NBA Ballers: Phenom review

  • Phat blacktop tricks
  • Customization galore
  • Fast, twitchy roundball action
  • Mundane side-quests
  • Lackluster environments
  • Frustrating turnovers

Street careering aside, Phenom offers an excellent 1-on-1-on-1 mode that's the next best thing to walking your ass to the park. Two-on-two mode is hampered by poor AI, but it's good for a quick pickup game if you can get a couple simians with opposable thumbs to join in. NBA Ballers: Phenom is built around a solid core but has gone beyond its limits, like when Michael Jordan quit the NBA to play minor-league baseball. Apparently, doing one thing really well just isn’t enough.
