    I honestly hated this game at first but give it a shot and you'll have a realistic experience. Play this game if you want to experience what the NBA is really like. YES 2k6 is a lot more fun but I'd still reccomend both games. Play through a few games and you'll have a blast.

    Graphics that are so good it's like watching NBA on TV. Why spend money on an Xbox 360 to play last generation graphics. The control, commentary and sound as top notch. There is no way any user should rate this game under 7. I doubt they even own the game. Superb game. Get it.

    Looks sexy and plays like pro, but it's just not the polished veteran that you've come to expect with PS2 and Xbox. At least it's clear to see that with a little more seasoning, this game should be in fighting shape next year.

    There's nothing at all safe about this game, and as a result the finished product is raw, unpolished and lacking depth -- but it's also one of the most "next-gen" and exciting games you can play right now on 360.

    As shallow a basketball game you will find this year. Less features for more money, what a deal! Sure, it looks like a top prospect, then again, so did Kwame Brown and you see how that turned out.
