*Tags have been added sorry for any inconvience* So the name has changed from NBA Live to Elite. But has the gameplay changed?
The graphics can use a boost, but the controls look promising! Edit: Why is there a "bad report" on this? It is legitimate E3 news....lol
This looks horrible. I can't remember when Live was a good game. Was it '98? The trend looks to be continuing.
just i forgot to add tags. all is fixed now :) enjoy
LOL at the critics being proved right, this looks worse then the SONY NBA games now
NBA Live has been falling further and further behind 2K in terms of quality of product. The re-branding is an obvious move to regain some of that ground lost to 2K. I think its interesting that a lot of the critical insight shown at the beginning at the video are also thinly veiled attacks on the 2K product, as those are similar gripes that people had with NBA2k. Oh well, looks like 2K is completely ready for this new approach by garnering the services of Michael Jordan and to a lesser extent, Snoop Dogg. Jordan alone could sell the 2K product by association alone.
this looks just like the crap they've always had. Same sorry animations the characters still never stand up fully knees are always bent lol! What person walks around bent over all the time. This game sucks like every game before it. They got one of the head guys from 2K last year so now they think thy can steal things form 2k and say its never been done before. Please....
I really wanna give EA a chance, and what I'm about to say might not be fair because it's only a work in progress. But damn, they still need to work on it. Get rid of that annoying sound/audio when we dunk, it's been there since last generation. Second, wtf is the fast dribbling? It's also still there? Who dribbles that fast? Not EVERY NBA player dribbles through their legs THAT fast. Probably most point guards, but again, not many dribble that fast. Cmon now EA, I've played a lot of NBA LIVE games, and the animations still look the same. Driving to the hoop there looks like it's got potential though, the one-two-step-then-side-fadeawa y.
I would LOVE nothing more than for EA to relive the glory days of LIVE. However, I can't put faith in a product that has a proven next gen history of being a mess. Sure, they seem to have tweaked the controls somewhat. But, it still seems like the same animations that we have seen year in and year out. Now, I won't make this my final judgment (as this is extremely early), but EA is quickly running out of chances to be a real player in the basketball market. Plus, 2K needs the challenge to be great!
well 2k is the king of baskeball yet again..
Where's the demo. Put it up there and I will try it. If good I will tell my friends. If not, you try and tell them your darn self.
