  • Summary: NBA Live 2001 follows the fine tradition established by previous versions while adding just about every conceivable gameplay option.

  1. With just about every conceivable option for a basketball game available, Live 2001 is even better than last year's excellent effort.
  2. 100
    If you want a game that's more tailored to individual play rather than team cooperation, then NBA Live is a great choice.
  3. 90
    Rarely has there even been a time in the history of sports game development that the implementation of new (mo-cap) moves actually achieved the result of positively impacting the gameplay of a title -- as much as it has here with NBA Live 2001.
  4. The gameplay hasn't evolved too terribly much but it has improved.
  5. The game delivers all the options and play modes you could possibly ask for, a rock-solid control scheme, and of course, EA Sports' unmatched presentation value and signature high-flying action.
  6. Despite its graphical limitations, statistical miscues and outdated rosters, this is still one of the best basketball games for the Playstation.
  7. While NBA Live 2001 is very much like the 2000 version, it offers some new extras like the NBA Challenge and new in-the paint moves that will appeal to die-hard ballers.
