NBA Live 06 Review

IGN Entertainment
11 March 2010
  • Conclusion: Electronic Arts pretty much nailed the majority of NBA Live 06 in this inaugural Xbox 360 effort, and other things were either rushed or just plain ignored. With smoother animation transitions, a better framerate, and a tad more pace, NBA Live 06 will look silly-good, as the rendering and motion capture is already there.

  • Excerpt: NBA Live 06, an introduction. Whilst the NBA Live series has never been as popular as some of the other EA Sports range it's certainly popular in its own right and a firm favourite with NBA fans. It's a welcome sight then to see the series appear for the launch of the Xbox 360 and visually speaking it's a game that certainly doesn't disappoint.

NBA Live 06

Xbox Evolved
4 August 2006
  • Summary: So all in all, just stay away from the game. Download the demo for the visuals, and get NBA2K6 for your basketball needs. I don’t know what is wrong with Electronic Arts, but they will probably somehow get away with taking the modes out since tons of people like NBA Live anyways. Don’t be one of those suckers though, and stick to some of the better 360 launch titles instead.
  • Pros: The best looking sports game yet, by far.
  • Cons: A lot of modes taken out, just basically a tech demo.

  • Conclusion: All you need to do is up his abililtys to 99 and put him to play for the Spurs or Miami Heat. save and you have the achievement. Make sure you sim your season with the team that you put your created player in. I also had to sim the season 3 times but this could be just because i stayed the Chicago Bulls. Start hitting those 3 throws from downtown!

Video Game talk
17 February 2006
  • Excerpt: Style over substance seems to be a recurring theme in EA Sport's sub par smattering of sports titles for the Xbox 360 with NBA Live 2006 being the worst offender. While designing a captivating presentation and an attractive graphics engine is important, leaving out key gameplay features, working camera angles and worthwhile achievements is simply inexcusable.

  • Summary: With slam dunks a-plenty and a fair few fouls NBA Live 06 falls short of the basket in delivering the next generation basketball experience. Wolf finds out why.

  • Excerpt: EA Sports' NBA Live 06 was unimpressive and felt dated on the current generation consoles. They decided to go for another shot with Live 06 on the Xbox 360, and I'm disappointed when I say that there's still a lot to desire with this version of the game.

  • Summary: It won't be long before EA start releasing a Water Polo series, until then we will have to stick to titles such as Tiger Woods, Madden and NBA, unfortunately NBA games are fairly Hit or Miss, leave it to us to let you know about the latest addition to the EA family on the all new Xbox 360.
