Is It Any Good?

NBA LIVE 14 is a difficult game to recommend, especially when the more stellar NBA 2K14 is available. Although developers smartly incorporate real-world NBA moments through mini-games, it's the on-court action that suffers most. Players are stiff, moving awkwardly around the court. There's an overall lack of natural body movement, whether a player is shooting, rebounding, or running a fast break. Certain moves such as the hop step are easy to exploit for scoring easy baskets. If you must buy a pro hoops game, consider NBA 2K14 instead; NBA Live 14 requires a lot more practice time.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
