Horrible

Why?

Ok, so I got this game and after hearing mixed reviews from several sources both industry and joe-blows from corner #2, I decided to give it a fair shot.

I turned on the game and was blown away at the actual -look- of the game. I mean, Chuck D actually was talking. It wasn't the generic mumble-mumble mouth moving. It looked real. So much so, that a friend came in and had to ask 'Is that a game?'.

Then the character creation was discovered. All right, let's rejoice. No. I can't make anything more then a generic black guy who is going to dominate on the court. Weak.

The gameplay was a bit sloppy. Not the usual cleanliness that I am used too when playing an NBA game. It felt like driving a school bus through a wave of honey. Just fricken sloppy.

Added into the gameplay, was the unavoidable cut scenes that seem to beat you to death with the bordem stick, as they constantly interrupt your gameplay. I was forced to watch as for fourty-five minutes, every single thing my team did resulted in the other team getting a cut scene by making us look like a bunch of blind retards, running around a brush fire.

So all in all, I looked at the game from a gamer perspective and realized that there is better on the market. Looked good, but the rest of it just wasn't there this time.

This game is terrible from the onset. The graphics, gameplay, shootout modes, etc. are all horrible. The players run around like the old NBA JAM or Hangtime and look like they have stationary heads. The cut scenes are lame...everything is just lame. Worst game ever.
