NBA 2K8 Review

IGN Entertainment
11 March 2010
  • Conclusion: As I mentioned near the beginning of this review, the game’s new animation system is very nice, despite some clipping and framerate issues. Character models have been improved too, although some of the notable players look downright creepy. I particularly loved the new in-game animations, which make finger rolls and spin moves look sexier than ever. You won’t really notice it during the game, but it’s definitely distracting during timeouts.

  • Excerpt: Over the years, my love for professional basketball has grown. In grade school, I liked the Chicago Bulls. I enjoyed everything about the team and the way they played the game (I could separate the way a player performed on the court from the way they lived off the court.

Expert Review

Game Over Online
26 November 2007
  • Excerpt: The gameplay is really what has set the series apart from the Live series, and 2K has played it very safe this year, keeping the same basic gameplay from last year, and even taking away a few flashy parts. No longer will you have risky lead passes or ankle-breaking Iso-Motion. Instead, moves will be based on your actual movement, which I suppose is more realistic, but can be frustrating until you really learn how to manipulate the movement.

NBA 2K8

Game Over Online
26 November 2007
  • Excerpt: Over the last few years, 2K Sports has been in complete control in the race for basketball gaming supremacy. The last few entries in the 2K series have been excellent, and couple that with the fact that EA and Sony's option have been less than stellar, and the choice of which game to buy has been an easy one. For fans of the 2K series, you can rest easy-NBA 2K8 is definitely still the best choice for a virtual baller this year.

  • Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is Getting to the top is fairly easy if you work hard, but staying there is what requires you to be unique. And basketball fans know that since the release of NBA2K eight years ago on the Sega Dreamcast (RIP) it has been the top basketball simulation game. While competitors such as EA and Sony have been trying to improve their games by consistently changing them, Visual Concept has kept the core almost the same since the release of 2K.
