3.0 out of 5 stars NBA Live is a Dribble In the Right Direction, but is Still Way Behind the Competition, November 30, 2013
This review is from: NBA Live 14 - Xbox One (Video Game)
NBA Live 14 has a long ways to go before it can give real competition to the other guy, but I do see potential in the foundation of this game.

Game Play:
The Good- The dribbling system seems very smooth and realistic. You can really tell a lot of effort was put into this part of the game to set up the future additions to game play.

The Bad- To many times it feels like I'm helpless when playing the game I don't know how each player shoots, and so I have missed so many shoots, and easy lay ups it starts to frustrate me as I try and enjoy the game. Free Throws, and Jump Shoots both have the same problem. You can't tell when a shoot looks good, or if it's bad. I feel like I'm throwing up prayers every time I take a shot.

Presentation:
The Good- This other thing I liked about the game that stood out to me was the nice halftime show, and commentary. Both of these seem to be some of the best I can remember in any sports game I have played.

The Bad- The halftime presentation also has a downfall. It's to long and drags the game out a little bit to much, Main menus are not bad but seem hard to read, and follow, but all in all I give this part of the game a thumbs up.

Graphics:
This part of the game was very disappointing to me, as it seem to be no upgrade what you would have seen in NBA Live 10 which I still have and play now and then still, so if this is the only reason why you buy the games then you might want to rethink...

You can tell this game has issues, and needs work, but if you want to experience the best ball handling game out there you need to at least give it a try, but if you can see the big picture, and can have an open mind you can see where this game can go.
Heck if the game had a shoot meter, and or a tutorial explaining how to shoot it would improve the game leaps and bounds!
