Summary: I actually hated this game when I first bought it due to the revised game play. I absolutely HATED...I repeat HATED the hop step, and having a seperate shot and dunk/layup button. Months later near the release of Live 05, I started playing Live 04 and became accustomed to the style of play. Now I couldn't imagine it any other way. The game is dope, and the audio appeal aint bad either. Really looking forward to playing Live 05 and mastering it.
If games were given MVPs, this game would get it!:)

Summary: No rule about it. This game is fantastic. Now with the pro-hop button, driving to the hoop is simple. and the blocks are superb. The new and imroved dynasty mode is awesome. Even though the players dont look so realistic, it still deserves a 5-star. I hope Nba Live 2005 is just as good. I can't wait to find out.
Summary: I purchased NBA live 2004 a year ago and I still find myself playing with friends for 4 hours every weekend. My intrests in basketball allow me to utize the special features in the game. This game is well made and I would not be surprised to find myself playing this game into my 4O's. The rosters are updated the 2004 NBA season. The new dynasty mode allows you to be a virtual GM and any player on the court.
Summary: this is sick!it is the ultmate basketball game where you can drive baseline and do a 360 jam,or make a midair choice. it also has all of the nba 2003-2004 rookies and veterans. with a great and new and unique dynasty mode,it has the REAL season game schedule for your favorite team.you can also create a player and unlock players.HINT GO TO CREATE PLAYER AND ENTER "SOSODEF" FOR JERMAINE DUPRI (who has a song on the game).
Summary: I love this game. I play it any chance I get. I loved last year's version,so I thought NBA Live 2004 would be good. And I was right. At first I didn't like it, but now it's the bomb. The player models look just like the real players. Dynasty mode is the best. I love it when you trade players and you get someone, the team players actually welcome the person or persons to the team. The EA Sports Bio is also a good feature for the game.
Summary: This game would have been so much better if EA had only fixed all the ridiculous problems of 2003 and left it at that, because that was still the most fun basketball game I've ever played. Instead, they revamped the franchise. The player models all look short, fat, and big-headed. What was going on inside EA when they did those graphics? The pro-hop is great, but now that's pretty much the only way to get an open shot.
Summary: Hi, I've played basketball over the years but the only NBA Live games I've played was NBA Live '95 on the PC and NBA Live 98 in the Nintendo 64 (my friends and I wore that one out). I got NBA Live 2002 for the PS2 for a brief time as well and played it but shelved it in favor of NBA 2k2. So, it was a pleasant surprise when my friend got me NBA Live 2004. It took me a while to adjust to the game but NBA Live 2004 is quite nice.
