It's the ultimate!
"Dribble Drive... In the lane... Put it up... Score!"
Ultimate Basketball captures all the thrills and energy of a real full-court ball game. You are in command; leading the court, making the plays, and scoring the points. Want close ups? Go for the slam or a 3-pointer and let the full-screen animation blow you away! When your men start to drag, don't worry - substitute! It's all here; pro-basketball at your fingertips!
