4.0 out of 5 stars Don't expect much... December 28, 2007
Platform for Display:PlayStation2
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
When getting the yearly updates for sports games on last gen systems.. you really shouldn't expect groundbreaking or breathtaking new features. What you should expect is... essentially the previous year's game... with little improvements here and there. I myself found 2k8 to have smoother game play than 2k7 and worth the 20$ I paid for it. My advice is.. is you have 2k7, you should probably save the 20-30 bucks that 2k8 costs. My rating for the game is solely based on my experience playing it.. not on how much it improved from the previous year.

PROS:
- New dunk/shooting animations
- Slightly crisper graphics and game play

CONS:
- Exact same intro (fan reactions, announcing, etc) for every game
- AI, which is touted as "Smarter...brings the NBA to life like never before", is actually retarded as hell. You can win against the Suns or Celts on "Hall of Fame" difficulty by 40.
- No Dunk contest or any of the "new" stuff Next-Gen systems received
- The music is described in one word... crap
- The "Association" game mode is the same of previous years.

In all, the game was still a little more fun than the year before. I would suggest getting it only if you didn't get 2k7. The 2k series is still light years ahead (which is sad) of its competition and definitely more worthwhile because of its game play and price.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best basketball video game! January 6, 2008
Platform for Display:PlayStation2
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I purchased this for my husband for Christmas and he was totally floored. The graphics are amazing and the live action is great. He loves sports video games and this one ranks as one of his favorites. A must have for any video game enthusiast!

4.0 out of 5 stars Cool game, but could use a slight overhaul November 28, 2007
Platform for Display:PlayStation2
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Very subtle additions to this version. It is easier for good rebounders to rebound, and the game's AI defensively has improved overall. However, I played a few games, and noticed that it was harder for me to block shots. Only one game mode has changed as there is now a playoff mode. other than that, the game is virtually unchanged from last year. Definitely could use an All-Star Weekend mode like NBA Live has, and new commentary from the announcers would make the game more interesting as well. Still, the game is very good, and there is not much to criticize here. If you have last year's version, and are looking for sweeping changes, don't bother buying it, or holdout for a used copy. Updated rosters make the game cool for Boston and Denver fans, who added new superstars.

4.0 out of 5 stars BEST GAME FOR PS2!! January 28, 2008
Platform for Display:PlayStation2
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is probably one of the greatest games i have ever played
sure they miss a lot of layups but that can always be fixed by the game sliders

i still dont like the fact that they didnt change the players to their new faces like steve nash with his new hair cut and stuff like that but its pretty good
new signature shots and I LOVE TEH DUNKS THEY ARE AMAZING

this is way better than 2k7 and i definately recommend it especially at this cheap price

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Game February 10, 2008
Platform for Display:PlayStation2
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Bought this game for my son and he is enjoying it. From time to time we play together, but he is starting to learn the game and pick up on some of the teams (Yes!!!). Graphics aren't the greatest and stealing the ball is somewhat easy. Other than that, it is a fun game.

4.0 out of 5 stars NBA 2K8 Gets Nothing But Net! April 13, 2008
By J.M.
Platform for Display:PlayStation2
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is great, but I'll start off with this: It is much, much better for the Xbox 360 and PS3. The graphics on NBA 2K8 aren't that great, but are good enough. The gameplay is what really sticks out in this game. It is easy to see the court, the passing is flawless, and the game has plenty of modes. I really liked how you could pick from retro, regular, and secondary jerseys for your team to wear. The developers really took time to make each player realistic and have their own unique abilities. The commentators are repetitive and annoying, but they are pretty acurate. The controls are pretty simple and are easy to pick up. The biggest dissapointment: NO SLAM DUNK CONTEST!!!!!!!! If they added that, I would have given this game 5 stars! If you have the chance, spend the extra money and buy it for the 360 or PS3. The graphics are much better than the PS2, and there's a slam dunk contest. NBA 2K8 is the best b-ball game for 2008 right now, so any basketball fan should buy it-especially for the good price.

The Product Features Amazon have needs to be changed.The PS2 version doesn't have the Dunk Contest and 3pt shootout.2K didn't make any changes to the players and the Assocation.All your getting is a roster update and a few new Dunks,new player animations and sig shots.
