"I found the controls to be very unresponsive and awkward. Trying to take the ball from the other team has always proved a problem for me, maybe I'm doing something wrong but I always end up fouling them, no matter what I do. Maybe some innovation on that part might have made it much better for me and maybe given it a lead over 2K9, but its pointless speculating now.
Another year and the NBA Live series seem to be the weaker of the 2. It has nothing that yells out great gameplay and instead is full of similar modes and awkward controls. One for the fans maybe, but I'm not sure how much when compared to 2K9."
