NBA Live 16

It’s weird. I never watch basketball, I know absolutely no players by name, yet I always find myself buying an NBA game every couple of years. I’ve opted for the latest release NBA Live 16, and I can’t say I’m disappointed. The visuals are almost lifelike, and at times I felt as though I was controlling actual human beings. The passing seems to be more fluid but it takes some getting used to, and dribbling feels a bit tighter than it did the last time I played, which may have been back in 2014! It’s a bit of a shame to see the mode start with the Rising Star campaign, I thought this was done and dusted, but obviously not. You have to create a rookie player primed to become a top draft pick, and then you get into the regular basketball. I think I probably could and should have waited for the next version, but I can’t say it’s a bad game, but it’s not an excellent game either.
