NBA live is back on the psp. Lets get to the good things first. The new dynasty mode is really deep and it includes hiring staff and training camp. The all star weekend features are pretty good which includes the slam dunk contest 3 point shootout and rookie challenge. But the real downfall of this game is the gameplay. the controls are clunky which leads to wrong passes and missed layups. Also the superstar features are very unbalanced. For example , Ben Gordon's overall is 78 but when on the outside shooter mode he makes every 3 pointer and often shooter outside shooter are more powerful during games then power mode and inside scorer modes. I'd only recommend it to people who are really deep into basketball.

I am a NBA fan so i bought it the day it came out. I love the game becasue it is so much better than the last one(i got the last one too). The freestyle got better because you can switch it during a game. The contols as well as the graphics are pretty much the same. Nothig bigreally changed. The online is kinda annoying becasue it is slow. I bought it becasue i am a NBA fan, but if you are not one, just rent it. This is the first Bball game that i would offer for the psp system so far.
