    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. I've played other basketball games including ESPN and NBA Live, but this one is the most realistic, as well as fun.

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! Expand

    This game will set the bar for b-ball titles this year. Last year this game did not get the publicity because it was not on line, this year it will lead the pack!

    As long is the crossovers are right the game will be the best basketball game of 2004.
