Excerpt: Xbox Screens(15) DC Screens(6) PS2 Screens(5) Screens(3) Can you say "Dynasty?" After two years of roundball domination on Dreamcast, Sega Sports unleashes its award-winning NBA franchise on the next-generation basketball court with "Sega Sports NBA 2K2." Building upon a foundation of vibrant graphics and crisp, detailed player animation, "Sega Sports NBA 2K2" talks the talk and walks the walk! High Pick and Roll? We got it! Killer Crossover? It's in there!
Excerpt: Without a doubt the most realistic basketball game out there. A never ending of options and gameplay. Franchise mode is next to none. Supper intuitive AI, and the zone deffense is a great perk. Sega continues the 2K series with a quality follow up to this franchise. Diehards will not be dissapointed. This is as close to playing in the NBA i'll ever get.
Conclusion: NBA 2K2 is a average basketball game. The game does certain things better than Microsoft's NBA Inside Drive 2002, but also is second to Microsoft's offering in other areas. If you have enjoyed the last few Sega Sports NBA games, you should also enjoy this year's title, just don't expect a huge change. I prefer NBA Inside Drive 2002 gameplay more than NBA 2K2; however, the amount of features, graphics, and motion capture are much more preferable in Sega Sports' game.
