Summary: It's a shame that this franchise was killed off due to not selling as well as the other two big basketball sports titles. Inside Drive I think manages to find a perfect spot between arcade and realism, it leans more towards the realism side and is a lot easier to pick up and play for newbies.
Summary: XSN (Microsoft's sports game label, which has also done the Top Spin and Links games for X-Box) excel in making a sport realistic, but fast-paced with an arcadey and accessible feel. NBA Inside Drive 2004 is no exception to the rule.
Summary: I have been a big fan of basketball titles evers ince my 1st on my Amiga(forgotten the name). This is my favorite so far. Big game plays with big name stars. The season option is good solid giving you the options for changing your game plays depending on the team that you are facing.
