overall, this game really dissapointed me. at the beginning, the graphics dont seem too bad, and i enjoyed the game. however, after playing for a little bit, it was way too easy. i even switched to superstar mode, and both teams shot about 90% from the field. with some selected players, such as steve nash and kirk heinrich, you can score on every play while driving to the hoop. however, other players miss breakaway layups consistently. the game is just wayy too easy, especially when you figure the game out. do not rent this unless you have young kids, or want to have a family game night. this game is not fun when playing multiplayer is head to head real nba games, but the multiplayer games are slightly fun. the slam dunk contest and the threee point shootout are fun when played with the rest of the family, and the two on two games are fun when the players aquire special powers. bottom line: this game is not good for someone who actually knows the game of basketball. however, this game should be rented if you are having a weekend party or a young kids family game night.
