Regular Readers (And if you aren't one, why not?) will know I gave NBA 2K9 a very high score, only not granting it classic status because of some control issues. That was the first time I'd played one of the 2K Sports NBA games, having previously stuck with EA's NBA Live franchise. What a fool I was. Granted I had fun, but since I've crossed over, I realise just how flawed EA's products are.
Having said that, if you're prepared to live with the outdated rosters and team ratings, this will be good enough to fill a basketball-shaped hole in your soul.
As with most games in the Live series, it's tough to get to grips with, but once you have you'll never lose - unless the computer cheats and buries 99% of its shots.
Get it if you own a system incapable of running NBA 2K9.
