Summary: NBA Live 08 is undoubtedly an improvement for the series, but still lacks the necessary enhancements to call this one a winner. Though fans of basketball might enjoy the great graphics, the gameplay calls for something more.
Pros: Great Graphics, Solid team system, Great online Functionality with Leagues
Cons: Notable framerate issues, Unfixed free-throw system, Uneasy controls and lackluster defensive plays
Conclusion: is strong for a basketball game. This PS3 version is a great experience for those looking for a solid high definition basketball game. The graphics are sharp and the controls are very fluid. The real disappointment about this version is the lack of different modes and mini-games. While there fairly strong support for multi-player gaming, for those of us who prefer single-player modes, we're missing out on quite a bit.
