  1. The game just has a smooth, arcade flow that I really appreciate. The action's fast paced, it's really easy to score, but at the same time, the defense is smart enough to pick off bad passes and swat horrible shots.

    Of course, it's better than last year, but it still has a ways to go before it supplants The Life as the reason to get this game. [Nov. 2006, p.134]

    The defensive flaws from last year still plague this years game, the additions to the court don’t necessarily make the game any more challenging; in fact, in some ways it makes it way too easy.
  4. The Life is a flawed, yet fun basketball game that's worth a look for anyone that's searching for a different take on the sport.
  5. Unless you really want to get behind the hard-knock life of an NBA star, your money would best be spent elsewhere.
  6. Having introduced the revolutionary story-driven basketball title last year, Sony unfortunately takes a few steps back with an unpolished gameplay and severely dated visuals for its sequel.
  7. If this is the best basketball game current-gen has to offer than I’m really glad next-gen is already here.

    The first 5 mintues of this game are terrible. The gameplay is sloppy and the story line isn't really "The Life", it's a waste of The first 5 mintues of this game are terrible. The gameplay is sloppy and the story line isn't really "The Life", it's a waste of life. I recommend another NBA video game because this one doesn't make a basket. Expand
