The NBA Live series has had its fair share of problems since returning in 2014, but it does seem to be showing a somewhat steady improvement. The revamped gameplay helps to set itself apart well and the instant feedback is a great in-game learning tool, but the lack of any new game modes outside of Summer Circuit, or even major additions to the existing ones, prevent NBA Live 16 from being a real slam dunk.
New modes and features make NBA Live 16 a bit better than its predecessor, but the clumsy controls and unbalanced gameplay keeps greatness out of reach yet again. Simply put, if the gameplay doesn’t feel right in one mode, it doesn’t feel right in any of them, regardless of how clever they are or how good it looks. NBA Live still has a long way to go.
Needless to say, NBA Live 16 has a lot of promise but only comes in a little bit above average at its current state. Hopefully EA Sports provides gamers with an October patch or else the game will fall well below the ranks of its highly touted.
