I just got the game and I am new to this site. I haven't played it yet, but I will post my impressions soon.
Andrew, can you tell me what is a patch and how to use it? I made a thread and it is under the name-LaughOutLoudist. Just answer it there.

Thanks for your help

i just played my second online versus game and dominated both until a about a minute left in both when my opponets quit and i couldn't do anything about it and everything i had done didn't matter. I dissapointed that this wasn't fixed but i really happy with everything else. I think that dynamic season is probally what i am most excited about. I'll porbally spend most of my time here once the season starts. I already played game 1 of the eastern conference finals against the magic and i had the same problems as the real cavs. Basicly i could focus on stopping the quards or Howard but not both. I lost by over 20 :oops: Playing in a play now game as the cavs vs orlando i did alot better and lost in OT 114 to 109. The game is a huge improvement though from live 09 and i though 09 was pretty good too.

It seems to be a fair bit more difficult than the one I previously played (08). I really have to work for my shots and do a lot more jump shooting in this one, but in the same token, it seems to reward you for making good plays. I'm really impressed with it so far.

After playing Nba 2k10 i didn't feel the excitement like i felt when i played 2k9. I see everyone saying live 10 has really stepped up this year and it does look very good. Don't get me wrong 2k10 is a great game but it looks like i might have to get live 10.

It's definitely refreshing. I've been playing 2k the last two years but when I popped in 2k9 a couple of weeks ago I couln't stand it any more.
In Live, you won't find yourself abusing the pick and roll system to the fullest and get a huge dunk every play down the court, neither will you see the CPU throw ridiculous passes into the paint for an undefendable bucket.

I've been enjoying the hell out of Live 10 so far.

So far, I'd say that NBA Live 10 delivers a very satisfying gameplay experience on the whole, though the issues with the simulated stats in Dynasty Mode have me a little worried about the single player replay value. However, I'll have to wait until I've seen Dynamic Season in action before I completely make up my mind on that, it might be a satisfactory substitute for Dynasty Mode for me until next year.

I don't have any problems with the simulated stats. Okay, it's just 10 games into the season but Lebron averages 39 ppg, rebound leaders have 12-13 rpg and the assist leaders have about 12 apg

I play on the ps3 and I'm now 20 games into my dynasty. The scoring has dropped 4-5 points but it seems rebounds and assists will stay like that

I also play on PS3. I simmed through a season including offseason. The Cavaliers won the championship over the Lakers. The teams in the playoffs were realistic (accept for memphis making it over denver) but the teams seeding was off. The West all star game selections was very realistic the East was terrible though with Lebron and wade being the only to that would of been there for sure. In the Offseason the only major player not to resign with their team was Chris Bosh (sorry New York). The draft was ok player sizes were better but their were still players looking the same or maybe different hair color. The stats were good as far as how many points rebounds ect the leader averaged but The wrong players were leading the leauge. Rip Hamilton is dominating dynasty mode just like last year. This year he is even better winning MVP. (Pau Gasol finished 2nd for MVP and Kobe finished 4th.)

Have you had a glance through each team's stats? The league leaders don't necessarily look too bad, but there are issues with players like Dwight Howard only scoring 8 ppg and starters not getting enough minutes.

After playing live 10 since release day on ps3, I'd have to say the honeymoon is definitely over. I was loving it at first playing on allstar 12 min quarters. Now I'm finding hard to even finish a game sometimes because of the ridiculous amounts of steals and putback dunks by the cpu. This is with the cpu steal and interception slider turned all the way down. I swear at times its like you can't even dribble the ball against certain players without it resulting in a strip. I'm not tryin to do And1 mixtape moves either just simply dribbling the ball. I'm really trying my hardest to enjoy this game because it has loads of potential, so I'm gonna play around with some player/slider editing for my dynasty rosters and see what happens. If that combined with the upcoming patch doesn't fix things then, back to gamestop it is for live 10. I'm downloading 2k10 for pc to have a backup option

I've had the same problem it seems like when the cpu starts playing good and goes on a run you can't stop it. If you try to dribble past the 3 point line it will get stripped out of your hands no matter who you or the defender is. If you take a jumpshot your going to miss it because you don't have any momentum.

Yeah the cpu momentum was certainly an issue too, but i dropped the shooting sliders for both human and cpu and it seems to cut down on the extent of the runs a little bit, but this thing with the steals is really starting to bug me. At first i was thinkin, "ok maybe i just suck right now", but after playing it non stop im pretty sure this is just an issue with the game. Granted i am playing with the Knicks but there is no way guys should be getting ripped 4 out of 10 times down the floor.

