I prefer not having to hold the button down, so I can concentrate on making my move. I'm glad they made it more like 2K's controls in that respect.

After not playing NBA live for a couple of weeks picking it up again and finally getting some real playing time in I can see the improvements that the Devs have being making to not only the gameplay but player likenesses as well, it's the small thing that makes for an enjoyable game.

Blocks still can be a problem when going against a good shot blocker but they seem to of fixed it so non shot blockers don't look like Mutombo blocking a dunk anymore but I think I need to adjust the sliders a bit, definitely need to up the user blocks as I can't seem to stop anyone anymore however steals on Superstar are still a huge problem, you can't pass to the corners without it been a 50/50 chance of been stolen.

I'm pretty fed up with defenders who are behind the person I'm throwing the ball to somehow managing to steal the ball.

Stealing by the cpu on Superstar level is a joke, it's still a major problem. I was playing away Vs the Warriors and they had a hand on almost every pass. Even tho it sucked the amount of turnovers I was getting due to steals it's the no look steals that I hate, you draw the 2nd defender over in the post and kick out but out of nowhere the defender with his back turned jumps out and steals the ball

Cheap steals and blocks are definitely irritating.

Momentum is the other big issue for me. Players still feel a bit heavy and movement feels exaggerated. On the bright side, it does mean better foot planting and less skating, but it also doesn't feel right, or responsive enough. There aren't enough stationery catches on passes. either. Too often, a pass will force a player way out of position, even when the catch shouldn't force them to move at all (or certainly not as far as they end up moving).

Another problem iam encounting more is defensive player speed once the cpu has picked off a pass at the top of the key and blasts down court for an easy 2 while you are running back like your Jerome James. I think it finally hit home when I was the Kings and Fox couldn't even chase down Kris Middleton or get close to him

A centre that had one decent year for the SuperSonics in the mid 2000s, and then got grossly overpaid by the Knicks; just one of Isiah Thomas' less than stellar moves while he was calling the shots in New York. Among other things, James wasn't known for his speed.

I wish there was better explosion/quickness off of a foot plant on a cut or crossover etc

That too. Weaker defenders stick with you far too easily, and great ballhandlers still don't feel explosive enough.

I thought this was fine at launch, but now it's ok. I dropped down the difficulty to PRO in Live and I think the game is more true on that level. I had to boost and reduce some sliders to make games more competitive and I think I did ok. But yeah, I went back and looked at some of my launch videos and the game play was MUCH MUCH BETTER overall in terms of pace. They messed with too much.
