Having bought this to boost my gamerscore, I actually liked this game very much. I'm not into basketball at all, but have watched clips of it on Sky Sports. This game despite its age has very good gameplay, it captures the fast pace of B'ball very well. I wont be playing it again but thats because I've already sold it. you can get the full 1000GS in about 12 minutes so if your after a good B'ball game you couldnt go far wrong (I'm not sure the servers are still up for multiplayer so it might just be solo or 2player same screen play) and if your just after the GS then this is a great buy.
This game is amazing, the detail in every single basketballer, the detail in the crowd, the commentary, the gameplay and the amount of features in this game all bring together a fantastically enjoyable game. The only main feature i use alot is The association where you run your own team and your primary goal is to get your team to the playoffs in one peace and earn a truckload of money in the process.
Very fun game with an upto date roster so you wont be disapointed. The commentary is spot on when pointing out your every move or telling the fans about the players history.
You also have the create a player and create a team option which didn't go un-noticed.
