Summary: There are some ugly glitches. When you play the CPU, they frequently make shots that they shouldn't. I had a center and was leaving Shaq open WAY outside of the paint and he made nearly every single shot. I don't care if he IS open, he CANNOT and would NOT make those shots. I played Udonis Haslem and he made 3 out of 5 three pointers! Marquis Daniels, Andre Davis, tons of poor shooters just nail shots right in your face. Very annoying!
Summary: this looks like they took nba2k5's engine and made it worse. the players are waaayyy too slim, almost anorexic looking, and they dont even look like their actual counterparts. in 2k5, EVERYONE looked EXACTLY like who they were supposed to be. the post up moves are done the same way with 2k5 as they are here, and i dont know what they did with the isomotion dribbling...but it doesnt work. i didnt know rather i was doing a crossover or a spin move when i hitt that thing.
Live 08 graphics and new game play makes this game look old school.

Summary: I bought NBA Live 08 and NBA 2K8 to do a real comparison with the full game and not just a demo. NBA Live graphics are the best I've seen, and the game play has improved alot. KG can't be stopped on Live, he's a beast..NBA 2K8 graphics looks like 2-D and Live 08 looks like 3-D HD..I wish I wouldn't of bought NBA 2K8 for the first time. I guess you can't be the champ forever NBA 2K8..
Summary: this is a great rpg adventure there are lots of quests and side areas to explore but the only thing that annoys me about this game is the fact that it doesnt save very offen and unless you remember top save this game all the time (which takes away from the experience in my opinion) you will find yourself redoing somethine hours worth of gameplay to get back to where you were before you got killed
Conclusion: After reading the reviews on the net I was expecting a little more to be honest. However, it is quite a solid game with pretty good graphics, but i'm just not that much of a basketball fan - thought id take a pop at the delightful price that Play are selling it at. Basically if you like basketball then defo go for it, if not I guess you will more than likely be into football so get FIFA 08 if you don't have it.

Summary: Liebe User, schon lange gibt es auf allen erdenklichen Konsolen einen regelrechten Kampf um die Nummer eins unter den US - Sportarten: So ist es auch bei der NBA, der Basketballliga der USA. Hier duellieren sich EA Sports mit "NBA Live" und 2kSports mit den "NBA 2k" Ablegern Jahr für Jahr zur gleichen Zeit um die Nummer eins. Mittlerweile gibt es von beiden Ablegern die Version für das Jahr 2009, ich begnüge mich derweil aber mit der 2009er Version. Warum?
