NBA LIVE 16
    NBA LIVE 16 is EA’s take on North American Basketball and a very competent one in terms of gameplay, graphics and animations.

    Improving on the graphics from the previous version of NBA Live game, EA managed to create a game that looks amazing. Those players who loved and enjoyed playing the previous version, NBA Live 16 will be just a continuation of the enjoyment.

    One issues in which NBA Live 16 did not improve a lot is the looks of the players. While some of the biggest names of basketball are created totally realistically some other, less famous players are almost unrecognizable. This seems to be the issue that can gets transferred from one version of the game to another without EA being able to solve that issue. One of the strongest assets EA has for NBA games is the presentation. The cooperation with ESPN is also evident in this game with the live broadcast effect used in many other NBA games. Just like in previous games, ESPN's Mike Breen and Jeff Van Gundy fulfilling the role of sports commentators and there seem to be some issues with how commentary was incorporated in the game.

    One of the biggest problems with this version of NBA Live game is the fact that after the very start of the game players will notice that players are moving very similarly to each other and combined with the problematic controls that NBA Live 16 is displaying that might lead players to have a lot of turnovers while playing the game. One improvement in comparison to the previous version of this game is that shooting the ball is very much improved and when you shoot the ball a percentage bar will appear above the player's head that will indicate the probability that your shoot will be successful.

    Dynasty and Ultimate Team Mode

    Dynasty and Ultimate Team Mode that were already part of the previous versions of the game will be once again part of the NBA Live 16 game. However, those two modes will have several additions that will make them more interesting and appealing to the players. Dynasty mode did not go through some changes while Ultimate Team is still one of the best ways through which players can enjoy the game. The UT will offer some goals for you to complete in order to obtain certain reward cards. These two modes, especially the Ultimate Team Mode, besides one-on-games, will be one of the most interesting aspects of this game that EA introduced in 2016.


    The NBA Live 16 introduced several new modes that players can enjoy while playing the game and that is what makes NBA Live 16 better in many aspects in comparison to the previous version of the game. However, not everything is that great. The problems arise in regards to slightly problematic controls and a gameplay that for many people seems to be unbalanced.
