It?s all about the egos in the NBA, and such is the case with NBA video games. Not about to let the competition get a leg up, Sega returns with a blistering installment of its pro basketball title, and this time it?s shooting for the championship. Choose your NBA franchise and try to take your club from the opening tip right on through to the Playoffs. All of the teams and players are ready for action, and you even get access to the real arenas, logos, and uniforms. The AI has been vastly improved for this version of the game, resulting in computer defenses that are harder to read than Phil Jackson's mind. New motion-capture animation makes the game look and feel like the real thing (or at least as close as anyone's ever come), and extensive research has yielded accurate playbooks for each team. Another notable addition is the game's ability to track your performance online and show you how you stack up against the world?s top gamers. In addition to the standard NBA environments, NBA 2K2 lets you play street ball in Oakland, New York, or Chicago.
