Almost life like
Different Free Throw line Shooting type
There were a few glitches but its still fun to play, its the best when u play Dynasty Mode, as u r in the the free throw line, you hear ur home crowd chanting MVP! MVP!
I find it amazing with the new pick and roll offense
Nba live Academy
Also as u play the game, play callings become very useful such as pick n roll, player isolation, triangle power and low post, also with the defense.
I wish Nba Live 09 got atleast an 8. It's amazing, though there were some few rough edges, that can't stop u frm having a great time playing it.
In Dynasty Mode, it feels realistic like u are playing a season.
Also the choice of music is fun to listen, its great to practice with some Academy challenges if u are not that good yet. Also FIBA championship is cool. i'm happy there are I think over 25 countries now in the game.
There are different covers for Nba Live 09, mine is Luol Deng on it.
I'm so happy I bought this game.
