    This game looks really great. I think EA Sports really did justice with the controls in the Wii. It has online gaming and tournament.

    Who is getting it too? Good Luck

    Tomorrow is 10/2/2007 not 8/2/2007 sorry for my mistake (TYPO)

    Alright, I can not wait for this game.
    I love sports games and NBA is no exception.

    Might have to wait a bit to rent it, as I am tight on the cash money.

    I have a feeling its going to be bad for the wii...don't get me wrong I love basketball games, been playing since NBA Live 2000 on N64 but there hasn't been much improvement in the live series, the 2k series is far ahead in basketball if your looking for a good basketball simulation, live is more arcade style. It'll be interesting to see how this one turns out so I'll probably rent it before buying it but please let us all know how it is.

    Yeah I got the game and it is horrible. It looks great but that's about it. You have no control over dribble moves, shooting isn't that responsive, and there is no turbo. You can't edit players ratings and worst of all, they got rid of dynasty mode. You don't control All-Star and Superstar things (passer, shooter, outside scorer, blocker) anymore either. I don't know if it is any better on Play Station 2 but the only upside to the Wii version is that you'll be able to play other people online for free. I've been buying NBA Live since NBA Live 200 and I'm probably going to return this one and buy NBA2k8

    I have and i am disappointed...i haven't tried it online and that is the only way i will possibly be able to salvage any game play out of it...no dynasty mode glad to see that EA sports is thinking about its fans ha...this just ended up being a 50 dollar rental for me. Worst thing is i picked it up because different sites have released screens for the wii and they show it having a dynasty mode so i feel very ripped off right now.

    Is this game really that bad. I have someone picking it up for me right now. Is the actual gameplay bad or is it the fact that there is no dynisty which you guys dont like? Also is there a season mode?

    Also someone said they are going to return it because they don't like it. How can you return it if you have already opened it?
