Summary: NBA 2K8 is similar to NBA 2K7 some slight changes in player improvement movements various modes and graphics all for the better it's the best track listing of all the NBA 2K games that I've played $5.40 is a bargain worth it.
Summary: This game is great to unlock easy achievements for XBOX 360 users. In a day where most achievements have to be earned online, this game offers less than 100 points for online use. I picked up 395 points in one game. LXLUTHR on XBOX Live
Summary: I liked this one a little bit better than the last one. But I don't like how you still have to change the settings in terms of the strengths of the team. To me, it should automatically save, for example, the coaching setting for auto and or manual timeouts and/or substitutions.
Summary: In the last review I was overly harsh on the game! In this review I give it more credit for being great. It's definitely better than 2k7, but I could not find a dribble move button to shake defenders which makes it difficult to make shots and drive to the lane without being called for a charge.
Summary: I enjoyed 2K7 very much and 2K8 was definitely on my short list of 360 games I would get. For the most part NBA 2K8 does not disappoint, but other than graphic improvements, I really don't a drastic improvement over 2K7. This is not to say 2K8 is a let down, because its not.
Summary: This years version of NBA 2K is definitely a step above any basketball game that has been released to date. The juke system while not as innovative as Live is still easy to use for beginners and has the level of complexity to keep gamers digging for extra moves.
