Summary: Combining the perfect blend of arcade and simulation basketball along with a host of unique mini-games, NBA 10 The Inside delivers an engaging NBA experience with quick action and fluid gameplay.
Excerpt: Sony’s recent basketball titles have been largely ignored by hoops fans, partially because of the consistent excellence of 2K’s games and the increasing quality of EA’s NBA Live series. Sadly, it’s also partially because Sony’s games haven’t been very good. This year’s offering for the PSP, NBA 10 The Inside , seems to recognize its on-court weakness, and supplements its inferior gameplay with a huge array of game modes and mini-games.
Conclusion: NBA 10: The Inside isn’t going to blow you away in any aspect of the game since it just offers a decent game of portable basketball that will be enjoyable by those that can accept its flaws. Just looking at what NBA 09 offered last year, you might as well use the $29.99 that you’d pay for this year’s game and get what is essentially the same game without the added fluff for a cheaper price.
