well i ended up getting this game and its pretty fun. some of the moves are complex but im picking them up alright. the dunk contest is a sweet feature...but it is frikin insanely hard to pull off the sweet dunks (you have to use both analog sticks and the buttons
) the game has great graphics and an awesome soundtrack. create a player is really cool....you can get your guy pretty detailed and then buy him some cool gear such as basketball jerseys, football jerseys and hockey jerseys...as well as tons of other stuff. im still learning so its hard to give an in depth review..but after the first night...im pretty happy with it.
