Daily Radar
EA Sports' NBA Live franchise continues its evolution on the PlayStation with its best effort yet. The controls and artificial intelligence are extremely solid, and the inclusion of 50 of the all-time greats from the 1950s through the 1990s is a super addition. The graphics do the aging console proud with excellent player models and smooth animations with nary a hint of slowdown. The dispersal Draft, One-on-One versus Michael Jordan and 3-Point Shootout features round out the package nicely. Only the slapped-on franchise mode and the sometimes grueling tasks required to unlock the NBA Legends for use in the season mode detract from this otherwise stellar effort.
Mega Fun
Oh ja, die Jungs von EA wissen auch im Basketballgeschäft exzellent mitzumischen. Dank einer verbesserten künstlichen Intelligenz ist der Spielaufbau und -ablauf einfach realistisch. Durch den Einsatz der unterschiedlichen Kameraperspektiven, die man individuell einstellt, wird das ganze Geschehen sauber unterstützt. Für spielerische Abwechslung sorgen der 3-Punkte-Contest, das One-to-one auf den Hinterhöfen in der Bronx und die zahlreichen All-Star-Mannschaften vergangener Tage. Lediglich der Trainingsmodus hätte umfangreicher ausfallen können, damit auch Anfänger sich auf die schnelle Spielweise der NBA bestens einstellen.
PlayStation basketball fans that have been pleased with the Live series will buy this game and will most likely be pleased with the game and their purchase. I personally expect a LOT from my sports games, more so than any other genre. EA Sports has managed to meet my expectations with its NHL series and Madden NFL series. Live doesn't reach my lofty expectations. Though, it's still a solid and enjoyable gaming experience and I recommend it for any PlayStation owner looking to buy an NBA basketball game.
Player One
C'est bien simple, que ce soit sur Play ou N64, NBA Live supplante tous les autres jeux de basket existants. Incontournable pour les amateurs de parquet.

NBA Live 2000 is niet alleen voorzien van alle opties en mogelijkheden, het ziet er ook nog eens fingerlicking goed uit.
In the end, NBA Live 2000 is a good basketball game for the PlayStation. While it doesn't offer anything spectacular in graphics, control, or any one category, the game's overall feel and look is quite good. Fans of the NBA Live series will undoubtedly see it as the best iteration of the series yet for the PlayStation. The extras - like the arcade mode, one-on-one, and three-point contest - are nice and add to the game's value. Fans of previous versions of Live will have a good time.
Nouvelle version de NBA Live 2000 qui ne dément pas la richesse du titre d'Electronic Arts. Le principal défaut réside dans les graphismes et un moteur 3D un peu poussif mais sinon, NBA Live 2000 offre de nouvelles options vraiment intéressantes et qui devraient ravir les accros de NBA en intraveineuse.
Game Revolution
If you're a die-hard NBA Live fan, then you'll probably want to pick this up if only for the updated rosters and the new One on One mode. New fans, however, should rent before buying. You might even want to look back to NBA Live '99, which is frankly a better game. NBA Live 2000, on the other hand, should be considering retirement.
