VARITY OR VISION: NBA SIMULATION

Recommendation: If you want to know what it's like to go from a promising rookie to being the next Allen Iverson or LeBron James, this game is for you. This playstation act should provide enough rich content to keep you entertained for quite a while.

The synopsis of the game is that NBA smudges the lines between reality and fantasy by totally throwing you into you into the life of an NBA superstar. Pretty much every aspect of an NBA player's career is put in a nutshell in The Life, a story mode that takes you away in the court and into the locker room and personal life of your player. By far, the Life's story mode is the best feature in the game. It adds so much depth to the overall experience - pre-draft workouts, press conferences, on-court and off-court drama, and the chance to become a superstar of Jordan-sequel proportions. How wonderful it would be you digitally place your own face on your superstar. It's a quantum leap past other NBA simulators that focus only on the season schedules, stats and rosters. :- ) Playing the basketball games during the life can take a back seat to all the off-court action because there's nothing in the game that you haven't seen in other NBA simulations. Gameplay during a basketball game is pretty standard, although players do talk trash and it is entertaining.
