Excerpt: EA's NBA Live franchise continues on the PSX, and its newest addition to the series is NBA Live 2000. It is by all means the greatest basketball simulator, but with the addition of the legendary Michael Jordan, this might be the ultimate simulator for some basketball fans. I'm sure you might have heard this before but I just wanted to confirm it.
Excerpt: The gameplay graphics were pretty impressive. I must admit, they looked good. The court even appeared to be accurately portrayed. I wish I could say the same about the crowd, but that's just asking too much out of the PlayStation. I did like the fact that EA decided to go with the larger images this year. The larger player graphics help to bring out the detail in the models. I was also impressed with the likeness of the players. All in all, everything looked good.
Conclusion: NBA Live 2000 does virtually everything right, or at least exceptionally well. There are no game play killing bugs to be found, and there are so many things to do within the game itself that it is hard to really criticize the game in a serious way. So hoops fans can rejoice; EA has finally delivered on all of the promise they have shown the past few years. This is a first-rate sports game.