After reading very briefly on various sites, it seems as though NBA Live is actually good this year compared to 2k10, where I have read that 2k is pretty much the same game whereas Live has really worked on improving itself compared to their last year's product.

Ok so question is, after switching to 2k since 07, is it time to go back to Live?

note I have not done any serious in depth reading (havn't even really read this thread tbh :lol:) about either of the two games, just some light skimming through, so I'm sure someone on here can give me a good explanation of which is better to help me make a choice on which one to buy.

I've only played live but I couldn't say 2k is the same game a new feature was added in my player mode or something like that but then live has dynamic season. I can't say which one is better because i haven't really played 2k but i hope this helps a little.

I own both, Live 10 on Ps3 and 2k10 on the pc, and as you can see from my comment above , live was alot of fun at first because it was a breath of fresh air initially. After playing more though, a lot of underlying issues started to appear, such as unstoppable cpu scoring runs on allstar and superstar levels(ie shooting 35% through the first 3 quarters then shooting 75% in the 4th). Way too many steals, blocks and offensive rebounds also by the cpu. Unbalanced foul calls also going in favor of the cpu(scheduled to be fixed in the november patch btw). I know it all sounds bad but this game really does have a lot of potential. I haven't tried this yet but people are saying that they are having better games on PRO level, with adjusted sliders of course.

In comparison to 2k, Live plays much, much smoother. 2k is still a little herky, jerky in my opinion and the iso motion dribbling is far inferior to the right stick dribbling in Live. 2k has the advantage in graphics, animations and presentation. the association mode still has the upper hand over Live's franchise mode, simply because Live's sim engine is STILL broken after all these years. I cant really comment on 2k's Online capabilities because, well, the pc version's seem to be broken LOL. Live has the Dynamic season feature which seems like a cool concept but since the season hasnt started, we dont know yet. I havent tried 2k's My Player mode on pc yet because i keep reading that there is just too many bugs.

I know this is a little all over the place, but its late and i have been staring at computer screens all day at work LOL. I hope it helps though. On a side note 20 bucks for 2k10 is still a great price for a game that is just as fun as last years version. And once this great community digs its claws into it im sure we can look foward to some great mods :headbang:

Edit: One thing i forgot to add about 2k10 is, the backdoor passes to the paint still seems to be an issue unfortunately. Im gonna play around with some sliders and see what happens.

I played the demo and it just felt... off. I liked the last two Lives games. Not as much as 2K, but they were fun and that control/gameplay system had its place. Taking away the beloved dunk/layup button was the first disappointment. Also, it may just be me, but the court seemed way too small. It felt like I was getting up the court in 2 seconds time. Maybe I'm just used to My Player.

Additionally, the graphics looked horrible. The lighting effects seemed about three times too intense, and Dwight Howard among others looked bizarre. Worst looking Live of this generation in my opinion.

I only played one game though. Are these problems in the final version? Am I totally biased?

There are some weird issues with lighting, but on the whole I wouldn't say the graphics of NBA Live 10 are horrible. However, as always I have to offer up the disclaimer than I am not the harshest critic when it comes to graphics. I do think that the final version is more impressive than the demo, the return to a single shot button is something I got used to fairly quickly as well.

It annoys me how the computer has a freakish ability of getting to loose balls... and being blocked 3 times in a row in the paint by Rudy Gay seems a bit unrealistic, but I really like the game. Much better than 08 as far as game play... however, I think 06 is still my favourite

i am really amazed how the ps3 full version is! the only thing i noticed so far is the godlike mode of some superstars particularly kobe and Lebron playing offline at least. and the off-ball control can be easily abused online imho. nevertheless, 5 stars for EA nba live 10!

With 2K10 being a fucking joke, I may have to rent this one. The total lack of features is tough to overlook though.

As I've said before, I feel NBA Live 10 delivers an enjoyable experience from a gameplay perspective and with the fixes in the new update that experience should be further enhanced (I haven't given it a try as yet). The Dynasty Mode issues remain the biggest downer for me, I was hoping that they could be addressed this year but it'll probably have to wait for NBA Live 11. Hopefully Dynamic Season will prove to be a suitable alternative for those of us who get geeky about realistic stats and the like, though I'll miss not being able to make my own trades so I'll probably end up with a Dynasty on the side. I'll certainly give it a try.

