Game Revolution writes: "Ballers is, of course, only following the lead of EA's NBA Street franchise, which itself is modeled on the "street" ball hyped in the ubiquitous ESPN And1 Tour. But where both And1 and NBA Street (to a lesser extent) get both the histrionics and humor of the carnivalesque and fundamentals-abandoning showmanship of street basketball, Ballers humorlessly goes through the motions, as detached and lifeless as Wilt Chamberlain's 19,999th lay must have been.
Ballers: Chosen One puts you in the shoes of a customizable basketball player working your way up a fictional street-ball tournament to attain the title of "The Chosen One". To get there, you have to play in a series of short challenge-based matches against NBA players, using complicated-looking jukes and over-the-top dunks to win. Most of these games are one-on-one, but a few are two-on-two or one-on-one-on-one (three players, every man for himself)."
