Summary: AWESOME, AWESOME, AWESOME!!! This game is INCREDIBLE. The graphics are impeccable the commentary is AWESOME and controls are EASY to remember.I bought NBA LIVE 2005 a while back and was so dissapointed that I didn't buy another game until 2K9 and it has exceeded my expectations infinitely. I have some friends who said that they were disappointed because the players always lay it up instead of slamming it home.
Summary: It's a lot like 2K8, other than a few different moves that they added in. The player graphics are extremely good, but it's impossible to jump off one foot to dunk or lay it in. Marv Albert and Mark Jackson are the commentators, and theyy added almost everything for Marv Albert, but Mark Jackson doesn't say "Mama, there goes that man," so it's really disappointing and he's missing some other great lines he likes to say. The player ratings are very good.
Summary: I've gotta admit 2k games have good graphics,and this game has awesome gameplay,the controls are really easy and quick to learn,but the thing i hate is the lay-ups is the complete disappointment, i played this game a lot of time the first time i bought it, and once you go for a fast break with like people that are supposed to make layups like for example: chris paul, its a high chance of missing, thats the thing 2k has to change.this game is the same exact thing as...
Summary: If you could view 2K9 and 2K6 side by side you notice little difference in the two, the graphic is a little better on 2K9 than it is on 2K6. The reason I am comparing the two is I have 2K7 and 2K8 on the xbox 360 and my xbox 360 is not working right now but my PS2 is. So I rented the 2K9 one weekend and its not worst the money just for the update roster. I have not play 2K7 or 2K8 for the PS2 but I thing it also basically the same as 2K6.
Summary: When I bought this game I thought it would be better than NBA 2k7 and NBA 2k8. But when I played it was basically the same thing except for updated rosters. When I went to create a player mode it was the same thing. The shoe's are the same and the features are the same. I say NBA live 09 is good for create a player. The create a team is good but it can have some work on it. When I played the game it was the same thing.
Summary: Now I loved the game but only one thing in my opinion is missing. Ok a couple of things. First, what happened to all of the rookies? I see that Sonny Weems isn't on there. I see Derrick Rose is on their but please! I thought there were way more then somewhat 16 rookies in the NBA right now. This really disappointed me. Second, I thought they had a new team in the NBA. Isn't the Oklahoma City Thunder part of the NBA now?
Summary: Even though this game has flaws its still a good game. Bad stuff poor free-throw shooting. Free-Throw shooting is kind of hard to master but few hours should be ok. I picked up the game up a few weeks ago and has been pretty good. Another bad thing is the crossover and shooting button. You can shoot with the right analog stick or O button which makes it kind of funny. Every good game has flaws but it'll be alight.!!!!
