Editors' Notes

EA knows how to make a good sports game. Impressive visuals? Check. Great animation? Check. Fun? Double check. The meat and bones here is collecting players and handcrafting a team so good it’d make Lebron and Steph jealous.

The game is trash


Come on EA I expect better from you! The game used to be so simple and fun. Yeah there were problems with the game, but over time they were fixed. Ever since NBA Live mobile 18 came out there it’s like the EA went back to square one! In fact it looks like the game was worse now then it has ever been! The game is laggy and slow for multiple devices except for those higher tier devices like iPhone 7. Before the game reset I could play the game on my 5s without any issues whatsoever! Secondly the gameplay has not improved at all, the only thing new is that there is a goal tending foul but why not a back court violation. It would have been so easy to implement this into the game! It’s like EA are lazy and too busy raking in the money from there new “Pay-to-win” game. Thirdly so many fans of the game give feed back on how EA can make the game better but it’s like EA don’t even listen to the community. Lastly I have been playing this game since the days of season 1 that I enjoyed greatly, it’s not that hard to copy the good things that you did then and use it to build the game now! Oh I could go on for ages about this half hearted game and believe me someone has listed a more than a 100 things wrong with the game from the top of his head!

Great Game, completely fixed


Although being a great game and very addictive, there are some aspects of the game that are completely fixed and make you come back and play later. One example of this is when a challenge cost 50 energy to do, this takes 50 mins to recharge, which is fair enough, however it was only on my 6th attempt in which I was able to complete this, therefore waiting 2 hours AND that is with buying energy with NBA cash, the only currency available to purchase using real money... an argument against this is that you have to be good at the game, but the fact they have no difficulty setting, it allows them to up the difficulty when a win in within sight or easy it up to allow you to win. This aspect is quite prominent especially in Live Challenges, however it is a great game. A solid 3-

This review is being edited a few days later. I have experienced so much more of this same problem and if you are easily aggravated, this is not the game for you, I actually lowered my previous rating as I believe my recent experience severely differs from all my past experience,
