All in all, this is a very solid game. It manages to provide an enjoyable basketball experience for the whole spectrum of basketball fans; deep enough for the hardcore NBA fan, yet still approachable for the novice. While even the Recruit difficulty is more difficult than PSLS would like to see, it is still a very fun, playable experience.
Even after you have exhausted your thirst for basketball, there is still a lot of fun to be had with the mini-games. If *wink* *nudge* they were to release the mini-games as a standalone bundle on the PSN, they would find their coffers overflowing.
