It IS, period IS better then NBA Live 2004
24/7 Pisses Me Off
It can take a while to get used to it
Welll, i only just recently bought this game, as i also have NBA Live 2004.
I deceided to get it because alot of people prefer this to NBA Live 2004. I prefer it as it has a better match engine, better grpahics, this Franchiose mode Is deep and it is generally a better game.
Then we get onto the 24/7 mode. This is a great addition to an already amazing game, except, you are really really crap at the start. i am still trying to get past the 1st few stages, it maybe because i am still a bit egdy with this game, as i am still used to NBA Live 2004, but i think that 24/7 mode could be a bit bette...
The game itself is a blast to play. The 24/7 mode really does add another game inside a game. The game looks really good, it plays well. I haven't played NBA Live yet but Im sure this is better.The bad:
Now the bad...I HATE the freethrow meter thing, it's horrible...you have to hit it perfect..PERFECT or you will miss...sometimes even when you get it perfect you miss. Also I hate how they took away the zooms on the cameras. Personally I am a side basketball player..but no matter what camera angle you play. It's just too far away from the basket. Also with the Franchise mode, can you extend contracts on your players??? I couldn't find it anywhere...the whole Front Office in the Franchise mode is confusing...and I have played many many games with Franchises and have not had a problem. One last thing, the game feels too slow...The last NBA @K series I had was 2K3 for the Dreamcast, and it was faster than this game.Summary:
Overall the bads can be looked past. Because this is really a fun game and there's all kinds of little things that keep you sucked in. It's defintely worth the 50 bucks if you are into real NBA simulation basketball...if you are more in to arcadey basketball go get NBA Street Vol. 2 at Gamestop.
The good is everything that you could possibly want from an NBA game.EverythingThe bad:
The only bad is.............................Summary:
This game is a blast. You really have to work for your shots and nothing is automatic cept for an open shot. I love the isomotion for it might not work that good on the computer, but i sure break plenty of my friends ankles when they try to stop me manually. Let the cpu do that cause a human is no match. I graphics are awesome and the gameplay is enough to keep you up all night like "one more"!!I ' ve been waiting for this game to come out and now that it has i am happy to say that is was worth the wait.
24/7 Mode gives you another game inside the best simulation basketball created.
Iso motion, gives you the feeling of real control on offense and defence.
You cannot use your 24/7 created character in your franchise or season modes!! But this is promised for next year.
You cannot manually adjust your camera angles like NBA2K3- why did they take that away?
This is REAL basketball people, every play is not a tomahawk dunk from the baseline. If your looking for the fake he's on fire, or the crossover+crossover+dunk technique, go and get Nba Jam or ( Nba Unreal I mean Nba Live )True Sega fans get that joke. Speaking of graphics, this year you will see the sweat on the jerseys, as well as a smarter "sweat" on players, the shorts move in the wind and you move around the court. Every face of EVERY player has been redone, to give you ultimate graphics for everyone. So forget having the names of player under them, because you can look and see who ev...
The graphics in this game are among the best I have ever seen. The 24/7 mode in this game is the greatest thing since pornos.The bad:
Gameplay is still a little to slow, but everything else in the game is designed to perfection.Summary:
If you are a basketball junkie this is the game to get not NBA Live 2004. In this game there is also a 24/7 mode where you can compete in drills with other people, raise your persons stats, and even win things like jerseys etc... The great thing however about this game is that you will have the opportunity to take a team like the Cavs and through many years of hard work make them a Championship contender. I have yet to actually play the game itself but I know that it is worth every penny of its 50 dollar cost which is why I recommend everyone to buy this game
