  1. No matter what anyone tells you, Inside Drive 2003 is NOT the same game as last year. With the addition of sliders, how can you honestly say it's the same game??
  2. 83
    Despite the beefed up single-player game, Drive's lack of online play keeps it from taking top honors from "Sega Sports' NBA 2K3."
  3. Perfect for stat junkies who like the RPG element of the create-a-player feature. Casual basketball gamers might want to look elsewhere as the gameplay could use a few tweaks.

    A year later, the series has packed on a couple of off season pounds, and gets left in the dust. [Nov 2002, p.142]
  5. A slight update of a decent game but with other similar titles making significant additions to their gameplay itís in danger of stagnating.
  6. 70
    A slightly better value than 2002 with tweaked gameplay and a few new features. The problem is that the competition has jumped ahead substantially within the same time frame.
  7. I don’t think they're ready to make a playoffs run… this year.

    I think this game is great. I have PS2, so i played this game at my friend's house. This game makes me want to buy xbox just to play I think this game is great. I have PS2, so i played this game at my friend's house. This game makes me want to buy xbox just to play this game. I have NBA 2k3 and i have played NBA Live 2003. Inside Drive is better than both. It is much more fun and it just flows. The create a player is great, too. Haters of this game say it lacks "newness", but NBA 2k3 has had the same create a player features every year. Inside Drive is awesome, and I might have to go out and buy xbox. Expand

    Great game, awsome gameplay, the create a pleyer mode is sweet. The only cons are the gliches and that Shaq can sink 3's(yikes)

    Pick a star player and sink fade away half court shots over the entie opposing team. The most unrealistic sports game and thats including the Pick a star player and sink fade away half court shots over the entie opposing team. The most unrealistic sports game and thats including the Blitz series. When winning is being cheap how can a game be fun? Expand
