And while mistakes can and often are made, the NBA Live series has always remained the star of the pack, implementing the most ambitious of features first, before they are ultimately thrown to the rest of the once-yearly gang for general sporting consumption.
By now you know the drill, and know much of what to expect. Updated stats, perhaps the odd extra feature (like Madden's rewind function) and a bundle of new sweat beads running down each character's face. To the core player, little seems to change. Basketball is basketball."
