The game has looked good since 15. It's really up to how it feels to play and the depth and balance of content to keep you engaged and wanting to play more.

Four things I am looking for.

1: More physical play inside. It has been way too easy to score on the inside and not physical at all.

2: In career play, injuries in played out games. It was unfair for my team to have everyone healthy for all 82 games while opponents were missing players.

3: Being able to throw more than one kind of pass.

4: More fouls.

More physical play inside is a must. But not just control hindering animations but the slight contact that happens as well.

Physicality and defensive presence is a must. Even though dunks and layups are high percentage shots, when the paint is packed, they're difficult looks. The defense needs to be able to bother shooters in the lane without necessarily blocking shots. That way, blocking numbers, field goal percentages, and points in the paint are all realistic, as would be the nature of the gameplay from play-to-play.

Exactly. They need to have the gameplay to back up the numbers and not just artificially lower layup percentages.

I saw on another video they had a face scanning setup just like the one they do for the nba players right next to selection labelled "The One" so yeah I think it's for the rising star mode but my question is if they did face scanning at the event did they have the face ready soon after? And if so why does it take them 5 months to do an nba players scan?

So, no official video from EA yet? I saw a FIFA trailer just now and it was obvious that it was using the frostbite engine as they threw the logo up immediately after the ea logo

This week we're guaranteed to get something with EA play coming up on the weekend.

I think EA released that FIFA trailer because they are going to sell copies no matter what, so they weren't worried about waiting till the weekend to get the most eyes on a trailer.

My excitement will grow when I hear more about the Dynasty mode changes/Roster editing capabalities.

Hopefully we have more details shortly.

Its sad that they didn't stick with this animation direction, and just improve on it. Some of the animations look pretty awesome, and less herky jerky. I would have been playing Live a lot more if the animations continued in this direction.

In the video reveal for Live 18, I'm seeing the herky jerky animation blunders again. I am holding out hope, but I have a bad feeling that Live will still have them in the final release. I don't think it's acceptable to say "You should be used to it, it's what EA does". Just because we are used to something, doesn't mean it's right, or that it doesn't need changing.

Watching this review today made me a little sad, because of what could have been.

Crossing my fingers Live 18 shows improvement....

I actually played Live 10 a few weeks ago when Sit was visiting and man I forgot how much fun you could have playing a basketball game. Yes, the controls are pretty responsive without those long canimations and the game rewards you for taking open mid range jumpers

One step forward and two steps back as always.

FML.

Legacy animations (i.e. the bad ones) still all through that video.

You take that much time off and it still animates like that?

From the gameplay in that video it looks like EA is moving in the right direction. The gameplay looks descent. Just some of the animations need work...

IF we were to get a PC version of NBA LIVE, I'd buy it, but we won't... So it's back too 2k for the next 10 years.

This mode looks cool and really everything is cleaned up minus a couple herk and jerks here and there, and this will look great once its out



Ygtrece, EA doesn't see the PC side very profitable and risky due to the threat of hackers or pirates. You might as well check out Andrew's PC Rumors page to take a look at a petition we may try

IMO, the improvements are there, it looks way better than past games. The way players leave the floor and hang in the air is the only stiff movement I see. It looks kinda slow-mo. I am willing to support and buy this game if we get it for the PC.

My first impression was that you guys are smoking crack and that the animations were smooth. smoother than your typical Live game. The animations did remind me of 2k a bit

I can promise that I am not smoking crack... but, you might have $5 to $10 just off of me saying it.

Yeah totally. I am not passing on a game just because the jumps look a little bit slow mo. If this game look as good as we can see in this video, I'm ready to become a Live fanboy, even though I can't touch the game if we get no PC version. Might as well buy myself a console especially for this franchise in a couple of years when the new generation kicks in.

"Stiff and herky jerky."

Nah... gameplay looks great. Much improved, but I'd love to see how it feels myself. I wish they would bring the game to PC, because that would be the only reason I'd buy it. I'll be trying out the demo on my PS4 though.

It does look more alive, as well as more graphically appealing. I agree with that.

Well the only thing we hope is that they do bring it, and they only talked about the demos on the primary platforms XO or PS4 this August, and maybe also the Switch as well

I've supported EA almost always and really like 16 but the animations have gone backwards.

The body shapes and proportions along with many of those animations in the gameplay video make it look almost like a caricature or comical game.

I'm lost for words. I just don't get how the people in charge have allowed this to happen. There is nothing revolutionary, or compared to 16 even 'evolutionary' sadly.

Sure, it'll have some good things just like 16 did but it's simply not good enough. Those animations are not realistic by any stretch of the imagination and the body proportions just wrong. And as my earlier post mentioned, you've still got some of those ugly dunk and around the hoop animations from like 7 or 8 years ago. Do the big wigs in charge know basketball? Case in point, the way players shot with their wrong hand around the rim in 16, the dunk animations that look like they've been mo-capped on an 8 foot hoop and the around the rim heaves that look like they were mo-capped by a bunch of non-athletes.

Again, just can't express how disappointed that after so long, after so much feedback from loyal fans, we get this.

I'm not sure how you can be disappointed with the strides its taken to become a playable basketball game. Especially when 16 was so broken that all you had to do was run pick and roll then press circle to score 90% of the time.

Because it would take a couple years to rebuild it.

BTW, despite ea play being over, how do we not have more information about the game or gameplay or anything really

I was expecting to hear a little more as well. Still plenty of preview season left, I suppose.
