    NBA LIVE 98

    Die Stimmung im Stadion reißt Sie mit, Sie dribbeln über das Feld. Doch je näher Sie dem Ziel kommen, desto kleiner scheint der Korb zu werden. 3,50 Meter über dem Boden, klein wie ein Nadelöhr, Sie springen, der Dunk gelingt, und die Zuschauer jubeln!
    Jenseits des Vorstellbaren
    NBA Live 98 - Meet the Dream Team!

    NBA LIVE '98 is an improvement over the previous year's version, as it features a host of new options. One of the most notable features that fans of the series will notice is that you can still create your own players, but now you can also create entire teams. Icon Passing is a popular staple of the series, which allows you to pass the ball to a specific teammate. You can also choose from a complete playbook of offensive and defensive plays that can be called on the fly, which keeps the flow of the game intact. With regard to game modes, you'll find Exhibition games, Season mode, Playoffs, and a new 3-Point Shootout mode. TNT's own Verne Lundquist provides the play-by-play commentary, which helps put you right in the game. You can also take on a friend in the Versus mode to prove your hardwood supremacy.
