Welcome to NBA Live 10. A great looking basketball game that is fun to play and easy to get most of the achievements. Keep in mind the online servers are no longer active so you CAN NOT COMPLETE THIS GAME. Most achievements are tied to certain players doing X. Some achievements are tied to an opponent or a city. If you are not familiar with the game of basketball use THIS as a guide. Keep in mind that all but one offline achievement can be unlocked on Rookie difficulty.
Step 1: Playing games on Rookie:
First thing you'll want to do is go into My NBA Live 10 in the menu and select settings. Go into rules and turn them off. Go to game play settings and set the difficulty to rookie. Hit and slide all USER settings to the right. Select the CPU settings to the left.
Next trade the following players to the Boston Celtics:
- D. Howard (Orlando)
- D. Wade (Miami)
- K. Bryant (Lakers)
- J. Flynn (Minnesota)
- T. Parker (San Antonio)
- L. James (Cleveland)
- B. Roy (Portland)
- M. Camby (Clippers)
Now go into Play Game and select the home team as the NY Knicks. Select the away team as the Boston Celtics (this will be the team you control). Make sure you select the Celtics "St. Patrick's Day" Jersey and set the game time to 12 minute quarters. During this game you'll be focusing on the flowing achievements:
- "FROM DOWNTOWN ROOKIE"
- "FREESTYLE PASS"
- "1992 GAME 1"
- "CONNECT WITH D-WADE"
- "COME FLY WITH ME"
- "FLASH 4/12/09"
- "SPRITES DYNAMIC 10"
- "55 IN NYC"
- "ROOKIE RECORD"
- "LUCK OF THE IRISH"
You should be able to get all of those in your first game. Just use the guide for descriptions on how to get each achievement. For "DOUBLE-DOUBLE" and "MAGICAL," one of your players should get 10 rebounds. Make sure you get 10 assist with with him and 10 points to unlock those achievements.
After that game just keep playing games with the players needed for the rest of the achievements listed below. Remember that once you accomplish the action required for the achievement it will unlock. You can quit out and start the next game:
- "KOBE 81"
- "KING JAMES LOVES NEW JERSEY"
- "TP 11/05/08"
- "CAMBY 12/17/08"
- "D12 11/12/08"
- "BROY 1/24/09"
- "ADIDAS TRIPLE BLOCK"
Step 2: Play on Superstar Difficulty:
Next you going to work on "DAVID AND GOLIATH." Just use the description in the guide and you shouldn't have too much difficulty.
Step 3: Dynasty Sim and Mop Up:
Sim a Dynasty with your super team of all stars. If you make the playoffs save your game. Just keep siming games and save when you win, reload when you lose. After that any other achievements left should be done at this point.
For the most part this game is easy. "Timmy D" and "Broy 1/24/09" might give you fits but if you stick to it you'll unlock them eventually. Good Luck.
