Playstation Illustrated
15 May 2008
  • Excerpt: SCEA's NBA franchise got off to a bad start on the PS3. Although it was impressive visually, it came up extremely short or average in nearly every other category. The series' follow-up, NBA 08 , is an improved version of last year's game, but still doesn't quite go where it needs to.

  • Excerpt: When the PS3 was launched the big hullabaloo was about how it was the only true HD system and Sony�s release of NBA 07 flaunted that characteristic endlessly. Now that the PS3 isn�t the only 1080p console out there, one would think that the pomp would stop but immediately upon loading the title the...

  • Excerpt: on my Nintendo Entertainment System--you know, back when we played games because they were fun. I didn't care much for realism back then, either. Fast forward to today, and it's clear most developers strive for a perfect mix of arcade and simulation in any sports title.

GameSpot
2 October 2007
  • Summary: Developers are often criticized for seemingly doing as little as possible from one year to the next with their sports games. That is not the case with NBA 2K8. It's superior to last year's game in almost every way; there's loads of new content and the gameplay is better than ever.
  • Pros: New signature style moves look amazing, CPU plays smart and is challenging but fair, Slam dunk contest is a fun addition, Lots of online options, Tons of ways to stay busy
  • Cons: Too many missed layups, Awful instructions make it tough to learn new moves, Menus are still a chore to navigate

  • Summary: This release is entirely average. It seems Sony has more or less missed the point for a second year in a row with this series.
