    NBA LIVE 18
    NBA Live 18 brings basketball simulator video games back into the spotlight, with a simplified gameplay and vastly improved sounds and visuals.

    NBA Live 18 is the latest basketball simulation video game in the series developed and published by EA Sports. The game can be played on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 and it is the highest rated game in the franchise since NBA Live 10. EA Sports decided to take a year off between games, with the latest installment being a significantly improved version of NBA Live 16.

    Gameplay of NBA Live 18

    The gameplay of NBA Live 18 hasn’t changed much compared to the previous game in the series, but several new game modes were added. Players have the option of experiencing basketball live off the court, while using some innovative customization features. The Game Face app for mobile devices empowers them to use their face to create an athlete that bears a strong resemblance. NBA Live 18 is also the first game in the series to feature a WNBA roster and a fully fledged single player called "The One".

    NBA Live 18 Graphics and Sounds

    NBA Live 18 developers decided to simplify the core game mechanics and make it more appealing to casual players. Athletes better resemble their real-life counterparts and off the court their actions are more fluid, therefore more authentic. The addition of the Game Face app adds a new layer of customization and appeals to those players who want to create an athlete in their own image. The fluid mechanics make the game approachable and brilliantly succeed at capturing the very essence of an NBA match. On and off court, the sounds of cheering crowds create an amazing atmosphere and bring players into the spotlight.

    Summary

    NBA Live 18 was never about reinventing the wheel and despite a one-year break, it doesn’t reimagine the genre. Instead, it builds on the popularity of the previous basketball simulation videogame and makes incremental progress in all areas. Online matches are stable, the single player mode gets players immersed into the atmosphere and makes excellent use of superior customization options. With this new installment EA made it clear that its top priority is to produce basketball simulators that appeal to casual players.
