Summary: This game is really fun to play. The game got closer to real life gameplay, mainly in the sense of the way the offense moves, the players are constantly moving to the right places. One think I don't like is how the wing players (SG and SF) tend to take one step inside the three point line when you kick it out to them from the post. But if you have good wing players that can drive it won't really make a difference, but I like to make threes, not take long 2-pointers.
Summary: This game is great graphic wise and it is realistic. however, their could have been minor improvements like the ball spinning when it leaves the players hands or the net actually swaying with the ball not just doing its automatic shake. the game itself is great and the new features brought to it make it greatly realistic like dna 365 for example.
Summary: This is an awesome basketball game for all those who like sports games on the PS3, it has a few new features but it is pretty much the same as what it has been all these years, however still good.
Summary: Awesome game, great graphics..would be better if it supported 1080p..720p only! But overall very entertaining, EA needs to work on their menu as it takes a long time to load, there are a few glitches that can be addressed, but for the most part its a very smooth game...
Summary: You are either an EA fan or a 2K fan. I myself like EA. I like the improvements to online updating to stay current with hot and cold players along with transactions. There are a few more play modes cool additions as well. My only con with the game is the graphics, not that the graphics are bad just being on the 360 or the PS3 I expect top notch graphics, I think they could get more detail and a more polished look.
NBA LIVE 09 (PS3): Nba 09 last nba live i had before i used the 2k series
14 September 2011
Summary: THIS IS A REVIEW I DID FOR XBOX BUT THERE IS NO LIVE 09 XBOX SO I HAVE LISTED AS PS3 AS THEY ARE THE SAME GAME AND SO I CAN GET MY POINT ACROSS. Nba 09 was the last nba live game i played in that series as i moved over to the 2k franchise again in 2011. I found nba 09 still a great game at the time as the gameplay still had an authentic feel to make you feel in the game.
Pros: Good game and shooting style to my 1st xbox bball game
Summary: NBA Live 09 is by the best NBA Live game so far, it takes basketball simulation to the next level, there is a new downloadable content which keeps your rosters totally up to date with the actual NBA one. The game is smooth and plays so well, the likenesses and kits and courts are fantastic, its the total package! if you like NBA games you'll love this!
Summary: i recently had an "american sports craving" as ive not played on any of those sorts of game since perhaps the megadrive, so i got madden 09, nhl 09, nba2k9 and this, nba live 09. i must say, as with most EA sports titles, they get the "fit and finish" or "polish" pretty much spot on.
Conclusion: Must admit i do not have vast experience in basketball games but i really enjoyed this and have it pre ordered. I downloaded the demo or this and 2K8 one and i personally preferred NBA Live.
