Strategy Guide
NBA Live Slider Settings

NBA Live 08 is a mixed bag so far out of the box. It is a game that looks, sounds and feels good at times, but there are some gameplay issues that really make you scratch your head. However, you can not fault EASports for not at least giving you the user a chance to correct those problems. This year there are many different sliders that you can use to customize the gameplay in NBA Live.

Right now, after playing with the sliders some, they definitely do help the gameplay to a certain extent but there are also some issues such as loose ball logic that are probably just going to have to be dealt with for Live fans. Check out all of the slider options in our comprehensive list below:
