    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.
  2. NBA Live 2001 is not only the PlayStation's best basketball game, but it's also the best playing b-ball sim on any system.
  3. Though while showing some nuances, the game is still old news for the ones who've gone onto the next generation systems.
  4. 100
    If you want a game that's more tailored to individual play rather than team cooperation, then NBA Live is a great choice.
  5. The gameplay hasn't evolved too terribly much but it has improved.
  6. Despite its graphical limitations, statistical miscues and outdated rosters, this is still one of the best basketball games for the Playstation.
  7. 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.
  8. Daily Radar
    With just about every conceivable option for a basketball game available, Live 2001 is even better than last year's excellent effort.
  9. The game is just plain fun and I can honestly say that I would rather play Live 2001 than almost half of the PS2's line-up of launch games.
