    What was EA thinking when they made this? Score: 3.3/10

    Every year our expectations grow higher, as we expect better graphics, gameplay and modes. Does this game meet those expectations? Absolutely not! Everything about the game is poorly done. The models still have big h... Read Full Review

    Good but not enough...

    For idiots like myself. Actually nothings wrong with the game but its just that they made the game more harder to play. They changed the controls of the dunks and the lay-ups ( why did they change it anyway?!) and so... Read Full Review

    not worthy to be bought

    This is really bad, rookies don't have pictures on their profiles and a number of players are missing. The graphics didn't improve and the models still have large heads. The classy interface is deceiving, they should ... Read Full Review
