'Backyard Basketball' (PS2) - Screens

by Rainier on Aug. 13, 2003 @ 1:01 p.m. PDT

For the first time ever - kid versions of NBA stars join the Backyard Kids on the PS2! The simple fun of a 3-on-3 pickup game meets the pulse-pounding action of the NBA, as kids select their favorite players and NBA uniforms, choose a cool court and start hitting jump shots — all in 3D. With the crisp graphics and responsive play of the PS2, hoopsters like Yao Ming, Tim Duncan and Kevin Garnett look sharper and more exciting than ever. Kids can become hoop heroes, controlling everything from grabbing that opening tip to nailing the buzzer-beating 3-pointer.
