The game is fun for the basketball fans. It's just a lot more could have been added to make the game a lot more worthy:

-Party Mode only offers 2 events: Slam Dunk contest and 3-Point shootout. They could have had at least 10 mini-games to add for the fun of it.

-Season mode isn't really that entertaining. Can get dull a little fast after playing a few times.

-Some of the team rosters are a good fit. But why are the legendary teams missing Michael Jordan? They have Reggie Miller, Patrick Ewing, Larry Bird, etc. Jordan is nowhere to be seen, except for a "Jordan Player of the Game" award.

The gameplay is great. Graphics are alright. I feel if you are really a fan of the sport, then it's a decent buy. But I'd rent it before consider buying it.

No Speed burst. That really effects how you play the game. The controls are pretty cool and gameplay is clean. I wouldn't buy it but it sure is fun when its the only basketball game to play.

When we received the game, it did not work. Therefore we could not play it. My son was very upset, because he waited for it, and then once he got it it didn't work!!!!!
