Summary: I was hoping for 2K12, but long story short i got this. I was disappointed by the graphics, but what do you expect from a game made in 2007? second, the gameplay is good, but moves and shots can become monotonious at times. gameplay can also be very frustrating. by this i mean one game you cant miss a shot, but the next game your missing wide open lay ups. but still, a pretty good game.
Summary: Gameplay and graphics are improved over 2k7 and now that this game is so cheap its a great deal. I have alot of fun playing this game alone or with friends. The character models looks much more lifelike than in 2k7 but some player still look weird. The control is simple enough for new players or deep enough if you want to learn more advanced moves. They got rid of the "story mode" called 24/7 and its fine with me.
Summary: 2k8 i believe 2k8 is better than the NBA live... because its more realistic from the players on the bench being silly and cheering for their teammates on the floor to the crowds & mascots & cheerleaders... even the freethrow shot of every player is identical to the shot of the real deal... lol my english is so funny...i'm so drunk @_@...but yeah its hella good si i recommend this game.. go xbox 360!!!
Summary: Graphics and Gameplay is amazing. I decided to buy it because it's just RAW! It's a MUST BUY! It's so fun to play with your friends and your family. there's a lot of new features, including the blacktop where you take it to the streets and just show everyone what's in you. IT truly is one of the best basketball games I ever played to date.
Summary: Personally, I preferred NBA 2K7 over this version. Although it's easy to adjust the settings like speed, and game sliders (% FT, % 3-Point, etc.); I have trouble getting the settings to my own liking, which is a fast-paced high-percentage shots made kind of game. But that doesn't mean I don't want the computer to be challenging. And I can't figure out a ratio that I like where I don't just blow out the computer every time.
Summary: The simulation of the player characteristics and signature moves are better than NBA Live 08. However I noticed a glitch in dunk contest, the shorts of players sometimes disappear.? As for pros and cons, I like the dunk contest in Live 08 better as it is more realistic with the judges and score card. Even though I like you can use props on 2k8. Graphics are slighty better on 2k8.
Summary: My brother said he wanted it. He loves it. He plays this game all night. I strongly recommend this game for anyone who loves sports. Overall 9 out of 10. (Only taking away from the slow reaction time of some of the players.
Summary: When I bought the NBA 2K8 playstation3 game, I bought it for my son. He loves the graphics and the fact that the game plays smooth. It is in high definition and the picture is very clear. It's like watching a real live game. The only thing he doesn't like about the game is that he can't always play some of the players he wants to play with online. I bought the game about 2 months ago.
