Summary: I first picked this game up from Gamestop, reading reviews on how good this game was supposed to be for the psp system. I really though it was a good game for what its worth. I thought the mini games were fun though I wish they could get a dunk contest some time in the future. I liked the regular season gameplay and all the minigames. One thing though I have to say on the gameplay, is that its not very true to what the team actually plays like.
Summary: NBA 09 The Inside is a good basketball game for the PSP. Though very simple, it can be addicting. The gameplay is fun to play most of time, but can sometimes get annoying. The weak part of the regular games is the defense. Unless you get in a post or you are wide open, the defense blocks almost every shot, and even though you can sometimes get a lucky shot off, it can be very frustrating. Another con is the fact that there are very few replays.
Summary: Game play is fluid, graphics are great, audio is superb. Just a few issues 1 Rosters are incomplete and not updated very often 2 Officiating is buggy 3 No awards beyond All Star recognition 4 No create-a-player feature Overall game is excellent and very fun. The mini games are a good time waster however unnecessary.
Summary: This is by far one of the best basketball games I have ever played, but the thing is, it's the hardest I've ever played. In one 10 minute game Carlos Boozer (of the Utah Jazz) had 5 blocks, in a half better yet. There are a bunch of areas that just get flat out frustrating, (this may be that I am new to the PSP) but if you set those aside it is a great game.
Summary: A great game, but it has some disadvantages. The graphics are great on some players, but terrible on others. Some player's faces, like Dwayne Wade's doesn't look right. The easiest one to notice was that Louis Scola's hair is short (instead of long). Another problem is the player's number, take Ron Artest, for example. Instead of number 96, it's 93.
Summary: it is a fairly good game. although i have to say the roster is not complete. but they have good rookies like michael beasly and eric gordon. i recommend this game. The graphics are amazing its like playn on your tv not and portable game NBA live 09 is like flash back to the 90s graphics.
