Summary: I bought this game used for under ten dollars so I wasn't expecting a great game but geez, no franchise mode, only one camera angle, and you can only create one player. I played it for a little while mainly because I could trade anybody from one team to another so I could have my own personal team (steve nash pg, ray allen sg, rashand lewis sf, kevin garnett pf, and marcus camby c) and I played the 3 point shootout (which was frustrating, here and there).
Summary: I'm giving this such high ratings because this game cost me less than a cup of coffee to purchase. But aside from the pricepoint it is seriously the most fun I've had with a basketball game since the one I've played on the Dreamcast years ago. It's definitely arcadey so one player on your team can win it for you, but that's the type of game I want. If you want a simulation, then please skip. The graphics are really good even by today's standards.
Summary: The graphics are great and the game is fun overall. However, it is a little annoying that the referees call things against you and do not on the other team. For example, when you are throwing in the ball, if you don't get it in in like 4 seconds it is a turnover. OK, fine, as long as it is called the same for the other team but it isn't.
