5.0 out of 5 stars 2K8 is still the best basketball game around October 12, 2007
By M. Su
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Finally got my fix of basketball. Realistic - yes, this is much more realistic compared to Live08 on Wii, even with the motion control on Wii.

Is it worth the $60?
1. Much improved graphics. The motions, shots, falling on the ground, all looks and feels real. Huge improvement on the arena & crowd.
2. Controls are very tight, which is always important for sports games.
3. Camera angels - wow there's a ton of em, too many to count.
4. Addition of dunk contest
5. Addition of little things like player option on contract, training camp points, player emotions, it's like fun little side quests on RPGs. You don't have to mess with it, but it's a great diversion.

Just a few complaints
1. Controller setup - there's literally no variation now.
2. Manual - $60 for the game, please give us a little thicker manual with more content.
3. For new comers - there isn't any training or explainations, if you haven't played any of the 2k bb series, might take a while to learn it.

For the BB fans, we gotta get the new version every season. There isn't many simulation choices out there. You've got Live, 2K, NBA by sony - These last few years, Live has been going down hill, though Wii motion is kinda fun, it does get old and tiring. NBA by sony, played the 2007 version, that was beyond bad. Have to 2K would be the preferred choice for a BB fix.

5.0 out of 5 stars PLAIN AND SIMPLE: THE BEST BASKETBALL GAME EVER!!!! December 3, 2007
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
First off, I have ALWAYS been a strong supported of EA SPORTS games all across the board -- until now. My friend has NBA LIVE 08, which is a good game in its own right, but NBA 2K8 BLOWS ITS DOORS OFF!!!!

Here's how it is better:

* The graphics are much better than LIVE 08 - you really feel, more than any other basketball game, that you are watching (participating!) in a REAL NBA game!

* The play mechanics are flawless. (One of my buddies complained about not having a 'dunk button' (in 2K8, square is used for ALL shooting, whether it's for a jump shot, a layup, or a dunk). But the shoot button is flawless - and also prevents you from doing something that happens to everyone at some point in NBA Live - inadvertantly hitting the dunk button when you're trying to shoot a 3-pointer).

* The features are AWESOME - the Dunk Contest and 3-Point contest are great fun - especially if you're having a party!

* The multiplayer is incredible fun. I played an amazing game with 3 friends, doing a little two-on-two.

* The added little touches are A+++: The mascots, the cheerleaders, and GET THIS -- a REAL TIME scoreboard that posts score of REAL LIFE sports and carries off-the-wire sports news!!

Again, I reiterate that I've always been in EA Sports' corner - until now. I will also say that I bought EA Sports NHL 08 for PS3, and that blows the doors off of NHL 2K8.

So if you want a great hockey game, buy NHL 08. It is the best hockey ever. And if you want to play the hands-down BEST basketball game made for any system EVER, buy NBA 2K8.

Don't believe me? RENT IT AND YOU WILL SEE - AND THEN RUN OUT AND BUY IT!!!!!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars A solid basketball game with some room for improvement February 3, 2008
By ....
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Having just received my new PS3 I was excited to play this game. Although I still can't get my HDMI to work, the graphics are stunning. I found the gameplay to be difficult but very realistic at first, then easier to get used to. The bad part is its shortcomings such as continous shoddy defense get annoying. Overall, here are the highs and lows.

Graphics 10/10: The graphics even without my HDMI working still look perfect.

Animations 6/10: This game has realistic animations, but not enough of them. Players will do the same dumb falling motion when they get the ball stolen while driving. If you attack the basket at about a 45 degree angle with the defender running parallel it always gets blocked with the same animation. Players sometimes won't recognize defenders in there face and will put up a soft lay-up that is easily blocked in front of the basket.

Fun 9/10: This game still has the monster arcade style dunks but has much more realism. Its cool to watch signature styles of players you see on tv in real life.

Offense 9/10: Not enough animations hurts offense, but the wide variety of plays are helpful. Players don't run the pick and roll that effectively, but they will cut to the basket and get open jumpers. Scoring in the post is too easy, but thats mainly because of defense.

Defense 5/10: The defense really bogs down this game. First of all, help defense doesn't seem to exist very often. Its almost impossible to contest an inside shot without fouling someone. Post defenders, even players with a 99 in that category, will let players like Dwight Howard establish deep position without a contest. The CPU makes too many of its inside shots to off-set these shortcomings, I often have to handicap them.

If you're going to buy one basketball video game, this should be it. I can't believe users are even comparing this game to EA's Live 08. It's not even close. 2K8 is a significant upgrade over 2K7, and Live 08 is still playing catch-up and has a long way to go. Download and play the 2 demos first and you'll quickly see which is the better game.

NOTE: I omitted Sony's entry, NBA 08, from the discussion because it's unacceptably horrible for Next-Gen.

Here's a quick breakdown of 2K8:

PROS
1) Graphics are fantastic. The animations are buttery smooth and this is the part of the game where 2K8 outshines Live 08. The players in Live 08 seem to move in a very clunky fashion. Just to give you an example in 2K8, players' momentum often carries them forward, so when they change direction, you can literally see their weight shifting and it takes a split-second for them to begin heading in a different direction - it's very lifelike.
2) AI is excellent - the game is challenging on the default level - fast-break-oriented teams like the Suns are tough to keep up with, even with good teams like Garnett's Celtics!
3) Controls are easy-to-learn and very responsive. The SIMAXIS approach to shooting free-throws seems improved and more responsive.
4) Dunk contest - Jump over chairs, cars, and other objects that you can have placed on the court. Use legendary dunkers like Dominique Wilkins, in addition to rookies like James "Flight" White.
5) Playground ball - it's not quite NBA Street Homecourt, but being able to play everything from 1-on-1 to 5-on-5 on the blacktop is a nice bonus.

CONS:
1) As mentioned by others, the instructional booklet is thin on content, so you end up reading a lot of the instructions on the TV screen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great title
I also appreciate them abandoning the DRM scheme for PC with Bioshock so I give them an extra star for that. Plus I hate everything EA now.
