Didn't like it at first

Tony B., Amazon
16 November 2004
  • 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.

Four stars only because there's nothing better...

  • 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.

Nice Improvement over 2002

Don from SF "coach41", Amazon

  • 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.

The best basketball game in years!!!

Evan C Pease, Amazon
16 December 2003
  • Summary: First of all, I am a HUGE basketball fan but I'm an even BIGGER fan of basketball video games. I've played dozens of b-ball titles, many of which most people have never heard of (ever hear of Fast Break by a company named Accolade or GBA Sports' 2-on-2 Basketball? I didn't think so). Anyway, the point is, in over 20 years of playing hoops games (hopefully, I'm not showing my age) I rank NBA Live 2004 as one of my top 5 EVER!

Best Live game ever, but could be better!!!

Revelation, Amazon

  • Summary: If you like real basketball instead of arcade basketball, you should get this game. I love this gameplay, but it could be better. The new hop step button is great, but if you step up to take a charge, the defender slides backwards. It also takes to long for the shoter to recover after a missed layup. And they have to many missed layups in the game.

Play it for a while and you will learn to apreciate it a lot

Michael Jenkins "jenkx00", Amazon

  • Summary: I hope that EA reads these reviews and hears from those who actually play the games. This is one of the better basketball games I have played. When I first turned it on and started to play I was a little disappointed because the player models had changed. I like the player models from last year's game better. These models are not bad but they are small. I liked the right joystick action better in last year's game.

FINALLY, A GOOD NBA LIVE GAME...

D.L. "generasian", Amazon
20 October 2003
  • Summary: Against my better judgment, I went out and purchased NBA Live 2004 after swearing off the franchise after last year's debacle. Though I loved the hyped Freestyle Control, I found 2003 to be incredibly frustrating for it's emphasis on arcade-like game play that allowed the opponent to score at will. But like a battered wife, I eventually found myself coming back, hoping that things would change for the better.

Pur plaisir

  • Summary: Janvier 2003, je regarde les matchs de NBA tous les jours et je sens que quelque chose me manque de plus en plus dans ma vie. Les autres jeux de PS2 ne parviennent plus à limiter l'ennui. Les symptômes sont là, il faut investir dans un jeu de basket. Je discute autour de moi, j'arrive à la FNAC, ultime alternative NBA live 2004 V.S NBA 2k3.
  • Pros: réalisme, jouabilité, finitions, plaisir
  • Cons: la durée de vie d'un jeu de basket
