    The problem is justifying an NBA Live 14 purchase when NBA 2K14 is on store shelves. As a newbie, I had fun with NBA 2k14, but I didn’t have nearly as much fun with NBA Live 14.

    NBA Live 14 delivers an unambitious, sporadically exciting basketball simulation held back by its slavish adherence to replicating the televised game.

    After such a long absence, this is a disappointing effort to say the least. EA has promised that they will remedy many of the predominately visual issues that plague it, but until that or a drastic price drop occurs, there’s simply no reason to own NBA Live 14 with NBA 2K14 in existence.

    NBA Live’s flaccid return is made all the more disappointing because we waited three years for it. After all that time, NBA Live 14 in no way advances the basketball sim genre and, worse, leaves little to be optimistic about for next year.

    There's simply nothing here to justify you buying it ahead of 2K's b-ball champ. [Jan 2014, p.84]

    The on-court action is so sloppy and unsatisfying that even rubbing defeat in Carmelo Anthony's face loses its appeal. NBA Live needs serious work in just about every aspect in order to raise its game to a respectable level.

    This game is not very much fun in any facet of its execution, and the supporting modes don't make the crappy basketball-playing any better.

    This absolute masterpiece is one of the best recreations of a basketball that I have ever witnessed. Every single little detail is perfect toThis absolute masterpiece is one of the best recreations of a basketball that I have ever witnessed. Every single little detail is perfect to reward you with a grand experience that will not be outdone easily. It outclasses NBA 2K14 with ease beautifully constructed mechanics, extreme attention to detail and an overall feel. On the hardest difficulty, it reminds me of the days of my hero Magic Johnson slugging it out on the court and shooting some truly incredible. If Magic Johnson was a game it would definitely be this one. A close contender for game of the year and most definitely Sport Simulation game of the year. Expand

    This game is garbage. EA at it's best, no effort making this game, just finish it fast and sell to the parents who are buying this game forThis game is garbage. EA at it's best, no effort making this game, just finish it fast and sell to the parents who are buying this game for their kids, because none of gamers will buy this garbage itself.
    Ugly graphics. Ehm...EA did you know that it's a next gen game? Looks like you don't. Just stopo releasing such garbage.
