NBA 2K2 Box art Without a doubt the most realistic basketball game out there. A never ending of options and gameplay. Franchise mode is next to none. Supper intuitive AI, and the zone deffense is a great perk. Sega continues the 2K series with a quality follow up to this franchise. Diehards will not be dissapointed. This is as close to playing in the NBA i'll ever get.

Gameplay takes a little getting used to, but it's dead on when you figure it out. You can start out in a rookie mode to get used to the configuration of the control and how to adjust when you go on deffense. Great replays, and the cross over move will lose you sometimes! Creat-a-Player is it's usuall mix of pre-set types to a complete custom player. Street mode is also a good place to practice your hops, and the commentary is dead on. It's going to be hard to get bored with this one!

This is where NBA 2K2 loses a little ground, visually this game is a slightly tweaked and cleaned version of the PS2 port, once again developers ignored the power available on the xbox. Don't get me wrong, the graphics are O.K, but fall way short of expectation on this system.

The commentary is great in this game, dead on on replays and player performances as the game progresses. The crowd noise is just what you would expect in an actual game.

If you utilize the graphic power of the xbox in 2K3, you can leave the rest of the game as is!!

Overall: 10.0 / 10
Gameplay: 10.0 / 10
