    The game is definitely great but there are some bugs the needs to be patch. Like the moonwalk effect on players and sometimes dunkers can dunk behind the backboard.

    This game is great except for one or two things. First it does not keep career stats in Dynasty Mode. Second the traing you can buy for your team does more harm than good for some reason.

    With the enhanced graphics, comentary, gameplay and control, this is the best ever basketball game on pc. the dynasty mode and the nba shop give u much more fun! i have a ps2 nba live 2004 but the pc version is prettier and faster when loading. though the pc version dosen't support force feed back, it is still my no.1 choice.

  1. Nothing is more basketball than humiliating your opponent with ball handling and dribbling, and the Freestyle Control offers the gratification and humiliation experienced by any player no a court that was just faked out in front of a sell-out crowd.
  2. Offering several new features, as well as improvements to the game's graphics, sound, and overall polish, NBA Live 2004 is a good game for Live fans and general basketball fans alike.
  3. The game's still far from perfect, but NBA Live 2004 is much more enjoyable than last year's version. [Mar 2004, p.77]
