    NBA Live '97 features all 29 NBA teams plus two all-star teams, which translates to over 300 real NBA players, including rookies on updated rosters As far as gameplay goes, you've got Exhibition, Season, and Playoff modes, as well as all-new offensive and defensive plays. The interesting thing about the plays is that they can be programmed and changed on the fly. You also get all the action you'd expect to see in a basketball sim, rim-rattling dunks, fade away jumpers, delicate finger rolls, and even no-look, behind-the-back passes. Motion-capture sessions were done by NBA star Mitch Richmond, so you can expect some great moves. This game also marks the first appearance of Shaquille O'Neal in an EA game.
