NBA Live 14 is also available on PS4.
Even 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.
For my interest in something to be increased, it has to be entertaining. This is where NBA Live 14 ultimately falls short for me.
Despite 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.
Yes, it is playable. And some dribbling looks decent. But if you're looking for the next generation of basketball, this is not it.
NBA Live 14 is one of the worst sports games I played in years. It's incredible that the game shares the same engine with FIFA 14 and Madden 25, because of it's choppy gameplay, poor graphics and the lack of any ideas. 2K can sleep well.
It's disappointing and hard to fathom that, given how much was riding on the game, EA could have dropped the ball so completely.
Online play is straight-up garbage.
