  • Summary: Considering I pre-ordered this game hoping to get a good basketball sim but I was wrong,, again... After almost three months of purchased it is now gathering dust from my game shelf.. And here's the reason why.. 1. The game keeps on freezing on dynasty mode.. Can't even finish a single game. 2.

  • Summary: This game would be great except they remove the damn shot meter indicator thats there duringywarmup for the games! How can one enjoy the game if shot results are arbitrary? Should be able to sink EVERY open shot if timing is right.

  • Summary: Good, not great. Good graphics, gameplay, updated rosters. NBA 2K9 has that, too, though, and a better player ratings system. One sim franchise mode had Boston as the 8th best Eastern conference team. They are probably in the top 5 hands down in being one of the best teams.

  • Summary: As a big Cleveland Cavaliers fan, I saw this game at a rental store and thought that I would give it a try. Here are the good and bad things about the game based on my opinions: The Good: 1. The graphics are very nice, and are some of the best I have seen in video games. 2.

Gameplay just sucks.

  • Summary: For all of the improvements that this series has made in terms of graphics and online features, it seems as if the gameplay gets worse every year. I can't comment on Live 08 because I didn't even bother with it last year, but it seems like the last decent Live game was probably 05 or 06.

It's OK

  • Summary: I ordered this for two teenage boys who do not have much interest in basketball. I ordered this and a NCAA 09 football game. Clearly this video game did not capture their interest as well as the football one did. They play it occassionally, but they definately like the football one better.

Better than before, but not by much

  • Summary: NBA LIVE has a better playcalling system, drops down on the break really easy that's my favorite new edition, outside of LIVE 365. But LIVE 365 has a dark shadow across it, because the gameplay is still not up to par with NBA 2K9, not even close guys. This game is easy as pie to pick up and play.

365 doesn't make up for sorry gameplay

  • Summary: the last live i played that was any good was 2005. i thought that since this was 09 and it has the 365 and all that hype i heard that this would've been a good buy. it is not, the 365 is cool but the gameplay to me is absolutely terrible. there is no rhythm at all with the players.

Cool Features, but awful game play

  • Summary: I was disappointed in this game. The graphics are terrific, the Live 365 feature ahead of the times, but I found the game play to be horrendous. Previous editions of NBA Live were much better. I sold this game and have not missed it at all.
