NBA Courtside 2002

System: Nintendo GameCube Release date: 24/05/2002

Developed exclusively for Nintendo GameCube by Nintendo and Left Field, NBA Courtside 2002 taps into the power of Nintendo GameCube to deliver authentic NBA action that makes other basketball games look like they're stuck in the era of the two-handed jump shot. Up to four players can hit the hardwood simultaneously and talk trash to their hearts' content as they bust sweet crossovers, first-step jukes and monster dunks. NBA Courtside 2002 delivers a one-two punch of slick graphics and tight gameplay. Precise face mapping ensures that your favourite ballers are as realistic as that 2-by-3 poster hanging in your bedroom. Fluid player animation brings the game to smooth-as-silk life.The moves in this game look so good because Left Field spent two days with NBA superstar Kobe Bryant in an intense motion-capture session. The game boasts an astounding 2,000 motion captioned moves, including 300 from King Kobe himself. NBA Courtside 2002 gives sports fans everything they expect from a basketball game, including full-season scheduling, momentum shifts, complete stats and a Create-A-Player feature. Open up your game by ripping some or all pages from the rulebook. The savvy coach within you can call plays on the fly and substitute for tired or injured players. Unique to NBA Courtside 2002 is an Adrenaline button that gives you the extra juice needed to turn an everyday lay-up into an ankle-breaking reverse jam. Spot-on commentary brings the action to life. A comprehensive training mode and multiple difficulty levels let you ramp up to superstar status at your own pace. NBA Courtside 2002 doubles your fun with an over-the-top Arcade Mode. Set on a rooftop court, this 3-on-3 flashfest is a star-studded showcase of full-court passes, jaw-dropping jukes and sky-scraping slams. For big points, pump up your Momentum Meter and score from a randomly appearing Hotspot.
