Its tough to disagree with a lot of Chi's gripes about NBA Courtside 2002, but I dont believe that the game is as bad as Chi says. I liked the mechanical-themed menus. I thought that the players looked fairly realistic, and I have not seen a basketball game with accurate faces like Courtside has. I appreciated Courtsides slower pacing, as compared to a fast-paced arcade basketball game like NBA Jam. The game is far from perfect, Ill grant you thatbut it is a very playable basketball game that can potentially serve as the foundation for an even better sequel.
