Critic Reviews for NBA Live 19

Live does its best work away from the NBA license, when it delves in to fantasy hoops scenarios. The NBA-focused modes still need a lot more work

EA's NBA Live franchise returns with its best effort in a while capturing the spirit and atmosphere of basketball culture, but it's not without its problems.

The biggest challenge for EA is getting people to give NBA Live 19 a shot over NBA 2K19. Overall gameplay in NBA Live 19 is good, but nowhere near great.

NBA Live 19 is a step in the right direction for the EA Sports saga. The gameplay is fun and simple, more polished than its predecessor, but it still lacks more depth and variety to stand out.

Electronic Arts has managed to deliver yet another solid entry to the NBA Live franchise. Despite the fact that there are still some rough edges and that the game certainly has room to grow, the gameplay has been refined and 'The One' is even better than it was before. It may not be on par with other elite sports games, but NBA Live 19 still is a good and fun basketball game.

Another step forward for NBA Live, which although still far from the historical rival NBA 2K, manages to reach good levels with this new episode.

This is not the best year for NBA Live, despite EA's efforts to improve this basketball game. In fact in some ways this game looks like a step back in the series, just mantaining what the game did well a year ago.
