NBA Live 19 Review

A lot of the gameplay when it comes to a sports simulation game is in how well the game recreates what happens on the court in the video game. In this area, NBA Live games tend to shine and best their competition with improved offense and defense tactics as well as a general tendency to mirror NBA games themselves. As the official NBA basketball game, the Live series of titles often have a lot to live up to in the marketplace and NBA Live 19 does a great job of carrying the torch while also adding to its burden.

The largest improvement that NBA Live 19 has over other games in the series is that the game has gone to greater lengths to refine its artificial intelligence so that player reactions on the court more closely mirror those that would be found in real life though this has resulted in a mixed result. From passing to defensive tactics, NBA Live 19 is a step up from other games but there is still the occasional awkward moment when it seems like no one knows what is going on or the in-game players act stupidly, frustrating your efforts to pull something off in game.

NBA Reality

Of course, the big draw for any NBA Live game is in its overall representation of the league as well as in how robust its online modes are. In this regard, NBA Live 19 is an excellent game and is likely to keep fans hooked until the release of the next game. Featuring the full complement of NBA teams and rosters, NBA Live 19 doesn’t shy away from letting players make their own avatar and live the life of an NBA star – albeit virtually.

Female Players

In a controversial though welcome move for female games of the Live series, NBA Live 19 is the first game in the history of Live to allow for the creation of a female basketball player as your in-game avatar. Somewhat controversial given that the NBA does not allow for female players itself, NBA Live 19’s inclusion of a female gender option in the player creation is seen as a nod towards female players of the series that may feel left out by the character creation options being male only.
