    There seems to be a couple of different basketball games, does anyone know which one is the best? Or which they prefer.

    Thanks.


    Also is there an option to create your own team on any of them?

    :cool:

    The only regular basketball game to be relased is NBA Live (from my experience). I've only played a few but they seem decent.

    The 'street' type ones are always more style over substance.

    NBA Live? Haha, that's rubbish.

    NBA 2K9 - best basketball game ever. Realistic as hell.

    And after you get NBA 2K9 watch these tutorials: http://www.youtube.com/user/ZihinMaster - they're extremely helpful and the guy is damn cool.

    I really liked NBA08, I'm assuming NBA09 is even better.

    Gamespot score both 08 and 09 really low, but I think unfairly.

    It's a sony game so only available for PS2 and PS3. There is a demo on the PSN store which you can get for free.

    Do not buy NBA Live and for the love of Arsene don't consider NBA09

    NBA 2K9 is what you want...

    I'm not a massive BBall fan, but I got NBA Street when the PS2 had just come out (black boxed games ) and I loved it...
