Does the NBA Live franchise have any life left in it to ever make a legitimate comeback? EA Sports has continued attempts to resuscitate its once-popular basketball series only to fail time and time again. Given the track record there would be little reason to expect NBA Live 18 to be a really good game but it comes surprisingly close to achieving just that.

Still, by proving enjoyable and accessible, for the first time since 2009 Live is a viable alternative on the marketplace for basketball fans.
