For even more on EA’s basketball sim, check out my NBA Live 18 review. Here’s what I had to say about the game when it released in 2017:

One of the coolest additions to NBA Live 18 is the ability to play as WNBA teams. While I’m not the biggest follower of the league, it was refreshing to see all of the bigger names that I know in a video game. Unfortunately, the women are all segregated to their own exhibition mode, which means players can’t create female players or do a franchise mode controlling a WNBA team. That’s a bummer, but this is at least a solid step forward.

There’s no denying that there are rough edges, but one thing Electronic Arts has nailed is the feel of playing a pick-up game. It’s a slightly less technical title than its competitor, but it offers up a far better single-player experience. If you’re looking for something fresh, or just want to play as Diana Taurasi, then you can’t go wrong with picking up NBA Live 18.
