I actually think this game was pretty well designed. I guess it just doesn't seem to hold up that well. Speaking of which, I am HORRIBLE at this game. There was only one time out of ten shots fired that I managed to make. It sure got annoying with the crowd constantly booing me. I actually have played some basketball in real life, just not as a team sport.
I thought the sounds were nice and authentic. At first, I thought you had to just keep your hand on the spacebar. That never works. When I finally learned that I had to press the space bar twice in order to advance, it didn't help me much. At least it's a good looking game.
