Work in Progress

Scott W. White, Amazon

  • Summary: This core game here is very good, however lacking a campaign or franchise mode really hurts the game. Additionally the AI gets predictable over time and you start blowing out the computer. Not a bad game, but not great either.

NBA 2K8 - Jekyll & Hyde

Brian, Amazon
18 February 2008
  • Summary: After playing the game for 3 months, I have to say that the game is very fragmented in terms of quality. VERY fragmented. Some parts are absolutely incredibly well done. Player movement and emulation of real-life players are awesome, definitely best ever.

Gameplay issues keep it to 3 stars

  • Summary: Bought this for my new PS3- and like all the other reviews, have to second that the visuals and motion graphics are the best I've ever seen.

unbelievable

  • Summary: In an effort to make this game as real as possible, it seems that designers decided that dunking and driving the lane are not part of the NBA.

good game be the referee calling sucks!

  • Summary: The graphics are great and the game is fun overall. However, it is a little annoying that the referees call things against you and do not on the other team. For example, when you are throwing in the ball, if you don't get it in in like 4 seconds it is a turnover.

  • Summary: Damn man...these graphics look like they have taken a leap backwards. the character models are embarassing and feels way too arcadey and too easy to score. Live 08 character models are very impressive and I find it more of a sim than 2k8 this year.

  • Summary: As with hockey, EA's NBA Live 08 entry is far superior in terms of graphics, sound, and gameplay to 2K Sports. Skip this one.

Nearly there, an idea that didn't work

  • Excerpt: I recently reviewed 2k10, and have played this series for years, in my opinion 2k10 is the best of the lot, only just beating 2k7 which was fantastic, this game however, sadly was always flawed.

eher enttäuscht

DZ, Amazon

  • Summary: Ich spiele schon lange die NBA 2K-Reihe...Macht immer Riesenspaß,wird einfach nicht langweilig und stellt NBA Live Meilenweit in den Schatten(wo ich übrigens mal gar nicht versteh warum dieses Spiel jedes Jahr ne gute Bewertung um die 80-85%kriegt)!Deswegen freute ich mich auf NBA 2K8..
