Mixed or average reviews - based on 12 Critics

Critic score distribution:
  1. Positive: 2 out of 12
  2. Negative: 4 out of 12
  1. My suggestion from here on out is that every time you see a 989 sports title sitting on the shelf, whether it's at Best Buy, EB, or even Blockbuster just pretend it's not there.
  2. Weak gameplay, graphics, sound and options make NBA ShootOut 2001 an easy pass. Don't bite on this ball fake.
  3. The entire game will most likely leave most gamers (not just basketball fans) feeling disgusted.
  4. 989 should just stop with these crummy sports games already. They can't currently compete with the folks at Visual Concepts and EA Sports. If this is next-gen basketball, then I'll stick with the good old days.
