NBA Live 2005 Review

IGN Entertainment
11 March 2010
  • Conclusion: Some way, some how, the folks over at EA have managed to make the Live franchise interesting for another year. The game isn’t that much different five-on-five style, but the inclusion of online play and cool new game modes puts it over the top. The Dunk Contest in itself is worth the price of admission. I would suggest anybody with even a moderate interest in offline basketball to pick this one up.

  • Conclusion: The most obvious question for most gamers is: "So, should I buy NBA Live or ESPN Basketball this year?" The answer is rather simple, despite both games being roughly equal in overall quality. If you like a fast-paced, above-the-rim, larger than life version of the NBA with enough defense and challenge to still resemble the real sport, then NBA Live is your game.

  • Conclusion: The tempo of the action has been elevated too, but not greatly. And the defensive intensity has been raised to match it. NBA Live 2004 was still plagued by the bane of all hoop games – fast break central – a disproportionate number of points could be racked up running the ball constantly, and annoyingly the CPU could do it as good as humans. Now it’s much more likely that the defense will be back and on guard, as opposed to loping half a court behind the ball.
  • Pros: Great graphics and audio presentation, Dunk mode is spectacular, Gameplay refinements really push emphasis on smooth play
  • Cons: You know it will get even better next year

  • Conclusion: Das Allstar-Weekend bietet Fun für zwischendurch. Ansonsten gibt es aber nur geringe Veränderungen im Vergleich zum Vorgänger.
