NBA Live 09's gameplay has again seen some improvement, but there are still a few rough edges.

  • 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.
  • 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.

  • 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.
