  • Excerpt: Publisher: Sony Developer: 989 Sports Players: 1-2 Memory Card: 108-303 KB Analog Control Vibration Multi-tap 1-8 players 989 sports Da Introduction: When it comes to basketball and the PS2, there are only two games in town, 989 Sports’ NBA Shootout 2001 and Electronic Arts’ NBA Live 2001. EA has set the pace over the last few years but Shootout’s PS2 debut manages to close the gap at least somewhat.

  • Excerpt: When I receive a next-generation game to review, I have to contend with anticipation... and also a bit of dread. "New System X features the Evolution Engine, that, by using complex neural networks, learns your every tendency and then uses its amazing power and memory to evolve into a higher life form.

  • Excerpt: NBA ShootOut 2001 looks pretty damn good. Player models aren't perfect (there seem to be hunched over too far), but are very distinguishable as their real-life counterparts. The court looks just as good, and crowd animations are fluid as well (although randomizing would have been better). There is definitely room for improvement, but for a first generation title on the PS2, ShootOut is sweet. The music and sound fx are equally well done.

  • Excerpt: This paragraph shall be devoted to the good things found graphically in NBA Shootout, but it's going to be a short one. The opening video sequence is very well done; it's got a professional broadcast look to it. The video features different stars from the league, in a virtual city setting where they are larger than life. The players come out of the sides of buildings and dunk or perform their feature moves amidst the skyscrapers.
