As bad as Live 2000 is, I figure the whole 'Live' franchise is so ingrained into the psyche of today's gamers that they've already gone out and purchased this game without noticing anything wrong with it. The rest of you, who for whatever reason have not bought it already, please listen when I say that you are better off to stay away. Live 2000 is not worthy of having Michael Jordan's name attached to it and certainly not worthy of your hard-earned dollars; if nothing else, Live 2000 is a big step backwards for the 'Live' franchise. Aside from the inclusion of the game's legends and MJ, there isn't anything in Live 2000 to set it apart from the piles of NBA games on the market. Okay, now that Live fans have finished reading my review, I'll have you know that I am ready for the onslaught of negative email.
