Summary: This game sucks. The only ways to score ar dunks and 3 pointers. Its like going waaayy back to "double dribble" (1st nentendo b-ball game) or something. If you look at the player ratings, everyone is sorry. Including the all-stars. Baron Davis is more dangerous than Shaq, for example. The gameplay is slow and stiff. And you can't spin or cross-over easily. The only thing easy about this game is throwing bad passes, because they complicated that too.
If you have NBA Live 2003 keep it and update the rosters

Summary: I rented this game this year instead of buying it because of the garbage that EA had last year. I also played the Espn game and it was horrible too. I can't believe that the people that own the best sports game out there (Madden) cannot create another franchise mode similar to the one that is so successful. If they cut and paste Madden's franchise mode to NBA live it would be one of the best games ever.
Summary: I rented both of the different basketball games within a week of each other. The ESPN (2k) was by far a better all around game. Live lacks any sort of defensive presence. Scoring is way to easy. They attempted to create a 1 on 1 mode, but espn's is a street mode which you can do anything from 1on1 to 5on5. They finally included a dynasty mode, but no owner mode like in madden. I did not even try to clear room on my memory card to have a team when I bought the game.
Summary: I now understand better after reading another review why Live is so behind Madden...There are some positives, but the negatives are too great to give this anything higher than 3 stars. Every year I get cranked up for Live coming out, since I like basketball more than football, but I always end up playing Live for about a week, realize it sucks, then go back to Madden.
Summary: You people have to dumb to think this game is good. It is unrealistic, and that feeestyle controller makes crossovers that you would never see in a NBA game. You can go to the whole with no trouble and score with a little push on the analog stick. NBA 2K3 was clearly a better game than NBA Live 2003. NBA 2K3 is a realistic game with better gameplay and calls. You can control everything. Trust me ESPN NBA Basketball a.k.a.
Summary: nba live 2004 se révèle un jeu encore une fois tourné vers l'arcade plutot que la simulation, un peu trop surement. les caméras ne permettent pas une bonne maniabilité des joueurs, qui généralement se montent dessus sur l'écran. il arrive de ne pas voir ou se situe le joueur qui possède le ballon. cette erreur grossière dévalorise totalement le jeux qui pourrait etre l'un des meilleurs de la catégorie.
