  1. The amount of detail displayed by the player models will simply astound you. Players look exactly like themselves from head to toe.
  2. Once you've played a while, and realize that a full franchise mode is missing, along with create-a-player and free agency trades, you'll realize that Drive didn't drive hard enough to compete with 2K2 or Live.

    A very challenging game with the computer constantly hitting clutch shots when the game is on the line.
  4. Despite a wide array of team-specific offensive plays, you can't call specific defensive formations and the new zone defense that was legalized in the NBA this year is nowhere to be found. [Apr 2002, p.79]
  5. While this hectic pace isn't realistic, it does make your palms sweat. [Apr 2002, p.143]
  6. 70
    It became apparent to me after thorough play-time that Microsoft fell short with this title.
  7. 40
    The problem with the Xbox version is that the defensive AI is atrocious.
