I said in my review of NBA
that that game was "The most enjoyable basketball console
game you will ever play!" Well, at the time it was. However
there is a new game in the market that puts a new spin on
the basketball genre.
Ballers is over the top, in your face, and about as subtle
as a slap in the face with a wet fish, however it has charm
by the bucketsful. There is a whole heap of impressive gaming
modes. These include a quick play, a career mode, and an on-line
mode that allows you to keep an eye on records and tournament
can play as any one of a number of basketball stars, or design
your own character. This later option allows you to customise
a player to look like yourself - which adds a lot to the overall
game. And even if you are extremely overweight idle waster
(like our editor) you can still design a character that looks
almost identical to you - er... unless you happen to be female.
And once you've created your character you can constantly
upgrade his clothing and jewellery.

non basketball fan, which means that outside of North America
sales are not likely to be very high.

I sailed through the next three opponents, got stuck again
and then sailed through another line of guys.
from these gripes, NBA Ballers represents a very addictive
