Watch as Shaq smirks after plays and KG bangs his chest running down court. In addition, new Signature Defensive Styles have been added; Bruce Bowen plays tight all game, Rasheed Wallace steals in the post, and Shane Battier takes charges.

I used to be an NBA Live fan and other EA Sports game, mainly Madden. But I remember playing demos when I bought the PS3 and was comparing what I like better. There was NBA 2K7, NBA Live 07, and NBA 07. 2K7 just was just more realistic to me and had better gameplay. I play it with my little brother and friends, and it's just the small details that make it better then the rest. Players wear their signature shoes and even the real shots that players do. Especially Shawn Marion's horrible looking jumper.

2K8 was fun last year as well, except that lockdown feature really was broken. I can be Shaq and guard Tony Parker or Allen Iverson just by holding down a button. This one improves ont he lockdown defense and none of that Shaq on any point guard defense.

A few things I noticed, which is the same problem 2K8 had, is goaltending is way off. The ball will bounce off the rim or backboard and someone would touch it after and get called goaltending. This usually happens only once every 5 games in 2K8, but already it has happened in about 2 or 3 times in every game I played. Not sure what is up with that.

Also I don't understand what's with all the confusing menus. The menus also was bad, but they tried to change it and seem to have made it worst.

The one main feature that is missing and I don't understand why is, Sixaxis control for the PS3. I don't understand why this was taken out, were they too lazy? Just trying please everyone and make it exactly the same as the 360 version. I mean that's what set it apart from the other games. And made the free throw feel a lot more "real" then using an analog or watching a ball bounce across the backboard. Last year you can either have it on or off so the choice was yours, if you didn't like it.

Every year I look forward to the season opener and a new NBA 2K. This year is no exception, the quality of the upgrades on this game justifies spending $60 on it.

#1 Graphics - I thought 2K8 was good, somehow 2K9 made it even better, even more realistic. Countless times my wife walks past and says there's basketball at this hour?

#2 Controls - The post play controls are really tight, there's a lot of moves and fakes, it may take time to learn and get comfortable with all of it, but once you do, it feels very realistic.

#3 Commentary - Unfortunately this is a bit of a backstep IMO. I liked Steven A. Smith, and there's more bugs than last year like wrong names, wrong teams said in the wrong situation.

#4 Updates - 1 month past the release and there's a big patch out that allows 2K8 to update the roster as soon as the real NBA roster updates, now that's really cool. That one was function EA's NBA Live had and missing from 2K.

#5 Association - It's very deep, yet can be fully automated as well. The trades system got easier to manage, option to automate parts of the scouting or draft if you don't want to micromanage everything.

Other than Yao Ming getting blocked by AI, the rest of the game feels very realistic. Overall, well worth the $60 spent, now it's another year of waiting until 2K10 comes out. Hm... Wonder if they'll change the name, that doesn't sound right. Two K Ten.

This game is the finest to come out yet. The detail is awesome. For those that notice the little things, you will be impressed. The crowd all do different movements, are dressed different and can be seen walking in and out as if they are going to consessions, etc. . The player movements are improved and they look more real than ever. Muscle tone and small details are enhanced. Probably the biggest thing I noticed was the individual players have their own shot movements just as they do in real life.

Great game, very authentic and fun. This is my second 2K sports game after Top Spin 3 and I really like how they go for the simulation aspect rather than arcade action. None of the hold down the turbo button with infinite stamina or dunking and shooting threes with unbelievable accuracy. Its fun and easy to pick up for the casual gamer but also very deep with all the player moves, controls and options you can customize. Currently I am downloading and messing around with the sliders available and it does make the game a little better than with the default AI difficulty. Each team and player actually feels unique with their signature moves, I love watching the replays after a game highlighting the moves I pulled off! In game graphics and animation are fanastic as well, most people that have seen me playing it always ask if I am watching a game or comment on how realistic it looks. About the only thing I can find wrong with the game is probably the commentary which is inaccurate at times or gets repetitive. The soundtrack and effects though are great and really gives it an NBA style and feel. Overall whether you are a casual or hardcore NBA fan this is one of the few sports game I highly recommend getting.

I've played a lot of basketball games for next gen systems: NBA 2k7, 2k8, NBA 07, 08 and 09, NBA Live 07 and 08. Though I'm missing a few and some I only played demo's of, this game really impressed me. It makes you feel you're at a basketball game. There's so much variety in the stadiums and backgrounds and player movements that you don't get bored by the cookie cutter player models of sony's NBA series [which isn't up to par with their MLB stuff] and EA's somewhat broken gameplay system-though 08 wasn't as bad as people say. In fact EA could take a tip from 2k and focus on who's in the stands more. This game though a little tricky to master is sooooooo fun 2 player and so enthralling one player. I haven't got online, but I love it nonetheless. I bought this not too long ago and though NBA 2k10 will be awesome this year. You can't go wrong having the this breakout title in the 2k series. Great game.
