NBA Live 09 for Wii leaves mixed feelings

First off, I'm not a huge gamer -- not since the original NES have I been all that active in gaming. That being said, I tried NBA Live 09 for the Wii before buying, and I'm still not sure I'll drop $50 on this one.

The gameplay is pretty good, the All Play and Classic options give great flexibility for controls. I was disappointed that the Slam Dunk Contest was limited to 1 round in single player mode, but I was glad to see simplified controls compared to the last NBA Live game I'd played on PS2.

I still gave this game an 8, so it has a lot going for it. I loved the 3-point Contest and the 5-on-5. Superstar mode looks like a smart idea too. Maybe a fantasy draft like Madden would be a fun addition, but I'm a little biased to that game franchise.

In summary, this is a fun game and probably the best basketball game out now. The graphics are more fun than realistic (of course it's not the PS3), but it was a good overall experience. I would recommend it still for any sports fan, especially if you have friends to play it with -- locally or online.
