Good presentation but poor graphics and play control

C. Bryant, Amazon

  • 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.

very frustrating

  • Summary: At first the game seemed fun, and the 24/7 looked interesting, but as I played more and more, I just got really frustrated. I'll just talk about the training in 24/7 - it's impossibly difficult. Sometimes you are required to do a certain thing many times in a row, for instance, layup, but you can hit all the right buttons and the guy just won't do it, then you have to start over (think about the frustration when you have only one more to go but fail the last time).

BAD GAME

MJ, Amazon
30 March 2004
  • Summary: EPSN NBA BASKETBALL IS ONE THE WORST SPORTS GAMES IN TERMS OF GAMEPLAYING. WHEN I WAS PLAYING THE GAME, I HAD A HARD TIME TO PRESS MY BUTTONS TO PLAY. I BELIEVE THIS WOULD HAPPEN TO WHO HAVE PLAYED THE GAME. THE GAMEPLAY IS THE WORST, SAME AS THE PREVIOUS VERSION. THE GRAPHICS IS BAD TOO. THANK GOD I RENTED THE GAME FROM BLOCKBUSTER TO PREVENT FROM RIPPING OFF. IF YOU WANT TO PLAY A REAL QUALITY BASKETBALL GAME, TRY NBA LIVE 2004. I HEARD THAT IT'S PRETTY COOL.

What a Dissapointment

MJ, Amazon

  • Summary: I am utterly dissapointed in this game. The controls are too picky, passing is a pain, 24/7 mode is a rip off from EA Sports, and is extremely boring anyway, the dunks don't look that great, rather kind of cheesy in my opinion, and the music is so annoying you have to have the volume muted. Not to mention if you try a spin move, or juke, expect a charge call no matter what you do.

This game sux!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mark, Amazon

  • Summary: Dont waste ur money...Sega cant compete with Easports at all. The graphics are terrible, the camera angles r horrid, the isomotion mode causes u 2 charge in2 the defender 9 times out of 10, and the i cant reli figure out hw 2 change the length of the quaters. Nba live isnt perfect but it is certainly better than this game. the only reason y i gave this game even 1 star was because it reli looks like an espn game and the nightly wrap up thing is pretty cool.

Worst game I bought!!!!

Dave, Amazon
4 November 2003
  • Summary: I don't understand how any of you people would say that ESPN Basketball was a good game. First of all the difficulty settings don't even serve a purpose. there just there to look good because its all the same difficulty level. the graphics are the only things that are good in this game but too bad you cant see them during the game because the camera settings are garbage. theres like 5 different angels and 4 of them are from the sidelines.

Horrid

Mark, Amazon
4 November 2003
  • Summary: I'm not sure where to begin with this deadful game. I played Live 04 and was pleased, great graphics, easy to control, however this simulation stats and rating attributes were upsetting. So I bought ESPN, and man, am I upset. The graphics on this game are not too far up from Dwouble Dwibble. The game play and camera angles are the worst I have ever seen and the player motions and animation are Horrid (except in the instant replay which gamers never use)!

A big disappointment from last year's game.

IhateMTV, Amazon
12 January 2004
  • Summary: This year, the NBA 2K series has opted for a name-change. Yes, ESPN is backed by the ultra-popular Sega SAports (a detail which will cause many fanboys to automatically pick this as the better game), yet don't be so easily fooled. This game is very poor compared to 2K3. The gameplay hasn't changed much, but lots of little details have been horribly messed with (and you know, it's the little things that make up a game).
