This game is probably the best basketball game out. The graphics are excellent with real player faces and accessories. It shows players routines before shooting a free throw, eg. Jason kidd blows a kiss before a free throw.
Great 24/7 mode where you create your own player and have one-on-one battles with real nba players untill you improve your skills. Good soundtrack for all the hip-hop fans with songs from lil'kim, big jay etc. Easy-to use roster management with editable stats for all players, create your own team, you can also play as legends from the 60's-90's (no Jordan).
Lots of codes to unlock during the game. Overall this game is way better than nba live 2004, and i would recommend it to any basketball fan.
