Dec 10, 2013Even without resorting the unforgiving comparison with NBA 2K14 that is enough to raise doubts on possible purchases, NBA Live 14 has many problems on its own, from the AI to the animations and so on. It could be the start of a new course for the EA Sports' basketball series, but it needs some serious overhaul.
Dec 12, 2013Despite the four-year break from NBA Live 10, the Electronic Arts basketball series is back in late 2013 with an awful new episode. Ugly to see and hear and flawed in artificial intelligence and gameplay, NBA Live 14 finds some interesting elements only in Scenario Mode and Ultimate Team, but NBA 2K14 does much more ten times better and even if EA Tiburon has promised patches and updates, the feeling is that the NBA Live series is now dead and buried.
Nov 29, 2013NBA Live 14 is a disappointment coming from an NBA Live 10 fan. The best part of the game is clearly the dribble mechanics. You can tell that the developers spent a lot of time in that area to build a solid foundation. However, passing and rebounding is frustrating.
Passing is not as fluid as it should be and it makes fast breaks in the game almost impossible to pull off. User/AI rebounding is difficult. Some plays don't even jump when you hit the "Y" button and not many of the AI box out.
NBA Live 14 does have a lot of nice features with dynasty mode, Ultimate Team mode and NBA Live seasons. However, online play was not as fluid as I expected after playing other EA SPORTS games like Madden and Need for Speed on Xbox One. I played a couple of games that were laggy and threw off the shooting mechanics. Also, I was very disappointing that Online Team Play was left out of this years game. I hope that makes a return in Live 15.
Overall, the game isn't as enjoyable as I thought it would be. However, the developers did say they have the ability to patch in new animations and tweak the graphics with patches. I am interested to see how the game progresses and improves down the line.… Expand
Nov 19, 2013I was impatient for the release of this game,
After the first minutes of play I decided to return it. It felt like I was playing a ps2 game, with some ps3 graphics and a very few ps4 details, this is a lack of respect to nba live fans.
AI was weird, some player running continuously out of the field, pg playing as PF and C playing as SF or PG, there was a mess over there.
This game needs a couple of years of development in order to reach a decent level.
Comparing with 2k14, well there´s no comparison. No need to continue with this.. I just hope nba live survives so it can give us a good nextgen game in a couple of years, until then 2k seems untouchable
