    One of the best games for the PSP, and it's so underrated.

    Rated on September 06, 2009 by djagameking

    NBA '09 The Inside is one of the most addicting games for the PSP ever. You not only can play a season as your favorite team and continue with that team for years but you can play over 20 minigames. ...

    NBA 09, is surprisingly better that what I thought this game would be. Especially after how bad the other releases were

    Over all I think the folks at SEC San Diego did a good job with this release (The people who brought you 'MLB 08: THE SHOW'). Overall I was surprised on this release. I say it is worth the money. Give...

    Underrated fun blends with some nice innovation for a big step in the right direction.

    NBA 09: The Inside First Impressions (Running diary, Skip down for actual Review): The splash screen is pretty cool with real video pouring in and some snazzy tunes. Really like the image of Gino...

    If you think the ps3 version is a rip off this is the worst rip off in your life. I even rented it but its not worth 5$.

    Rated on October 25, 2008 by mike1146l

    This is the worst game ever! I haven't even got past the first level it's so hard. It says you have a 93 overall but it doesn't feel like it. Even on easy it's very hard. Its 5.0 on the ps3!!! It...

    .Good, but can potentially be much better

    Rated on November 14, 2008 by msspectac

    The life mode, mini games and finally the franchise mode make this game good, but Sony could make it way better by combining the good stuff they have with some improvements eg. further developing the ...

    NBA 09 The Inside isn't even worth $5

    Rated on March 27, 2009 by djariya

    I'm going to keep this short and sweet. If you own a PS2, stick to the NBA Live or 2K series. Sony's version is a huge bomb and I don't mean that in a good way. The controls are horrendous. The ga...

    The game itself is something you have to get used to because it's style of gameplay is not like other basketball games.

    Rated on August 06, 2009 by TheBucks777

    The game overall is good, but not great. One of the highlights of this game is The Life mode. The Life mode lets you create your own character and take him through a rigorous, yet profitable adventure...
