Summary: bottom line, its the most fun basketball game i've ever played. i bought it in dec 2002, and have logged a full 82 game season with playoffs (10 min 1/4's) plus at least 100 games against human players. the copy i bought had a couple of bugs, every once in a while the ball would fly off a player 100 feet in the air, and sometimes the game itself would freeze. despite, the game gets five stars, and here's why. -realistic.
Summary: My six year old and I play this game quite often. There is a slight learning curve (my son was shooting when he meant to be passing) but it isn't too rough. I've seen more complicated games. This game is pretty fun. The biggest thing I like about this game (what sold me on the game) was my ability to play on the Internet. So after I picked this up I told my brother in the next state to pick up a copy as well and we've met online a couple of times to play a quick game.
Summary: This game is tight. It's the best basketball game I've ever played. Before I rented this game at Blockbuster, I thought that it was gonna be like other basketball games I've played, boring and stupid. I rented it anyways, and I was surprised. I loved it. The gameplay is so realistic. The graphics are real good, too. You can choose from the best teams in the NBA, like the LA Lakers, New Jersey Nets, Boston Celtics, San Antonio Spurs, etc.
Summary: I wish that people would spend more time playing the game before they write an interview. If you read anywhere that alley-oop dunks are an impossibility in NBA 2K3, please ignore this. The only reason that you might see this being said is becasue alley-oops are not nearly as frequent or easy to pull off as in 2K2, in which game dunks and alley-oops alike were unrealisticly frequent. Anyway there are more injuries which is fun.
Summary: Ok i know some people have been bad mouthing this game so i decided to write my own review. First off i want to say that i own both NBA Live 2003 and NBA 2k3. I recommend NBA 2k3 for numerous reasons. The first reason is because NBA Live 2003 is ungodly easy. All you have to do is press the L2 button and it throws it all the way down court. Another reason is because in Live 2003 there isnt solid commentary and the pace of the game is way too fast for an NBA Game.
Summary: Okay, I've been playing basketball video games for a very long time (since NBA Jam). I think this game is truly one of the best basketball simulations that I have ever seen. Being a highschool basketball player I've noticed that the players movements and crossover moves are very realistic as well are the shots. There are several modes of game play to enjoy and you can increase player's stats by playing in practice mode.
Summary: One thing that I have to say to start my review off, is that I am a serious gamer and I have been one sinse I was 6 years old. On that note I am a big fan of the sega sports 2k series, and this game is no exception. I am hearing complaints about the passing. This I was frustrated with until I went to the options screen and saw the option that said maximum passing.
Summary: This game is amazing! When ever I like to play this game all I have to do is challenging people online! There is no more of begging and asking my busy friends to come over and play. It is now their options. Despise of how people say about the flaws in the game, I still think it is the best game out there.
Summary: Awesome Game! The graphics are Great! The game play is alil slow but ya just need to play it...then you'll get used to it. Great Game. Ne one that likes basketball should def. should get this game! Way Cool!
