  • Conclusion: A very simple (perhaps a bit too simple looking) meter gives feedback as to how the game is being paced, as does the pop-in coaching tips which, if followed, will lead to more success on the court.

  • Conclusion: Perhaps if you're a big fan of having the success of your scoring attempts decided randomly, or you enjoy being able to not really do much to defend against your opponent, then this game will be your cup of tea, as it seems to capture the stultifying world of basketball well, but any fan of true...

  • Conclusion: A polished game overall that falls victim to crimes of the past. Every basketball installment from EA in this next-gen era of video gaming gives up a bit of improvement with the essential roster update. However, they fail to fix the ultimate mistake of all of those games.

While some of the gameplay animations could be improved, the depth is unparalleled and the new tempo style offer up limitless ways to...
