  1. It does suffer from some of the same issues that original game had. Namely, the disjointed steal and alley oops, and the lack of visual or aural character that comprises the NBA.
  2. It's a pretty rocking title that can hang with the b-ball big boys. [Mar 2002, p.80]
  3. With great sim style and arcade jams, NBA Courtside 2002 nets the best of both worlds. [Feb 2002, p.148]
