NBA Live 13 Impressions E3 2012 - GamerFitNation

GamerFitNation: Last year was a dark time for the EA Sports NBA Live franchise. The game was under a lot of full court pressure from the powerhouse that is NBA 2K and it collapsed under said pressure by not even making it to the retail market. The only thing that I can say is that by being pushed so far can only make a game that much better. That is the case with NBA Live 13. In the 15min presentation of the game that we were shown during E3 2012, I learned many things. To be brief for this preview, I will tell you a couple of the things that I learned.

If you had to pick right now would it be Live or 2K? 2K12 was the best basketball game to date imo.

@NYC - I agree, the fiasco that was Elite has me worried. No EA game made me switch over to 2k and I don't see myself going back...

NYC_Gamer2128d ago

I don't believe EA can compete with 2K on the level of gameplay....Live always felt too much like an arcade b-ball game with robotic movement and ugly character models......

Yeah, but 2K basketball games have gotten progressively worst over the years. 2k9 was probably their best game. They've since screwed themselves over.

EA should have made the Live 13 reveal public instead of hiding it behind closed doors....That shows EA didn't have much faith in the early build since it was shown in secret...

2k is garbage now Online servers suck, My player is full of glitches and so is the gameplay , Big men getting defended and blocked/made to change shot in the post by players Half their size ...

I have not experienced a single issue with MyPlayer, haven't tried online though.

I play full length quarters and can't say I've had those issues.
1. My teammates have never hit the bottom of the backboard (Mellow and Stat), I have though.

2. ??

3. 99 in what shooting? There are multiple shot categories

4. I wish my team would trade for a damn PG

5. I think that's Just Noah, he's on my franchise team and can't do anything around the hoop.

6. True, like I said, need a PG.

7. That doesn't happen to me, I stuff those mofos.

Im in my player Year 3 7 min Quarters

1. Your teammates are garbage they hit the bottom of the backboard on layups, D rose misses wide open layups etc.

2. You cant be a starter in the all star game , my OVR 99 im 12th man 3 years in a row.

3. Im 99 in shooting (close,MId,3pt)yet i miss wide open shot with the same release (MJ's)

4. My team trades away talent , we have 2PG 6 SG, 2 Sf ,1Pf and 1 C , Completely off balanced team.

5.The computer plays Lock down Defense no matter how bad the player is at defense ,(delonte west blocked Noah on 2 dunks from the front)and also the cpu puts their hands up and its a block

6.Can't ask the team to find other players to trade for

7.The cpu player will make %99.9
of the shot no matter how crazy they are when the clock is running down (my block is 83 Im a SG BTW)

Its still fun (not as much as 2k11) but it gets frustrating when I miss a game winner with a clutch ratting of 99

kevinsheeks2128d ago

2k11 is so much better then 2k12 when it come's to my player -_-

Why is it in Live games the players knees are always bent? The players never straighten their legs out. Look at the pics. Nobody stands straight up like that.only time people in basketball do that is when they are playing defense.
