Très complet, comme à son habitude, NBA Live est toutefois un peu avare en nouveautés pour la deuxième année consécutive. Il reste un titre de niveau pour ceux qui auraient un peu de mal à maîtriser NBA 2K9. Du fun avant tout, c'est ce que propose le jeu d'Electronic Arts.

Die PlayStation 2-Version von NBA Live 09 unterscheidet sich grundlegend von den obigen Fassungen. Alle zentralen Neuerungen wie Academy-Modus, NBA Live 365-Funktion oder Lock On-Defensive wurden nicht implementiert. Stattdessen erwartet euch ein lauwarmes Update mit durchwachsener Technik.

I remember a time when NBA Live was an awesome franchise and each year’s installment was a must-have for sports gamers and fans of NBA ball, but those days are long gone. NBA Live 09 for the PS2 is disappointing in almost every way, unless you absolutely loved NBA Live 08 and couldn’t imagine any way that EA could have improved on that offering. NBA Live’s days on the PS2 appear to be numbered, and its quality of life has diminished to the point that, if you play this game for any length of time, you’ll be begging for them to remove the franchise from life support and let it die a merciful death.
