  1. This is a really good game for not only kids, but for adult gamers who want to share gaming with their children. If you’re a 21 year-old college kid looking for a game to play between keg-stands, this isn’t the one. If you’re looking for spot-on, photo-realistic NBA action, skip it. My daughter and I loved this game for the experience. It’s not about the AI, the graphics, or the animations. It’s what gaming should be about – fun. And when it’s family fun, well, that’s a huge bonus.
  2. But kids who want a quick and easy game that’s fun to play, has a nice variety of power-ups, and offers something different from the norm will be amused by what BB07 has to offer.
  3. The game purposely lacks the depth found in 2K Sports' NBA 2K7, making it ideal for kids and parents. Everyone else should stick to more option heavy basketball games.
  4. 25
    If it’s about delivering a quality gaming experience to the younger crowd, however, the series has again missed the mark. Being a children’s product is no justification for sub-par quality.
