The game centers on casual 3-on-3 pick-up games set in a variety of urban settings. You can pick players from any NBA team, a roster of All-Stars, or a pantheon of famed ballers from NBA history. You can also create your own hoops star, tweaking a portfolio of skills like "dunks" and "handling" and even picking hair styles and outfits. There are several play modes, including quick, one-off games, an NBA Challenge against various teams, and the "Be a Legend" mode that lets you develop the career of your streetballer, improving his skills and upgrading his shoes and wardrobe as you dunk your way across the country on courts from New York to Seattle.
The controls are a little intimidating at first, at least to folks like me who don't play a lot of sports titles. I imagine hard-core NBA gamers will have a much easier time mastering the various moves. But there is a nice tutorial that takes you through everything, and the game turns out to be one of those "easy to learn, difficult to master" exercises.
The graphics are pretty solid. The characters are fairly realistic with a bit of cartoonish edge to them. The moves are nicely exaggerated, i.e., players can soar several feet above the basket on their way to slamming down a spectacular dunk. There is nice variety in the appearance and skills of your opponents, who can range from towering men with afros to petit women in tank-tops. The wide selection of courts is also nice.
Finally, apart from the traditional street scoring of one point per basket up to 21, there is a cool system for awarding points based on style and combinations of trick moves.Read more ›
A great training area lets you learn all the moves with as much time as you need. Replay each type of move as many times as you need to, and get yourself comfortable.
There are over 150 players to work with, from all eras of basketball heroes. The range of moves to use and unlock is pretty amazing, and there's a wealth of locations and gameplay to keep things interesting. The game starts slowly enough that even thoughs not really familiar with basketball can learn as they go.
The graphics are great, with well animated figures doing amazing moves and looking quite realistic. The graphics are on par with Dead or Alive III, with leaves floating down and skidding along, great textures on surfaces and nicely done shadows.
The sound and music really draw you in. There's a great selection of music that cycle in the background, and the 'commentator' has some brilliantly funny lines. Of course usually your friends in the room are cheering over his comments, as you execute an amazing triple-trick move and trash your opponents.
Really a fun game even for non-sports enthusiasts. If you enjoy basketball, you'll become addicted and be dreaming about the game when you finally get some sleep!
