Summary: I'll keep this short. Are the graphics the best I've ever seen? No. The commentary and PA system announcements give a nice touch to the audio of the game. I like being able to skip to the playoffs without playing a season if you want to. Also, the Career mode is nice because it lets you play for whatever team you like. You really feel like you are in control of your created players destiny. It's nice to be able to create "yourself" and play on your favorite NBA squad.
