Good Game, but Squarepants Collection a better deal,
This review is from: Nicktoons Basketball - PC (CD-ROM)
Compete with the best of the best of the best for the ultimate Nicktoons trophy. Nicktoons Basketball is a One or 2-player mild-sports action game offering a variety of Nicktoons characters in a barebones ballgame. The game offers quick-start play, which randomly gets you playing instantly using pre-generated teams. It includes 17 players, 26 teams, and 8 courts! Play a game of 3-on-3 a whole season at a time, or in single game exhibitions. You can create your own Nick Basketball draft with players like Nickelodeon Basketball allows you to play as your favorite Nickelodeon players, such as: Spongebob, Patrick, Sandy Cheeks, Jenny the teenage robot Timmy Turner, Cosmo and Wanda, Danny Phantom, Oddo Rocket, grown-up Rugrats and many other great characters. Each character is styled consistently with it corresponding series, for example, the NEUTRON characters are presented with a sort of 3-d look consistent with the CGI of the show. Another interesting design feature are the quirk names and slick team logos provided for each league team.
As players advance, the opportunities to get special action-cards increases, like bonus play strength or increased 3-point ability. You can juggle team positions an tinker some with play strategies. A fun game for younger gamers, and good to compete against one another, but very little skill is necessary to play.
I recommend it, but I suggest instead of buying it alone, the better value is the SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS COLLECTION which has this game and an additional 3 cd-roms: Battle for Bikini Bottom, Employee of the Month, Operation Krabby Patty all for $19.99. See my review for more details. ASIN: B000AP2X00
