Default NBA Live For Nintendo Wii (Screens/Info)

I know there's a lotta Live ****** here but I'm just kinda interested to see how a basketball game on Wii shapes out. Here's some screens from it, including how the Wii controller is used to play. Graphically the game honestly looks worse than PS2 did, but most Wii players are after innovation not graphics:

So you don't equate swatting yoru controller for blocks and using shooting motions for shots with advanced realism?

no, I equate the following things with advanced realism:

1. No balls going through backboard.
2. No 3-point chucking by point guard
3. No exaggerated superstar sh&t.
4. No bugs that ruin gameplay

i just dont like it...its my preference...I like the Wii im gonna buy it when MArio comes out buts its not me...

I just cant see the gameplay being as deep as the game I play now 2k7 with motion sensored controls...plus the graphics are a downer...Its just me but I dont think shooting like that will really feel like a jumper and will become annoying...

If I want to really feel like im playing ball, i will go outside and play basketball...if I want an NBA simulation then I'll fire up my 360 and play 2k7(i like Sports games better on it then PS3)

then you gotta realize its Live and that motion sensing is probably gonna be easily exploited

I'm not one to give a **** about graphics.... but those remind me of Tony Hawk 2 for Playstation (no, not PS2).

Might be fun with those controls though. I won't get it myself, though I'll probably play it at a friends house sometime.

The Graphics look better than I thought they were going to be. It would take awhile to get use to those controls. I doubt that game will be very good though, plus it's live so how good can it get any ways.

That's fine, but you said you wanted advanced realism in your first post. Now in your second you say you'll go outside and play if you want that. My point is you're contradicting yourself with those statements when you consider the Wii's controls.

Live sucks anyways.

I want it as real as possible without motion sensing, or anything bringing my body into the game...I couldnt even stand the free throws on PS3...but I did contradict myself

I just want a slightly realistic game.

Has anyone played live and....

Jason Kidd is taking 29 shots with carter,Jefferson, in the lineup.

No sets, any teams PG shoots a 3 even when they are bad at it.
