Summary: If you have played the 2003 and 2004 versions of NBA LIVE and played this version, you will find that they are pretty much the same. Especially the 2003, Players all look pretty much the same and there are not any new moves at all. NBA Live 2004 made some improvement but some of the AI is not tolerable. This game has great AI, and great game play with alot of flashy dunks.
Summary: First things first: This game was a blast, with excellent gameplay, options, and overall depth. Here's what I thought of the XBOX version of NBA Live 2002 by EA Sports: 1. Gameplay: Excellent in almost every way. Unlike in the older versions, now when you play a good team like the Lakers, it's a lot more difficult to win then when you play someone like the Bulls. I've played a season so far in franchise mode, and I have to admit, it was very addicting.
Summary: NBA Live 2002 is a great game. with sick dunks that will make your head spin, awsome layups, and good play by play action.i got an idea that might help you on your season. when you start a season, and you get to the season settings put trade resrictions off and you can bring the bulls or whoever you want back from the dead.fun fun fun
Summary: NBA Live 2002 is a pretty good game for XBOX. The graphics are great, the Alley-oop button is cool and gameplay is simple once you get used to it. There are a few problems though: 1. It is difficult to save and load files. 2. Trading and creating players is hard. 3. Shooting a mid-range shot is impossible. The entire point of this game is dunking. Every once and a while you will hit a shot or a 3, but not very often. 4. The computer is not good enough.
Great game, but not much change from past versions.

Summary: The only thing different from past version is this game is more high flying jam it in you face dunks. Great graphics and fun to play. It is very hard to shoot the 3 in the more difficult levels and the game has not adopted the new rules in the NBA. If your a first timer to the NBA live series you will love this game. If you have own previous versions you will not be impressed because most of the game features and play are the same.
Summary: This game looks great and it sound great. The new dunks anre the best I've seen in a game. The new moves and motion that the players use are great and very realistic. The game has a new franchise mode that is very good and very hard to pass through all the years. The only bad thing about this game is that the game is easy even in "superstar". But all in all this game is very good and NBA Inside Drive wil be as good too. Lets see who wins.
Summary: I think nba live 2002 is the best basketball game ever. The game play is very smooth,players look very realistic,and all players have their respected shoes.But this games does have some faults 1)Players get offensive rebounds very easily 2)Automatic keep the score close features - leaving no room to keep a comfortable leave 3)easy to score in the paint- even the sorry players can score double digits if they get the ball in the paint.
Summary: NBA Live 2002 for xbox is pretty good. If u have played nba 2k, 2k1, or 2k2 for dreamcast, it might take u a while to master the controls. The camera angles are in my opinion terrible. i like the 1 on 1 category. you can play against any one player in the NBA. Michael Jordan is even on the Wizards. The game play is much harder than dreamcast, but give it time, and u will get used to it. I think u should go out and buy it. Have fun!
