In a world dominated by violent media, Americans are no more eager to go to war than they were in the 1980s or the 1960s or the 1940s. Hasn't it always been someone else's problem? The overwhelming majority would rather go on thinking it had nothing to do with them and there...

What do these ratings mean?

The Players look awesome.
Never thought I'd ever say this, but the Sweat looks amazing.
The Players Progressively get more sweat as the game wears on.
Their Jerseys will start to show sweat as well. Nothing Like But Sweat!
The Players look like their real life counterparts.
The Jerseys move and sway on the Players which is way cool.
The Ball is Rendered with like a million Polygons or something.
Richard Hamilton (Detroit Pistons), when he takes a free throw he likes to bounce the ball a couple of times and then once to the right. In NBA2K6 Richard Hamilton will do exactly that when he comes to the free throw line. Very Nice.
The Play by Play announcing is very good.
The Sound Overall is done very good.

I find it a bit too difficult on the Rookie setting though.
See, me and my son like to play together on the same team and we will sometimes have trouble winning on the easiest Setting. On my own it's not a problem. But if there is going to be an easy setting, make it easy.

Note to Gamemakers;
Difficulty settings are easy enough to program into a game. Unless your not very good.
So if they could just make easy = easy. If you need to make more levels it should be pretty simple ya know.
I mean on some games you should put a counter on it. If the Player dies 30 times in a row... THEN IT IS TOO HARD... time to scale the difficulty back. Ya know, like auto adjust. Dying a million times in a game is not make any game feel realistic.
Good thing the controllers are rugged enough to take a few throws...
Of course on my PSP I can't throw the Controller :-)
Go Pistons!
