NBA Live 97 Retrospective


Depending on which platform you were playing it on, NBA Live 97 was either a step up from NBA Live 96, or more of the same. If you were playing the game on the 16-bit consoles, you'd notice a couple of new features and some new animations, but it was still quite similar to its predecessor. On PC and PlayStation, however, we saw a far more significant improvement. It wasn't as big of a jump as NBA Showdown to NBA Live 95 was, but it was still noticeable, especially when it came to graphics. Let's take a look back at the game that described itself as the "soul of hoops", and proudly announced that it featured Shaq.

Check out an updated retrospective of the game with menus that are PURE 90s!
