Microsoft's going head to head with the big sports names with its very own NBA game. Get ready to test your skillz with some serious basketball competition.

Electronic Arts (EA) is the master of sports games but Microsoft doesn't like being second best so it decided to make NBA Inside Drive 2000. Now Big Bill has hit the courts with this hot basketball game. Can you handle hardcore action for your home computer?

NBA Inside Drive 2000's graphics are all about the details. The courts look real and the players are nicely lifelike - right down to their faces. It's not as snazzy as some of the EA basketball games but it looks good.


The sound is a major score. Kevin Calabro and Marques Johnson are the announcers and they're awesome. They crack jokes, make smart-alec comments and keep the chatter up during the game. The courtside's busy with fans roaring and whistles blowing. It sounds like you're really in the game.


The action is almost real. The big guys can lay the smackdown, 3-pointers are hard to score and it takes serious skill to beat a pro team. NBA Inside Drive 2000 is for hardcore players only and you'd better have a gamepad or you'll get your butt bounced around the court like a little wuss.


If you've got game and you want to try this one head to Microsoft's NBA Inside Drive 2000 official site for the demo. Click the 'Downloads' button on the left and download a copy. It's a 21MB file so if you're on a modem it'll take about an hour.


Thumbs Up:

  • Announcers with attitude.
  • Very realistic./li>
  • Download the demo for free.

  • Thumbs Down:

  • Holy scooby-snacks it's hard!
  • No trading/career mode.

  • Are the controls hard to learn?

    The keyboard controls are tricky - you're better off with a gamepad.

    How hard is the game?

    Nasty hard!
