NBA 09 - The Inside

Postby Dee4Three on Tue Feb 13, 2018 1:17 am

Kind of wanted to discuss this game. Who played it?

I never got my hands on it, but it was the last basketball game from this company. Going by the videos, it didn't look like the worst. The graphics weren't bad (Even unique), the jump shots also look really solid. I am sure the draw to this game was mycareer type mode, but what other features did you like in this game?

Actually, some of the mechanics look NBA Live-Esque.

I haven't played 09, but I did get my hands on a copy of 08 on PS2, which I covered for Wayback Wednesday a couple of months back: http://www.nba-live.com/ww-the-life-nba-08/

I wasn't a big fan of the story mode at all. It was an interesting concept, but rather tedious. Gameplay, at least on PS2, was definitely inferior to both NBA Live and NBA 2K.

I'd be interested to know as well. I've only got a 360 from that generation, so I wouldn't be able to check it out, even if I could find it. The only PAL PS2 version I could find on eBay was 08, but I figured I'd pick it up to see what it was like, and write the feature on it.

I used to play NBA 07. I remember putting up myself -50 in a game, still beating opponents in Hall Of Fame mode. A few months ago I tried to recreate something similar to Kobe's 81 point game performance. I found myself scoring like 55 with Kobe in the half while everyone else scored equally too. Too cheesy but sort of fun game.
