  • Summary: Features 70 new player models, each consisting of over 4,500 polygons. From muscle definition to wrinkles in the uniform, players are more lifelike than ever before as upgraded gameplay features allow the performance of over 30 new dunks including reverses, follow-ups and 360 degree jams.

  1. A fast paced, tightly controlled game with tons of depth within its gameplay modes and plenty of eye and ear catching additions makes it one of the better basketball titles to come out in a while.
  2. It goes beyond most gamers expectations and will be a quality contender soon enough.
  3. While, this game is better then previous efforts, Final Four is still a long way from competing with the big boys.
  4. 60
    Poor A.I., stiff controls, and rough game flow may make you turn back around again.
  5. Just doesn't even come close to what the competition offers in terms of gameplay--both in the fundamental mechanics of the game and in its technical aspects.
  6. The game's most glaring flaw? Idiotic AI. [Jan 2003, p.84]
  7. The only thing that could make this worse would be if the game was broken, but then you'd at least be spared the agony of playing it. [Jan 2003, p.96]

    The only thing that is a little shaky about is the graphics, other wise the has very good gameplay and the movement good also .

    I thought it was horrible. I played one game and put it back in the box. I'm glad I only rented it

    This game is by far the worst ps2 game I have played. Gameplay is terribly slow and rough and every time you shoot there is an annoying shot meeter. Big waste of time for even a rental. Expand
