Summary: This game is the bomb. Don't listen to the people who say there is no turbo, just use the analog stick.It has incredible graphics and great moves. The only flaw is that it is a little bit to easy, but other than that, you should buy this game.
Summary: People, don't buy this game...it sucks!!! I love ESPN but their videogames .... Let me tell you some of the flaws in this game...no speed burst, you have to hold an extra button just to pump fake a shot (most games you need just to tap the shoot action button), and the colors are too dark. The default control is placed in a way where it's difficult to learn the game. The only plus to this game is that it has pretty good graphics. Don't waste your money buying this game.
Summary: This is by far the best bball game on Ps2 but its no Nba 2k1.The only thing i am mad about are its gameplay is not as slow as people say it is but its not very smooth. The crossover is not that good and some of the shots like the fade away looks mest up and there is no lockerroom sequences and tatoos like they advertise. The graphics are really good, there as good or better then nba 2k1.
Summary: This game to sum up in just a couple of word: "Don't waste your money!" I have no idea how these other people gave it a good review, this is the worst basketball game, wait.... worst sports game, wait....worst game I have ever played. There are only 4 different kinds of moves that you can use, PS1 and Sega had more moves with less buttons than this game. It is probably the hardest game to navigate around, and you can't even tell what you are trying to do in this game.
Summary: Nbalive2001 is great and nba hoopz kicks a$$. but this game just doesn't do it for me. i'm a serious gamer and i have hoopz and live and this game deosn't even come close.(i rented it). I know live doesn't have franchise mode but at least they didn't advertise it then not put it in the game(like nba2nite did). graphics are nothin to do a dance about and gameplay is horrible. But as i have read some people have found to enjoy it.
Summary: OK..I've been buying EASPORTS NBA Live series since..well..since a long time ago...and I have to admit when I rented NBA LIVE 2001 for PS2 I was less than thrilled...I actually like the PS version better..and certainly it couldn't compete with Dreamcast NBA2k1. So on a whim I bought NBA2night and I have to say I'm pretty darn pleased. It FEELS more like an NBA game than LIVE...yeah I miss the turbo mode...yeah, it's slower pace and not as smooth sometimes..
Break out the thesaurus-putird, awful, dreadful, ghastly..

Summary: Folks, I cannot begin to adequately articulate my displeasure with this game. It is perhaps the WORST video game I've ever played, and that includes the basketball game for the original Atari 2600. Okay, maybe it's not quite that bad. The graphics are better with ESPN NBA 2Night. But my expectations for the old 2600 basketball don't come anywhere near what I expect from a "sports sim" (and I use that term VERY loosely here) for the so-called Next Generation of video...
Summary: This game is a pretty solid game. The graphics and play animations are really good. Many of the faces are correct, as well as the body shapes, mainly a star or two from each team looks really correct. You can add features to all your favorite players that you know they have such as there hair style, sweat bands, knee braces, sock length, head band, or elastic bands for their wrists, which is cool. The announcing flows pretty well, but sometimes they do get repititve.
Summary: Don't buy/rent this game. It is bad. The control is awful, players stop moving completely when they come into contact with an opposing player. Secondly, they will not move after you fake out a defender, the "killer cross-over dribble" is far from "killer". The create a player is cool, but the gameplay is awful. There is no draft like advertised.
Summary: This game is terrible, I don't know how anyone could give this game 5 stars and that people reading give them good votes, if you don't know how bad this game is don't vote YES! This is terrible, it is extremly easy for the ball to be stolen, the players son't look like they look like in real life, only a little tiny bit. The game is horrendously slow, it's like playing NBA2K1 in slow motion, really.
