My roommates want it - I couldn't care less if I had to.
The thing my roommate really wants though is the expansion franchise feature - name your team and city, expansion draft and all that crap like in NBA Live 2000 for the PS1. That way his team of legend, the Greenwich Sucka MCs can live on.
Oh, and if it plays well, so much the better.
Thanks in advance.

NBA Live 2004 has awesome gameplay, IMO. I don't think it has the "make your own expansion franchise" feature, though. In fact, now that I think about it, I don't remember anyone on GameFAQs.com doing a "look at my franchise" thread using a made-up team.
I know ESPN Gamer gave NBA Live 2004 it's highest grade for gameplay so far, though. And it does have the new Charlotte franchise that starts playing next year, for an expansion team. It also has all kinds of real-life shoes in its Create-a-Player mode, so you can give your boy Air Jordans, AI's Reeboks, or what have you. That is a pretty deep feature.

It's looks and sound great. It has a variety of gameplay...(motorcycle driving, shooting, stealth. But I can't stand the 3rd person view while driving, so I don't really plan getting it...Mind you I only played the demo.
