Top NBA Live Mobile Review Choices

When EA reps declared they were going to be focusing on mobile for the NBA Live series, it wasn't that surprising. Still, I was full of quite a bit of hope that NBA Live Mobile will deliver a new and intriguing mobile sports gambling experience.

However, following a week with the sport, I can confidently say that if the future of gambling (and sports gambling) is on cellular, we've got a lengthy way to go. Gameplay
NBA Live Mobile has the typical mobile sports-sim encounter with buttons associated with actions on the right along with a digital analog stick on the left side of the display. For whatever reason, this has become the default way to control players but it doesn't mean it's simple or especially fun to playwith.

Without physical buttons to push, which is a consequence more of this stage than of design, it will become a research in focus to ensure that that your fingers are in the ideal place and prepared to deliver the right command.

Things like passing and shooting consistently desire a small delay to ensure you are currently currently pushing the right part of the screen and oftentimes this ends in a pretty jerky feel to the flow of the gameplay. I am not sure if this could ever be remedied not in the layout.

Another issue with this type of controller is that it's incredibly simplistic. In NBA Live Mobile, you have two buttons on defense: a guard button and a block button. On offense you've got shoot pass and drive.

Do not get me wrong, anything more than this probably would bring about an impossible control scenario, along with also the Live Mobile team has done a decent job at establishing several layers of thickness.

For example, holding down the shield button will result in your competitor being guarded by you, while tapping on it tries a steal. You hold the push button down and then slide your finger up to dunk or lay the ball up.

In all honesty, this is something which may be enlarged whilst also maintaining the interface that is simple, to enable a degree of control.

A negative of the gameplay is the AI in the game is simplistic and does not really go beyond the fundamentals. Players do not go off of the ball and there's no way to predict for something as basic as roll and an option.

In short, the foundation in Live Mobile is solid enough for a mobile game, however this by no means replaces your console experience. Modes
NBA Live Mobile is a game built on the Ultimate Team concept, like the other EA Sports games.

You have head to head, live seasons, events, leagues and practice to partake in. All of this is done inside the Ultimate Team framework of making points to buy cards to make your team better.

Obviously that's the extent of your expertise using Live Mobile, and in this time, you either love the Ultimate Team notion or you hate it -- and it's doubtful that your mind changes much out of that. Final Thoughts
We have to keep in mind the price of entry into NBA Live Mobile is free, which means that you can jump in and give the game a try without a lot of skin in the sport.

The gameplay is typical for a sports gambling experience and simple since zero new ground only breaks. The Ultimate Team mode is something and if you don't like it, there is no use in giving the game a try as it will not alter your thoughts.

Overall, if this is the future of sports gambling, I'm not particularly sure I'm a fan of it. The sport itself is above average. NBA Live Mobile does all strong enough, and also the modes themselves seem to function without much of a problem. The AI is kind of dumb, but you will find there's a sport here to be appreciated if only for a while.

On the other hand, prospects and the experience for the future leave me searching for something completely different soon enough.
