  1. NBA Live 07 improves on its predecessor best feature: the graphics. The game looks unbelievably good. Add to that some new features and improved gameplay, and it’s hard to turn your back on the game.
  2. It was just so damn disappointing. For a game that laid such a promising foundation last year, there really hasn’t been as large a leap forward as we would have liked.
  3. A solid game of basketball, but not one worth your money if you have Live 06.
  4. NBA Live 07 is an example of a game rushed to meet the deadline without paying any attention to quality. There are so many bugs in the game that any semblance of a basketball simulation is lost.
  5. But the list of shortcomings is so long that you wonder how the company has the cajones to charge $10 more for this version over the current-gen titles. Those are some big brass basketballs.
  6. 50
    This just doesn't feel like basketball: there's no drama, you'll go full quarters without bothering to glance at the scoreboard, and even the swish of the basket on a long 3-pointer feels off. Live 07 tries to bridge the gap between itself and its rival by adding features, but it doesn't come close to this year's clear basketball champion: "NBA 2K7."
  7. The sad news is that the game is filled with tons of bad gameplay.

    Right, it has many flaws, but it also has the old all star moves, the al star weekend the old commentators, great presentation and probably the most fun basketball action on Xbox 360, if you find for something like 5 bucks, just get it :D Expand
