Schade, schade, schade. Ein erfolgreiches Spielprinzip wird durch uninspirierte Grafik und einen im Einzelspielermodus zu hoch angesetzten Schwierigkeitsgrad in die zweite Liga der Basketballspiele verdammt. Auch die Mini-Spiele -an sich eine gute Idee- vermögen da nicht mehr die Karre aus dem Dreck zu ziehen. Wer ein kurzweiliges Basketball-Vergnügen für zwei Spieler sucht oder sich generell nur die letzten fünf Minuten eines NBA-Spieles anschaut, wird sicherlich gefallen an NBA Hoopz finden, sollte jedoch vorher ein Probespielchen wagen. Alle anderen werden ihre Hoffnung wahrscheinlich auf das ähnlich gelagerte NBA Street setzen, das im Laufe des Jahres erscheinen soll.

Midways nya basketspel känns inte direkt revolutionerande, men gillar man arkadbasket och har tröttnat på utbudet till PlayStation är det värt ett försök.

Ik durf te stellen dat deze game zelfs met twee spelers gigantisch tegenvalt. Je zult je meer lopen te ergeren aan de computer gestuurde medespeler dan dat je daadwerkelijk een bal door het netje krijgt.

I’m no Red Auerbach, so fast arcade action is fine by me, but there are two key faults that force me to tell NBA Hoopz to grab some pine at the far end of the PS2 basketball bench. One, and the most severe, is the graphics. The character models are absolutely laughable. During a game of Around the World, I could see the polygon that made up Vince Carter’s neck jutting out through his shoulder blade. Compared to NBA 2K1, it's shameful how shabby NBA Hoopz looks. The second problem actually stems from one of the ostensible “improvements” that Eurocom made – ramping up the action to include three players per side. While this sounds great in theory, it generally manages to bog down the play on the court, as there’s just too many people in the lane at once. Look elsewhere for your roundball kicks.

Oubliez vite cette production sans saveur qui tente de plagier le gameplay arcade du mythique NBA Jam d'antan sans parvenir à y ajouter un soupçon d'originalité. Les ressources de la PS2 ne sont absolument pas exploitées, et l'on se lasse vite de ces matches surréalistes qui s'enchaînent tous de façon identique.

We would try and make jokes by spelling words with a "z," but we're just too tired. Playing sports games that don't reinvent or add to the formula they're based on is like flogging a dead horse. While the addition of one man per team for 3 vs 3 play creates more passing options, and the inclusion of selected mini-games provides a diversion from repetitive "classic" gameplay, Hoopz fails to spark the revolution next-generation arcade basketball so desperately needs.
