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

    I've played other basketball games including ESPN and NBA Live, but this one is the most realistic, as well as fun. The only thing that I've played other basketball games including ESPN and NBA Live, but this one is the most realistic, as well as fun. The only thing that kept this game from getting a 10 is the fact that when you're on defense and you go up for a block, there is a little lag time, which makes if VERY difficult to block a shot. You have to get the timing down perfect, but even then it's hard. Other than that one thing, this game is awesome. I can honestly say that it's the best NBA game I've ever played, and I've been playing sporting video games for 15 years! Full Review »
