    This was one of my favorite PC games of all-time. Along with the NHL game where you could pick your own all-star team, this was hands down a great game. Sure there were the occasional stat glitches of not matching the ratings for existing players, but you could create hundreds of players and keep building current rosters for years. Game play was stellar, and it had a groundbreaking This was one of my favorite PC games of all-time.

And the best part was that you could hear Rahzel's song in the background, which was absolutely classic. KG rules, and so does this game. Expand

    A huge disappointment. Live 2000 was, and still is, miles ahead of this turd in terms of gameplay. The only thing that's improved are the graphics and animations. Everything else not only didn't improve, but actually took a step back!

  1. The fact that EA Sports hasn't adequately dealt with the nagging AI glitches is not nearly enough to seriously diminish the overall impression and the unmatched atmosphere of the series that has been its trademark throughout the years.
  2. For longtime fans of the series there simply isn't enough new stuff to get excited about, however, and for every improvement there are missing features and lingering problems that drag the game down.
  3. Personally, the game started out enjoyable and still is, but I have a feeling I will start to get frustarted with the rebounding and missing short shots too often in the near future.
