STAFF REVIEW of NBA Inside Drive 2002 (Xbox)

NBA Inside Drive 2002 Box art Let's cut to the chase. ID 2002 is the best basketball game on the market right now. I know, I know, 2k2 is supposedly the cream of the crop. The reality is 2k2 is straight garbage!!! This game feels like playing real basketball. The players look like those spoiled millionaires we have grown to love and hate. 2k2 players look like they were born in the jungle, and swing from trees!! XBOX haters beware their there is a new sheriff in town. ID 2002 is here to stay!!!!!

The game play is excellent!!! I actually play basketball and this game comes closest to the real game. XBOX does a good job of controls relative to gameplay, except calling a timeout feels a little awkward. The players flow on the court like silk, they run and jump like gazelle on the screen. The athleticism of basketball players are portrayed better than any game out.(U 2 2K2).

This game is visually spectacular. At times it may appear to be a little dark in the arena but that is overshadowed by the incredible player models. Iverson is Iverson, Garnett is Garnett, and Kobe is Kobe. As opposed to 2k2 where all of the player models resemble something Darwin conjured up!

These are the best announcers I have ever heard on any sports game. They actually have a sense of humor!!! It's the best. The crowd noise goes along perfectly with the game and the game situation. I hope that the new ID keeps these announcers!!!!

Keep the announcers for the next go round. Lighten it up in the arena a little, and shake rattle and roll take 2k2s' gold!!!!!!!!!!! I holla!!!!

Overall: 10.0 / 10
Gameplay: 9.0 / 10
Visuals: 9.0 / 10
Sound: 10.0 / 10
