NBA Live 18 

 

NBA Live 18 comes in a distant second this year. If you are looking for a new basketball video game this year then check out NBA 2K18. It is much better than NBA Live 18. The horrendous failures of the PR and Marketing firm for EA Sports continue on this year. I suppose they do not want any sales from Family Friendly Gaming Universe at all.

The presentation in NBA Live 18 is sub-par for a modern basketball video game. The music is offensive, and so are the names of some of the people who sing these songs. How did the ESRB miss that? Is this more evidence of the corruption accusation against the ESRB? You can draw your own conclusion to that question.

I ran into strange glitches while playing NBA Live 18. Many of the menu screens are horrible to navigate. The One mode is great if you want to take your own player and player in the league and on the street. The NBA Live series still does not have good retro teams to play. When will EA Sports catch up? The default visual view is horrible, and the annoying momentum meter continues to break this franchise.

The good news is the visuals can be set to a more intelligent view in NBA Live 18. The music can be turned off - which silences the movies too. I did not find a way to skip those movies. So you are forced to watch them. Graphically NBA Live 18 looks pretty good. The announcers are okay.

I wanted to like NBA Live 18 so much. It has decent basketball action. The AI makes no sense at times. The same goes for which shots will sink and which ones will miss. There is plenty of customization in NBA Live 18. I am thankful Family Friendly Gaming purchased NBA Live 18 on Black Friday 2017. This basketball game is worth twenty dollars brand new in my opinion. I am being very generous too. I still like NBA 2K18 better than NBA Live 18. That is the general opinion here at FFG.
