Just download the patch tonight……….don’t notice much of a difference other than the new all star court and jerseys. Gameplay is still horrible and not smooth at all, it reminds me of the 90s version of Live on the original Playstation where the gameplay was so “patchy”. The ball dribbling in the game so horrendous and isn’t “smooth” like it’s claimed to be. In order to do the ISO moves or whatever they are called in Live, you have to hold down the turbo button to make a move and get past the defender and half the time, another defender slides over from 10 feet away and stops you. I, along with many others I’m sure, had VERY HIGH hopes for the next generation version of Live especially when the initial trailer was released. But wow have I been disappointed, I sure it’s either too late to salvage Live 14 but they need to make vast improvements to Live 15 or they will lose a lot of business. Because I for am regret buying it and although I know they claim they were rushed to release, they should of pushed back the release date and got things right. In my opinion, the gameplay needs to go back to Live 10 and be smooth and make some improvements from there with lighting and player scans and such. As I’ve said before, bring back the “edit player”, bring back other key essentials that always made Live a success. I’m letting Love 14 slide, not fully willingly though, but if Live 15 isn’t “stepped up” then I’ll be done with Live in general and I’ve been playing for 20 years

Wow, this is sad to hear! I guess it is all about the money, customers come last. I’m glad I am stick with PC and NBA 2K11, the best basketball videogame ever.
