2.0 out of 5 stars *sigh* Another Disappointment October 22, 2007
Platform for Display:PlayStation2
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
NBA Live has always come in second place to NBA 2K games, atleast to me. Live has always had excellent ideas, but the game has always suffered from sloppy gameplay with little details to the small things that make up a basketball game. Once again, some great ideas carried through with bad gameplay.

There is one aspect I need to discuss first. Passing is TERRIBLE. I know they want to make passing more realistic, but I had Garnett posting up on a defender, right in front of the active players face, and I pressed to pass, and Rondo BOUNCED the ball on the ground hard and it made Garnett jump for it. I mean, honestly, is there a point in that? And sometimes, when I turn on the passing icons, I'll press square or whatever other button I want to pass it to, and my player won't even pass. Sometimes, my player will just throw the ball away when I pass. It's very nervewracking.

Also, foul calling is about stupid. If you run over a defender when you're on offense, it's an automatic offensive charge. Now if the situation is switched, and you're defending, don't hold your breathe on getting a charge. Even when you press the button for a charge, and your player goes in motion, you'll get ran over, but no foul will be called. Half the time, when I get called for a reach in, I didn't even see my player's hand move towards the ball. Half the time, I don't even go for a steal.

Through games, I can't shake the feeling that I'm playing in an arcade. It just feels so fake. The graphics are fine, when I'm the Celtics, I can tell who's Ray Allen, who's Pierce, and who's Garnett, but the feeling of simulation is too strong. When you go for a rebound, the player may not even be that close to the ball, but somehow it lands in his hands. Laying-up is a bit more animated but also looks fake.

1.0 out of 5 stars Arcade Style Gameplay November 18, 2007

Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
NBA Live 08 is the worst basketball simulation game out right now. It's really easy to just give it to ur best player and have him drive in for the dunk or layup, and its the same way for the AI its impossible to guard a dunk. I just played as the lakers against the Celtics and the final score was 120 to 115!! Both teams had over 100 points by the end of the 3rd quarter!! Besides the horrible gameplay, the menus are terrible! the dynasty mode does have a lot of cool features, but its still difficult to manage ur team, because the menus arent fluid. 2ks menus are always very easy to go through. Also u cant improve a plyers stats through dynasty like on 2K. The graphics are pretty good, if u like comical disney graphics! The players look like they are all 5 foot and have huge heads, and they look ridiculous running down the court. If ur looking to buy an NBA game get 2K8.

4.0 out of 5 stars Having fun! June 26, 2013

My kids like the game, and more when it was the final in the NBA.
At this summer it would be the hit in the house in competition.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good June 11, 2009
Platform for Display:PlayStation2
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
NBA Live is a great game for basketball lovers, but not PS2 sports fanatics. It lacks the play-as-a-superstar in first person aspect of Madden and MLB the show, but still provides a good dynasty mode. I am dissapointed though, even now they still don't have the supertstar. The game would fly off the shelves.
