[edit] Background

In Courtside's realistic Sim Mode, you can set up a season, play the games and even create your own pro players. But if you prefer your action a little less structured, you can take on the top NBA stars in Arcade Mode for some street ball action. Features an improved passing system, hit detection and AI.

[edit] Gameplay

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 those other 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 cross-overs, first-step jukes and monster dunks

[edit] Features

  • 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.

  • NBA Courtside 2002 doubles your fun with an over-the-top Arcade Mode.
