Anyone disappointed with NBA Live 07?

My son got NBA Live 07 for the PS2 this past weekend and I took some time to play a legends game (80's vs 50's). I thought the graphics were horrible, I felt like I was playing a old Sega BK game. Anyone else think the graphics suck on this game? I did not play a regular game with the current players so I am not sure how they look. I just saw a tv commercial for the other NBA07 game and those graphics looked alot better, do people prefer EA's Live or game or the other one?

Threads like these make me appreciate my 360, despite my occassional pangs of regret for dumping my original Xbox.

But it looks great on 360 even though I think the gameplay on 2k7 is a little better. Sorry I can't help with PS2.

I got Live 07 for my old Xbox and pretty much just use it playing against my roommate.

A lot of my early struggles come from getting the hang of details like inbounding and off-the-ball play. Graphics wise I think its an improvement over 06.

I'm just frustrated because I am getting my ass kicked right now.

But that will change... oh yes... that will change.

Based on reactions everywhere since Live 07's arrival (both 360 and previous gen versions), disappointment is THE word included in everybody's appraisal.

That is, it's included by those wishing to be kind.

Why does anyone, anywhere buy Live over the 2K series? Live has never been as good as 2K all the way back to the very first game on the Dreamcast.

Anyway to stop ranting, it is pretty much the opinion of most people that this years version of Live is one of the worst in several years.

People buy it because EA does a fantastic job advertising so people think that's the only game in town (a la Madden). When in fact, a much superior bball game is available. Oh well, the OP should have done the homework and check out some honest reviews on the net before buying a crappy game.

For a couple years (04 and 05), the 2k series was not up to par and Live was actually a better game (although not great). Every other year, however, including this year and last, 2k was clearly superior.

I haven't played any Live 07, but from the reviews I've read the game is just plain bad regardless of the system.

I just got it in the mail for review purposes... Once I finish up my NHL 07 review, I'll be diving into this one.

Live is also the 'cool' brand in high school and otherwise.
