Can you say "Dynasty?" After two years of roundball domination on Dreamcast, Sega Sports unleashes its award-winning NBA franchise on the next-generation basketball court with NBA 2K2. Building upon a foundation of vibrant graphics and crisp, detailed player animation, NBA 2K2 talks the talk and walks the walk! High pick and roll? We got it! Killer crossover? It's in there! The big man's game? You betcha! On offense, use the versatile low post game to drop step around your defender and explode past him for a posterizing dunk, back him down into the key and pull up for a sweet hook, or lull him to sleep and pass to the open man. Tight AI defenders take away the baseline, deftly rotate to the open man, and establish rebounding position in the paint. Sharper skills and smarter D elevate your game to a higher level and make NBA 2K2 the one to beat.

Thanks to the street-ball mode, it's like there are two games in one--the graphics are on par with most any basketball game on the market, and the gameplay is tight and intuitive.
