Overall: Well I wasn't expecting much from this game, after OXM didn't give it that great of a rating compared to the other 2 hoops games, but boy was I surprised. It doesn't have that many features, but it does a great job of combining everything in the other 2 games. Like in EA's Live, they have incorporated the "Freestyle" moves, where you use the right thumbstick to decide which direction you want to dribble. They have taken the great gameplay of NBA Live, and added it to the great franchise and live mode of ESPN Basketball, and made an excellent game. Live roster updates are released basically every month and a half, which is another plus.
Gameplay: The season mode might be the best that I have encountered in video game basketball. I usually do it on All-Star, since I like a challenge, and it is very fun. Most of the games go down to the wire and the computer plays a very smart game. On XBox Live, the competition is scarce, but when you get into a good game, it is loads of fun. Having games go down to the wire is much funner than blowing someone out, and beating someone with the Lakers when you have the Celtics is just sheer enjoyment :)
Graphics: Utilizes the great XBox graphics for sure, since this is the only XBox exclusive basketball game. Has the best graphics of the 3 deffinately. The player models are purrrty, and the crowd isn't just a bunch of flat people. The net on the hoops could use a little work, but thats about it.
Sound: Great, catchy music for a basketball game. I find myself singing/humming the songs sometimes even when I'm not playing them. As for in the game, the announcers are a little dry, but the sound FX are great.
Suggestions: In the 2005 version, well... uhh.... !&%$@#* I can't think of any. I have absolutely no problems with this game. Just try to impress OXM a little more so more people buy this game and there are more people online!
