Problem is, it simply isn't as intuitive as "Live." It takes several games to get the feel for it and even when you do, you still can't pull off the same breadth of moves you can in EA's offering. [Nov 2005, p.78]
24/7 is worth the price of the game itself, and the beefed up association mode and improved authenticity of gameplay, despite the erratic AI, make this the best installment in the franchise despite the absence of the ESPN partnership.
Isomotion either really needs an overhaul, or it needs to be scrapped. And PLEASE do something about about the computer AI. But on the flip side, I love the new shot stick, and the strip and rip controls.
