View Full Version : NBA 2K7 or NBA LIVE

I know its early but I will be getting one of the two and I need some input. From what I have read and seen they seem to be pretty equal right now.. at least in my mind. I have always been a 2K guy but if Live is better I will get it. Any and all information/opinions are needed and welcome.

09-21-2006, 07:09 PM
I'd go with NBA Live

Gameplay and graphics go to 2K7. I've never been a Live fan, I dont think basketball is one of EA's strengths.

2K is overall a better game but IMO Live has a more fluid gameplay. I think that is due more too its arcade style. I would go for 2K

Since my favorite basketball game all time is NBA Jam I have to go with live. The thing about basketball games is I only play them with friends over, they are boring single player cause the Computer player just holds the ball for 23 seconds than shoots it.

2k7, Live is too complicated. I don't have the patience to master the controls. I like the complexity of Madden, but when I'm playing a bball vid game, I wanna be able to just pick up the controller and have fun. Football is more of a thinking man's game, so I can understand and appreciate the complexity of Madden. Bball is a simple game, no need to make the video game so damn complicated.

I didnt find it complicated at all. What was so hard?

It takes a couple of games to really get down. The controls are a lot more intricate than the 2K series. You can pick up the controller in 2k and work like 3 buttons and have a good time. For live, you gotta know how to use all 8 buttons and when to use em. Its nice when you spend time learning it, but I just wanna play a simple bball game. I got much more enjoyment out of the 2k series, it was simpler and funner to me. Just work the right analog stick and pass or shoot. Simple and still fun.

THats funny because the controls are way more complicated in the 2k series. Knowing how to do crossovers and stuff took a while for me to figure out with last years. Live is way more cut and dry IMO

I think if anything, 2k is more complicated than live

Live is right stick to do moves, B to shoot, A to pass, R turbo

2k has 3 buttons to drop step, 2 buttons to alley-oop, and the most ******** move sheme ever, and shot stick

The last bball game I played was 2k5, and in 2k5 all you gotta do is go nuts on the right analog stick, drive and shoot, or pass. I didn't find it complicated at all. I remember live 2k5's gamespeed is just too fast for someone to just pick it up and play right away, and if I remember correctly, the controls were more detailed. It mightve changed, but thats how it was in 2k5.

For the record, I play a sonics association on NBA 2k7, and Wilcox is a beast at PF. Go to edit player and change his primary position to PF and watch his overall rating go up.

Someimes when i have a more physical player playing me in the middle i switch my lineup around so that Wilcox is my starter at Center.

Is there an accelerated clock or would I have to play 12 periods to get some real player minutes? i dont have time to check my game right now. I want to get all players involved and have some real stats but, I figure if i played 12 minutues superstar, I would score in the high 100's every game if i took my time and played like a real b-ball game.

Saer Sene. He is rated 70 OVR and has no offense, but he is a defensive powerhouse. On 5 minute quarters, he is averaging 10.2 RPG and 3.1 BPG. If you start him you need a good PF to do your inside work, so keep that in mind.

Also, Brandon Roy is amazing. But he's Brandon Roy. He's alwasy amazing.

Random Question:

In 2K7, what camera angle do you play with?

I always play with the 2K angle because, I cant stand the east to west default angle.
