Summary: this game to me is like live from last year... it sucks.... i played this using cfw but played only 1 quarter before i quit playing. i dont know why the other guy gave a 5 star review, because this game is horrific.. its exactly like live from last year, which i regrettable bought and played for about 10 games before i bought nba 07 from sony. that game played much better than live and i assume the same can be said about this years version.
Conclusion: Having bought NBA 07 for psp last year i was expecting a bit of an improvement in the quality of this game. Firstly the graphics aren't much better than 07 - you can barely identify who is with the ball. Secondly the difficulty levels are ridiculous - when i have it on starter i absolutely crucify the other team even if i'm playing against Phoenix or Dallas for example. So i tried the next difficulty level up and I GOT HAMMERED.
