It's got a lot of flash in terms of play-by-play commentary and a couple of other features that weren't common at the time, like separate full and 20 second timeouts. The graphics are alright too, appearing less blocky than other games that were entering the 3D era. However, the gameplay is just OK, lacking in depth and realism (pretty much everyone dunks, albeit not NBA Jam-style or anything). It also has a buggy and cumbersome roster management system, features 1996 rosters in a 1997 setting, and was missing the usual holdout players (as well as Shaq, who was exclusive to NBA Live 97).
