  • Summary: NBA Inside Drive 2004, Microsoft's exclusive basketball game for the Xbox, lets you brush shoulders with some of the biggest NBA superstars on the court. The game includes a wide selection of real-life ballers including Shaquille O'Neal, LeBron James, and Allen Iverson. Now through XSN Sports, you can easily organize teams, leagues, and schedules from a centralized Web site. New "jukes" and post moves will keep the game dynamic, and a revamped defensive game shuts down high-scoring teams. With thumpin' hip-hop beats, online play, and innovative commentary, NBA Inside Drive 2004 stays true to the game. Expand

  1. If you are the type of person who cares more about gameplay and is looking for a sim-like basketball experience, run out and get this game as soon as possible. No game comes closer to replicating the on the court action of the NBA.

  5. Offensively the game plays amazing; defensively the game struggles.
  6. 7 / 7 / 6 / 7 - 27 [Vol 788; 23 Jan 2004]

    Keep this one on the bench and hope that some off-season workouts can elevate it to starting status.
