This game is quite easily the best sports simulation game out there. It is complete in every way. Fulfills the needs and desires of both the series experienced gamer, and also the novice!
By no means a slant on the game itself (because to me it is excellent in pretty much every facet) but its a shame the actual National Basketball Association is currently undergoing a Player Lockout - because we are unable to experience real-time updates to actual player abilities, game schedules, results and much more, over the course of the regular season until resolved (ETA 3 weeks from today ive been advised)!
Sort it out Derek Fisher and the Association!!
