Good game, but NBA Live is a better choice.

  • Summary: NBA shootout is like all it's other 989 sports counterparts on the PS2, it's a good rental, but a horrible buy. The graphics are the same as Gameday'01 which makes it all right. The controls are good for the most part, but clipping is a big issue in the game, as every time you crossover near a guard, the arms or legs clip through the body. The Create-a-player is still good, as it gives you lots of options.

Stay away from this game!

  • Summary: This was absolutely the most frustrating game I have ever played. The graphics are great, don't get me wrong, but the controls and the silly things that your players will do with consistently were so aggravating. For one, every time a shot goes up, defensive rebounding is way too hard. Half the time your players will stand around dumbfounded and then maybe reach down and pick the ball up off the ground.

Don't buy it

  • Summary: First off the players hunch like someone dropped a piano on them. Running out for the tip off looks like the old man 100 meter race. The announcer repeating the same thing until i turned his voice off. This being a game where you buy it thinking it is going to be a good game, when in reality it [is not]. A game where Mugsy Boges is throwing them down and Matt Geiger is draining the 3's.

Why you should buy this game

  • Summary: For a basketball fan, I think you would like NBA Shootout 2001. There are many play selections such as screens, high or low posts, and pick and rolls. This game lets you have complete control of your team, and allows a lot more options than other basketball games. It also has completly updated rosters, so for those of you who like to play with your favorite home team, this is a great game. The controls are also very easy.
