Everything you could expect from Wii, really. They should've gone past the expected though, and added some new and innovative features that would draw people's attention and get even non-sports fans to become interested. But, that's just my thoughts and what the Wii was completely based on in the first place. Only, the Wii was to attract non-gamers. But whatever, this post isn't going to change anything. I was just stating some good advice. My mistake.

Yeah well, EA Sports has that problem. Their yearly additions in each game just aren't that different (except rosters, draft picks etc). They usually only have a couple of new features, with none of their past features updated. Having motion sensor controls and online is a start though.

They're going to have a dunk contest mode. You do motions and turn them into dunks. Like swing the wiimote bewteen your legs and he'll put the ball between his legs. Swing it behind your head, he'll do a tomahawk. THAT WILL BE AWESOME.

It would be awesome if they had the skills challenge in the allstar weekend.

Yea, that would be good, Wii player. In the other NBA Lives they didn't have that.
