ActionTrip by Uros "2Lions" Jojic

"...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 NBC."
