Still, NBA Live 07’s gameplay, best described as arcade-style and closer to little-brother title NBA Street than a true simulation, is still enjoyable taken as a whole with some good gameplay mode offerings. While NBA Live 07 might not be starting-lineup material, it sits comfortably in the sixth-man spot, indulging its longtime fans of the franchise with another reliable rendition to get their “basketball jones” on.

Quel bon cru que cette saison 2007 de NBA live ! Si quelques progrès graphiques avaient pu être opérés, nous aurions tenu là un des meilleurs titres de la série. Il n'en reste pas moins très bon et assez novateur pour justifier son achat, qu'on possède son aîné ou non.

With Live 07 pulling up lame on the 360, the PlayStation 2 and Xbox are your best bet if you're looking for a good game of NBA Live. The new features don't add much to the overall experience, but the game still plays well and has plenty of game modes. If you're trying to choose between the PlayStation 2 and Xbox versions, the PS2's controllers are a little friendlier, but the Xbox looks much better, especially if you're playing it in high definition.

This is not a pretty game either for the most part. While I like the idea of trying to use real NBA player faces on the players, it comes across here as creepy at best and funny at worst. I think EA needs to spend a little more time getting the correct head size to body size ratio for Live 08. There is the occasional cool looking move or dunk but for the most part it really looks like a game that could have been released back in 2000. I did enjoy the commentary by Marv Albert and Steve Kerr, but after that the sounds are barely there.

You broke my heart, NBA Live 07, you broke my heart. The game is full of bugs and glitches that make it almost impossible to play, and the few additions with the X-Factor and "redefined" Freestyle Superstar controls don't make enough impact on the game to make it playable or enjoyable. The additions to the dynasty mode, while nice, still don't save you from that poor gameplay experience (unless you feel like simming every single game). Save yourself the frustration, and let NBA Live 07 ride on the bench for this year. Hopefully it will develop into something stronger in the offseason for next year, minus the irritating game issues.
