NBA Live 10 vs. NBA 2K10
With both franchises set to released their latest editions, we put NBA Live 10 and NBA 2K10 up against each other.
|Category||NBA Live 10||NBA 2K10|
|Graphics||Graphics are good, but extreme close-ups cause pixilation and blurriness .||With Visual Concepts at the helm, the graphics are true to life all the way down to the details of the players' tattoos. EDGE|
|Presentation||The start of the game is decent, but it lacks the smoothness and seamless transitions of 2K10.||The loading is fast and the game menus resemble a real-life NBA scoreboard. EDGE|
|Gameplay||EA has stepped up its gameplay with in-game extras like the size up, where you can break ankles on command, and the hustle play, where you can control diving for loose balls. EDGE||The gameplay is good, but there could've been realistic improvement made in the transition game and on the defensive end (at times, it tends to be too arcade-like).|
|Online Gameplay||Online gameplay lacks the depth and excitement of the competition.||This game has incredible franchise play -- and with a revamped interface you'll be online for days. EDGE|
|Commentary||Blah, blah, blah that's what it sounds like to me.||The conversations that Kevin Harlan and Clark Kellogg have seem so real, it's like they're calling your game in real time. EDGE|
|Controls||EA made its controls very easy for a novice to pick up and instantly compete. EDGE||I love everything about the game's controls, but using the stick for post moves gets a little hectic when the game's on the line.|
|Cover Athlete||Kobe is good, but Superman is the future. EDGE||It's easy to say your cover is hot when the NBA champ is on it.|
The Bottom Line: EA has raised the bar with improved graphics, gameplay and in-game moves, but when you get down to it, 2K has created a beast of a franchise that continues to get better year after year.
