NBA Live 14

Game Over Online
19 December 2013
  • Excerpt: The last EA Sports basketball game to ship to consoles was NBA Live 2010. That was a pretty good basketball game, but unfortunately the last one to be released by the company on current-gen consoles. A couple of years later, EA planned to reinvent the series under a new release called NBA Elite, but it was officially cancelled in 2012.

A Failed Comeback Attempt

Game Informer
20 November 2013
  • Conclusion: Concept: A hardwood comeback that fails nearly every shot attempt Graphics: From the bland character models to the listless crowd, NBA Live 14 pales in comparison to NBA 2K14 Sound: The commentary from the flat Mike Breen and exuberant Jeff Van Gundy sounds forcefully stitched together.

NBA Live 14 Review

GameSpot
20 November 2013
  • Excerpt: Basketball is a sport built around the beauty of raw athleticism. Five players glide across the court as one, shifting positions to ensure the best spacing possible against the disruptive mass of opponents trying to stifle their progress. When properly orchestrated, it's a sight to behold. Power infused with creativity, grace and tactics holding hands, concluding in a dramatic showcase with seemingly endless possibilities.
  • Pros: Great integration with real NBA games
  • Cons: Basic basketball strategies don't work, Lousy artificial intelligence, especially in Rising Star mode, Animations and physics are goofy and unpredictable, Logic problems in Rising Star mode, Lag hinders online play

NBA Live 14

IGN
19 November 2013
  • Conclusion: 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. Here’s hoping EA figures something out, otherwise this series’ comeback is going to be short-lived.
  • Pros: Big Moments and Ultimate Team modes
  • Cons: Sluggish, dunk-fest gameplay, Horrendous visuals, Generic commentary, Wasted ESPN license

  • Conclusion: The fact that NBA Live 14 was released, is one of the bigger stories of the year. However at the end of the day its a game that feels like step one in a long road back to relevance. Its a shame that the core basketball game still feels like it needs another couple of years of polish to even come close to its competitors. For now we are left with a solid lineup of features and a game of basketball thats just not worth anyones time.
