NBA Live 06 Review

VideoGamer.com
15 January 2006
  • Excerpt: EA's NBA Live series has seen more ups and downs in the past decade than the Bush administration has in the past month - and that's saying a lot. Political witticism aside, EA just can't get it right. It's a series with so much potential and plenty of innovations (such as the playmaker passing and pro-hop), but every year since Live 95, it's been a struggle to produce a solid basketball title.

  • Excerpt: The start of the '05-'06 NBA season is drawing near and there are a number of questions on people's minds. Can the Spurs bring home yet another title? Is this the last chance for Shaq and the newly stacked Heat? How will relations pan out in the on-going Kobe/Phil saga? Can I win both the Slam Dunk AND 3-point contests at All-Star Weekend?

  • Excerpt: You can do everything short of mandating a dress code for your players in the game's dynasty mode. If you want to progress through multiple seasons, but still use your playing skills to impact your team, you can intervene during simulated games. This lets you try and hold on to a lead during the 4th quarter or try and bring an underachieving team back from a big deficit.

  • Excerpt: Since Sega Sports' NBA 2K series in the 2000 season, I've always viewed the NBA Live series as an excuse for EA Sports to make basketball games because they've never managed to catch up to Sega's game. Unfortunately, even after a few deep Dynasty Mode changes and some gameplay tweaks, NBA Live 2006 isn't quite the top-notch basketball title that EA's Madden franchise always is with football.

NBA Live 06

  • Conclusion: Other than the superstar functionality, all the usual functionality remains in NBA Live's controls. You've got freestyle dribble moves mapped to the right analog stick, the separate dunk and shoot buttons, the pro hop, and the ability to control tip-ins or to tip dunks off of rebounds. All these features still give you great control over the action, just as they have over the years.
  • Pros: Superstar abilities are fun to watch, Still a fun arcade-style basketball game, Marginal improvements in depth to franchise mode.
  • Cons: Not all superstars are useful, Superstar abilities can be imbalancing, Graphics engine is aging--as players still skate across the floor.

  • Conclusion: NBA Live 06 reste avant tout une amélioration de la saison précédente. Une mise à jour de la base de données, une petite retouche graphique pour vous donner un effet de réalisme et un nouveau Freestyle Superstar qui tente de cacher le glandage des développeurs. Le jeu est réservé aux fans de basket mais risque de déplaire à ceux qui font une allergie des jeux orientés arcade.
  • Pros: Graphismes améliorés, Freestyle Superstar
  • Cons: Trop arcade

NBA Live 06 de Playstation 2

  • Summary: En estos días seguro que muchos soñais con estar en lapie de Pau Gasol y jugar en la NBA, dominando las alturas y encestando con fuerza en una canasta a la que pocos llegan. Pues NBA Live 06 captura toda esa intensidad y emoción del baloncesto de élite y lo pone en forma de videojuego, al alcance de todos los usuarios de PS2.

  • Conclusion: NBA Live 06 est à bout de souffle. La série stagne et ne progresses plus. Soit on est arrivé au maximum des possibilités de la console, soit EA compte sur la renommée de la série. Certes on avance un peu au niveau du réalisme, mais c'est pour perdre au niveau du graphisme pendant les matchs. Si vous ne connaissez pas les NBA Live , alors le jeu vaut réellement coup.
  • Pros: Plus de détails pour les joueurs, la bande son rap
  • Cons: La décomposition des mouvements, les commentaires décalés
