    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?

    The animation transitions are sloppy, and the A.I. is lacking on both sides of the ball. The controls are simply too slow to respond to your input, as well. [Winter 2002, p.99]
  2. 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??
  3. The new addition of the lengthy franchise mode along with the addicting create-a-player portion of the game certainly makes the game more enjoyable.
