The good parts about this game is the game play. You'll love it once you get the hang of this game at the beginning and once you get to the more experienced side, you can step it up on the hard mode which is surprisingly fun. I went against to play the All-Star team in an exhibition match on hard and let me tell you, it was just tense and it gave you that feel good competition like difficulty, but then of course I came out victorious with my old school All-Stars.
The graphics is acceptable for a PS2, but it's not the type of graphics that will make your head go crazy, so I wouldn't have a high expectation on this.
Overall, this is a solid game that you can play for fun with your friends, but just remember one thing it is too short. Go rent this game first and decide whether you like it or not, but I will guarantee you that the game play is extremely fun.
