ESPN NBA Basketball To Feature ISOMotion

ESPN Videogames today announced details surrounding a revolutionary new feature for ESPN NBA Basketball called IsoMotion(TM) - allowing players to control both sides of the court by locking down opponents in a one-on-one encounter. This feature will be available exclusively in the upcoming release of ESPN NBA Basketball. ESPN NBA Basketball and other ESPN Videogames titles are produced by Visual Concepts - Sega's sports developer. Taking "control" to the next level, IsoMotion lets gamers execute one offensive move and then build upon it, allowing them to execute a crossover, spin, hesitate and, finally, take a quick step back and go for the three - all in one fluid movement. The defensive game is also taken to previously unseen heights with IsoMotion. Defensive players will now be able to react to every offensive move - blocking open lanes; stopping drives while judging direction; and potentially drawing the charge - creating true one-on-one "isolation" play within the game. "'ESPN NBA Basketball's' all-new ball-handling system combines the best of both offensive athleticism and defensive reaction skills," said Greg Thomas, president of Visual Concepts. "Basketball video games have historically focused primarily on offense, allowing players to make only one move at a time. IsoMotion gives sports gamers a chance to concentrate on both sides of the court, combining countless moves into one play." IsoMotion simulates the real interaction between the offense and defense, not only by allowing offensive players to find the open lane, but also by giving defensive players the chance to stop them in their tracks and force a turnover. Allowing users to sequence both offensive and defensive techniques, the feature adds both skill-based and reflexive play. Developed by Visual Concepts - makers of the critically acclaimed "SEGA Sports NBA 2K" series - ESPN NBA Basketball builds on the franchise's success as one of the best basketball simulations ever made by introducing more than double the animations and by creating incredibly innovative features like "IsoMotion."
