    I give this game approx. a 7...The graphics are pretty good considering the fact that basketball is possibly the hardest game to emulate into a video game situation. The sounds in the court are pretty accurate to a real game, but I think that the comentary needs some work.

  1. The AI is rudimentary; CPU teams don't shoot the ball when open on the perimeter, show no evidence of a post-up game, and generally run around like headless chickens.
  2. Probably the biggest knock against NBA ShootOut 2003 (if you ignore the complaints of defense purists) is the graphics. The player models and faces are a bit rough, and it can be hard at times to see the resemblance of marquee players to their real-life counterparts.

    The series is making progress, but it's still a cut below what Sega and EA are offering.
