Summary: I hired this out of the video store today, hoping to see a worthy competitor to NBA 2K10 for the old PS2. Sadly, apart from the choice of international teams and the World Championship, I cannot say this game is any good. The graphics are terrible, NBA 2K10 is far brighter and crisp. Also, the game has no fluidity, it's jerky and the controls are clumsy. Although we are now in a PS3/XBOX360/Wii era, there is still no excuse for jerkiness in games in the older PS2.
Summary: I was looking at the ticked of a new nba live 09 to update my 06 live rosters for the ps2. And I almost forgot how bad the 09 live was. Anyhow I didnt plan on playing it anyways. Just wanted to create some players and copy their attributes. The create a player on 06 isn't the most accurate. But if I can get the players height, weight, attributes, and skin color correctly it works for me.
Summary: The Playstation 1 game from a few years ago is better than this mess. Instead of the crosscourt angle to play you get the backcourt; and you can see very little of the court. The graphic are amazingly simple. Stay Away!
Summary: this is the worst NBA LIVE GAME, i play 2006 all the time and it doesn't even comapre. the rosters are exactly the same as 2007, no change in sats, no new pictures, just horrible. seems like they just wasted my money.
Horrible game. Please do not buy NBA Live 09 for the PS2.

Summary: With the near extinction of the PS2 gaming console, there is little wonder as to why EA Sports put a dismal effort into making this game. The graphics for this game are pityful. Seriously, the players apperance and movements reminds me of NBA Live 98 for the PS1. I am not joking around. The controls and features are a joke. EA Sports might else well not even had developed this disgusting game. I am fed up with EA and their half a** productions.
