4.0 out of 5 stars Good effort, Live truly is in the palm of your hand... October 14, 2005
Platform for Display:Sony PSP
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
If you want a good basketball game for your portable, NBA Live certainly is a good bet for you. E.A. pulled it off very nicely. I didn't think Live could be compacted to a "portable level" but this is a very good start for the portable franchise. It's very similar to it's console cousin, all the "SuperStar" moves are intact. Between the leg passes, pass fakes, multiple dunks, power blocks, power moves ETC. With the absence of L2 and R2 buttons and no R stick however, they did have to make some sacrficies. The backdown button is uncomfortably used by holding down "triangle", and you no longer have freestyle moves. Instead, you have your crossover dribble and spin peformed with tapping Triangle and Square. I sometimes do a backdown with triangle when I wanted to a spin, this is annoying.

This is actually the old control scheme on the PS2 before they introduced freestyle moves and veteran Live players will be confused when they go back to playing the console version again. It's old school for sure ,but with the lack of buttons and the R stick, they had to go back to this scheme. Keeping this in mind, getting the open shot isn't quite as easy, as the freestyle moves certainly gave the offense the advantage.

The graphics are a cross between a Playstation 2 game and a very highly effective Playstation 1 game. The player models are not amazing, but they look good enough so you can recognize your big name guys down the court. They left out the sideline action, no coaches, no cheerleaders, no sub players, just the court and the fans in the stands. This is certainly due to the limitations of the PSP, but the ingame action is Live all the way. Player movements are very fluent, it seems very smooth and convincing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Game!!! A must buy for basketball fans!!! April 23, 2006
A Kid's Review
Platform for Display:Sony PSP
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Nba live 06 is an amazing game for the psp. It really shows the beauty of the console. It has everything from season games to slam dunk contests. The graphics are one of the best. Its really hard to let go of especially if your playing season mode.

But it could be better....

First of all the controls were kinda hard to master (Being that this is my first game for the PSP). But you get used to it after a while and it gets better.

Also, the loading times are insane. If you are playing online, the game freezes about every minute for like 7 seconds. If you turn off the PSP while the game is running and turn it back on later, you gotta wait like 15 seconds for it to start again(might as well go back to home and reload game again).

The multiplayer is ok, only there arent so many people on because PSPs are really expensive, but if people are on its ok.

The slam dunk contest and 3 point shootout are really hard to get used to. But its alot of fun when you get the hang of it.

It would also be better if the game had some kind of practice mode so you can get better at it without time or other things in your way.

Overall, this game is amazing and its a must buy,whether you like basketball or not.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Beautiful, but what you want November 2, 2005
Platform for Display:Sony PSP
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
By the far the best of the basketball games on the PSP. At least in this game you make some shots and can drive the lane without picking up your dribble (NBA 06 messed both of these up). Decent animations, average to below average graphics. Fast and fun gameplay. Bad: at least a 1-2 second pause everytime a shot is made. Not as much control as in the console version. The Good: More control than NBA street. More fun than NBA 06' (too accurate of shot percentage can be a bad thing). My advice: If you need a b-ball game now. Get this one and only this one. If not, wait a couple of months and pick it up for cheap on ebay or your local used game carrier.

4.0 out of 5 stars My best PSP game July 1, 2006
By Alex
Platform for Display:Sony PSP
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
this game has nice graphics, and good gameplay. The only problem is the lack of game modes. NBA Live 06 has Superstar challenge, where you complete goals in certain situations with different superstar players, a single season (but not a franchise), ALL star weekend, which is brilliant and just as good as on the home consoles, online play (free if you choose to be sponsored by espn), and finally, of course, quick play. ((ALso you can manage your rosters)) OF course this is a handheld game, so you need to give ea sports some slack, especially since it is there first crack at a psp basketball game. It is the best nba game for psp and i would for the most part recommend buying it.
