    NBA Live is definitely back. Tight controls, amazing visuals (stand a few feet away from an HDTV and you'll be hard pressed to tell the difference between NBA Live and Live TV) brilliant audio and deep features (that I've yet to completely explore) make this a real winner in my opinion. You won't be disappointed.

    Its Straight i guess. definetely needs the all star competitions back. adn the ai could be way smarter. i thinkit would be better if the had seperate buttons for shooting and dunking though. other than that its very addicting. the real life likeness of nba stars are definitely a plus.

  1. A game that features numerous upgrades guaranteed to please hoops fans who love rainbow threes and rim rattling dunks. On top of that, it has one of the most impressive sounding crowds this side of FIFA 10, and those 20,000 screaming maniacs make all the difference.

    NBA Live 10, while it certainly has issues that people are going to gripe about, is exactly what the series needed to fire up its dwindling fan base and add new players alike. The gameplay is nicely refined and emulates real basketball with much greater success than past games.
  3. Though players no longer look like stunningly detailed mannequins, they do sometimes warp toward the basket or other players because an animation key tells them to. More important, Live still plays just too fast for our liking. But Live 10 shows the series is at least heading in the right direction.
