Summary: THis game is hot, and it is a lot of fun to play. It is, however, WAY too easy. The first day I got it I lost all of my games, but once i adjusted to the shooting buttons, I became the master (which isn't that hard). I had an 81-1 season with the ATLANTA HAWKS!! In the game (and in real life) they suck! I lost by one point to the mavericks when i let my 8 year old son play! his first time ever picking up the game, and he lost 71-72.
Summary: Who designed this game? They didn't seem to get all the rules right. For instance what they consider a backcourt violation is totally wrong, when an opposing player knocks the ball out of your hand and you retrieve it in the backcourt, that should not be a violation. Get the rules right and this game could be better. Playcalling is also not so great.
Summary: I am a huge NBA fan, and I love NBA games... but this truly disappointed me. I think the price is about 5 or 10 dollars too high. Yes, it does have 2 player, and it's the only game I have ever seen the Skills Challenge from the All-Star Weekend, but it was not very entertaining. For example, you have to have 4 minute quarters in Season Mode, while in a pickup game, you can choose.
Summary: Once you learn how to play the game, it is way too easy. The online gaming is a joke because all you have to do is instantly pass the ball up the court and you will always be open for a wide open 3. An example of this is one game I just played online, he had one guy who had 66 points and I had one with 59. All of these point were off of wide open 3 pointers. There is no way to get back on defense and stop this from hapening so this kind of ruins the game.
