Summary: i hope the the football department at easports makes 3 times as much money as the basketball department. this game is horrible. i don't think i've ever seen so many glitches, especially at key moments in the game. the worst was when they were down by 4 and made one of my other guys foul the shooter who still managed to make the shot, which counted. then instead of shooting free throws, they get the ball back and score again to send it into OT.
Summary: Well I would like to start off by saying that every time I play this game I find a new flaw. The first one I noticed was when I had a clear path to the bucket, got fouled from behind, but my player stopped in mid air thus defying the laws of physics. Then I noticed that in the first year of dynasty mode, Kobe Bryant and Tracy McGrady both scored over 25 points a game, in the second year they averaged 18.3 and 19.7 respectivly.
Summary: this game sucks!!!!!!!! u can not score at all!!!! if u try to go inside alls u get is a charge or a miss besides the new dunk button sucks u can never dunk it even if your 2 inchins away from the basket!!!!! wat im trying to say is GET ESPN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Summary: i haven't played this game but i know from experience (i have 2003) that this probably sucks. let me take a guess and say that yao ming and lebron james aren't even in the game. as far as the dynasty mode goes, you realize that the averages per 48 minutes are completly out of whack, such as when i played tyson chandler for 40 minutes a game and he still had only 6.0 rebounds a game when simulating(the same average for when he played 19 minutes a game).
Summary: This game is very unrealistic, and just plain bad. I would take a wide open 3 with Tracy McGrady, and miss1 like every time. I also don't think that shoot, and dunk/lay up need to bee two different button's, it's very stupid. The free style control was good last year but here it stinks! you don't know what move you gonna do because you can't do a crossover or spin with square,X,triangle,or circle so it is hard to fake out defender's.
Summary: I used to play NBA Live 2001 on my computer. Had no real complaints. Bought PS2 sysyem recently to play Madden 2004. Looked forward to the new release of NBA Live 2004. Bought it the first week it was out. What a DISAPPOINTMENT. The game has great graphics and many neat features, but the gameplay itself if HORRIBLE. I should have known better; I read a review here that talked about how the man with the ball bogs down every time he gets past half court.
Summary: First off, I love EA, all their games and LIVE up until now. In fact, I thought that Live 2003 was so good, it renewed my love of basketball and got me back into a sport I missed for so long. And with everyone talking about the improvements over 2003, I knew I had to get 2004. Now before I verbally tear this game to shreds, let me start off with some of the highlights of it. Ummm... well I guess the Dynasty mode is a little better.
Summary: This game is about the same thing as last year. Nba 2004 is nothing but a waste of money the gameplay is wack the freestyle dribble is the same as 2003 series. If you really what a basketball game get ESPN nba ect.
Summary: This game has a lot of problems. The collision detection is the most frustrating thing. The ball WENT THROUGH my players time and time again. I can't pick up a rebound unless I'm directly on top of the ball (the players refuse to put their hands out and grab it even if it's an inch away). The players turn their backs to the hoop frequently (and what looks like randomly), which makes it really hard to do ANYTHING (offensively). Cut sequences suck.
