    The deep Dynasty mode is the only feature worth the price of admission. The day-to-day tasks are organized better than NBA 2K7’s Association mode, and new features like the NBA rumors and managing assistants give sports fans a greater sense of control.

    This year, NBA Live falls just short of continuing its dynasty as the best basketball game around. [Nov 2006, p.73]

    I really find the gameplay hard but die-hard basketball fans would love this game.

Players do get hurt, tired, injured, and this stuff happens in everyday life, and you have to account for it. College guys usually average about 30 minutes a game, and players in the pros average about 35-38, with some going 40, but not all. It's because coaches like players playing with close to full energy, and tired players can slow down the game and they may risk injury. This accounts for pace, and you can adjust the sliders. The only goofy thing I find are that the dunk, layup, and shoot buttons are 3 different buttons, but if you play it long enough, you get used to it, like learning another language, but then you get the grasp of it. It's still the same great style, fast paced, and allows hard-core game players to set realistic rotations and use set plays, matchup, or so forth. Good if you're a hardcore fan....if not, you just might be lost in the shuffle." I agree - you get used to the gameplay, and after a while, it's actually quite fun. I enjoy playing this game.
