History

The game is descended from the NBA PLAYOFFS series, starting with Lakers vs. Celtics, released first in 1989 for MS-DOS-compatible PCs and later adapted for consoles in 1990 for the Sega Mega Drive/Sega Genesis. This game was played from a horizontal view (while later versions moved to an isometric view before ultimately moving to 3D on newer consoles). The game was one of the first to feature an NBA license, containing both real NBA teams and player likenesses and signature moves. For example, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's goggles are clearly visible, and Michael Jordan's "Air Reverse Layup" is animated with very high accuracy. Detailed player numbers were also visible. The game featured only eight of the sixteen teams that made the NBA playoffs that year, as well as both NBA All-Star teams. Lakers versus Celtics was a 1988 video game that was avaiable for Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo game consoles, as well as for computers. ...

The next game in the series was Bulls vs. Lakers, released in 1991, followed by Bulls vs. Blazers in 1992.

Each revision added more teams and players, as well as more signature moves. The series also included an Olympic basketball game, Team USA Basketball (1992) which uses the same engine. The final game in the series was NBA Showdown 94 for SNES before the transition to the NBA Live series.

NBA Live 2007 - Hoopedia (745 words)
Originally, the NBA Live series was released for the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis and SNES with NBA Live 1995.
The former, however, returned in NBA Live 2000, which received a special mention in the game cover (in NBA Live 96, Jordan and Barkley, as well as Larry Bird, Magic Johnson and other legends could be unlocked simply by giving that name to a created player).
NBA Live 07 is for the Playstation 2, the Playstation Portable, the Xbox, and also the 360.
NBA Live 08 (949 words)
NBA Live 06 for the Xbox 360 was very light on game modes, had frame rate and animation issues and offered weak support for online play.
Those who know the NBA inside out probably won’t need this feature as they already know most players’ strengths and weaknesses but for those with only an occasional interest in the sport, the feature is a great way of getting to know what the players in their team are capable of.
NBA Live 08 plays a solid game of basketball but there are a few issues that prevent the game from being a great one.
