    Debuting in this '03 renewal is the EA Sports "freestyle" control. Wihout question, it WILL change the way you play basketball games...forever. [Nov 2002, p.88]
  2. A complete game. It looks good and it plays great. A few AI drawbacks aside, this is hands down the best basketball simulation on the market.
  3. The PC version unquestionably has the best online features of any of the game's versions, since it lets you create clubs and track various stats online.
