Rated 3 out of 10 by Mr.Reviewer Another horrible basketball game to step on the court.
If yor ever played the previous NBA baller games you would know how horrible the game is. Lets go back real quick. The first NBA baller game was horrible when playing rags to riches mode the graphics looked like the game was running on a playstation one system. Other then the horrible graphics the gameplay is easy and challenging at times but after you mastered everything the game will get boring because your not challenged as much. The game is very repetitive you'll find yourself doing the same thing over and over again until your head explodes. In the second NBA ballers they took a new approach by making it pretty much a free roaming game but it was still horrible. So after collecting all of that data just imagine NBA ballers 3 and when it has a horrible title so you know the game gonna be horrible. But if you like NBA baller games then you would probably enjoy this one but to others who hated the first one and second just don't even bother with this one because it's not chosen one to be the best game of the year or week.
Rated 0 out of 10 by ZacKula who is in it???
I am wondering who is licenced to be in the game. You know that they got all the best players of today, such as LeBron James and Kevin Garnet, but DID THEY GET JORDAN and SCOTTY PIPPEN?!?!? And did they get any other players that aren't the biggest names in NBA such as Stoudemire or Ben Wallas, or any rookies such as Noah, or any seccond strings such as Gooden, or even any free agent players such as Sweetney. Although what I hope to see in this game is some of the amazing three point shooters such as Kirk Hinrick, or Gilbert Arenas. Another thing that I really want to see is a create a player setting, that is more inavated then the one in 2k8. I find that the 2k8 creat-a-player is too hard to make the player look like you want, and that it is way to easy to make all your stats perfect, I am hoping that if this game does let you create a player (especially if it lets you use your created player online), I hope that it doesn't let you make a SUPER player that is cheap to use.... ....anyhow this game looks great, but I am waiting to see all the features when the game comes out, before I buy it.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Game Fan 123 Great Game
This is by far the best basketball game I have ever played. It is very original, it has plenty of depth to it, and it has a lot of personality. The only negative I have with it is that it's kind of difficult to grab rebounds consistently. But you can usually get to the ball a fair amount of times if you run for it before your apponents do. I was expecting a game that broke off from the boring nba sim. games i've played and I ended up getting just what I wanted with this title. To me, basketball is more fun in this format, especially in a video game. And when I saw that it was by midway...the guys behind nba jam... i knew it wouldn't be that bad. I don't know what's up with all the bad reviews. I mean, its not completely realistic, but so what, its fun. If I wanted to sit through a completely realistic nba game (complete with all the boring foul calls, free throws, substitutions, "official time outs"...etc) , I'd rather watch one on tv... i mean at least my home team might get a real win on their record. at the end of it. Anyway, pick this up if you're looking for a good, arcade style basketball game with a great story mode full of challanges. Hopefully you won't be dissapointed, I wasn't.
Rated 9 out of 10 by SeahawksFAN It's a fun game!
I think this game is a lot of fun. If you're somewhat like me that likes making cool jukes, steals and of course slam dunks then you'll like this game too. The graphics are amazing and the courts to play on are awesome. Personally, I don't keep up on the latest NBA team rosters, nor do I plan to, but the players seem fine to me. However, for the 'LEGENDS' roster I do have to agree with other preview buzz raters and that's to wonder why Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen Gary Payton and Shawn Kemp are not in the game. Again, if you're not a hardcore sports game analysis critiquing EVERY detail and feature of this game then you'll love playing this as much as I do. I just rented it and wasn't sure if I'd like it. Now I plan to buy it next payday.

Glad PS3 finally got a streetball game. Has a great story mode which is pretty much the entire game.

Their not going to have Scottie Pippen or Michal Jordan but it will have Legends. For example Pistol Pete will be in the game. To see all of the People that's going to be on NBA Ballers:Chosen One.
