Description of TV Sports: Basketball

TV Sports Basketball is, without a doubt, Cinemaware's best sport game and one of the best basketball games ever made.

Everything that we've come to expect from Cinemaware is included in the game, from the amazing opening sequence to the announcer's previews, to being able to edit all aspects of the players attributes. Although great as a one-player game, it is much more fun playing human opponents. Those who are reflexes-impaired can choose to only manage the team and watch the players carry out their strategies on the court. There's the option of playing against each other or playing on the same team with each other. You have the option of controlling a specific player or whatever player has the ball.

Joystick control is excellent, its very responsive and easy to pull off different kinds of shots. The better your players shooting attribute, the more accuracy of his shot. You can even pull off some razzle dazzle when close to the basket. This can include slamdunks, to full body turning slams. You can even alley oop.

The game is about as realistic as possible for computer basketball. The graphics and animations are great, but it's the sound that adds all the atmosphere. You can actually hear the squeeks of the players sneakers! Another great touch is the crowd sounds. If you're the home team, you will hear cheers when the team is doing well, the better you play, the louder the cheers. Start to play bad and the crowd will actually boo you. Although there is some luck involved in shooting, there is also plenty of skill involved. You must substitute players at appropriate times and know when to pass and shoot.

In conclusion, I have to say that this is one of the best sports simulations that I have played on the Amiga. Every game is different and no two teams play alike. Some teams are better than others, although for some reason the Cinemaware team is always one of the best. If you are a fan of basketball, this is a keeper.
