Play it Live! NBA Live 2002 is coming at you with more of an emotional basketball experience than ever before. With action similar to an NBA highlight video rather than a television broadcast shown on NBC or TNT, NBA Live 2002 brings you out of the stands and onto the court. Feel what it's like to live life in the paint.
Hear what the players are saying and see the court from the player's eyes. Wide-open gameplay around the basket opens up the game, allowing for more lay-ups, dunks, and more control in the low post. Witness tattoo-laden Allen Iverson arguing a referee's call. See an animated Steve Francis yell with emotion as he throws down a big-time dunk, and see his reaction as he celebrates afterwards. Get in the game with NBA Live 2002 for the PlayStation 2.
