Default NBA Live 09

Anyone got NBA Live 09?

Do you like it? How are you going in it?

I've started a season with the Raptors. I think I'm 5-6 at the moment.

It's my only option for the wii.

I resisted the urge to pick it up the other day in Bestbuy because I was on a mission to buy other things.

Is it any good?

NBA Live is terrible .... I've been playing NBA 2K9 at my buddies and it's a blast and so much better than Live. JMO though.

OK. here's a related question. How is 2K8 compared to 2K9? Are they pretty much the same game but with the newer one having better rosters? Just curious as i may pick up 2K8 used for pretty cheap and can add create the players that aren't in the game, but are on the raps...

As a non hardcore game player, should i do this instead of forking out $60 for a new game?

If you want to play a game that's more simulation and not so arcadie, then 2K9 is hands down the better of the two. Definitely gives you more abilities to have your players do many more moves (especially in the post with your big men) than you can in Live. More strategic too where with Live its just plays like a pick-up game.

fancy, to answer your question, 2k9 is better when it relates to its defense. The lock down defender thing last year was terrible. I honestly had Shaq guard Nash in one game and Nash couldn't do anything.

They fixed that this year. Also, if you're online, they update the rosters automatically and their attribute points. So if a rookie or any player out preforms their expectations those will be adjusted as the season in the NBA progresses.

cool. thanks cg. As i'm not that hardcore with basketball games, i may still end up getting the older one. You can create players (in 2k8) right?

Just a question, doesn't NBA Live 09 do that too?

just started downloading it too. Suposedly it doesnt need a crack.

Are you downloading this one Sands? NBA2K9_rip_3DMGAME.

I have a feeling that it wont work. And Im pretty sure it wont work online. None of the cracked games usually do. Also EA has invented a new kind of anti-piracy system so this could be a problem too.
