NBA 2K18 vs NBA Live 18 Player Face Comparison, Part Three

Posted October 10th, 2017 at 10:15 am

Whether it be through varied scanning techniques, differing levels of access to specific individuals, or their respective graphical engines, competing sports video games tend to win with representations of certain players but certainly not all of them. In the past with the basketball games NBA 2K had the clear edge according to fans but NBA Live had some respectable showings. Most recently when conducted between NBA 2K15 and NBA Live 15 it was the former that won for near 75% of the players that were examined.

Now it’s time to look at NBA 2K18 and NBA Live 18 which have both boasted improvements to visuals and face scanning in the last three years. Polls are open now for the final set of eight players. Make sure to also cast votes for the first set of faces as well as the second set. Results and analysis to follow later this week!

    2K looks better but it also they look like Wax figures of those players. They don’t look real, just fake and “smooth”.
