Just getting back into playing b-ball and have to say this is a nice start. I got waxed the first game, but won my next couple and had fun doing it. The menu setup for starting a season was a little confusing, but my major gripe is the freethrow meter. Is there anyone one on the planet that can pull back on the analog stick in a freakin perfectly straight line and forward with any consistency out there? If you can, you're good cause I averaged 1 made freethrow per game which is a joke. Why can't they give you the option to use the old way(aligning moving objects to center line) if you so choose? It's also difficult to play defense without putting the computer on the line which usually shoots 98%. Was fun, but I'll be hard pressed to buy a b-ball game that isn't a simple rehash. Hopefully, the PS3 version will make my decision an easier one.
