I got this game expecting an exact copy of the awesome game I remember so fondly from my childhood. I was therefore surprised when it turned out differently than I expected, although it is a good surprise. I love that they kept the traditional elements like getting "ON FIRE", as well as the 2-on-2 street ball action that made the game so entertaining.
I have thoroughly enjoyed some of the extra games they have added to make the game more interesting for this generation. Not only have they updated the players and teams (which I did expect), they have added games like "21" and "Smash", where you try to destroy the other team's backboard. All in all, a great game that is fun to play by yourself or with a friend or 3. Booyah!!
So incredibly true to the original. The only points making it NOT a 10/10 was -1 for the computer cheats real bad, and -1 not having Michael in the game whatsoever. I know its probably a money contract thing, but that was a HUGE letdown.
