Rated 10 out of 10 by zeldahero Awesome game !
NBA 09 The Inside is an amazing PSP game and a fun basketball game . Awesome exhibition with nice amount of teams and a lot of fun with smooth controls and a hint of thrill . Random minigames and a lot of em' , My favorite is shooting bricks Which has cool levels but one major flaw and that's that the physics are terrible . You hit the ball with the top right corner of the pad or whatever it'll still go left if that's it's current main stream direction , but it's still fun . There's also another mode called "Banging The Boards" where you go one on one with another player and basketballs are flung at the hoop and you have to try and rebound them when they don't make it in , which is fun , but some times a little difficult , which is good because it's awesome to have a challenge in a game . When I first got this game I went straight to exhibition and played for hours , it's lots of fun and really addicting . This game is awesome , I'd totally recommend this to anyone with a PSP .

I first picked this game up from Gamestop, reading reviews on how good this game was supposed to be for the psp system. I really though it was a good game for what its worth. I thought the mini games were fun though I wish they could get a dunk contest some time in the future. I liked the regular season gameplay and all the minigames. One thing though I have to say on the gameplay, is that its not very true to what the team actually plays like. For instance when I played as the Chicago Bulls against the Los Angeles Lakers, i found that I was crushing them even though the Bulls in the game do not play very well. I also thought that it was too easy to get around the other players on the team. I could dunk everytime with the same player and the A.I would never catch on. I though it was fun to play though and takes up alot of youre time. I also think the sound and the comentary were also very good. The game runs smoothly and has a good soundtrack. Overall a fun game to play but lacking in certain qualities needed to be a great game.

nba 09 the inside is a fairly good game to people who like random mini games, but for the die hard basketball fan stay away from this game. The great commercial of nba 09 the inside of your guy going from the streets to the finals, "The Life" It's not on the psp, so if you bought the game for that reason like I did, you will be very disappointed. And for actually playing basketball, the graphics are great but the basketball is horrible. Anytime you pull up to shoot the person jumps heck of high to block your shot so you just shoot fade aways. Even on rookie difficulty it is extremely hard. The "Franchise" mode is extremely boring and a waste of time. The only reason its some what popular is because of the mini games and those are extremely boring and pointless if you like basketball. The one thing that really bugs me is that you can't trade players unless you're in franchise mode. Game is a waste of time get NBA Live 09 it is ten times better. So unless you like pointless mini games that have NOTHING to due with basketball, don't buy this game.
Rated 10 out of 10 by T$ BEST BASKETBALL GAME A PSP COULD EVER GET
This game is AwEsOmE!!! Not only does it have franchise, playoffs, and quick play like all of the other basketball games do, it also has a whaole bunch of fun minigames and competitions including bowling, shooting, and my most favorite pinball. This is the game for anyone who loves basketball mini games or for the real die-heart basketball player. It also has very impressive graphics sound and controls. There are lots of different camera angles to choose from to make you feel like you in the game. The teams are just like you would watch them on TV, the challenge is superb! This is that basketball game you have waited to come out for and is finally here. Dont waste your money on nba 09 or nba live 09, trust me this is the #1 basketball game that you will not want to ever stop playing.
Rated 2 out of 10 by dumsterdiver worst basketball game ever
this game was the worst basketball game ever the graphics were absolutely TERRIBLE! the players arms and legs looked like elbow macaroni. it was so bad to the point where the players jumped higher than the basket and the dunks looked terrible. the statistics were also bad. even superstars like lebron james would miss a wide open fast break layup repeatedly so the statistics were not even realistic. i will never buy a sony computer made game EVER again. so to see if it was just me and not the game that was bad i went out and bought nba live 09. it was way better and actually satisfying every thing w[that was wrong with nba 09 the inside and the good things were definitely better in nba live 09. so if you want a half way good game DO NOT BUT NBA 09 THE INSIDE!
Rated 9 out of 10 by PSPReviewer One of the better PSP basketball games
This game is just plain awesome. It contains a lot of things for you to do. The arcade games are very good this year with the addition of the pinball minigame. A lot of good arcade games are there like the 3 Point challenge, horse, dodgeball, and some new ones that are really good to pass the time. The graphics are fairly good for a psp game, and there are a bunch of modes that will not disappoint. The game runs smooth throughout, and the team plays well as a whole. The load times are very short, and even the music selection is good, however in this game, you cannot put your own custom tracks. Every aspect of this game is just great, and you will definitely not be disappointed. If you don't like basketball, this game is sure to change your mind.

This is going to be a great game. It has a blend of NBA the life, providing fans with a completely unique and inside experience of life in the league. The graphics are better then ever. Now the camera views go INSIDE THE HUDLE. NBA 09 The Inside delivers a full featured Franchise Mode allowing players to experience every facet of running their own NBA team. NBA 09 The Inside utilizes a true TV broadcast presentation with highlights, a broadcast-style camera, and a comprehensive and in-depth audio commentary with top broadcast talent. Its hot, this could be the best nba game ever.
