When it comes to digital hoop action, there's no doubt that NBA 2K sports the most luscious visuals ever seen in a basketball game. It's not the best-playing basketball game out there, as it does commit some serious fouls with its questionable artificial intelligence. But like NFL 2K before it, this is yet another sports game that Dreamcast owners will want to show off to friends.

The clean graphics show some extremely well-detailed players, stadiums, fans, and even coaches. While the player animations aren't quite smooth as glass (there are quite a few speed-ups and slowdowns), the players do move in a fairly realistic manner. When you see the instant replay of your favorite power forward delivering a massive dunk, you'll cheer. To complement the visuals, Sega has added play-by-play and color commentary to document the on-screen action. While this does get a little repetitive, this feature ultimately adds to the atmosphere of realism.

NBA 2K shows some trouble with controls. This is most apparent in handling loose balls. You'll cringe as you occasionally watch long passes sail out of the court, resulting in mindless turnovers. This is especially painful to watch when the Dreamcast can't complete passes to computer-controlled players. These stupid turnovers can, will, and do affect a game's final score--and have even caused a few games to be restarted in disgust. On the positive side, NBA 2K contains a new finesse-based method of hitting foul shots that requires that you squeeze the control triggers in near perfect synch.

The create-a-player and coaching options make it relatively easy to lead your team from postseason TV watchers to championship ring owners.

While the 2000 season's prettiest basketball game offers more than just the most delicious eye candy, there is still a lingering feeling that NBA 2K could've been much better with a little more fine-tuning. At the very least, while NBA 2K is recommended, it is anticipated that the successor NBA 2K1 will offer even more backboard-breaking fun. --Mark Brooks

Pros:

  • Spectacular graphics that show plenty of detail
  • Play-by-play and color commentary add to the fun
  • Easy to play, but different from most console roundball games
  • Foul shots are a highlight
Cons:
  • Graphics suffer from occasional slowdown for no apparent reason
  • Controls could be stronger

It seems silly to not give five star rating to the best basketball game of all time, but that's just what I'm doing. If you are a basketball or sports fan, this is a must-buy, but that being said, it has problems. The overall presentation of the game is incredible, but not quite as seamless as NFL 2K, which is the new benchmark for video sports. This game has great gameplay, just like NFL, and absolutely unbelievable graphics. The only problem this game has, actually, is the fact that it's not terribly fun. Maybe it' because I like football better than basketball, but this game doesn't give me the thrill that NFL 2K does; rather, it frustrates me horribly. The discrepency in execution of plays between the the computer and human is enormous, and a lot of the ratings for players and teams are way out of whack. All of that being said, it absolutely blows away NBA Live 2000, probably the next-best B-ball game, for the PC, which will now collect dust for the rest of time. Games like this one are the reason why I and many others bought Dreamcasts: Sega's painstaking dedication to making the best sports games around, which the Genesis made them famous for. I can't wait for NHL 2K.

Wow. This game is the greatest basketball game to ever grace the Earth. Remember all those other basketball games with the shoddy graphics and horrible framerates? Well, forget 'em. This game has great graphics with amazing detail, from the holes in the characters uniforms to the tattoos on Jason Williams arms to the facial hair on Shaq's face. The characters also correspond to their real-life counter-parts. From Patrick Ewing's slow run to Jason Williams' famous fancey foot work. Oh, it also runs at a steady 60 fps. The game also plays grrreeaattt! Pulling off a perfect play, alley-oop, dunk, 3-pointer, whatever feels great! The game does have some flaws that keep it from being perfect. Some strange calls from thee ref really get annoying, and sometimes people on your team will catch the ball with one foot out of bounds. Why? There is also some strange missed passes, but thos are actually kind of realistic. The last flaw is that during a season game you can't check stats from other games, just the one your playing. Oh well, a great game non-the-less. Definetely on worth buying. It just never seems to get old. Peace.

Don't get me wrong. I own and love this game and am currently enjoying playing a season against my friend. But we'll both tell you the same thing: this game can get frustrating to no end! I've never seen computer players behave so brilliantly one moment and then so stupidly the next. There are a TON of glitches in this game and the more you play it, the more you'll find. The two most frustrating glitches are 1. Passing to someone and discovering that they have a foot out of bounds. Get on the court, you stupid moron! 2. Even the best passers in the game can and will make the dumbest passes you've ever seen. You can try to pass to a guy that is ten feet ahead of you and the ball will sail over everybody's heads. Aargh! Along with all the other glitches, this leads to a ridiculous amount of turnovers that can cost you a win. How annoying! Now, it may sound like I'm bashing this game pretty hard, but when everything works, this is a joy to play. I've actually gone an entire half before without commiting one turnover. Go figure. They definitely have to work on the control for the next game (NBA 2K1) but I don't see how the graphics will improve much on the next one as they are so amazing on this one. I give this game four stars and I take one star off because of the glitches. If there were no glitches, it would get a five. Or more like a six.

This game easily blows away every other basketball game on the market. The graphics are superb and the sound is pretty good. From the players, to the arenas, and even the fans in the stands.... It all has a tremendous amount of detail. The only reason this game didn't get 5 stars is because of glitchy play-by-play and the inability to pass out of a dunk or layup. This leads to a lot of unnecessarily blocked shots that could have easily been avoided by passing out to a team-mate. Other than that, it's a fantastic game.

I have never played a sports game that was as fun and challenging as this one. I play it on pro and every single game goes down to the wire. Even if i lose, i feel like it is my fault. Unlike in other games in which the control and game mechanics are so lousy, you have no control over the result, NBA 2K is so balanced, the outcome of the game is truly up to you. This game has so many playable angles and they all look so nice. This game is just fantastic. If you have to buy one basketball game, skip on NBA Showtime, get this one!

I have been playing basketball games on every system for years, and without question this game is the best out there. As expected the first thing that stands out about this game is the great precision and detail in their graphical layout. Everything from hairstyles, to tattoos (even sneakers in some cases) is in the game. Whenever I do buy a b-ball game, I am more interested in the game play and available options than anything. The gameplay takes a little getting used to, but once you do, the realism of the game shines. I can't tell you how intense it was to be on the road in Utah trying to win against the Jazz. It was just like in real life; once I thought I had a comfortable lead they kept coming back. That is what impresses me most about NBA2K: the computer AI. It is HARD to defeat the computer on the Pro level. I don't even want to think about the All Star level yet. However, it is not impossible if you play a smart game. There are tons of options, including an incredibly detailed player creation level. I really have only two minor complaints as far as the game is concerned. For one, it is incredibly easy to block shots in the game, no matter who the defensive player is. It gets kind of frustrating sometimes when Karl Malone is the leading shotblocker on the opposing team. Also, it is almost impossible to complete a long pass with a big man. I know they are not usually the best passers, but they are horrible in this game. Anyway, those are minor details that can be fixed in the future. The bottom line is this is a must have for any basketball fan. I can't wait for next year's version.
