North America Retail Box ArtUnited Kingdom Retail Box ArtA longtime front runner in graphics and playability, EA Sports has tweaked NBA Live 2000's simulation mode and artificial intelligence to create a solid, all-around roundball experience. The biggest new addition to this year's version, however, is undoubtedly the presence of Michael Jordan. Absent from NBA Live predecessors, the greatest player in NBA history makes an appearance in NBA Live 2000's "One-on-One" mode where the player challenges the legends of the NBA on an outdoor court. The new Franchise Mode adds welcome simulation depth to NBA Live 2000's quick arcade gameplay. Players assume control of a NBA team and guide them through 25 seasons; juggling rosters, scouting the draft, and number-crunching the salary cap are all requirements of the aspiring NBA general manager. Like previous versions, all NBA teams are included and rosters are updated for the 99/00 season. Furthermore, users can create their own players for the game and even scan in their own likeness with the "Face in the Game" feature. Once again, EA Sports succeeds in creating a visually stunning basketball game with exciting, intuitive gameplay. NBA Live 2000's numerous features (including three-point shootouts and Internet multiplayer) and improved realism guarantee hours of hoop enjoyment. --Doug Radcliffe
