The 2009 season for sports videogames will forever be known as the year that the online world finally went beyond what was possible on a single console. Playing multiplayer in a sports game used to mean a one-on-one affair. No longer. Now every athlete on the court, rink or pitch is totally controlled by a human -- for better or worse. The way it should be.
NBA 2K9 is yet another sports offering joining the ranks of those expanding their multiplayer realm. Like every other title out there it offers the chance for every player on the court to be controlled by you and your friends, thus making for a basketball experience unlike what gamers have had in the past.
