    There's a well-crafted basketball game here for the fans. [Dec 2006, p.108]

    It's still one of the best basketball sims available, just don't expect much beyond recycled goods. [Dec 2006, p.85]
  3. There are a couple of nice new features, but none of them make this installment a must buy.
  4. If you're desperate to dunk on a desktop, a patched version of Live 07 likely won't offend your senses to the core, but you can do better on just about any other platform.
  5. A severe disappointment to fans of the genre. While EA has added many of the features that were missing from last year’s offering, there are still too many issues that need to be ironed out, including the animations, the flow, the online gameplay, and the challenge.
  6. NBA Live 07 isn't much different from last year's game, and the numerous bugs and glitches make it not much fun to play.

    Still, if EA Sports wants to release yearly updates to its sports games, that's all well and good, but it had better make sure the new versions are worth the "new release" price or more gamers will wise up and just pick up an older model at a fraction of the cost. [Dec. 2006, p.126]

    Game play is adequate if not buggy at times. The interface and underlying data management is very poor, they've broken some golden rules Game play is adequate if not buggy at times. The interface and underlying data management is very poor, they've broken some golden rules by shipping (and never fixing) software that is basically broken. Full Review »

They can't be serious about the crashing? Surely EA would have patched the game almost immediately?". Well I have been disabused of my baseless faith in the games/software industry. It's now almost 2008, I bought the game a month ago, and the patch that everyone has been screaming for has never come. I would almost go as far as saying that this game is a fraud. Full Review »
