Trotz des taktiklastigen Spielverlaufs sollte sich kein Basketball-Fan NBA Courtside entgehen lassen, das durch eine grandiose Grafik und ein sehr gut beherrschbares Gameplay glänzt. Kobe Bryant, selbst ein begeistertet Spieler, war mit seinem „eigenen“ Spiel auf jeden Fall hochzufrieden.
Mega Fun
Was Konami damals mit ISS 64 gelang, schafft nunmehr dieses sportliche Modul im Basketballbereich: Es deklassiert förmlich die Breite Palette an Korbwerfereien. Egal ob Spielkultur, künstliche Intelligenz oder Vielfalt an Aktionsmöglichkeiten, die Konkurrenz sieht gegen NBA Courtside stets ziemlich alt aus.
Assurément le meilleur jeu de basket sur Nintendo 64. Son achat se révélera vite indispensable pour tous les amateurs de simulation sportive.
Consoles Plus
Enfin une simulation de basket digne de ce nom sur N64. Si le jeu avait été un peu plus rapide, il aurait atteint des sommets !
Power Unlimited
NBA Courtside behoort absoluut tot de betere basketbal games van de laatste tijd. De levensechte acties en de subtiele bewegingen van de spelers maken het niet alleen tot een van de meest realistische games maar zorgen er ook voor da het werkelijk adembenemend is om te spelen.
All Game Guide
Overall, this is a fun, realistic basketball game and a worthy purchase for any sports fan.
Nintendo Power Magazine
It's fun and full-featured, packed into a mere 96-megabit Pak. With all the trading and reaction options, the replay value is very high. The game is challenging but fun, and ultra realistic.

Was I satisfied? Well, considering Courtside is Left Field's shot at the N64, yeah i would say i was pleased with this game. Its also THE best b-ball game for N64 at this time. The game sports many modes, and even gives the option of a create-a-player mode. Left Field did some nice work, and I hope to see some more, both in this sport and in others.

Hey, I love Kobe. I love the Lakers. They're my favorite team and have been for years. But Kobe Bryant's NBA Courtside just isn't as good as it could have been. Considering what's out there, this is the best choice for the N64, but not the best choice overall. Much like the player, this one could use a few more months in the oven.
