    Sure, the realism is unbelieveable, the passes, plays and replays are amazing, but if you are not good at basket ball videogames then you'd only be playing this game to look at it.

    The 2K2 [computer opponents], however, can light it up with more ferocity than a pit bull at a beef jerky convention. [Mar 2002, p.138]
  2. If the game were any more detailed, they would have to include a “Record Shitty Rap Album” mode.

    The gaming equivalent of a religious experience. [Feb 2002, p.112]
