NBA Live 2006 for Nintendo GameCube
Fans of EA Sports' long-running NBA Live series can express themselves on the hardwood like never before in this cross-platform "06" edition, thanks to the introduction of the "Freestyle Superstar" feature, which expands upon earlier editions' "Freestyle Control." Gamers who play as the league's biggest talents will have access to an alternate control scheme designed to allow them to perform exceptional moves, such as deceptive passes, unorthodox shots, and powerful dunks.
Different superstar players have different move sets available, according to their playing styles and specialties, as represented by eight categories: inside scorers, outside scorers, high fliers, playmakers, power players, and shooters. A few extremely proficient players may have more than one superstar style available to them, and gamers can choose which one they'll use.
In addition to new features, NBA Live 06 is designed to deliver the action and accuracy fans of the series have come to expect. The game offers an expanded Dynasty mode that allows players to lead their favorite teams far into the future. As with earlier editions, a full NBA license allows inclusion of all the league's real-life teams, rosters, and arenas. Television-style presentation includes play-by-play and commentary from Marv Albert and Steve Kerr.
