Going back even to when Michael was still in Chicago and Magic had returned to the boards, EA Sports' NBA Live series regularly has been getting the fast break and refining the game of basketball for the PlayStation (and other platforms). NBA Live 2001 starts this season with an enhanced atmosphere--new animated bench sequences, reactions, interactions, and celebrations--with all of the pro teams and arenas, including a new outdoor court. For your listening pleasure, this year's model features improved sound effects and commentary by the likes of Bob Elliott. NBA Live 2001's rewards system will unlock bonuses like new hairstyles, shoes, and player features to reward outstanding play. And, if you're missing the styles of retired stars, you still can play many of the game's greatest legends in one-on-one or five-on-five games.
