  • Summary: It's okay but there are a lot of things that could have been added to make it better and some of the new features that were added didn't seem necessary...

EA is losing it

B. Litman, Amazon

  • Summary: I've been an NBA Live guy my whole life but I must say that NBA2K takes the cake for this year. Since XBOX360 and PS3 came out, the games have focused way too much on extra features (which are incredible if you have 5 hours a day playing video games) and not enough time on the gameplay.

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.

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.

  • Summary: This game is not all that because in an effort to make it more realistic the gameplay itself is sacrificed.The players mimic theselves in real life but just as in real life the majority of the players are slow and stiff,such as Shaq.I think they need to create a live with the realistic look but with...

365 is great, but gameplay is still choppy

  • Summary: I've played the Live series off-and-on since 96', and think that the gameplay just hasn't been the same in the last few years, especially compared to the 2K series. I have 2k8 and have played 2k9 and they just feel more fluid; the gameplay is faster, the controls are more responsive, and 2k is...

  • Summary: Improved slightly over last years NBA Live 08, but still has a long way to go if it ever wants to be in the same league as NBA 2k series. Player likenesses are horrendous, numerous bugs such as players going straight through other players, players get stuck in animations sequences which is annoying,...

  • Summary: A joke compared to nba 2k games. Still no shooting stick, poor graphics resulting in blurred players i can hardly tell who's who. In nba 2k it's clear as the player models have the best graphics and the surrounds a bit less.

Could have been better

  • Summary: Ah well, if you haven't played a bball game in a while, like I hadn't before buying NBA Live 09, it may take a while until you get the hang of the controls, but it's not going to be long before you start winning games.
