Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great if you love 2K It's a great game, I wouldn't say this game is for if you're just start playing basketball on here or anything like that, you need to learn the game before you can really enjoy it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from amazing game, must buy for bball fans this game is amazing. it was my first ps3 game i had. i downloaded the demo on my xbox 360 and it wasnt much fun but it looked worth it to me, so i bought it. when i played it i was amazed. there are so many things to do in this game. it is so realistic you can acually tell who the ppl are, wtihout looking at their jerseys. the graphics are plain out awesome. the crowd looks better than ever they stand up and distract the opposing team as they do free throws. you can even see the players sweat dripping on the floor. there is so much to do in this game that its just amazing. people say the controle scheme isnt very good. but i find it awesome, it adds a challenge. you dont just push a button to juke or to shoot. the living roster feature is great it keeps me updated on injuryes and trades in the nba. the signuature player moves is a great add to the game, doing fade aways with kobe to do high fly dunks with lebron. the only thing i find bad abt this game is the computer AI if you pass the ball they will sometimes catch it out of bounds. people say its imposible to make free throws in this game but it acually isnt once you get used to it. and again it adds more challenge, you dont much a button to do the free throw..... overall this game is amazing, a must get for bball fans!- and sports fans...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2k9 puts LIVE 09 to bed! This game is a classic....and I cannot wait until 2k10....if you like real b-ball and the real feel this game is it. This is not your typical run and shoot....this game takes strategy and is very accurate to the T! as far as b-ball it is 2k all the way!!! NBA live is DEAD!!!!!...........this game is crazy......any of you gamers out here have to pick it up, you have to!!!! So real from the arenas to the beads of sweat that run down the faces of the players....the only problem that I have with this game is the online setup....it really needs some true work. But as far as basketball EA Sports has not been good since Live 06 no joke!!!!! Get this game today and I promise you that you will not regret it a bit....as of a matter of fact Im about to play right now folks...see yall online!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yes, To 2k9 Ok, first of all I've played the demo before playing the game on PS3, and I thought the game was excellent. The graphics were amazing and overall it was cool and I hadn't even got to the main features yet. Then I bought the game and found it was awesome. The player detail and design was so specific it was real. I didn't find the problems that others found with the controls. I found the players during the game reacting perfectly to their surrounding with no "invisible force" pushing the when they were driving in. The reality of the game is amazing. I can't find another game where you can actually recognize who the players are without look at their jersey. I though NBA Live was a fluke compared to this game. The set up of the game was better than average with the main menu screen, the game organization, etc. After reading all the negative reviews you shouldn't be discouraged in purchasing this game. If you aren't sure you could always try the demo game. But, don't get me wrong my opinion may flare your most favourite game purchased by far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2k9 2k9 is a great basketball game. The gameplay feels so real as if you were really at the game. The camera angle options are great i reccomend 2k though. And it actually gives you some what of a challenge. The statistics are accurate and there are trade updates. The interface can get annoying at times. When you do the replay editor it's just not even worth it. The animations are very real. They have just about everyones jumpshot, free throw, and dunk very real. One thing that was also annoying was that i was creating a player and it seems that they won't show up on quick game. It has the all star teams from today to back in the day. Michael Jordan and charles barkley aren't on here because of the fact they don't want to have anything to do with it. However the jordan team is on here. The game is overall a great game and also very addicting

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best on the market Ignore all the bad reviews this is one of the best if not the best games on the market. NBA 09 the inside is so unrealistic compared to this game. I think this game is better than NBA live 09 this game is so realistic and it's way better than NBA 2k8. If you play NBA 09 then you play this you'll never want to play it again because this game is way more realistic. The rosters are mostly up to date and if you have online service on your game you can update your rosters, and unlock Michael Jordan. I like this game because if someone gets injured while playing in real life you can't play with them. You should see it in HD it is so realistic it's like you're actually in the game. So if you don't have it by now please do yourself a favor and go get it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Fun This game is so freakin fun! I play for like 2 hours a day. When i first got it i played it like once and didn't touch it till like 2 weeks ago and now i cant put it down. If u make a season you get really into it. Its like I'm in the game where every shot matters and then its always fun to jack around with the all stars. Recently i download michael jordan and it so much fun to play as him. I know it kinda unrealistic but who cares it a video game! If i wanted it to be realistic i would go outside to play! Its also a great game to play against friends, a head- to- head match to see who is the best! Even though we all know kobe and lebron are cheap cause they make every shot the take it so fun! I defiantly recommend this game to all ages!! Go and buy it, its a great deal!
