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.
