Summary: I recieved this game today and enjoyed the many different basketball games it provides. I plan to learn more over the weekend. This game was clear, no scratches and will take some getting use to (for me). I also ordered the Backyard Basketball and found that game to help me to play this game because of the Basketball level(s).
Summary: I thought I'd try this game, but if I have to spend more than a few minutes learning the button control scheme it becomes work, so I quickly shelved it. Maybe I'll give it away, but I only paid a penny plus S&H, so whatever. It looks like it would be great if I ever care to learn the controls...
Good presentation but poor graphics and play control

Summary: After playing live 2003 I couldn't belive how bad the graphics are on espn. The players are so small and rigid. I got my system hooked up to my widescreen and I can barely see the players. In live 2003 the players are bigger and look like the actual NBA player. It even has the mannerisms down too. For example playing Jordan is like you are Jordan. From the shooting style to when lands from a dunk, it looks just like him.
Summary: ESPN the world wide leader in sports.I love espn2K4 and now that it's july I still find myself playing through a franchise.The crossover moves are only difficult when you have a poor ballhandler.Live 2004 freestyle is in my opinion just about the same.You can get pass by using the crossover button instead of the right analog.The camera angles could've had a zoom though.
Summary: Well let me start off by saying this is by far the best overall basketball game I have ever played. It took last years game which in my opinion was the best game on the market at the time and made it even better. The game was virtually unmatched by any of the other 2004 basketball games when it came to extra modes such as 24/7 and street mode, and was really just in a league of it's own when it came to graphics, But there is always room for improvement and that's why I...
Summary: this is by far the best basketball game ever. even the back up players look exact. hedo turkuglu of the spurs looks way better on espn than on live. live has worst graphics and crappier gameplay. you can shoot lean over 3's with shaq on live, live sucks. espn is the basketball game to buy.
Summary: Espn Nba Basketball is a great game. It is very hard to choose between it and Live though. Espn Nba Basketball has rock hard great graphics, the players look exactly the way you want to see them. In Live, the animations of the players look a bit less accurate. Stadiums- In Live stadims are realistic as well as they look great just as the actual stadiums, in ESPN it looks great too and the people in the stands look alive and moving.
Summary: This is by far the best basketball game I have ever played. I have played nba live for the last three or four years and this blows every one of them out of the water. I tried this game and I could not believe the graphics and the control. It is like no other basketball game ever made. The 24/7 mode is unbelievable. It could be a whole game by itself. I will never by another nba live game from now on it will always be ESPN basketball for me.
Summary: Espn is defenetly the best basketball game. Its better then Nba live 2004 because it's more realistic and the graphics are awesome. The 24/7 mode is very fun and creating a Franchise is also alot of fun. Good camera veiw and easy controlls. I would defenetly reccomend this game to anyone who likes sports games that are realistic. also try the All-Star game!
Summary: I love this game. It has really good music and cool pictures. The computurised people look just like the real ones!!!!! You can do seasons you could do a francise.You can make it so that there are no rules! Are you interested? Well if your not, Losers don't buy it but, the real winners are the people who buy this!
