NBA Live 09 Review

PlayStation Universe
8 April 2009
  • Summary: NBA Live 09 delivers a respectable game of basketball in a series that has displayed questionable quality in recent years. I see even brighter days ahead for EA Canada's basketball title.
  • Pros: Live 365 is revolutionary, Animations are authentic, Online clubs keeps gamers coming back
  • Cons: Textile animations are ridiculous, Passes are sometimes inconsistent, Game-changing computer comebacks happen far too often

  • Summary: NBA Live has had a rough transition to the current generation of consoles; however, slowly but surely, the games have gotten better every year. NBA Live 09 doesn't make the same leap forward that 08 made, and the much-hyped dynamic DNA feature has little effect on the gameplay. However, new pick-and-roll controls, as well as signature playcalling, make this Live the best in several years. NBA 2K9 has "living rosters," whereas NBA Live 09 has "dynamic DNA.
  • Pros: Signature playcalling makes running plays a breeze, New pick-and-roll mechanic is simple and effective, User-friendly controls, Marv Albert and Steve Kerr do a nice job in the booth
  • Cons: Lousy defense leads to lots of dunks, Dribble moves are too often ineffective, Be a Pro mode isn't very deep

  • Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is The NBA live series have had a pretty miserable life on the next generation consoles. After holding a pretty tight grip on the PS1 and PC basketball game scene back in the 90s, things started going downhill during the PS2 and Xbox era. LIVE 08 was a very solid and fun to play basketball game. The game offered some new features and a set of different ways to play the game, but it had some problems on the side too.

  • Excerpt: At one time, NBA Live was the king of basketball games. Not only was the game the best around quality-wise, but it also sold in large numbers to anxious fans nationwide.
  • Pros: Dynamic DNA is the real deal., AI isn't dumb this year., Dynasty mode is very solid.
  • Cons: Canned animations ruin flow of the game., Rebounding and loose balls need work., Be a Pro a waste of time.

“Net niet die uitstekende dunk”

  • Excerpt: Je zou sporten als Golf (Tiger Woods), de NHL, Madden en NBA bijna vergeten nu met al dat voetbalgeweld dat voorbij komt met FIFA 09 en het komende Pro Evolution Soccer, echter blijven we ook geregeld bezig met wat andere sporten die vooral in Amerika veel populairder zijn dan voetbal en tennis in Europa. Ditmaal betreft het NBA 09, laten we hopen op een schitterende driepunter van EA.
  • Pros: Nu ook voor beginners, Grafisch in orde, Uitgebreider
  • Cons: Be a Pro mode incompleet, Physics en soms wat framerate probleempjes
