Controls remain almost identical to previous years with a few noticeable exceptions. All shooting is now mapped to one button, and players can still freestyle pass and dribble. The shoulder buttons allow you to choose offensive and defensive strategy, run plays, and change matchups. Aside from that, anyone who's played before will be very familiar with the way things work. It begs the question, why play again? EA is taking strides toward the right direction, but this one's just not polished enough to bring in the noob's (or the 2K converts for that matter). However, if you're a fan and haven't played any other entries in a while, Live 10 is a no-brainer. Oh, it's also worth noting that if you are a hip-hop fan, the soundtrack is pretty phenomenal.
