  1. Good graphics, fun in-game play, good mini-games, not a whole lot of depth with season mode.
  2. The game looks excellent and the online potential has been realized; all that’s left is to handle the AI and SIXAXIS hiccups and this one is ready to head to the pros.

    The sense of inconsistency throughout the game is troubling but if you look deep inside the game, NBA 07 is enjoyable.

    But here's where, at least for me, NBA 07 earns the "sports innovation" award at the PS3 launch: Every week, Sony will offer five downloadable scenarios from this year's real NBA season that you can try and re-create (hey, the rest of you sports developers, this is how you give your game some longevity, OK?).
  5. There is no "The Life" or any career-mode variant present in the game, the NBA Replay mode is a novelty that wears thin, and the mini-games leave a lot to be desired.
  6. It looks, plays, and feels exactly like a quick, smooth, arcade-style basketball game from ten years ago, but with slightly next-gen graphics, and that can still be fun. But the game's only competitor looks better, plays smarter, and offers more game modes and adjustable options than can easily be counted.
  7. Thin, poorly balanced and not that good looking, kind of like Shawn Bradley. Take our advice, and let this pass go out of bounds.
