Grading NBA Live's Trailer, in the Shadow of NBA 2K14's

Maybe people aren't cooing over it the way they are the NBA 2K14 hype reel released Thursday, but NBA Live 14's gameplay trailer does have its virtues. (NBA 2K14, NBA Live 14, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

The freaking net in Live give me a ps2/xbox era feeling , nash look like an anorexic version of himself in his mid 20's .. they can't possibly be in good situation financially to afford yet another cancel/delay . This game will sink and EA might finally pull the plug on the series (hopefully).

not only do the graphics in 2k look better but it also looks more fluid and life like. live looks choppy to say the least

NBA 2k devs deserve it, they been putting out a far better product. they beat EA the right way, not by monopolizing. I love the mannerisms of the players, so life like, everyone even the classic players play EXACTLY like the real person, only 2k would put that much effort and detail in a game. Also I hate when they bring up Madden and compare it to past Maddens for a grade, that makes no sense...

I really wanted to buy nba live 14, but now I might switch to 2k14. Unless nba live has something on it's sleeve coming.

Same here. I was hoping for glory with NBA Live 14...then they released a little teaser...and that shot all hope down...then they released the full trailer, and that shot down any chance of me buying this over 2K. Kinda sucks, but i really want someone to give 2K some competition damnit!

The reaction to this trailer was absolutely NOT reputation based, as the article suggests, it was based off of the fact that one clearly looked better. Most people were lost in the idea of playing 2K with THOSE graphics...let alone any improvements that might be had with the next-gen version. PLUS, EA has the burden of proof. THEY haven't had a basketball game in 3 years. Like it or not 2K have...and viewers can at least know what the minimum expectations of the game are.
I'm all for giving Live a chance to shine. But, EA have a LOT to prove with their new game...and this trailer didn't do much to start proving.

When is the last time Live had better gameplay than 2K?

It certainly wasn't this Generation....

I think people hate in because 1st things first it lokks worse....then look at their track record with Live (or Madden since it is being made by Tiburon) in the past 7 years.

It doesn't take a psychic to predict the future of this situation, besides we're just grading trailers.....

which trailer did you think was better?

2k might look better but 2k13 plays like crap thats why i said wait till actual gameplay is shown cuz maybe just maybe live will have better gameplay, and thats all that matters

NBA Live Was Running on Xbox One so give it a break.
iceman06  +   587d ago
Why does it have to be hate??? Honestly, it just didn't look that great. The players were very stiff. Graphically, it was okay, but not overwhelming. Maybe they were going for a different aesthetic (a cross between real and caricature). Who knows!??!
As I said above, I am willing to give it a chance. Lord knows that competition will breed great games. But, this just didn't look like adequate competition. Especially for a title that has had a 3 year hiatus.

well said im waiting to play both beofre i throw Live out the back door , 2K is getting very stale lately
ballsohard2013  +   587d ago
in comparison to 2k14... i dont like it. The players look like running nerds. It doesnt look like the game attempts to be a simulation.

For example look at the 2414 trailer... when Lebron Dunks toward the end. It really looks like i was watching him in the nba finals. The presentation on 2k looks like your in the arena of a big game. Another way you can tell 2k gets it... the deal they struck with Jay-z. The Hip-Hop and Pop culture play a huge role in basketball which also isnt evident in live.

Live looks so bland. No swag.

The 2k14 next gen gameplay on PS4 looks next gen. The live gameplay looks abysmal by comparison, which is hard to understand because they've been working on the franchise reintroduction for quite some time now. It appears there still really is no competition for 2k.
