Summary: Forget any of the NBA Live games,or any of the NBA games that Sony made...also forget about the newer NBA 2K games on the PS2.Such as NBA 2K8-12.All those were watered down crap.This game right here,NBA 2K5 was and STILL IS The best NBA Basketball game on the PS2.It may be older now,and the rosters are all outdated...but this game is still SO much fun to play.Plus it is dirt cheap,so pick it up,and leave all those other NBA games alone.THIS IS THE ONE TO BUY!
Summary: Reviewed for Big Boss Games by: PK The Green Usually when I spend $20 for a game it's used, greatest hits, or horrid. This one is none of the aforementioned. ESPN NBA Basketball 2K5 by Take 2 Interactive is brilliant in many ways. First off, I was amazed to see they allowed me to create my own shoes. A sign of a true Superstar is their very own signature kicks. The presentation lives up to the ESPN tagged to the name.
Summary: here we go. first game. woohoo bought a game for 20 bucks. and guess what? its very very exciting. i started out as the kings playing the pacers in an 8-minute per quarter game. it was wonderful. very challenging, the game was realistic, graphics that were pretty good, and i loved the game. i didn't even win! 84-82 indiana on a last second three pointer in conseco (note, i would have won, except for something i'll say later). now, i do that again tomorrow.
Summary: I love this game! But, and this is a big but...I recently made it to the Finals in my "Association" mode and for some reason, cannot play the Finals. The game just does nothing when I click on "play game" Has anyone else had this problem???????? This is very frustrating and unless it is just my game, would make this not worth the purchase!!! 1 star for this game, until I fix this!!!!!!!!!!!
Summary: I own ESPN NFL 2K5 and did own NHL 2K4. NFL was and is the best out there. Or at least until EA kidnapped the NFL. But NHL was crap. Better luck next time boys. Back to NBA 2K5, I got this at eb for $9.00. Cant pass that up. The game play is pretty sweet. Camera angles suck somewhat. A little tweeking of the game options and it can be a good challenge. I like the fact that the a.i. does play catch up and tries to keep the game close. I hate wining everytime. It gets old.
Summary: even though i have not yet played this game, i can tell that it is about basketball. just look at the title for crying out loud. basketball is a game about hoops and nets. yea, even tall men and teams that compete to score and win. it's a game of dunks and slams, of rebounds and assists, of free-throws and 3-pointers. yes, this is a basketball game that is cheap. it is inexpensive. and besides that it doesn't cost very much.
Summary: [...]. I could go on and on about the dumb points of this game but I'll just give you the basics. 1. The number 1 reason I hate this game is because you can never hold a lead. If you ever get a lead, no matter how large, the computer will always come back, making these ridiculous shots along the way. Then, when the computer gets the lead back, it goes back to normal and they actually start missing shots again.
Summary: This is the worst basketball game I've played in years. For one they have no season mode, just the association which is pretty stupid because you can only control one team and it is pretty pointless. Everytime you leave a guy opened for three he'll make it which doesn't happen in real life and I left Shaq open for 4 threes and he made all of them, pretty unrealistic. Everytime I tried to dunk it gets blocked or I miss it.
