Fair

If this is the best on the market, we are hard up.

I dont really care much for the game. The players dont seem to react instantly to controls. If you want to pull up and shot on the run you need to hit the button about three steps before the spot you want to shoot because it seems like that is how long for the animations to process. The court looks good as far as graphics, but the players are not all that amazing. Overall I would say it is just a little bit above average.

I thought I was playing 2k6 when I played my first game. The graphics are semi a step up, but they end up looking less smooth and not better by any means. Like everyone else has stated, the gameplay is terrible. By gameplay, I mean, they try to simulate real basketball which was done but it is way to choppy and it is almost like the computer is playing for you giving you little options.

If you want a the best simulation basketball game this one is for you, but if you want to have a little fun when playing realistic basketball; Go pick up Live.
