Not Challeneging Enough

Christopher Coles, Amazon
17 August 2002
  • Summary: Look, I could write a nice, long review on what I don't like about this game, but I just think I'll get right to the point. The game is too simple. First time I played the game, I set it to the highest level, just to see what it was like...and guess what? I beat it. And for those of you out there, thinking I'm some great, hardcore gamer, I'll have to tell you I'm not. I play my Playstation 2 only around an hour a weak and I'm not that great.

Great potential but a little dull

  • Summary: Easy playability and decent graphics make this game excellent fun for the first couple of minutes. The players` likenesses are amazing and their body movements are highly realistic. Unfortunately it`s way too slow and bears little resemblance to an actual game of basketball. The centers dominate the play too much. Players like Shaq pick up the MVP award every game because they are totally dominant offensively and defensively.

  • Summary: okay, well...i'll just be straight with you...this game is bad. i myself really like the gameplay to be the best part of the game...NBA Live 2002 really throws up a brick there. NBA 2K2 is much better for basketball sim fans. Rebounding is terrible...expect you and the computer to get way more offensive rebounds than in a real game. also, the animations leave something to be desired...the spin move is poorly animated and some crossovers are just not realistic.

BOOOOORING

  • Summary: For a while I thought it was just me but after reading other reviews on here this game is pretty bad. Its very slow which is very annoying. Even when I use the turbo button the players still run slow. your opponent is going to get at least 3-4 shot attempts each time down the court. After playing it 10-15 times it also got very boring to play. Now it sits collecting dust, I guess I will dust it off and trade it in for NBA 2k2.

So sad. this game eats.

M. Illarmo, Amazon

  • Summary: i am a huge fan of the EA NBA Live series. I was so excited to get this game, and i am so bitter now that i plunked down 50 bucks on it. 1) The game play is SLOW. painfully slow. I know they go for realism but this is ridiculous. 2) The game is no fun. Perhaps i missed it but they took all the superfun options out of this game. You can't make custom teams. My friends and I used to make fantasy teams of our favorite NBA players or of us and play them in exhibition mode.

Buy NBA 2K2

K. Onozawa, Amazon

  • Summary: I've played NBA Live ever since the beginning in 1995. EA Sports has done an excellent job with the franchise, but I must say that I'm very disappointed with this game. This game is garbage compared to what I was used to. There's no such thing as a fast break because whenever you run down court with a player, like Allen Iverson, any CPU player can catch up to you and prevent the fast break, even if they're supposed to be much slower, someone like Ben Wallace.

  • Summary: Sorry to say but EA really blew out a bad one to hit the xmas deadline. I was one of the unfortunate few who bought this POS and have to stick with it because I do not currently live in the states and so can not get rid of it. All the other reviews are head on with this game. The rebounding problem is horrendous although I believe there is a worse flaw.
