    Good game but not all that

    This is crap.

    NBA Live 06 for the Xbox 360 is by far one the worst basketball games ever created. I could almost live without the missing features, but the gameplay hasn't changed much. The absolute worst part about this game is the... Read Full Review

    Overall solid game

    This game, like its predecessors, features dynasty mode, 1 on 1, and many other modes of game-play. The All-Star weekend stuff is fun to play every once in a while, but one mode I believe is lacking is a superstar mode, ... Read Full Review

    BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! Go back to the drawing board EA.

    When I played NBA Live 2005, I was in awe of an NBA Live Game for the first time in a long time. 06 disapointed me. Its fast paced yet somewhat followed the rules of physics but still has put me in bitter disgust. A gam... Read Full Review

    In the end, i think that EA didn't do a good job

    Gameplay- This has has gotten better and worse. Adding freestyle super star moves wasn't a bad idea, but see Yao Ming do a behind the back lay-up disturbed me. Free throws still are incredibly easy and the defense isn't ... Read Full Review

    Fun for a while but doesn't catch all the goodness of basketball.

    The only thing about EA sports games is there is only one new feature, an updated roster, and very slightly improved graphics. With NBA live 06 the same applys, the only new thing is the freestyle playmaker abilty. While... Read Full Review

    Lots of fun, but leaves you hoping that 07 is much improved...

    This game was actually a lot of fun, and it stayed in my xbox for over 4 months. I pop it in every so often these days when i feel like a break from madden and oddworld:SW . The player graphics are a little disappointing... Read Full Review
