NBA 2K3 (PS2/XB/GC) - Screens

by Rainier on Sept. 5, 2002 @ 6:24 p.m. PDT | Filed under News

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. It’s all happening in NBA 2K3. 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 celebrity’s lap. Check the new screens from the xbox, playstation and gamecube version!
