NBA is another branch that EA have Expanded, with the addition of NBA street homecourt.
The game in itself is a street style basketball game, which enables you as the player to dunk, pass, alleyoop in crazy ways never done before.
The 'In' Game***
The Game was made in 2008 by EA BIG(just another name for EA) and featured some of the biggest names in Basketball, in they're street version.
Such as Allen Iverson and yes it does have the legend Kobe Bryant!.
The main game mode is Homecourt, which is a career mode which is featured on mostly all modern day playstation games.
After seeing this bargain and 'CEX game exchange' I could not resist buying this edition of street ball.
The controls are rather simple - but the game enables you to pull off some 'cool' moves, you can for instance pull off dribbles through legs, steals , and dunk three times in a row.
The gameplay - For one of the first EA street ball games, I think the Engine is great. Don't tell me that doing a helicopter reverse dunk dosen't please you!
It is very advanced for EA's first attack on basketball streetwise.
Gimme some more of it!****
The game is rather addicitive aswell, all be it rather a boring ending, I could not wait until I received an offer for a player, then I had to decide who to drop etc, and it gave the game a real feeling. You can choose your team and play with who you want.
One thing I will say is the gameplay is rather slow for a basketball game, you often see your players jumping 10m+ into the air waiting for an alleyoop, realistic I think not.
Plus if you are an experienced baller this game will entertain you for a maximum of 10 hours.
Wheres the Bonus?***
No bonus content aswell is another major EA flop, as I was looking forward to some great interviews with legends.
Also It does not feature the legend MIchael Jordan? With no playable Jordan the value to me goes down.
We don't just want the Modern Legends, We want Old School.
The in game sound-tracks are... wait for it ... terrible.
Me being hard to impress, I was expecting basketball tracks such as
Bow Wow - Basketball
Biggie Smalls - Victory
Your average Gangster basketball tracks, you won't find that here though, instead you will find the Neighbours theme tune and the Ice cream van jingle songs.
Well not them obviously but It isn't that different. People like Omarion sing the background. I want a basketball track!
If you want value, get NBA Live 2k9 - If you want to play street - you know where to go.
