graphics with great controls. Game modes They are 4 different games modes with this game let me tell you a little about them. Quick play This where you choose your teams and head straight to the court for a game, you can play with up to four friends or against cpu oppontent.
Pros: good graphics
Cons: controls aint no where near as good as the n64 version
Summary: NBA Courtside is a stunningly average basketball game featuring a comprehensive amount of detail and a reasonable selection of play modes. I found the Arcade mode the most fun, but you need to change the game's speed setting to 'fast' for it to become enjoyable. As far as basketball games go, you could to a lot worse than to pick up a second hand copy of this for under a tenner. Just don't expect the world to be set alight.
Summary: NBA courtside had the potential to be a great game with amazing graphics unfortunately it only managed 1 of those things. The only reason I gave the game 2 stars was because of the graphics. The gameplay is appalling, I was bored after just 2 minutes but I carried on for about 20 minutes just in case it got better. Low and behold it didnt. The only thing remotely enjoyable about this game is the 3 point contest.
Excerpt: Hello there everybody, I hope you are all very well and willing to read a review by moi, now I’m no Kobe Bryant but I do like abit of b-ball or in other words Basketball to you non-slam dunking, alley oop-ing hot dog eating Yankees. So I decided to by NBA Courtside 2002 on the GameCube. I have owned this for about 2 weeks and played it often so I feel now is the right time to share my views on it. I feel I should start with the graphics.
Summary: This is a great basketball game, the graphics are amazing,the detail of the players, stadiums and players moves are like nothing I've seen before. I found that the commentary was quiet good compared to that of other sports games it keeps up with whats happening and doesn't get repetative. If you get bored of all the rules then the arcade mode will blow you away, it's fast and furious with plenty of crazy dunks and passes that you will want to replay again and again.
Summary: Well., what more can you want from a basketball game? This is my first and only game so far on my gamecube and as far as these kind of games go, it really pretty great. The graphics and game play are both excellent, however nba street on the ps2 which i played a month ago has to take the biscuit. Even though courtside is more reallistic, it is slower and not quite as zany as the ps2 contender.
Summary: simply amazin cos of all the modes, but i would prefer a different mode than 3 point shoot out, which you cant win. The arcarde mode is just fun, the hot spots bein the main reason, but also all the moves you can do, either wack passes, amazing freestlyin, or simply the phatest dunks around. The graphics are just as good as xbox, so all xbox lovers, uve been had.
Summary: Nice graphics, good gamespeed and a lot of time spend on the details. Realistic and a lot of gameplesure. Great slamdunks, also to see again on replay from all angles. You can also create a player (yourself for instands) with different hairtype, head, muscles, bodyhear etc, etc. You haven a certain amount of pionts to devide on your player on speed, strenght, shot accurancy, number etc.
