Conclusion: NBA Live 2005 is without a doubt the perfect addition to EA's NBA series. With online play, the best gameplay, improved season mode and create a superstar makes one great game. Gameplay: There are basically three modes to the gameplay aspect, season mode, exhibition mode and the all new all-star...
Conclusion: NBA 2005 is described by one word:brilliant. The improved gameplay with playmaker control is brilliant. The one thing that stands out for me is the new All-Star Weekend. Bringing back the 3-Point contest was a major upgrade, if it's not broke then don't fix it.
Conclusion: NBA LIVE 2005 may not have the presentation that ESPN 2k5 has, but it makes up for it in other areas. The most attractive aspect of NBA LIVE 2005 is its Dynasty mode, which put's ESPN's franchise mode, "The Association" to shame. I love both games, and i think both are worth the money.
Conclusion: Another typical EA franchise that needs a very significant upgrade. It seems like EA likes to coast on everything but the franchise mode. It is impossible to make a review without crediting the competition (in this case, ESPN NBA 2K5).
Summary: Being a big sports game fan and a major contributor to the EA Sports companies profits for many years i could not wait for november to come around for the new NBA season of basketball and the new "NBA Live" game. However i was most disapointed.
