"...After playing the game for several weeks now, I
can guarantee to sports fans worldwide that this is the most fun basketball
simulation on the market. It all starts with some cool beats from Snoop Dogg,
and ends with the amazing sounds of an aching rim after a 350 pound
monster-like Shaq does his trademark one-handed power jam under the basket.
Kobe shakes and bakes, and uses his famous crossover dribble, and if you master
the controls properly which are intuitive and easy to get into, you'll learn
that there is a whole barrage of one-on-one moves just waiting to be explored.
This time around, special attention was given to great one-on-one players like
say, Tracy McGrady. If you wanna stop McGrady from scoring 50 on you every
night, you just gotta double up, because he'll school a single defender like
you wouldn't believe. Naturally, this works the other way around as well, so
Kobe, or AI
or whoever it is of these great players that's on your
roster will get just as many opportunities to score as the next superstar. The
accent in NBA Live 2003 is on the fast breaks, high-flying dunks and quick
passing. But that is not to say that the half-court offense doesn't work just
as well in the game. You'll need to pass the ball a couple of times and then
get it to your power player. If he's good enough, he can back the defender and
do plenty of damage on the paint."
"In a nutshell, NBA Live 2003 is what you'd call a complete
game. It looks good and it plays great. A few AI drawbacks aside, this is hands
down the best basketball simulation on the market. I wholeheartedly recommend
it to all of you who've experienced the joys and frustrations of the magical
game of basketball - even if only by watching the Sunday play-off games on
