      This game is playable and fun. Finally NBA live has returned swinging. The one mode is what makes this game shine with the challenges and crates to open. It seems like even if u lose with random players online or win with friends that the game is fun. The animations are better than in past time NBA live games and the graphics have improved. I will say that it's not a 5 because still some problems exist in live like the collisions between players in air and how some animations are still a bit clumsy and not fluid. Also some player models and face scans are trash and do the NBA players no justice like Kwahi Leonard. I don't even know who they were trying to make but it wasn't kwahi at all. Some random black guy. Lol. The speed of the game is a little slower and the hairstyles are still limited and not so great. Body types could be better and when u import a face scan the options are not enough to help with some issues with blemishes and realism. The overall game is great though and for the price I can't say it isn't worth it if u bought it when price was lowered during the preorder time frame. I support live so that they can start competing and making great basketball games again.

      playing a basketball game. i honestly did not expect to sit down and play for 6 hours (whoa, time goes by when you're having fun) i was honestly just going to pick this game up... play a few ranked matches... and throw it aside... boy, was i wrong. playing 5 on 5 online is a BLAST . i did a facial scan... which made it even more fun . it reminded me of being out on an actual court playing a pick up game of basketball. the facial scan is done really well, and adds something very special to the game ranked matches are simple... and straight to the point. just like on madden. i love the gameplay. i had been buying nba 2k for the last few years... and to say it's a bad game... would be a lie. but to say it's a good game... would also be a lie NBA Live is far from perfect... but it's the most fun I've had with a basketball game in years. (maybe since the 90s)

      This game, in my opinion is more faithful to the real feel of basketball than NBA 2k18. Player movement just feels tighter in this game, especially on the defensive end. It's the closest to an NBA player you can get to being one. Unlike 2k, the players, especially superstars are capable of making NBA caliber plays like hitting shots in the oppositions face and finishing contested drives to the hoop. In 2k it feels near impossible to sink a simple shot with someone just in you vicinity. On the court, the game is superior to me. The other modes like franchise are lacking compared to 2k though. They just seem added in and not very well fleshed out. Also, unfortunately it doesn't have the following 2k does, so the online options for competition are lacking. It's a franchise going in the right direction and for the right price, $20, it's a good alternative to the competition. If it keeps trending upward it could dethrone 2k.

      I'm enjoying this game, I have normally been a 2k guy, and I will be playing NBA 2k18 later on, I wanted to give this one a shot and i've been enjoying it so far. The animations can look a little jarring at times, very stiff, the gameplay itself is very fun. Controls are relatively simple, and the presentation Is pretty good, with halftime show and ending with ESPN highlights. I also love the different atmospheres, the difference between regular season crowd noise and playoffs is considerably different and sounds great as well. Haven't dived into the franchise mode, but it seems simple from my one season sim. Still, if you want an alternative to 2k, this is a good one to try.

      Live 18 is much better than I anticipated

      I bought both Live 18 and 2k18 on launch day and I've been pleasantly surprised with how much fun I've been having with Live. NBA Live 18 is vast improvement over Live 16 and EA's version of a career mode has been pretty fun to play so far. The Pro-Am and Streets Circuits are also fun to play and definitely helps Live standalone as a solid basketball entry. Compared to NBA 2k18, many of the game modes in Live 18 such as Franchise mode are severely lacking in content depth, which was a big concern for me. Overall though, the game is fun to play and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for solid basketball game to pick up and play.

      I grew up playing the EA sports game and have always been a fan of Live over 2K. I feel the game play is a little more fluid on 2k but the overall graphics and skill sets are better on Live. The problem with this game is that they are trying to play catch up to 2K instead of doing what is best for them and their series. If they focus on the game play and fluid movements through out the game it would be even better. the one complaint I have is that on a fast break when you through the long pass the players do not keep moving in motion and instead stops and wait for the ball. this really hurts gameplay.

      This was the only way I could send pics to Best Buy about my order. I purchased this game for my 10 year old nephew's birthday and I was quite embarrassed when my sister sent me these pictures. It looks like someone may have tried to open it and it was damaged. The game is working fine but again this was a birthday present and was not at all presentable. I purchased a lot of family gifts from Best Buy and this is the first issue I have had regarding this matter.

      Gameplay could be better

      I enjoy how difficult the game is at times. It can be a little over the top at the highest difficulty though. Making full court shots has happened for the computer more than once on buzzer beaters. Gameplay is a little robotic and not free form. Sometimes the player is trying to play defense with his back to the opposing player. Makes it hard to guard someone when your team can't even turn around. The analog stick makes them move sluggish sometimes and becomes frustrating. Fun game though if you can stand that.
