I was so surprised this was the worst basketball game I have ever played. I looked at the trailers and previews before the game was released and I thought it would be awesome. O, boy was I wrong. The graphics were like 1998 Nba live graphics. Never play this game ever!

Although NBA Ballers: Chosen One does have some new features which make it somewhat enjoyable, it is hard to get a full appreciation for the game when the gameplay seemed to be pushed out before it was fully ready. Of course, as with most NBA streetball oriented games, there is an increasing difficulty from very easy to insane on this game. However, the most difficult part is not necessarily the computer's AI. Instead, it is the fact that the game does not register a lot of the human players movements around the ball and around his/her opponent. This causes an increasing amount of frustration with the game, and may even cause you to simply pack the game up and send it back within 1-2 days. Some aspects were okay, such as the cutscene "super moves" but even they were sometimes glitchy and the "super dunks" were not as artistically impressive as the other "super moves." In my opinion, if you aren't sure whether or not you want this game, just pass on it. If you really enjoy these titles, then rent it, but definitely do not buy it.
