Another Weak Showing From an Unevolved Series

Game Informer

  • Conclusion: Concept: Bring The Life back to NBA 09, only to see the game flatline on the court Graphics: Players glide across the court with this limited animation set Sound: The lifeless commentator should be shelved for someone with a pulse Playability: Scoring's a breeze, but good luck playing defense Entertainment: Buy a used copy of any NBA Live or 2K game and you'll have a better time Replay: Moderate

NBA 09: The Inside Review

GameSpot
17 October 2008
  • Summary: Despite the inclusion of The Life story mode, NBA 09's lack of depth and numerous gameplay flaws cause it to fall short.
  • Pros: Debut of The Life on the PS3 gives the game identity, Rebounding aid and skill-based shooting improve gameplay
  • Cons: Lacks effective defensive tools, Unrealistic game physics, Franchise mode is shallow, The Life storylines are too short and lack spontaneous feel, Fast pace doesn’t promote sim-style play

NBA 09: The Inside

DarkStation
14 October 2008
  • Conclusion: As I mentioned at the onset of this review, I have been a big fan of The Life in year’s past. This year I was shocked to find that they had broken it up into three different stories and for me although I enjoyed them I never really felt any connection with the stories. The rest of the game is really a slightly upgraded version of last years outing which is still enjoyable I am just ready to see Sony push a little further and create a complete NBA game for the PS3.

Expert Review

  • Summary: The Life is welcomed back with mixed feelings. While it's great that you get three separate storylines for three different positions, each one suffers in that full attention to each cannot be paid in terms of both time and drama. For instance, in one story I went pretty quickly from my NBA debut to winning the championship without much fanfare.

NBA Street Homecourt Review

VideoGamer.com
25 March 2008
  • Excerpt: While writing this I literally couldn't wait to get back on the court, and that's about the biggest compliment I can pay to EA's latest NBA Street title - schooling your opponents (or better yet, friends) has never been this much fun. Imitators beware: EA's stranglehold on the arcade-basketball scene has just gotten a whole lot tighter.

NBA 09: The Inside

Playstation Illustrated
15 February 2008
  • Excerpt: NBA 09: The Inside is still the only 1080p basketball game on the PS3, though the higher resolution doesn't help when the visuals don't look great. Players look good, but there are some noticeable shortcuts, such as dropping the amount of detail on players. Animation also has an awkward feel; players don't move the way they are supposed to and lack any sort of weight.

NBA Street Homecourt

Playstation Illustrated
15 February 2008
  • Excerpt: For a long time, NBA Jam was the arcade basketball game to play – at least until NBA Street came along, stole its thunder and delivered a swift pimp-slap for good measure. Although EA has tried to recreate the magic of “Street”-style play with other sports, basketball is the only one that seems to have had success. NBA Street Homecourt is the latest game in the series and the first to show up on the new consoles.
