    Unmatched in its field thanks to major improvements in every category combined with a deeply rewarding simulation experience.
  2. Simply put, NBA 2K3 is the best basketball game ever made.
  3. While "Live" has made great strides this year, 2K3 is so far ahead of the curve, it's astounding. [Dec 2002, p.236]
  4. Sega's excellent NBA series takes another step toward perfection by paying more attention to basketball's nuances. [Nov 2002, p.224]
  5. Has some annoying flaws--the default passing system can be inaccurate, especially on the fast break, and there are some weird problems with shot selection--but in truth, these aren't flaws that dramatically hinder the gameplay experience.
  6. About the only caveat one should offer when discussing NBA 2K3 is that the game is for the serious basketball fan. To have any fun with it, you have to play like you would in the real NBA.
  7. Although the player models look better than they do in EA's game, the movements aren't as fluid. Some of the animations (especially passing) are a little awkward. [Nov 2002, p.88]

    The nba in your house!! This is the best nba title ever made, with great graphic, immense playability and a lot of game modes. Over all, take a look to the franchise mode and the possibility of modify real players stats... Collapse
