All-new 10-man Freestyle implementation enhances individual player movements and floor spacing, putting you right in the middle of the action for the most realistic simulation ever created. Enhanced player graphics vividly reproduce each NBA player with the most realistic faces, hairstyles, jerseys, and shoes ever produced. A comprehensive offering of incredibly deep game modes, like the Dynasty Mode, put you in the middle of the action like never before. Levitate and create with NBA LIVE 2005.

Problems

VP6 Videos

NBA Live 2005 uses the VP6 video codec, common in Electronic Arts' titles, causing it's videos to have vertical line artifacts and other glitches on NVIDIA graphics cards. The Software Render will display VP6 video correctly, but is typically too slow. Prior to 4.0-593 video output was completely scrambled, refer issue 5046. Rendering improved with 4.0-593 but a variety of glitches remain, refer issue 7193. VP6 rendering also reacts poorly to the Force Texture Filtering enhancements (and Anisotropic Filtering on NVIDIA), causing further scrambling.
