Summary: Another solid pretty sim. Dynamic DNA is a fresh (much needed) twist to help further imerse you in the live world. The instruction booklet is way too short. So you might need to get a guide or go online to fully get a grasp and really enjoy everything NBA live 09 has to offer.
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. A lot of the movements the players make in the game are very realistic to how real players move on the court, and aren't all messed up like the movements on older basketball games. 3.
Summary: I am playing this game and so far i like it very much. I just rented it to check out the FIBA World Tournament mode and me being from Puerto Rico is difficult to find sports games with our national team. This one have it!! NBA 2k9 is better over all video game, but this year I stick to NBA Live for that mode exclusively, Thank EA for putting national teams, I will give another review when I try the online play.
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.
Summary: EA has vastly improved this year's version of Live. As the previous reviewer stated, the graphics and announcing are amazing. I think the 365 feature will be amazing as well once the season gets started (it may bump the game to a 5 star level). The only complaint is the players lack of continuation to the basket on some fast breaks and the somewhat "plodding" nature of some player movements. I have owned 2K and Live over the last several years.
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.
