    I really enjoyed this game. The aracadic aspects of it really mad it enjoyable.

    I guess Ive never been a big fan of the basketball sim games. I prefer games like this, where you can do ridiculous dunks from half court, set the basket on fire, and stuff like that. This game is a classic and I hate... Read Full Review
