Great basketball game, not very much basketball though.

This is a game about basketball. If you let your child play the NFL games this has the same amount of violence. You can play online and chat, so if your child plays online he might hear some language. That is the reason the I put "Too Much Swearing"

This title has:

Easy to play/use
Too much violence
Too much swearing

Is It Any Good?

Chosen One is not a terrible game by any means, but it definitely is a niche title. The presentation of the title is somewhat disappointing, as the graphics seem gears towards the PS2 level of sharpness, and the emphasis on tricks really detracts from what possibly could be an entertaining playground basketball-type experience.
