with that said given the fact that it is a ps2 title it is worth the 30$ sticker price if your limited to playing ps2 only. the game has its flaws as with every game but u will find no other basketball game on the ps2 that will come close to this 1 so i give it a 9 based on ps2 standards
NBA 2K9 for the PS2 is weak at best. From my experience with the game, the graphics are very weak which draws heavily away from the overall experience of the game. The animations in the game are decent. However, they become extremely repetitive after a few hours of gameplay. The fluidity of motion that should be presented in a basketball game is just not there for this title and that makes for a very "stick figure" like feel. I will say however, that the most appealing aspect of the game would definitely have to be the street ball pickup games that you can play. These are very useful if you just want to clown around on the court, but if you're looking for a deeper experience, the PS2 version of this title comes up a little short. I would definitely recommend the XBOX 360 version of this title to all sports games lovers. Now that's an amazing game!

This game sucks for the ps2, a. the graphics are not good, and they barley change anything from game to game, b. the way players look are not that bad, but they dont have good sound, like when you score it dosn't make barley any sound, so if you expect a good game from this, then just beware, but this is just what i think, i rank this game bad 3
