When you play this game, you're going to be crushed in pain. The controls are hard to get use to and the I-ball(trick stick) will leave you with tears because of how hard it is to use. But after thirty minutes you'll love it. It has eye popping tricks and dunks that will leave jaw-dropped. The shooting is basically useless so you're focused on getting in the lane. On defense your going to hate it because the A.I. will just brake your ankles and put it in. But, after two hours you're going to hate it again. In the tour mode, you do the same thing over and over and it gets too repetitive. Overall, if you like dunks, alley oops, and tricks, you should play this. If you like cordinated basketball games, then don't even look at this one.
I'm sure that many people are skeptical about this game due to its predecessor, Street Hoops. That game sucked. AND 1 Streetball, however, makes up for the previous game and more. Mainly speaking, the AND1 tour! This mode's story is your character trying to make it far enough to join the AND1 tour. Once he does, the fun begins. You're playing with the best of the best of the AND1 tour. Main Event, The Professor, The Pharmacist, and more are right beside you. Don't let this get to your head though, as you will still need to compete hard for respect of your own. This isn't the only reason you should check out this game. Right after you pop this baby into your PlayStation 2 you have access to tons of ballers from the get-go. This game is so fun, you'll forget you're even playing a B-Ball game especially when you get caught up with all the trick combos you can do.
I really enjoyed playing this game. Many people said that it's going to suck because of the game before it Street Hoops. I dont know why all of the critics are giving this game a bad review. This is a real fun game.
