    Default Live 09 or 2K9?

    I got Live this year, I guess the DNA thing covinced me lol. It's not bad, but I think I'm gonna give it back for 2K9. Everytime I play against the lakers, Derek Fisher drops like 30-40. Rajon Rondo is always draining fadeaway 3's, it's just very unrealistic. Also, the isomotion doesn't work at all, becasue your defender is just glued to you. Plus, the gameplay is pretty boring. What about you guys?

    If you are looking for a more true to life BBall game, the 2K line has been better for most of the decade. Some people think it's too slow for a video game, I kind of see their point but to me Live is just way too fast for a bball sim. Doesn't accurately reflect real on-court play, just a bunch of too fast guys running around each other. I haven't played either of this year's iterations but that's been my general review of the series as a whole.

    NBA2k > NBA LIVE

    I noticed how much better NBA 2K was when I had both games way back then. 2K's graphics were better, the life like movements and different dribbles were fun to do.

    2K9 the crowd is very into the game, they jump up and down and chant names...a lot more fun then Live.

    I have Live '08 and 2k9, Live is garbage, they tend to be lazy on advancement.

    NBA Live - Arcade style
    NBA 2k - Simulator (more fun imo)

    Only problem with 2k9 is that at random times the team can go from shooting 30& to 80% in a matter of a few minutes. And at times I can get 10 blocks with a center that averages 0.5 blocks per game....its seems like when you actually play a game that it goes against their average stats.

    2k9 is a very addicting game,however. And the graphics are the best i have ever seen in a sports game. Up close graphics and the fluid game play is amazing.

    Thumbs up

    I gave back live and got 2k9 a couple days ago. It's unbelievable, it's much more realistic, and more fun at the same time. The graphics are better, the animations are better, the gameplay is much better. It looks like your watching an NBA game when your playing it. And the living roster thing is much better than the DNA thing, you actually notice the living rosters. Thanks for the advice guys

    I suck though, still getting used to the controls. I like using the Rockets, Yao is unstoppable in that game.

    I love the dunk contest, hated the one in live. I couldn't do any of that jumbotron crap, and neither could any real player ever. I know it's a dunk contest, but it's too unrealistic. The props are really cool.
