    This game was a big disappoinment they improved little if at all. So what they have an NBA Store. What does it do for gameplay? NOTHING.The graphics suck compared to 2k4. P.S. watch a game on t.v. and then play Nba Live 2004 then you see how unrealistic it really is

  1. Play Magazine

    EA has done it again, implementing expanded Freestyle control, improved defensive AI, superior graphics and a brand-new announce team...Looking for the best basketball game? NBA Live 2004 is nothing but net. [Nov 2003, p.105]
  2. Official U.S. Playstation Magazine
    90
    The gameplay has been dramatically tweaked, but the changes haven't detracted from the quick and responsive pace of the previous game. [Dec 2003, p.182]
  3. The perfect purchase for simulation basketball fans that want a little of arcade-like freedom.
