  1. A horrible train wreck of problems ranging from poor rebounding and passing to inconsistent shooting percentages and a worthless post-up game.
  2. Play Magazine
    The game falls apart in its execution. Quite frankly, it's not very fun to play. [Dec 2002, p.90]
  3. 40
    The gameplay is outdated. Stuck somewhere between Electronic Arts' "Bulls vs. Lakers" and Sony's original "ShootOut," the simplicity of the mechanics and baffling defensive choices feel as though you're playing a game on your Sega Genesis and not a modern day console.
  4. The perfect April Fool's present for people that like to waste fifty bucks (or countless hours of their life) staring at a 'Loading' sign.

    I feel it is very realistic and has almost every thing it needs to be a 10 except its weak post up.
