Game Review

TV Sports Basketball is the second game in the tv-style sports simulations series created by Cinemaware.

The game was created for the Amiga then ported to MS-DOS. Following the example of TV Sports Football, released one year before, Basketball adopts the same style, with different camera angles, change of view depending on the position of the ball, cutscenes, crowd sounds, announcer's previews, and more. It's really like watching a basketball match on the TV.

But it's not just about the presentation and atmosphere. TV Sports Basketball is one of the best sports games made for the Amiga, with plenty of stats, available moves, and options. You can decide to control always the same player or the one with the ball. Choosing when to pass or shoot is fundamental because the defense will try to block you or steal the ball. You will have to decide the best times to substitute players because sometimes players that come from the bench will allow you to win, just like in real life. You can edit all your athlete's attributes and create your custom teams. Stats influence the performance, for example, the accuracy of the shoots, but there just enough randomness to make things fun and challenging.

Great graphics, dynamic sounds, and excellent gameplay make this game an all-time favorite.
