Winter is basketball season. If you’re a fan, you’ll probably need Microsoft Basketball (Microsoft). It looks and runs exactly like Microsoft Baseball and has the same shortcomings: tons of content and limited ways to access it. That understood, it’s a good reference work to have, unless your team is in the A.B.A. If that’s the case, you won’t find much of interest. The NBA is the focus. Seven sections (identical to Microsoft Baseball) let you track a player, a team, or the history of the game, or you can test your knowledge in the Trivia game. Our reviewers appeared a bit chastened after a trivia session. Along with all the infomation, you get the smooth operation expected from any Microsofttitle.
