  1. If the developers can put as much emphasis on gameplay as they do in the franchise mode, this series might actually become something noteworthy.
  2. Definitely receives the Most Improved Series award. [Apr 2002, p.77]
  3. I was pleasantly surprised by the upgrades made from last year's version...The two biggest problems that I had were with the passing game and fast breaks.
  4. "NBA 2K2" is still the obvious choice for basketball fans. But 2Night's stock remains on the rise. [May 2002, p.99]
  5. It doesn't offer anything that would make us recommend it over a better basketball game. [May 2002, p.26]
  6. 57
    It's not altogether a dismal title, but the rebounding and passing flaws bring it down pretty far. Which is a shame, because the game looks very good.
  7. I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the heinous menu music. During Franchise mode, there's this rap song - I think it's rap - that sounds like a reject from the "Breakin'" soundtrack. It's neither hip nor hop.
