Summary: One of the best NBA Live games I ever played. I loved it as a kid. Of course now, going back and playing it, it isn't the same with how good the NBA games are now, but back then it was awesome.
A definite improvement... but still lags behind Sega

Summary: First let me mention I'm not an EA versus Sega guy. I have owned titles from both sides. But EA definitely has the publishing power to sell trash. The fact that it took this long to code real arenas and better AI in it's new hoops and hockey games shows EA's ability to sell poor product with nifty commercials. Sega's competition has made EA up the ante, but as with the NHL series it still falls short. The gameplay, graphics, arenas and commentary are all improved.
Summary: Pros -Pro Hop is an excellent concept and well executed -I like the 10 man mo-cap they implemented, it definetly makes the game feel more "Live" -Nice dunk, shoot, and layup animations -Seperation of Shot and Dunk/layup button is an excellent concept and well executed Cons -Poor graphics compared to NBA 2K series.
Summary: ... zum sehr schlechten NBA Live 2003. Zwar sind die Blocks jetzt realistischer animiert aber man schaft noch immer mit einem Guard über 10 Blocks in einem Spiel. Auch die Grafik der Spieler kann noch verbessert werden, sie sind alle etwas zu rundlich. Mein Tipp: Dieses Jahr nicht wieder zum EA-Titel greifen sondern zu ESPN NBA Basketball (2k4) dem Nachfolger zu Segas NBA 2k3.
