Excerpt: Following two incarnations on the PlayStation 2 console, Electronic Arts' NBA Live series makes its inevitable trip to the Microsoft Xbox. Those looking for significant enhancements to the Xbox version will be left disappointed, as, outside of a few visual and control tweaks, the game is essentially the same as the PS2 game. It shares all the issues that accompanied the PS2 version and even manages to add some minor problems of its own.
Excerpt: If you've ever been to an actual NBA Game, you'll find that NBA Live 2002 will mimic the real thing close to perfection. This starts with the look of the game, where realistic player models and amazing animations rule the court. New to the game this year are the cutaway shots of the bench and players chatting with each other or with the referees. Meanwhile, every arena you step into looks and feels like the real-life counterpart.
Conclusion: While navigating through the lovely menus you find that NL2K2 has many nice features, with the common season mode, franchise, one on one and exhibition modes. Perusing the options in the season mode discovers that wisely, when conducting trades you are now able to offer up more than one player for another, allowing you to dump your bench to acquire up and comer Tracy McGrady, or who ever else you might want.
Excerpt: After being mildly content with last year's NBA Live 2001 for PS2, I was almost sure that EA Sports would blow me away with the second Live title on the PS2. I was expecting improved visuals, an all-new audio aspect, and something new and refreshing in terms of gameplay. But who was I kidding, right? The Live series hasn't seen an improvement since its '99 rendition, across whatever platform.
Conclusion: Que vous soyez accroc ou pas, il faudra vous habituer à la frénésie d'Electronics Arts avec leurs réactualisations incessantes voire insolentes. Le seul problème à cette équation des plus simplistes ou encore le grain de sable de cette année 2002 sera sans nul doute l'arrivée de Sega, sur le marché de la PS2, avec le très attendu NBA 2k2.
