NBA Live 10 - Wow!
I truly enjoyed this game and wished it had more dynasty mode related achievements (there's only 1). The gameplay sticks to the traditional NBA live series with very few tweaks. There's still the turbo/speed boost button, the alley oop, the quick pass via bumper, etc. Graphically the game was a slight increase over NBA Live 09.
Dynamic DNA has returned, although I didn't feel it like I did in NBA Live 09. The gameplay is very smooth for a basketball game, with only few problems timing blocks and steals.
There are a total of 7 achievements that require the EA Server be active, I've posted them below for you, everything else is pure single player bliss. You can adjust the difficulty (1 achievement requires a specific difficulty, all others can be on "Rookie"), and the game still has in game sliders so you can adjust the abilities of your team/opponent's team to work on the achievement you're after.

Now to rate the game.
Graphics - 8/10 (always room to improve, like the alley oops)
Gameplay - 8/10
Sound - 4/5 (do you even listen to the music on a basketball game).
Achievement Difficulty - 2/5 (Adidas Live run and the 3 win streak aside, these are all easy with the exception of maybe the 10 steals and 10 blocks).
Time to 100% - 10-15 hours if you are able to boost the Adidas game, otherwise longer.
