A treasured friend gifted me this game and it filled me with joy. Who doesn't enjoy free stuff!

After many painful minutes of trying to get to the main powerpoint slide it instantly crashed when I tried actually playing the actual basketball game. Then it hit me like a ton of bricks, this game is forever in my library of games.

If you truly hate someone, want to be a d*ck to a friend like mine or taint your steam profile with bad games you've found the game for you!

Otherwise abandon hope now.

There's no game in this.
There's no way to sanely navigate the menu, and some of the buttons are broken.

Spend your money on bubble gum instead of this.

Pre-Release Review
This game has been uninstalled on My PC since the first 143 seconds of opening it up. I'm not sure I would even call this a "game" as it is more like a powerpoint presentation. Windows notepad is more fun than this program. The menu is horrid, the grammar is horrid, player names are spelt incorrectly.

I still see this in my game library at times and have even googled "how to dis-own a steam game" because it insults my library by just being there in the list.

If I didn't already own this game, and Steam were forceably giving it to people with an option of paying $2 to NOT own it, then I would pay.

That is how bad it is. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!