Hey NbA LIVE 2010 is Back.................Im talking I have been playing this game for about 16 hours straight. If its in the game, believe me it's in NBA live.
I been playing some of my buddies online and xbox live is awesome. Im talking no lag whatever. This game is so fun and a true sim. It runs smooth, I can't believe that Im playing it on the xbox 360. Im sitting here typing this and while listending to espn sports update on NBA Live 2010.........

Comparion Nba Live to Nba 2k----I'll take Live because of the online capabilities....2k online is very laggy. However what a great year for basket games. This is going to be a very fun year.........

Wow !

Never thought id be saying this about nba Live ever again but they really stepped up there game this year. Ok its not perfect and ive seen lots of bugs today that have being mentioned on this forum but still...

After buying nba live since 95 i gave up on it in 2008 and switched to 2k which is still the game to beat imo but ive being playing 2k10 since the release date and with all the bugs and all it still feels like the same game as last year with the addition of "My Player"

One this i really like about live this year is the play calling and the way the AI players work off the ball and setting screens to get open, its nice to see a set play run smoothly and the guy who is supposed to get the ball GETS it without his defender running straight through defenders to close out.

Quick question tho is it not possible to view boxscores from the other games played in Dynasty mode? other than you own ?

I think we can still cycle through other team's boxscores in Dynasty Mode, though I could be wrong.

Foul calls do seem to be especially generous in favour of the CPU this year, more so following the patch in my opinion.

Not really. Raising the foul sliders will get you some more free throws, but of course it will also increase the CPU's chances of getting to the line too.

Finally got around to renting this and its frustrating. As a whole, I think the gameplay is superior to 2K10's. Its more realistic, deeper (strategy is not limited to taking it in every time) and overall more fun to play. That makes it such a shame that you can't update your rosters without dynamic DNA, the sim stats are fucked and the graphics are terrible. If they only had the graphics and sim engine from 09, I would consider converting. Unfortunately, despite the slightly better gameplay, the lack of polish in Live '10 prevents me from playing it. Such a shame.

I guess I'm not as harsh a critic when it comes to graphics, but I don't see what's so terrible about them. The Dynasty issues definitely kill the offline replay value though.

I don't see anything wrong with the graphics either, but then again it's the first NBA game I've played since Live 99. So anything would look good to me :mrgreen:

Well, the first match I played, I noticed that players are making VERY tough shots easily, and keep missing easy buckets! And in Dynasty, sometimes the sim scores are like 143-135 and some are like 55-66

Are you playing with the official updates? I still feel the tough shot/easy shot issues were exacerbated by the updates, the sim engine unfortunately needs a lot of work as well.

The down side to this is that you don't have rookies like Sundiata Gaines or Garrett Temple in the game.

I noticed the shot issues too. LaMarcus Aldridge's mid-range jumper is absolutely unstoppable (went 14-15 with him in an online match. Dwyane Wade's 2K8 fadeaway revisited) while I had less than a quarter of my points in the paint. Its a breath of fresh air from 2K10, where 90% of offensive possessions are driving to the hoop, but it could use some work.

The graphics overall are a huge step down from even Live 08. I really don't know what they were thinking with the cartoonish character faces and overuse of lighting (reminds of of some later PS1 games). The cartoonish looks of guys like Pau and Oden among many others is fairly distracting. Not a deal-breaker, but considering how realistic 2k10 looks (I've had several people ask if there was a real game happening), this just makes me feel like I'm playing a Wii game or something.

Couldn't be bothered to update the rosters myself. Its time consuming, and the player ratings are off. With the excessive (and ineffective) amount of ratings to tweak, its just not worth the time. The fact that you can't edit/download draft classes is another major knock on Live.

If they can add change-able draft classes, a 2k Share type system accessible to all, bring back the 06-09 graphics and hammer out the kinks in the gameplay, I'll likely be converting back to Live, considering 2K's rapid decline in the past two years,

Cartoonish faces? I'm afraid I have to disagree there but then again I feel that cartoonish is an overused word when describing sports games graphics. 2K10 has some faces that aren't quite right either, Operation Sports did a pretty good comparison when the games came out. For the most part I don't have too many problems with the lighting but there are some weird effects with the lighting when using the free cam in Instant Replay.

If you want them in the game so bad you can always add them using the create a player feature. Most rookies are kind of generic looking anyway.

And on the graphics, when I first got the game and played it on my the our big TV, everyone thought I was watching a real game. :wink:
