This is the best game i have played on ps3! The graphics are amazing and the fans almost look real. The players all play like they do in real life like sean merion has his real shoot in the game. The only bad thing about this game is like all 2k basketball games is that you miss alot of lay-ups and close shoots. If you are a sports fan get this game.
I won't bore you by repeating why this is the best basketball game that I've ever played. I'll just say that if you play this game on a HDTV you will know exactly what I mean. I was blown away by the level of detail that was put into this game (i.e. S. Marion's jump shot, or J. Kidd's free throw routine).
However, if you, like most of us, want to play this game online, then prepare to be frustrated. It is very difficult to connect to an opponent. I've recently set up my PS3 to connect wirelessly to my router, and I have not been able to connect since. Even prior to this, when I was "wired", I had difficulty finding someone that I could connect to. I am hoping that this is a issue with their servers that will be fixed eventually, because I can see me playing this game for a long time.
This is the best b-ball game out there but side by side on my hd-tv the ps3 version is not as visually pleasing as the 360 version. There are also pixels that are rough on some of the player models on the ps3 version not on the 360 version. The gameplay is the most realistic and the shot forms are fantastic(authentic for each player). I recommend the 360 version as there was slow down at times on the ps3 version and online play is awesome but xbox live is also doing a way better job than sony. Sorry sony fanboys go with the xbox 360 version its just plain better.
