THE GOOD: I found this game to be very good. One of my favourite basketball games to this day and it is worth the money if your into basketball and high flying dunks. What I found about this game that was so entertaining was that the dunking was really good. All sorts of dunks and dribbling moves which made this game really stand out as a basketball game.
THE BAD: Too easy. The game was way too easy and the computer was no competition. Even at all-star difficulty, I found the computer to be way too easy. Something that made the game a bit boring after a while. Something EA needs to improve upon.
Another thing I found negative about this game, was that dynasty seemed a bit boring. Not much happened in it as in trading and etc. I thought dynasty is what made this game give me a 3 out of 5 for it. Another thing they need to heavily improve upon.
SUMMARY: Just go out and buy the game. It's worth the money and I am sure you'll love playing it with all the new features and dunks.
THE GOOD: The game moves at a very fast pace,freestyle controls,the retro jerseys are very nice, players looks are matched to a tee, and the sountrack is real coo
THE BAD: Shot blocking is terribly unrealistic, denfense is basically unheard of
SUMMARY: NBA Live is probably the most fun you can have with a basketball game. With the monster dunks, killa cross-overs, and fast gameplay, it will be sure to keep gamers playing. The down side however is the game's realism. Blocking has became a volley ball match, and there is really no strategy to the game, unless you count tryin 2 score more than your opponent (which i guess is the ultimate strategy, huh?) So if you are a fan if scorin 150+ points in 48 minutes, this is the game 4 u
THE GOOD: This is one of the best basketball games made from EA. Every year EA gets better and better at making NBA live games.
THE BAD: I thought the game was well made. On the next NBA Live 04 I wish I could see them practice a little or let the user practice with the players for a little before a game starts.
SUMMARY: This game has some good graphics. The graphics are better than any other basketball game made now. NBA 2K3 wasn't all good I gave it away cuz i thought NBA 2K2 was better. NBA Shootout is not better than Live 2003. If I would put Live 2003 against Shootout 03 and NBA 2K3 against it NBA Live 03 would dominate both games.
THE GOOD: Freestyle, bit tricky at first, but after a while, second nature, Graphics, Dunks, 2 player
THE BAD: Franchise is a bit iffy, and defence can be quite hard, yet offence easy
SUMMARY: Just needs a few little tweaks for 04, but, knowing what EA did with FIFA 2003 to make it truly better than all their previous efforts, I know they will be able to keep on improving and improving, still worth a buy!
THE GOOD: This is the best basketball game ever!!!The freestyle control is absolutely amazing,well worked!! i think the graphics are amazing!!!!The whole gameplay is truly a work of art!!!Good work EA Alot of people are going to dis-agree with me because i am giving this game a 4.4, but it's my own oppinion!!
THE BAD: Defence is a bit boring!!! And its quite hard to defend when your a lower team like the bulls or the wizards(MY TEAM)
SUMMARY: Alot of work has been put into creating this work of art.Alot ofpeoplearegoing to say it is a hard game, but its not after you play it for a bit. If your into basketball, get this game A.S.A.P you won't regret it!!
THE GOOD: This game in truth is rich in fun. Especially 2player mode. The best graphics for a b-ball title yet.
THE BAD: Of course the realism could have been better. But all in all a fun experience.
SUMMARY: Nba live is not to be confused with deep play of Nb2k3. Live's more fun to play. It's exciting, fresh, fast, and with a few tweeks of the camera it's almost perfect. Yes there is issue's like collision on picks, lame season mode and not enough stats collection (like 2k3). But you will enjoy it more than any other b-ball title out there. In one word to describe it...LIVE! That's what EA was pushing for this year. Hopefully next year they will focus more on the realism of the sport. The 2k3 series is plain boring. If you have 2k2 you are straight, on the other end LIVE is getting better each year.....Thanks EA, your on the right path.
