    I think is just about the same as NBA2K3 only for the free style. that made everything jump up a lil on the scale.

    If up-tempo action and innovative control are more important to you than realism and online play, this may be your b-ball baby in 2003. [Winter 2002, p.99]
  2. With improved graphics, better animations, and a control system that, like their commercials say, allows players to fully express themselves anyway they want, Live 2003 is unbelievably solid.
  3. Freestyle control allows unparalleled dribbling and defensive control.
