One Way NBA Live 14 is Better than NBA 2K14

GoodGameBro writes, "“Ice” is as integral to NBA defense in 2014 as the zone blitz is to football. How, then, is it implemented in both NBA Live 14 and NBA 2K14?

In NBA Live 14, players defend the pick and roll in ways that closely resemble real life. The fit of the “ice” coverage is a little more precise than real life and clearly signposted for users, but the general principle is correct." (NBA 2K14, NBA Live 14, PS4, Xbox One)

Late but correct.

Live looks weird, but plays a better game of basketball than (the amazing looking) 2K14.

And just shows that 99% of gaming sites who reviewed it, just quickly judged a book by its cover.

Youre crazy. Nba live 14 shouldve never been released.

This is not a case of everyone rushing to critise Live unfairly. When the developers apologize for the quality of the game, it's time for fans to accept the possibility that the game sucks.

Live 14 is one of the worst games ever released by a major developer imo.

Both games have a lot of work to do. However, I think 2K14 was a better overall experience. I think if they would've taken more time with the next-gen version it could've been a lot better.

Well that cover was sure ugly as hell. I was so jacked that live was coming back and I told myself I'm not gonna worry about graphics just gameplay but after playing next gen 2k14 and then trying the live demo, I just couldn't get past the graphics! Lol!

One thing that Live does better than 2k? Collect dust at GameStop on the shelf. Big lots won't make anything on it either. Just put Live in the hole they left when they dug up those E.T. games.

No, this game sucks ass.The defense sucks, the dunks/layups are a sure shot no matter how much the defense try to bat you down.
