By the time that the mid 1990s rolled around, EA's standard basketball game engine was beginning to get downright creaky. They decided to rewrite the whole thing from scratch, developing an new isometric engine for 16-bit platforms and a full-perspective polygonal engine for 32-bit platforms. This is one of the Genesis ports of the 16-bit games, and they carry on the EA tradition of sporting sim excellence.

NBA Live 98, was one of the last Genesis games released and the last 16-bit version of the game. Many game historians consider the NBA Live series to be the finest basketball sims ever created for a 16-bit platform, and it's easy to see why. Great graphics, great sound, great gameplay, user options out the wazoo - for what more could a fan ask? If you consider yourself a serious Genesis gamer, then you need to have at least one of these in your cart collection. Hey, they're from by EA Sports - what better advertising do I need?
