In my opinion overall NBA live 2006 is the best game of the series to date, when you take in to account the extra features and small additions to the gameplay. However, whilst always improving the look, and features of the game, certain aspects which could be drastically improved are being neglected. The individuality of players has almost completely left the game. In NBA Live 06, the only thing which sets apart two 'playmakers' or two 'scorers' are the way they look and what singlet they are wearing. Ballhandlers all make the same moves, dunkers all make the same dunks. In saying that let me stress the dunks and moves are better then ever and look fantastic.

Graphics: As long as you have a decent video card etc the graphics of the game are as good if not better then ever. The stadiums look absolutely fantastic and the crowd, bench and coach detail is remarkable. The creators have still not quite got the players looking as smooth as possible but still a vast improvement on previous years. The close up video shots in timeouts etc look just like the real players.

Sound: At first the sound appeared to be brilliant as far as commentary goes, with different combinations on different games even. However as is always the case there are certain phrases and such which appear to be coming out constantly and every now and then a random comment which seems to have nothing to do with what is happening in the game. Great commentary in a game will be a tough aspect to master, and they haven't done it yet.

Gameplay: The general gameplay is excellent. The freestyle aspects to ball handling is a huge plus in the games favour and gives you a lot more control over what you player does with the ball.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Basketball Game June 20, 2006
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This was the best sports game ever when it was released. The dunks in this game are even better than the previous versions. The dynasty mode is fantastic. The freestyle innovations are outstanding. The dribble styles are neat. The competion modes can vary as much as you want them to. This can be as easy or as hard as you want it to be. You get to choose between five difficulties of playing. You can change the abilities of each player in around twenty areas. There are settings for you to change how hard or easy it is for you and the opponent, seperately, to shoot the ball as well as do just about everything else. You can customize current players or make your own made up player that is good or not so good. Created players can be anywhere from five foot tall and one hundred twenty pounds to seven foot six inches tall and three hundred fifty pounds. You can do almost anything involving NBA basketball in this game.

2.0 out of 5 stars Ummm..... November 23, 2008
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm not sure if I really like this game. Don't get me wrong I love B-Ball and almost every other B-Ball game I've played on consoles b4, but the graphics in this game is one pixel short of wack. The players look like half done polygons and are sooo stiff.

I can hardly make a shot (in easy mode) while the opponent makes EVERY single one. But all in all after getting over the less than acceptable polygon rendering and you (I) really get entrenched in the game you kinda forget that your playing with stiff expressionless half-baked polygons.

I can't make a free do you make a freethrow in this game???

Purchase at your own leisure...I'll still play it (not that I'll really enjoy it) afterall I already bought it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent game October 8, 2005
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've only played NBA live 05 and 06 and compared to 05 this is a better game. The bottom line is that this game is very similar to 05, but with better graphics.

3.0 out of 5 stars Got a basketball Jones December 24, 2006
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I haven't followed the NBA since Jordan retired from the Bulls.... again, and I have mostly just played the NBA Live series on the Super Nintendo, because even tho each year the graphics get better and more is added, I still prefer NBA Live 96 on snes over them all.

I recently purchased Michael Jordan's 20th anniversary DVD and it re sparked a bit of interest in me to play some basketball after that DVD provided me with a demo of NBA LIVE 01. I started to kinda enjoy it, even tho it was only 1 on 1 in the demo and I also got NBA Live 03's demo and thought they weren't bad at all, so i thought id get a full version at long last and the only one available was 06.

Keep in mind I've only played Coach K, 95,96,97,98 on snes and a few on Sega gen. and 99 and 00 on n64 and I used to have 96 on PC years ago... and well, the new versions are a lot more updated, the graphics have improved a hell of a lot, you can actually just about tell who anyone is now on the court without just looking at there number, the dunks have improved a lot, the extra modes have come along way, but I dunno what it is, I still think they haven't captured the fun of the originals, and I still prefer 96 on snes over them all.

But that's not to say I haven't enjoyed 06... I've heard a lot of reviews saying it isn't as good as the past few years versions, but I wouldn't know, I never played them... I'm not sorry i bought this version.

There are so many lousy plays in this game.

Firstly, it is so hard to get a defensive rebound. Offensive rebound will make up 40% of your total rebounds. Read more
