Rated 9 out of 10 by JJ4DUKE A HUGE Step Up
NBA Live 10 is nothing like the other NBA Live games (in the good way). Everything about this game is better than Live 09. I have all of the Live games since 03 (which in my mind is better than all the of 'em except Live 10) so I realize how advanced this is compared to the others. Some things are the same (like the very annoying counteroffers while trading) but now there's new alot of upgrades (like off-ball movement and overall gameplay). If you compare it to NBA 2K10 I believe Live is better. Gameplay is similar but navigating the menu on 2K10 and things a do ALOT like trading is extremely confusing. Plus terrible players on 2K10 wanna sign for millions. For example, I tried signing a D-League player who was a 62 and he asked for 6 million a year plus a signing bonus. Now I'm not saying 2K10 is bad, I love the My Player mode and just playing the game, but Live is better. If you can only offord one of these games, get NBA Live 10. Overall a great buy and BEST basketball game out there.

Nba live 10 has incredible game play like, four-point plays and and ones. The sneakers are realistic and when you edit your player on the team like rookie of the year Derrick Rose you can put any sneakers of the brand that he wears which are addidas. The brands on NBA Live 10 are,Addidas,Nike,and,Jordan. I also like how you can customize the forearm bands and put the letters on it. I like that before you play the game you can go to the hangar and dunk or shoot. What i also like about this game is that you can play through trainingcamp. What i like about the dynasty mode is that signing free agents is very easy. The call playing is a little bit hard i like the way you can pivot in the triple threat posisition. I also like the post up moves and the bigmen taking close hooksshots. The freestyle passing is so increbible and Live 1s better than 2k this year i can't wait until live 11 comes out hopefully it'll have better graphics. 2k needs to step their game up
Rated 0 out of 10 ALLLOOOT BETTER!!!!
Ok...ok...I see that nba live has done there homework this year...it's about time...to start i've always been a fan of NBA 2K and have always bought both games every year...but this one seems not to be a waste of money...everthing seems to be alot better at least in the demo so far..the only gripe I still have is in the graphics..they still look cartoony..but the collision and gameplay is very tight and exciteing...this is a must buy for me..and if your a hardcore live fan for you too...it's still to early to compare to 2K since there is no demo yet...but best believe i'll be back with my full review of each demo...so save that money ...pre-order if you are smart and buy both...I have a feeling this year is a NBA fans dream...oh yeah just so you live fans know they stole one of NBA 2K's programers and you can tell...the control is all most identical...the best NBA LIVE in years...

Over the past couple of years, when you think of a NBA game, you think of NBA 2k and you wouldn't b wrong either. However, for those who remember, there was a time where that last sentence would end with NBA Live. EA Sports' last stand with a basketball franchise, NBA Live 10 was a very underrated and good video game. In NBA Live, the graphics are significantly improved, realism is good, and most of the annoying features from the previous installment has been removed. Usually, these are factors that make up a good game, but since NBA 2k is so outstandly good, NBA Live 10 gets lost in the shuffle. But, if you remember the good old days of NBA Live and you are one of the very fewwho doesn't appreciate the NBA 2k franchise, NBA Live 10 is a very good game. Hopefully, in the future EA Sports doesn't have the same unfortunate fate happen to the rest of its games.
Rated 8 out of 10 by tayman better, but still room for improvement
for the past few years since about 2007 I've played live and liked it for the most part. however this year I played NBA 2K 10 and loved it. So comparing live and 2K I would give the edge to 2K but I must say I'm impressed with the improvements live made the especially the way the players looked that is one thing live definitely did better on I mean Lebron has all the tats that he has in real life Kobe finally doesn't look like a bird, however I think the arenas could still use some improvement. but one thing I think live has to get if they want to compete with 2K is some kind of superstar/my player mode, this is something I've been really wanting ever since Madden came out with superstar and 2K finally made it happen and it was amazing with out a doubt the best part of the game. But overall live made some great improvement and is a pretty solid basketball game.

Better than last years version of the game. Overall if you are looking for a good basketball experience and fun and you bought this game and you thought wrong. you should have went to 2k10. the game graphics are great but look to much like a cartoon to me. the the play expirence is like any other live game out there. the online play is mediocore and need a little work. the game need to get back to it roots and to start making better games. If liked to nba live 09 than you will love to play this game. but if you never played this series of basketball games than you shouldn't start now. ea sports this year has set the tone for sports games. the momentum carried from madden 10 and ncaa 10 would probally presuade you to buy ilive but please dont. use that money of yours wand dont buy this game but buy 2k10 and if you bought live take it back and buy 2k10
Rated 8 out of 10 by go live it has its ups and downs
i think that nba live 10 is a pretty good game. it has great graphics and it has way better sound afecs than nba 2k10. but the challege is okay after you get the hang of the gameit is very easy to but in 2k10 the challege is great not to hard not easy it depends on what team you are playing. nba live 10 has great extra features like dyamic season you gat a chance to go against your buds in this feautre and the online updates on all of your favorite teansand players and if they are doin a good job it will be like thats in the video game. if i was forced to chose betwen these 2 games games i would end up wakin out of that door with nba live 10 any day. this just a great game. if you get this game you will not regret trust me. nba 2k10 is good but it is not live 10 , remember nba 10 any day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I had them both, Live 10 and 2k10. 2k10 went back. The frame-rate issues and overall gameplay of 2k10 frustrated me. Live just felt great. My players go where I want them to go and do what I ask them to. This is the BEST bball game I have played in 20 years of gaming. 2k10 Graphics are a little better, but as soon as you try to move your player around, the difference is huge. The patch for 2k10 did not help most of the frame-rate issues. Only the biggest one. I also am extremely fond of the Dynamic Season. I am playing along with the Cavs and really enjoying it. I have thought for the past three years that Live had better post and dribble moves than 2k10, and I still believe this. 2k10 may have a larger variety of these things, but you can't do half of them unless you are Houdini with the controller. LIVE WINS!
Rated 10 out of 10 by S!L3nt A$$@$$!n from LIVE to 2K back to LIVE
I used to be a long EA sports bball fan all the way back when they used to call their games "Lakers vs Celtics and the NBA Playoffs"...up until around 2003...then I switched to the NBA 2K series and bought their games for the past few, loved it at first, then their games started to get stale...every year I download both demos and NBA 2K would get most of my attention. This year I was blown away by NBA LIVE 10, they really stepped up their game...the full game is even better! It feels like im at a real NBA game! Great NBA atmosphere!...NBA 2K10 looked and played a lot like NBA 2K9 to me and Im not much of a fan of their new features plus there players still look stiff to me, I always had an issue with that. NBA LIVE 10 is more realistic and a really fun game. The LIVE series may pass 2K by next year unless 2K step it up!
Rated 9 out of 10 by kingjames fan live is a beast game
ive always played 2k but i didnt like 2k10 i was highly dissappointed so i downloaded the demo for live ten and had to get it its a great game i told myself that i would never buy another 2k game without getting te demo first because im not waisting anymore of my money luckily i got nba live 10 on black friday so it was really cheap but the game is great graphics arn't so hot but if you have a good tv there are realistic sound great off ball movements the alley oops are better on 2k but they still get you hyped on live lol i think that if live keeps improving from this point there will eventually come back and get the popularity rate up there with 2k because the last game i played from live was back in 2005 i havent seen all the features from live but i know the game is great and fun to play on and off line
