PSX Extreme

  • Excerpt: There isn't any other basketball franchise as long running as EA's own NBA Live series. Live's history dates back to 1989, as EA's Lakers vs. Celtics was the building block of things to come. Bulls vs. Lakers, and Bulls vs. Blazers would then follow, with NBA Showdown 94 capping an end to the pre-Live era. NBA Live 95 would mark the first entry for the series, and 13 iterations later, here we are. The competition for NBA videogame supremacy is bitter, very bitter.

  • Summary: NBA Live's transition from the last generation of consoles to the current generation has been fraught with problems--too many to list here. Nevertheless, the team at EA has kept plugging away, and it seems the third time is the charm. There aren't really any new features to speak of in NBA Live 08, but the gameplay has seen vast improvements on both sides of the ball.
  • Pros: Controls are tight and responsive, Game is fast-paced but doesn't feel too unrealistic, Vastly improved over 07, Kerr, Albert, Johnson, and Anthony do a great job calling the action
  • Cons: Players miss too many easy shots and still attempt layups from behind the backboard, Transition animation could still be improved, Not a whole lot in the way of new game modes and features

NBA Live 08

Console Monster

  • Summary: Let’s be frank. The NBA Live series has not made a pretty transition from the last generation of consoles to the current generation. However, NBA Live 08, the newest entry into Electronic Arts’ basketball franchise, makes positive steps in competing with the vastly superior (up until now) 2K franchise. While it has a lot of room to grow in terms of both gameplay and in the features it provides, what you will be getting is an extremely solid game of basketball.
  • Pros: Gameplay is vastly improved, Visuals and audio are excellent, Online Leagues
  • Cons: Lacks features, Defensive AI could use some work, Small framerate issues

  • Conclusion: Volt szerencsém a rivális NBA 2K7-t is górcső alá venni, de számottevő különbséget nem vélek felfedezni közöttük. Egyértelmű győztest hirdetni nem tudnék. Igaz, hogy külsőre nekem a másik jött be jobban, ez viszont nem jelenti azt, hogy valóban szebb is külcsíny terén. Viszont ezeknél, továbbra is sokkal jobban élveztem az NBA STREET HOMECOURT-öt, mert az az extremitás sokkal inkább az én világom, ezért azoknak, akik szeretik a kosárlabdát, de nem elhivatott realitás...
  • Pros: Korrekt megvalósításÚj köntös
  • Cons: Instabil frame rateHiányzik belőle az egyéniség

  • Summary: In ultima analisi NBA Live 08 risulta essere una simulazione cestistica di discreto valore, considerando e premiando soprattutto i passi avanti fatti rispetto ai precedenti episodi che a fatica chiamavamo “simulazioni”.

  • Excerpt: - Elk jaar weer zorgt Electronic Arts ervoor dat voetbal-, ijshockey- en zelfs baseballfans aan de slag kunnen met een nieuwe game. En ook elk jaar weer probeert EA Sports de lat hoger te leggen en dat zullen de basketbalfans graag horen. Dit jaar is het de beurt aan NBA Live 2008 om EA’s basketbalreputatie hoog te houden. Zal het EA lukken om de hoge verwachtingen opnieuw te kunnen inlossen?

  • Summary: Premier volet sur Playstation 3, NBA Live 08 marque son entrée sur la consoel de Sony. Aux joueurs de juger si le titre d'EA passe devant NBA 2K. Les batailles sont rudes et les résultats sont là, un bon jeu signé EA Sports.
  • Pros: L'ambiance globale, Agréable pour les yeux, Fluide, Matchs rythmés
  • Cons: L'IA, Une défense qui part en Live, Un arbire capricieux qui parfois casse le rythme d'un match, Les temps de chargement trop longs
