Summary: I just dont like the camera angles in the game. The regular xbox version was much better. But the begining of the game before the menu is cool because you can mess around with your favorite nba player. but if i could go back i would definately not buy it.
Summary: When EA's biggest gimmick is a 30 second commercial of shaq sweating, you know you have problems. Without dynasty mode and various other features, Live stands incomplete leaving the user looking for their receipt. It's obvious that Live's transformation into the next-generation was rushed in hopes of getting the game out in time for the xbox 360 release.
Summary: A 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. When you read this, you're reading it correctly: there are two gameplay modes in NBA Live 06. Two. There's Play Now, where you play an exhibition-style game with an NBA team against any other NBA team.
Summary: Well, I was looking for the best NBA game to play on my new Xbox 360 and I must say this one doesn't cut it. It's gameplay is sluggish and there is too much missing.. 1.No Franchise mode??? How can you not have a franchise mode in today's basketball games? It's a strong building block for any basketball or football game now really. 2.No Dunk, 3pt, or any kind of special mode?? This isn't 1993 guys. This is 2006!
Summary: It's hard to give an honest review of NBA Live 06 (XB360) without including the expletives that capture the true essence of the game, but I am determined to make sure everyone knows the true disappointment that NBA Live turned out to be. GRAPHICS: 2/5 - After all the articles I have read gushimg about this game being the one that really looks "next-gen" (see EGM, and just about every other online magazine), I have to say this: the graphics probably would look pretty good...
Summary: I can say, EA fails yet again, in making sports games. MAdden are all exactly the same. But i got to hand it to ya. Taking most of the game modes away does change the game much more then your over all year to year basis. 2k6 has been the best basketball developers since the dreamcast sports games. 2k6 shines 100% over this game. This game has great graphics dont get me wrong. But graphics dont make a game. A game is based on gameplay.
Summary: I have been a nba live fan forever and this 2006 copy may have ruined it for me. the screen shots are HORRIBLE, no francise mode, you can be 3 feet tall and block a players shot whos 7 feet tall....I would give this game away to anyone who wants it.
Summary: This game has great graphics, but the game play is not even close to that of 2K6. Also, the camera perspectives are pretty bad. It is easy to make mistakes because you simply can't see what's going on. Also, they are out of there minds in the player ratings. I have no idea how they rated the players, but it is surely idiotic. I think EA rushed this game out for the XBOX 360 release.
Summary: The game looks REALLY bad, but it has some redeeming factors, BUT overall, it's just a BAD GAME! NBA 2K6 blows it out the water! I will say this though, each transition EA Sports has from one generation of system to the next is usually not up to par so I FULLY expect NBA Live 07 to come out on FIRE!
