First of all I’m not a big Basketball fan but this game is defintily an improvement from NBA’s game(Live 06). In this ‘review’, I am not going to give an opinion of the game other than what I just said, however, I will let you know how to earn 1000 points in 40 minutes or less.
First of all it’s important that you know this game has a stat altering function in that you can make your team perfect. Some people have reported when they altered the stats they do not get the achievements…I found out that if you alter it WHILE playing then you don’t get it. However, if you alter BEFORE you go into the game you’ll get all the points. Having said that, go into Options and get to work. To make it real simple set the HOME team to perfect. (just move it all the way to the right). Press RB(the top R button), then go into the Advance Defense and Offence Maneuvers. Once you get in there and looking at the achievements you should be able to figure out what to increase.(Blocking, Stealing). The next step is to set the other team. Go into the Away setting and change all their stuff all the way down except the “Mid Shot Tendancy”, and the other one that makes them shoot from the inside(this makes every person in the other team shoot for only 2 points therefore making it easier on you to block their shots).
After your done setting up the Stat Altering go into the Gameplay option and set it to simulation, put it at a 20 min Half, and turn down foul tendancies. You can also make it easier if you like and turn off fatigue etc.
Now just go into the Quick Game option from the main Menu, pick your team(set to home), and pick any team to go against(away). You’ll see that your team almost makes every shot they take(even from half court). However they might not do good in blocking, so set your defense at the highest level, and set the play where your team focus’s on inside defense. Using the settings above in one game or so you'll be done!
Compared to nba 2k6 this is just another clone.The graphics might look good but the gameplay ISN'T.Unlike the other games for the original xbox this one has very little to do. infact the best thing you can do is a tie between air hockey in the student lounge and the pontiac tourntament.There is no dynasty or rivalry games in this one in fact just rent it don't buy it, believe me i bought it ,and i wish i had rented it
