Summary: I have been a fan of live for a very long time beginning with live 2000. NBA Live 06 on current-gen consoles was a step down from 05, but wasn't bad, at least you could enjoy yourself. But this game takes home the prize for Worst NBA Live Game ever. To begin with, the graphics are amazing, the animations are so realistic my uncle thought I was watching TV while playing, its just that beautiful.
Summary: Where to start? the graphics are mostly outstanding. But once you get past that (and it won't take long) you'll realize that this is a below average title that spent more time working on the graphics than the game play. There are very few game choices, limited options, the camera angles are horrific and there are almost no extras, which is surprising because of the extra power the 360 brings, one would think that EA would have come out strong and WOWED us.
Summary: Live takes a below and beyond fall in it's competition with the 2K series Pros: -Sweet graphics(On close ups, you can see the fantastic modeling on your favorite NBA players, and sweat) -Marv Albert and Steve Keer comentating -Updated rosters -Still got create a player mode Cons: -The camera angles are so poor it makes a bum seem as rich as the creator of this console.(Seriously, I can't see layups or dunks for the life of me cuz of the crappy camera angles.
Summary: Its sad I have to get out my old XBOX and play my old NBA LIVE 2006 to enjoy a quality game. Other than the graphics this game is terrible. The camera angles are ridiculous. I tried every camera angle in the game and the game play was still hard to follow. There were times I slammed the ball and the camera wasnt even showing the basket. I just heard the dunk in the back ground and I'd be seeing some akward did not make sense camera picture.
NBA LIVE 06 (LIKE EVERY OHTER XBOX 360 EA SPORTS GAME STINKS)

Summary: This is the worst NBA Live out on any large gaming platform (PS2, XBOX, GAmecube, heck even PSP). The graphics with this game are not that much better than on regular XBOX, so if you are buying a 360 for this game please stop it. There are not many features on this game. No dunk contest, not all star weekend, nothing, nada. This game basically sucks.
Summary: I bought this game, and it was a complete piece of garbage. It is about as fun to play as russian roulette. Please read the reviews for this game before you try to buy it. The PS2 and regular Xbox version are twice as good. This game was the biggest piece of junk i have ever played. If its graphics werent so good, this game could be mistaken for a sega genesis game. The graphics cant make up for the gameplay though.
Summary: When I heard that NBA Live was going to be included in my Xbox360 package, I was really psyched. It was one of the first games I went to play when I got home. When I started the game however, I was disturbed by what I saw.... TWO GAMEPLAY OPTIONS?!?! You either play an exhibition game, or a season. That was it?! I thought maybe I was jumping to conclusions, and that the gameplay would be out of this world.
Conclusion: Sorry Dale but I cannot fathom your score for NBA Live '06. To rate it as a game as a whole I do not see how you can give it a positive score or rating. You even mention all the missing features! I've played both NBA 2k6 and NBA Live 06 enough to provide a good comparison. Here's the real review. The game has cool sweat. Player models look good for the most part except for the super skinny guys. Some player head sizes look off, as seems to be typical of EA sports games.
