    I guess the developer of this game didn’t get the memo about zone defense. [Nov 2001, p.220]

    Even if I never played "NBA 2K1" or "NBA Live," I'd still know this game sucks. [Nov 2001, p.122]

    It would be wise to send ShootOut 2002 to the showers unless you simply must have updated player rosters and the questionable touch-shooting feature.
  4. If NBA ShootOut 2002 does come in contact with eyes flush with water and induce vomiting.
  5. In some ways the game has actually suffered--with its fluctuating frame rate and choppy animation--when compared to last year's game.
  6. It offers nothing new and improved. If you’re a fan of the series and absolutely must have the updated rosters, then you may want to... uh, forget it, don’t buy it anyway!
  7. The create-a-player mode (welcome to the 1990’s - it’s 2001 already) and dunk editor didn’t make us bat an eyebrow...It’s an unwelcome rehash of a franchise that screams for a complete overhaul.

    A shot in the arm that makes me enthusiastic about a PS2 ShootOut prospect. [Nov 2001, p.166]
  9. It's merely coasting on the competency of an engine that's good-enough to recycle last year's features without improvements, rule changes or a playable Michael Jordan.
  10. Until 989 wakes up and smells the coffee and they will continue to dwindle in mediocrity and play second fiddle to Sega Sports and EA.
