    One of the most complete sports games on any platform.
  2. With revamped animation, new zone defenses, and improved AI...the most true-to-life simulation of the National Basketball League to date.
  3. "NBA 2K1" was, in my opinion, the best basketball simulation ever made. That is, until I played this one. [Dec 2001, p.112]
  4. 100
    One of the best basketball games ever on any console…period.
  5. There's no two ways about it folks: NBA 2K2 is the best-playing basketball game on the planet.
  6. The best-looking (you heard me, Live), best-playing game of basketball you’ll find. [Jan 2002, p.231]
  7. Slick prentation and excellent gameplay.
  8. Nobody has developed a perfect basketball sim. Visual Concepts however has come the closest with NBA 2K2. By far this is the best hoops title on the market today.
  9. 100
    It’s the best next-gen basketball game available, easily beating "NBA Live 2002" for the PS2, which is more of a roster upgrade than a revamping of the game.
  10. Little more than "NBA 2K1" with Michael Jordan, the Memphis Grizzlies, glitchy zone defense and an afterthought of a street ball mode.
  11. If you do plan on going online with NBA 2k2 keep in mind that it might be convenient to have a Dreamcast keyboard handy, when setting up a game. It makes communication much easier.
  12. It won't convert those who think basketball is a monotonous procession of points until the game is decided in the last 30 seconds, but its multiplayer larks will bring joy to clans everywhere.
