Product Description

Product Description

The Only DEDICATED 3 on 3 extreme style basketball video game available this season

Amazon.com

NBA Hoopz is strictly for the basketball fan who thinks the sport is all about spectacular dunks, lots of shoving, and little or no strategy. With the goofy gameplay and hyper-exaggerated NBA player renderings, b-ball purists probably will (and should) dismiss this as the dumbest of arcade games.

Hoopz is basically the latest generation of basketball games in the ultra-arcadey NBA Showtime or NBA Jam vein and has little in common with the more accurate NBA simulations out there. In most respects it plays slightly better than the older arcade-style titles, if only because Hoopz is a three-on-three game.

Most gamers will immediately notice the enlarged heads and huge biceps on even the lankiest of NBA players. Also, the fast-paced action basically centers on hurling the ball around the court as quickly as possible without any regard for complicated play calling. In fact, most ballers can easily jump 25 feet above the rim for ridiculous, death-defying dunks that, of course, deliver the ultimate in sports fantasy.

Unlike most of the 2001 season of "real" basketball games for the system, Hoopz stretches gameplay with a few mini games. Included are variants on 21, Around the World, Three-Point Contest, and even the old-school 2Ball that features two-on-two team play. There are also unlockable courts for you to find. You can also easily create your own players and cause havoc throughout the NBA with wild league trades and customizations.

While the courts and backgrounds are decently drawn, the player models are disappointingly blocky and fail to capitalize on the system's power. Hoopz gives players a backward walk and the give-and-go, among other moves, but the game's emphasis on shoving, steals, and strategy-defying action confounds these nuances. --Mark Brooks--This text refers to the PlayStation2 version of the game.

Pros:

  • Very easy to play
  • Mini games and unlockable courts
  • Strictly for basketball neophytes

Cons:

  • Cartoony player graphics are uninspired
  • Little to no strategy required, which kills off longevity
  • Possibly too silly for its own good

NBA Hoopz is a great game for somebody who likes a little more excitment in a sports game, and not so many complicated rules. Though there are some rules to this game- goaltending and after you commit 5 pushing fouls(which are the only kind of fouls in this game)the other team gets a 3 point free throw shot. Though there is an exception to these rules, if you make 3 shots with the same player before the other team scores there are no rules!!!!! This is ended when the other team scores.
Another great aspect of this game is that you can perform insane dunks! Practically anything from a simple two handed slam to a crazy 360 double pump.
If you have ever played NBA Jam for sega you will love this game.
