Detailed item info

Product InformationEA's acclaimed basketball franchise returns to the computer platform with updated rosters, teams, and schedules from the 1996-97 season. A key addition over previous installments is its "direct passing" feature, allowing players to throw to a specific athlete instead of a general area. Other enhancements include new user-controlled dunks and the ability to perform crossover dribbles to elude defenders. The four returning play modes are exhibition, season, playoffs, and multiplayer.

NBA Live 98 introduces two additional modes: general manager and three-point shootout. The former supports custom leagues and teams, while the latter is a long-range scoring event with a time limit. The game's presentation is similar to NBA Live 97, with motion-captured, 3D graphics and a TV-style atmosphere featuring dynamic camera angles and statistical overlays updated throughout each quarter. Veteran broadcaster Verne Lundquist provides the play-by-play commentary.
