    One would think that EA sports is advancing positively in all aspects of computer sports gaming in terms of gameplay graphivs etc. FIrstly, EA sports does not seem to have advanced positively in terms of NBA 's gameplay. Very cheap and sharp player movement, weird player rebounding as well as player details definitely disappoint. The only positive thing can be said about its sound One would think that EA sports is advancing positively in all aspects of computer sports gaming in terms of gameplay graphivs etc. FIrstly, EA sports does not seem to have advanced positively in terms of NBA 's gameplay.

The only positive thing can be said about its sound (so what) and slightly about the graphics (which however do not help the gameplay). I was definitely expecting something more in terms of gameplay atributes than technical ones from EA which has gained "unlimited experience" in these kind of areas. Expand

  1. We could have done without the ads for Toyota (what is this, a movie preview?), but the slamming soundtrack and retro touches—the 1995 version of EA's game is included—should help bring the league one step closer to atoning for the Charlotte Bobcats.
  2. The game can be frustrating, especially when you have a higher-rated team get owned by a lower-rated one that seemingly can’t miss a shot and takes advantage of obvious lack of player movement on defense for easy buckets. But much of this part of the learning curve.

    Hardcore simulation fans really need not apply due to the broken rebounding model. But if you want a lot of high-flying sizzle in your hoops game and you don't care about the other minutiae, then by all means pick it up.
