Summary: I WAS A DIE HARD NBA LIVE GAMER, BUT NBA LIVE HAS SUCK ALONG WITH MARCH MADDNESS FOR A COUPLE OF YEARS. SO WHEN PS3 CAME OUT I SAID I WILL GIVE NBA 2K8 A TRY AND WAS I IMPRESS. THEY HAVE A NEW FAN OF THE SERIES.
Summary: I'm giving this such high ratings because this game cost me less than a cup of coffee to purchase. But aside from the pricepoint it is seriously the most fun I've had with a basketball game since the one I've played on the Dreamcast years ago. It's definitely arcadey so one player on your team can win it for you, but that's the type of game I want. If you want a simulation, then please skip. The graphics are really good even by today's standards.
Summary: This is simply the best basketball sim out there. The graphics are insane, the sixaxis ball control is unimaginable, the game of the week brings you back again and again. Simply playing a game with a friend is in one word FUN. A must buy for any PS3 owner. This game, MLB the show, and probably Hot shots golf and definately best in their class... Enjoy.
Summary: Disclaimer: I've been a avid NBA Live fan/gamer till 2006, so I would say that I can notice some of the improvements in 2K8..First off the players do not stake across the court as they do in Live. Second the players actually look like players. I haven't touched Live 08 for the simple fact that I feel that 2k8 is more realistic. Nice added touch is that during certain times in the game the crowd would get on their feet and start to cheer louder.
