I give this game a 5 out of 10, mainly because there are many other and earlier types of Basketball video games out there that I think are much better and realistic than this one.

The first thing I noticed was that if you want to play a team that is lower rated than yours, the ratings aren't usually a factor. You can be playing a team 30 overall rating points lower than you, and can be down 35-15 going into halftime.
In reverse, you can play the same team again in a different match, and totally kill them. I found this aspect of the game very inconsistent.

Also, I found that this game lacks action, in the sense that the computer is very easy to read, and you can easily figure out its next move. I thought this game was pretty boring for the most part, even during the "season" or "playoff" modes.

For the reasons above, I give this game a 5 out of 10.

I've never been a true fan of basketball games. However, I give them a try every once in a while. Kenny Smith is okay on the TNT post game show, but it becomes awful listening to his commentating in this game. I actually heard him say, "Nash is a poor ball handler." Next he's going to tell me that a Ferrari doesn't handle the corners well. Also, do I have to see a replay after every made basket?! It becomes annoying.

Why is it that when I make a good pass to one of the best dunkers in the league, and he receives it right under the basket, instead of dunking, he trys a hook shot?

And finally, when I perform a perfect pick and roll, and my picker rolls wide open down the lane, when I try to pass to him,the pass goes past him to a tightly guarded player outside the lane.

I can't wait till the game suspends my players for no good reason.
