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. Itís 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 celebrityís 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.





Replays, scores, music, and more are displayed in the famous ESPN style.

Fronting, faking, pivoting and facing up actions, and a total control drop step you can use to change direction mid-move.

Effectively block out opponents for a better shot at grabbing a board.

Run your team. Recruit players, hire and fire coaches, develop young players, scout foreign talent, and assess injuries. Extensive Playbooks with new plays that take advantage of teamsí star players.

More accurate play-by-play, and more in-depth stats and performance comparisons.

IGN Cube:

"NBA 2K3 is the most true-to-life representation of basketball in videogame form yet. Last year I think NBA 2K2 was rated highly because it was simply the best basketball game on GameCube, and it was ahead of the competition. NBA 2K3 has really improved on a lot -- much more than I imagined it would..."


Game Spot:
"NBA 2K3 is one of the most accurate representations of professional basketball to date. From posting up on the block to driving through the lane for a layup or a monstrous dunk, nearly every facet of the sport is executed very well, though that's not to say that there aren't some chinks in NBA 2K3's armor..."
