The delivery was, as always, flawless.The Game: Well, first of all, I come from the world of football games, but I also like to watch basketball (preferably live in the hall) and so I bought this game as a complementary sports game. The first thing you notice when you take a look at the description is that there are an incredible number of key combinations with which you can simulate a real basketball game, up to the ultra-crisp particular movements, dunks, throws, attacking moves and defensive behaviour - if you are not as modest as I am;-)What struck me second and what was the reason, why I took this game - after initial frustrations - only after 4 months out of the cupboard again (but since then it has been playing it obsessively), that without the above.g. blatant moves, a game in the "normal" degree of difficulty can hardly win - at least without previous experience with console basketball games. The own hit rate is manageable, the opponent hits everything and so the first game (LA against Miami - this is for some reasons the typical PS4 entry game before you even get into the main menu) was clearly lost with 20 points...Completely different the rookie mode:Triple odds above 80%: No problemunder the basket quota over 80%: No problemOpponent's throw quota: manageableResult: Winning with 20 points and more (no problem)How should I rate this game after 5 months?Graphically It's 1A, of the possibilities you have as a "professional" gamer it's excellent, the comments are quite cool (not so annoying German sleeping car comments, but throughout English), the tactical possibilities are varied, the degree of difficulty adjustment is severe (rookie is too easy.), the game is not easy to play, "Normal" is at least in the beginning quite tricky, I haven't tried expert mode yet, but that would probably end sadly), the addiction factor is nevertheless quite high, the playing time can be determined individually, there are quite lovely training tools, the popular February contests (Dunks, Dreier, rookie-match and the NBA All-Star-Game) and much more to discover. You can start your own basketball career or work as a manager (but still control the games yourself, but also simulate them).So the game has everything it needs.Thanks to the described "gaps" in the difficulty levels, but "only" 4 stars. Should the estimation change in addition, I will increase to 5 stars.
