Summary: I used to be a huge fan of NBA Live series, especially NBA Live 06. From 07, EA Sports seems to take experiments. 07 seems very slippery and full of flaws, but at least there is one feature I like a separate button for dunk. In 08, most good features are overthrown. You can tell that EA Sports is making the game more detailed. But I think they fail. Ok, NBA Live is dead since NBA Live 10.
Summary: NBA Live is a great game for basketball lovers, but not PS2 sports fanatics. It lacks the play-as-a-superstar in first person aspect of Madden and MLB the show, but still provides a good dynasty mode. I am dissapointed though, even now they still don't have the supertstar. The game would fly off the shelves.
Summary: the control itself sucks - passing is akward, shots look weird, players don't move like they do in real life when setting up a play...graphics are disappointing as well...i liked nba live 05 better than this game..
Summary: The game play felt forced for lack of a better word the movements didn't feel smooth and in certain situations they were even a bit jerky, instead of the usual slow forced action. but once you get used to it (and change the default gameplay settings) it is a very nice game.
