NBA 2K3 powers forward with the kind of improvement that only results from an off-season dedicated to perfection. Imagine jump shots so real players actually adjust their movement in mid-air based on distance from the hoop and defensive pressure; a passing touch that gives you the control to skirt a defender or start a fast break; and dribble moves that let you jab left; rock right; crossover; spin and much more. It’s all happening in NBA 2K3. No other game delivers the physical element of basketball like this. Accurate impact from collisions; especially hard fouls and authoritative dunks; shot blocking with emphasis on precise hand-to-ball contact; and the ability to lunge for the loose ball; even if it means ending up on some celebrity’s lap. With commentators that analyze strategy; cutscenes portraying lifelike player interaction; uniforms that move like real fabric; and a brand new ESPN broadcast system that wraps it all together NBA 2K3 provides the complete NBA experience.
