Summary: All I can say is thank God I got this game as a gift, and did not waste a penny on this piece of crap. I loved the idea of incorporating a "life" story to go along with a basketball game. Unfortunately, I think by adding this little ditty to the game, they decided to take major shortcuts with the rest of it. The gameplay is completely sloppy. Certain players (Lebron, AI for examples) almost NEVER MISS a shot, no matter how impossible.
Summary: NBA 06 is horrible. The game is not realistic at all. It feels like a streetball game, this is not an NBA game. Theres also no commentators so it gets boring real easily. Also, no matter what you do, its impossible to make the AI miss a shot. But if you want a generic "NBA" game that isn't realistic get this. I suggest buying NBA Live 2006, it's much better.
Summary: I couldn't believe it when I first played this game. I own both NBA Live 2005 and 2006. Because I love basketball and the NBA. But this game disapointted me really bad. Even NBA Live 2005 was better than this crap. The new Superstar thing is just so not realistic. Also there is no new dribbles. The new faces, or the rookies, have so not realistic faces. And their attributes are so crap. For example, Chris Paul in New Orleans sucks!
