NBA Live 07 includes a few new modes and features that will surely satisfy fans of the franchise. The novelty of seeing NBA Live on the portable has faded, but the gameplay is still good enough to make the game worthwhile.

Weil NBA Live 07 aber die erste komplette und bislang einzige Basketball-Simulation auf dem Handheld ist, gehört sie bei allen Fans in den UMD-Schacht. Denn unabhängig von der fehlenden Weiterentwicklung werdet ihr in einer beeindruckenden Kulisse taktisch gefordert und freut euch über intelligente Mit- und Gegenspieler. Für die nächste Ausgabe wünsche ich mir lediglich ein offeneres Spiel, in dem weder vorgefertigte Züge zum Korb noch automatisch agierende Verteidiger eine so deutliche Präsenz wie in diesem Jahr haben.

For on-the-go basketball, NBA Live 07 is a first-round pick. It's got both quick and deep modes, with Dynasty being a welcome addition. I can really see people getting into the PS2 connectivity, as an 82-game season is sometimes too long for playing on one console. NBA Live 07's gameplay itself is right up there with its console siblings -- and even better in some respects (one shoot button). I'm still going with the NBA 2K series on consoles, but I think I've found my new favorite portable hoops title.

Dans la continuité d'un NBA Live 06, ce volet s'impose comme un titre à posséder si l'on joue sur PSP et que l'on est fan de la discipline. Très complet et accessible à tous, voilà un jeu qui saura convaincre malgré un surplace graphique.

While last year it may have been impressive seeing Live in portable form, the results this year are far less remarkable. Tossing in a few minigames is a step in the right direction, but the addition of a multiseason dynasty mode that most people will likely never play seems like a waste of resources, especially when the gameplay is so flawed. If you don't own Live 06 and you're craving a hoops game on the go, NBA Live 07 is worth a look, but if you do own last year's game, there's just not enough of an improvement to justify a purchase.

NBA Live 07 for the PSP is a great attempt to bring fans of the hardwood a deep and exclusive-rich portable game that goes beyond the console version but sadly it fails in its execution. With lengthy load times, slow framerate and the unfortunate Superstar moves just keep this game from being fun despite its decent mini-games and great multiplayer aspect. Skip this one, sports fans, and hope next year EA Sports will fix these problems.

While the PSP version of NBA Live 07 is much better than that of the PS2 and Xbox, it's not better by too much. The game still has a lot of A.I. and gameplay flaws, and the domineering power of the Superstar control from last year really exerts its influence in this year's game. On the plus side, it's great to see Dynasty mode and the EA Media Center, which should be included in many other games. Unfortunately, dynasty mode, while nice, still won't save you from that poor gameplay experience (unless you feel like simming every single game), which is a step back from what this game could've been on the portable.

The game has positives, they're just away from the 5-on-5 parquet. The franchise mode is deep and will give you plenty to do, from signing coaches to managing your team's fatigue levels. There are two new minigames that are fun distractions, particularly the 2 Ball game. But the coolest thing in the game is the EA Media center. If you have any music on your memory stick, it'll put make it available in the game, with no effort on your part. There's nothing quite like scrolling menus while tapping your toe to Linda Ronstadt's "Different Drum." Very NBA.
NBA Live 07 isn’t quite the upgrade we’d hoped for. The game is almost a carbon copy of last year’s game, albeit with more features. EA have tried to even out the game play by including a player who has the “X-Factor” but you’re more likely to just utilise your superstar players whilst you keep executing the same moves again and again. Unless you’re a die hard NBA Live fan this game is hard to recommend, the game is far too similar to it’s predecessor and as such it’s hard to see the game as anything other than a rehash.
