    If you're a big basketball fan, go out and buy NBA 2K6, because it's a must and officially it's extremely accurate.
  2. NBA 2K6 also has full Live support, something that mysteriously disappeared from "NBA Live 06" just before it was released. Take your pick. [Official UK Xbox Magazine]

I didnt have much Well i can only speak for the gameplay when playing on the season mode but once again sega sports is too arcadish for me. I didnt have much of a feel of a simulation game because i can dunk or drive to the hoop almost any play. Really that one error alone is a huge error to me which dropped 4 to 5 points off of my ranking. Other than that the gameplay is good and i'm sure the online is a blast. I'm going to have to rent Live 06 which will hopefully give me a little more realistic gameplay. we'll see. Full Review »

Overall this game is much much better than Live, but it still does have a few problems. I really hate the shot stick, and wish it would have the option of the old juke moves with the right thumb stick. But overall I really like this game and will continue playing it instead of Live.
