The graphics are excellent; however, the game play is not very realistic. You cannot even play zone defense. It's strictly man to man. Almost all of the points come from dunks, which does get old because you are getting dunked on by the computer A LOT! The game is a fun rent,but don't purchase it.
Bought my PS3 and unfortunatley this game came bundled with it. Been a long time fan of the 2K series and this game validates it. There is no true simulation. its just run and gun "a la NBA JAM" Try it if you are curious, but honestly the 2K series is more worth your while.
