Excerpt: Every now and again, a sports series comes along and redefines the way we play our favorite pastimes, forever changing what our idea of a sports game can be. Sega's 2K series is one fine example, as well as the Tony Hawk Pro Skater franchise. These games revolutionized multimedia sports entertainment. Of course, not every series that comes along is able to recreate such magic, and ESPN's NBA 2Night series is a classic example.
Excerpt: It seems the buzz concerning basketball games is usually centered around two companies: EA and Sega. When you think of Konami, games such as Metal Gear, Castlevania, or Dance Dance Revolution may come to mind. So it’s no wonder that the association of sports and Konami may seem a bit of an afterthought. Oh sure, Konami did have the NBA In The Zone series that graced the PSX and N64, but in reality that series fell short of greatness and was scrapped.
Conclusion: En raison de ses nombreuses lacunes et approximations ESPN NBA 2 Night 2002 ne tient absolument pas la distance face aux poids lourds de la discipline. Mieux vaut donc se tourner vers le très arcade NBA Street ou vers la valeur sûre NBA Live. Une autre option consiste à attendre le plus que prometteur NBA 2K2.
