Really Bad

EA stands for "everything awful"

It gets worse and worse every year, thats why it was rented and not bought. Good thing the NBA isnt hurting for money like the NFL and contracted them out to be the only game franchise. If you need a NBA fix, go with 2k sports.

Gameplay: Bad - you move the players and they go everywhere except where you need them to, not to mention trying to stop the players is even harder.

Graphics: Decent - Decent isnt good enough for next gen consoles. HD exposes all the flaws of the graphics.

New Features : NBA DNA - If you wanna lose at the game when your favorite players are struggling in real life then i guess its ok. TRAINING STATIONS - Good for learning how to play basketball in real life.

Overall: This game is just bad, the only good thing about this game is the stat tracking. Its the same weak NBA Live with additional game modes and for the 4th year in a row a change in button configuration.
