    One of EA Sports basketball games!

    This is a basketball game that just doesn't seem realistic enough. The camera of this game also seems to be a little off. The graphics are nicely curved though and the gameplay can be very enjoyable. The sound of the gam... Read Full Review

What Gamespot Users have to say about NBA Live 2003

  • User Rating:7.2

    An ok game for bargain hunters, but this game struggles over whether to be a sim or an arcade game. Fun, but not deep.

    As a lover of cheap but slightly outdated sports games, I wanted to give Live 03 a try. I don't care about current rosters, and I'm not a graphics nazi, so old sports games can be a lot of fun for me. Unfortunately, th... Read Full Review

    Good

    People please play the NBA leagues before you say anything. All basketball games (just like all real-time strategies except Homeworld) are boring to play against computer, which is just there to prepare you for playing a... Read Full Review

    Frustrating but still fun

    I can't. I still can't think of a sports video game that ISN'T frustrating to play. I can't even think of ANY game that isn't atleast one bit frustrating at some point to play. Because you can't score or you always die a... Read Full Review

    Very good basketball sim, but could have used some glitch and overall polishing.

    This game is very good for playing with your friends or online, but the single player has some minor blandness. There is alot to do, but most of it consists of the same gameplay making it much to be desired. This is stil... Read Full Review

    NBA Live 2003 is a fast paced and entertaining basketball game, even with its many gameplay annoyances.

    Since the 1995 iteration, EA's NBA Live series has been the only consistent PC basketball franchise. Although they skipped 2002, EA has revamped NBA Live 2003 for the PC, and it turns out to be a fun, fast paced, arcade... Read Full Review

    NBA Live 2003 is a solid basketball game, but messes up in many places EA usually doesn't.

    NBA Live 2003 is a pretty good Basetball Simulation for the PC. It's #1, but that doesn't say much, because there wasn't any other NBA game for the PC, and even if there was, it wouldn't have been very good. The fra... Read Full Review

    Better than the XBOX version, but still a bad game.

    NBA Live 2003 is a pretty different game. The thing that sets this game apart from other games is the fact that moving around gets really frustrating. It is like you can only movie certain places on the court. It kind of... Read Full Review
