This game should really be a lot better than the one you get. It is not a terrible game, in fact it is not bad to play it is just that I really did expect more from it.
On the plus side it is an improvement on the 06 version and some of the faults like the ultra difficult free throw mechanic has been replaced for a much more realistic one.
There are a number of game options such as dynasty mode, instant play and season as well as a practice section and a number of mini games such as a slam dunk competition to keep you entertained.
The game controls are not bad in places and I like the feature that superstar players have particular strengths which you can utilise to your advantage, however the one problem is that quite often it is a process oif trial and error to get an understanding of what some of the skills are especially for the really top players who have a number of speciality moves and even more when they are in the zone.
On the down side some of the controls can be quite unresponsive and frequently players get stuck in certain positions and the whole thing does not lok at all realistic.
For me I still do not think that NBA Live have mastered their basketball games on the 360 and I would not recommend spending money on this instead wait and see what they produce for 08.
