    Pros: Graphics
    Cons: Controls

    Summary: Kobe Bryant Courtside combines good graphics with . . . nothing. N64 must have made a mistake while making the game, because graphics is all this game has. The controls are terrible, and I find that if I try to pass the ball, I shoot it, and if I shoot ... read more
