Well where do I begin. This game literally knocks out NBA 2K5 with one punch. Its that good.
The dunk contest is perhaps the most innovative mini game I have ever played and its only an appetizer to what is the main course. If you love hoops then this game will more than satisfy your needs.
A deep, deep, deep dynasty mode is the real stroke of ingenious I believe. Scouting rookies, free agengy with real contracts, proper trades (for a change), training your own ball club, I think I am getting at something here. Reminds you of Madden, where details are aplenty yet easily accessible for gamers who wanna just jump right on in.
Live 2005 is great and could even have been a little better, only if I was actually in the game (come on EA get us, the real ballers in there).
Well to wrap up I only have one caution: BEWARE – This game has the power to take away hours of your life without you even noticing, its that good!
