NBA Live 08 PS2 Review

Console Obsession
31 May 2010
  • Excerpt: EA Sports is in a difficult position – do they leave out fans of the last generation of console and concentrate on the shiny new graphics of the Xbox 360 and PS3? Or do they try and continue their “pure” basketball franchise with a new game to wipe out memories of last year’s lacklustre attempt? The usual slick EA presentation is in place, from the menus to the TV-style presentation of the game.

NBA Live 08

Playstation Illustrated
17 April 2009
  • Excerpt: With the PS3 and 360 versions getting all the attention, it is easy to forget that NBA Live 08 is also on the PS2. While this is good news for basketball fans who have yet to jump to a newer console, it ends there. Unlike the "next-gen" version of the game, NBA Live 08 doesn't improve much about last year's game. After playing the same game on the PS3, it is easy to dog the PS2 version on its poor visuals.

  • Conclusion: is strong for a basketball game. However, this PS2 version is not as exciting as its high definition counterpart on the PS3. This is mostly because it just looks bad (in comparison). If given the option, go for the high definition version and enjoy seeing more crisp and clean visuals. Still, if that is not an option, then the PS2 version should suffice if you are gunning for a good basketball video game.

  • Conclusion: NBA Live 08 is a competent, fun basketball game on both the PS2 and the PSP. The problem is that other than updated rosters, they're almost the exact same competent games from last year, which were almost exactly the same as the competent versions from the year before.
  • Pros: Solid controls, Lots of scoring and fast-paced action, Good amount of game modes.
  • Cons: Pretty much the same as last year, Some of the biggest improvements are undoing "improvements" from last year, Not much to look at and the frame rate is slow.

  • Summary: Wahrscheinlich werden sich an "NBA Live 08" die Geister scheiden. Basketballfans werden von diesem Spiel eventuell nicht besonders begeistert sein. Gelegenheitsspieler dieser Sportart und Einsteiger dagegen freuen sich über die enorme Zugänglichkeit von "NBA Live 08". Mir macht das Spiel sehr viel Spaß und ich lerne einiges über diese Sportart in spielerischer Weise, was will ich mehr?

  • Summary: Trotz offizieller Ford- und Landrover-Lizenz hat dieses Rennspiel keine Daseinsberechtigung. Die Wettbewerbe auf den langweilig designten Strecken sind schlichtweg ohne jede Herausforderung und technisch eine Katastrophe. Da könnt ihr lieber aus eurem Schrank das erste "Colin McRa"Spiel von vor zehn Jahren hervorkramen und habt bedeutend mehr Spaß.

  • Excerpt: Quand le match est serré et que le ballon est entre vos mains, qu'est-ce que vous faites ? Vous pénétrez et montez au-dessus du panier pour écraser un dunk monstrueux, ou bien vous cherchez un espace libre pour tuer le match avec un tir à trois points ? Dans NBA LIVE 08, prenez le contrôle du...

NBA Live 08 - Análise

Eurogamer
9 May 2008
  • Excerpt: Mais um ano, mais uma temporada de NBA Live, uma série que já marca entrada na PlayStation 2 á longos anos. Com episódios mais felizes e outros menos, a verdade é que ao longo dos anos pouca tem sido a inovação. Este ano podem contar com um jogo que reflecte este mesmo pensamento, pouca inovação. Sim, porque á parte do novo modo FIBA, não irão encontrar nada de novo em NBA Live 08.
