Play It For A While,
This review is from: NBA Live 2005 (PS2) (Video Game)
This game is a true representation of the NBA, in the NBA series players are becoming continually more similar to their real life counterparts, they show realistic emotion, they adjust their shot, in NBA Live 2005 nearly all of the moves you see in the NBA are present. There's up and unders, player slean in after poke faking, unrealistic shots are a thing of the pas.
This game is far more difficult than its predecessors, the superstar level of difficulty is near impossible, play it for while however and you become used to it, in the hardest level you have to use all of the moves in order succeed, most attempts inside are blocked and it is difficult to beat the player off the dribble.
The All-Star weekend has everything now, the rookie vs sophomore game, the all-star game, the three point shoot out and off course the dunk contest, awesome.
Thers an awesome array of shoes, jerseys and socks, the game is basketball, its ultra realistic but still hs the emotion of the basketball. But to get used to it, please play it for a while.
