NBA Live 2001 (PS2)

Digital Sportspage
22 May 2009
  • Excerpt: EA Sports has had a tough row to hoe with the PS2. After getting off to a blazing start with the widely heralded Madden 2001, each subsequent release has failed to measure up in comparison. With the loyal legions of NBA Live 2001 fans out there, EA Sports has a golden opportunity to help establish the PS2 as a viable sports gaming platform. Awhile back, they delivered the finest "Live" to date, with the PSX version of NBA Live 2001. The PS2 should be a cinch, right?

  • Excerpt: EA Sports has made the Playstation 2 what it is today with great improvements over their football, hockey, and racing titles. Finally, after months of waiting, the legacy known as NBA LIVE has made its way to the playstation 2. And while the game is certainly not horrible, it’s definitely not breathtaking as the other EA titles either.
  • Pros: The graphics are a vast improvement over previous Live's., One on One game is awesome!, Its NBA live
  • Cons: Like most Live's, the control becomes haphazard when doing special moves like crossovers or spin moves., Camera Angles=Death, Commentators need the death penalty.

  • Excerpt: Ever since the late golden days of the SNES and Sega Genesis, the NBA Live franchise was the premier basketball series for gamers, and pretty much the only worthy basketball series. As time went by, the franchise little by little grew and formed into gaming's most prestigious b-ball license, EA Sports was clearly on top of the mountain, and the climb to the top all started with NBA Live '98.

  • Excerpt: Det er næsten ligeså sikkert som Amen i kirken, at Electronic Arts hvert år udgiver nye versioner af deres efterhånden utallige sportsspil. Basketball fans skal da heller ikke snydes i år, for med NBA Live 2001 er der er endnu en gang lagt op til tempofyldt basketball af høj klasse. Hvis man virkelig holder af sportsspil, så er tiden lige omkring årsskiftet det bedste. Det er nemlig her alle de nye versioner af de seje sportsspil udkommer.

  • Excerpt: I de sidste fire-fem år har vi basketball fans ventet med længsel på oktober måned, hvor det var næsten 100% sikkert at vi skulle til at afinstallere vores gamle NBA Live, til fordel for den næste udgave i serien. Men 2001 udgaven skulle vi dog af en eller anden grund vente til marts med at få, og jeg ser ikke nogen grund, udover dovenskab fra EA Sports’ side, til at dette spil ikke skulle have haft udgivelsesdato et sted i oktober eller november.

  • Excerpt: Electronic Arts nous propose comme chaque année sa nouvelle mouture du désormais classique NBA Live. Un soft qui se voit bénéficier chaque année de quelques petites modifications avec cette fois-ci cependant assez peu de nouveautés.
