Summary: NBA 08 is an average title, but it is so close to being great. The rainbow shot meter is a great shot meter for a basketball title. And the create a player is very addicting. In fact its this titles saving grace. Being able to use points earned during the game play to add stats to your player and unlock anything from jerseys to arenas, this is without a doubt the best part of the title.
Conclusion: NBA '08 Is'nt a Bad game and its not a great game either.the shooting is surprisingly VERY easy, once you get ised to the shooting it's rare that you miss, playing offence tends to be easy and defence has some difficulty to it but i suppose playing defence is a more skilled thing to play. It has few different features to the other NBA games such NBA Live 08 and NBA 2K8, its the only NBA game out thats has the skills challenge and a mini-game called 'Hot Spot'.
