NBA Live is a very classic and popular video and PC game series themed around NBA (National Basketball Association) basketball matches, developed by EA Canada and published by EA Sports. It’s the successor of EA’s previous game series released before 1994: NBA Playoffs and NBA Showdown. Since 1994 (until now), it releases a title with the name like NBA Live 9X, 20XX every year, and has got a large number of loyal players around the world.

Since the first game – NBA Live 95 in this series released by EA in 1994, this game has become EA’s most popular basketball game brand. It even dominated the market trend of all basketball games in the 1990s, at that time the only game on the market that could compete with NBA Live series was the “NBA 2K” series released by SEGA (which was later sold to Take-Two by SEGA).

As a competitive sports game created based on the real NBA players, with the needs of game market, EA releases the corresponding new version every year (each cover is different), and it covers almost all the popular PC and video game consoles. The game graphics is exquisite, fine and smooth, the players’ unique signature movements are very realistic, AI can even reflect the emotion of each player in the game, and EA SPORTS fully displays the Freestyle Superstars. That’s thanks to the powerful motion capture technology employed by EA SPORTS, which helps programmers make the virtual players look and act more real.

NBA Live 95 was originally designed according to the NBA Playoffs, i.e.: its blueprint is NBA Playoffs, and its successive versions include:

  • 1989: Lakers versus Celtics
  • 1991: Bulls versus Lakers
  • 1992: Team USA Basketball
  • 1992: Bulls versus Blazers
  • 1993: NBA Showdown

NBA Live 95 does not allow to add new players, but since NBA Live 96, this game module has become a major feature of the entire NBA Live series of games. NBA Live 98 is the last generation of game work developed for Sega Mega Drive (Sega Genesis, Sega MD) and SEGA Saturn (SS), also the first game that supports 3dfx Interactive company’s (acquired by Nvidia in 2000) graphics accelerator. But only the first generation of Voodoo graphics card and Voodoo Rush graphics card are officially supported.

NBA Live 2000 first introduced the NBA Live Legend All-Stars Teams, which includes some of the biggest names in the league’s 50-year history (from 1950s to 1990s). These players can be used as soon as you enter the game. But if you want them to be traded like other normal players, or join other teams, you have to unlock the game features over time. And for a variety of reasons, the roster of these stars changes frequently, such as the addition of Spud Webb, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and Tom Chambers to NBA Live 06; while Michael Jordan does not appear in some works due to copyright issues.

NBA Live 2005 introduced the free control system in the air, and added the NBA All-Star Weekend, including Rising Stars Challenge, Three-Point Contest, Slam Dunk Contest and NBA All-Star Game, as well as one-on-one hit module for two players, or one-on-one hit of three-point shot and slam dunk. The most significant feature of NBA Live 07 is the introduction of the revolutionary superstar freestyle system, while NBA Live 08 is the last game of NBA Live series on Windows platform.

Finally, it is also worth mentioning that the classic Dynasty Mode is the concentrated embodiment of the gameplay of the NBA Live series. In short, the Dynasty Mode is where the player picks a team and begins a long journey to the NBA. In this game mode, players are responsible for all links of managing an NBA team, such as operation, administration, and tournament.
