Summary: NBA 2K2, for the XBox gaming console, is definitely a tune-up from the other games in the series presented by Sega Sports, with better graphics and more realistic gameplay (your players actually do miss shots and you can also block them ^_-). Each player seems to have their own personality, but the dunk cheers and cheerleaders themselves seem a little repetative. Overall, it is a really good try, and a successful one at that, with plenty to offer.
Summary: This is one of those games that are fun but doesnt seem to strive for excellence first off this is a prime example of underachievement. No xbox specific features found. Not all players look like their carbon counterpart. MOstly the graphices are good but arent that n=much better than the ps2 like it should be. In short the sound is repetitive, the announcers repeat themselves way too often. Also i found a number of glitches that freeze up that game.
Summary: Sega always brings it to the table when sports games are concerned, there's no two ways around it. While EA Sports is still the champion of the world overall, Sega doesn't just sit around being complacent with second best. It always tries to better itself, and NBA 2K2 is definitely an improvement. The sound in this game is what first caught my attention. The crowd is very intelligent and stays in touch with the game very well.
Summary: Graphics-9.5/10 Very detailed, except a few players are off.(Chris Webber)Sound-7.5/10 I'm getting sick of him saying That he "still wants guys like this on his team" But the sound includes the coaches yelling, shoes squeaking, and so forth Gameplay:8/10 The shotblocking isn't easy at all, and goaltending happens all too often, even on freethrows.
Summary: NBA 2k2 is an amazing game. The players, crowds, coaches, and arenas are beautifully rendered and created in perfect replica to there real-life counterparts. A lot of the moves and mannerisms are brought into this game and make the whole playing experience that much more interesting. In the beginning, you should put your settings on rookie just to get the ball rolling so you don't get run over by the extremely aggresive AI.
Summary: This game rules all! Its about time someone released an awseome basketball game like this. This game is hands down the best of all the basketball games i played. The graphics are good and the gameplay, i cant say enough about the gameplay. Me and my friends have wars in this game. We've spent many a day just battling in NBA2K2. I cant get enough of this game. This game made me feel better after wasting 50 bones on NBA Live last year.
The best B-Ball sim ever....but still a ways to go

Summary: Well, I have mixed feelings about this game. 2k2 has the best control scheme for the players and moves of any b-ball game ever. The variety of moves, dunks, and animation are amazing. This alone makes it better than the Live series ever was. The graphics are superb and the overall fun level is great. BUT, the difficulty levels are ridiculous. The Pro level is hardly a challenge for an experience Live or 2k1 gamer.
