    NBA Live 2005 is a great game to play. You have great options in the game and the game mode are enjoyable

    I like NBA Live 2005 because it is really fluid for a PS2 basketball game. You can learn it very easily and its fun. The dunk contest is the hard part of the game. You must learn a variety of controls to learn to make th... Read Full Review

    I was surprised, good job EA.

    Besides MVP Baseball, this might be EA's best effort this year. The game is very polished. The graphics look more polished than last year's version, especially in the all-star challenge, X-box does make a difference in t... Read Full Review

    What we all expected from EA. Solid simulation of NBA basketball with great graphics and smooth gameplay.

    This years NBA Live is off the hook. The graphics look good, the sounds of the game are awesome with new sound tracks and the game play has improved drastically. The franchise mode is what EA Sports lives for. Thi... Read Full Review
