This is one of the worst games i have ever played. Every single aspect of the game is flawed. On crossovers the ball magically flashes from one hand to the other, the vaccuum effect is awful, the game TELLS you where any rebounds will go, and the players look nothing like themselves in real life (and are drenched in sweat 30 seconds into the game). all of those things pale in comparison, however, when compared to the shot meter. because the meter tells you exactly when the perfect time to shoot is, you honestly have to be pretty terrible to miss any shots. I played my brother in a game with 2 minute quarters: Heat 81, Mavericks 79. my brother scored 79 points with dwyane wade for the heat and i scored 74 with jason terry. IN 8 MINUTES OF GAME. bottom line: the worst game to come out for ps3 by far. if you are thinking of buying this game don't bother and give your money to me; that's probably a better way to use it

This game is very good. It has many game modes and the graphics are superb. There are some problems though. One Problem I had is that there is no Create-a-Player. This upset me greatly because I had lots of fun creating super players in other basketball games for the PS2. But, since this is for the PS3, I cannot compare this game to PS2 games. Another problem I had is that there is lots of sweat pouring down the basketball player's faces. Even in replay mode, there is still sweat coming down their faces, and it is still there when the game is paused, and it just keeps coming. Other than these problems, this game is very fun. I intend to play NBA 2K7 but until then, I cannot compare these 2 games. Overall, good game with ver small flaws.
