After quite a few years of dissapointing releases the NBA Live series has done itself proud with NBA 2008. The biggest improvement being the realistic games play, and the shotting, passing and all-round movement graphics.

GAMEPLAY - Simply outstanding. With 100s of different moves and the control you have over the dribbler with the right analog stick, the gameplay is more realistic then ever. The rebounding battles are fantastic. The new OWN THE PAINT feature is great, with posting up giving you an array of options to use in order to create your shot. The artificial Intelligence is also greatly improved, with defensive covers switching and helping each other out, and back door cuts etc.

GRAPHICS - Looks better than ever. Not as huge an improvement as the gameplay but it really looks great, and the players have their own features and facials are great.

LONGEVITY - Fantastic, you can play untill the end of time with the great dynasty mode with more features than ever, statistics and management options making it even more enjoyable.

FEATURES - The new international mode has been introduced. As yet only 8 countries to choose from but a big step in the right direction with world championship mode. As well as this feature all the usuals, practice, dynasty, all star weekend etc.

SOUND - The commentry in particular is excellent this year. With far less repetitions, and far more natural talk in what is actually happening in front of you.

OVERALL - BUY THIS GAME!! Finally an NBA game with non stop enjoyement and realism, you wont be disapointed.

I definitely have some gripes about this game but they weren't enough to make me put my controller down. It is fun but how much the little things bother you will certainly be a factor in how much you enjoy this game.

GAMEPLAY (the most important part): The controls are nice. I don't have any problems getting my guys to do what I want them to do. The use of the right stick to do crossovers, spins, etc. is nothing new but still works really well.

- The CPU will still violate your personal space when you are trying to maneuver, making it hard to get past them unless you can blow by them before they get to you. As far as the Pro-Hop feature, or whatever it's called, it doesn't seem to work for me. I've coughed up the ball each time I've done it.

- As a previous reviewer mentioned, jumpers are hard to come by and scoring your points in the paint is the optimal way to do it. I have more success with mid-range jumpers than long-range and 3s. One possible reason for this may be the addition of the Hot Zones, which tell you where a player is prone to making/missing shots. I don't pull it up all that often but it's very possible I'm taking shots from the cold zones.

- Easy layups are still missed far too often. The split isn't 50/50 but I'd guess it's somewhere near 80/20 (making/missing).

- Rebounding is more evenly distributed than in past games. I've never been able to grab rebounds and my CPU teammates always got out-rebounded as well. This year your teammates will do a very good job at grabbing those boards to get you started on your fast breaks.

- Fast breaks work pretty well, provided you adjust your Transition Style to allow for more fast breaks.

Every year, it's the same debate. Should I get the newest incarnation of NBA Live with all it's promises of better gameplay than the year before or should I stick with the reliable, yet bland 2k series? Well this year, I actually find myself playing NBA Live 08 more than I do NBA 2k8. That's not a knock to 2k8, but I find Live 08 to be a more straight-forward basketball experience. There are no crazy gimmicks that detract from the gameplay.

So what's new this year? Everything. The game has been completely rebuilt from the ground up with gameplay being the biggest improvement. Low post players can now dominate the paint with a variety of offensive moves (spins, hook shots, pump fakes, etc.) Cross-overs and juke moves using the right thumbstick are more fluid and realistic and new signature moves are also a nice addition. For instance, while holding the right trigger and pushing either the dunk or shoot button, your superstar will pull off a power move only unique to him that increases the chances of having the shot go in. There's even a nice video tutorial during the shoot around session at the main menu which shows each superstar's primary signature move.

The graphics have been given a complete overhaul and surprisingly, I found that the player models in Live 08 were much better than the ones in 2k8. Facial modeling is superb and dead on. EA really went out of their way to create eaThe courts look accurate and are cleanly rendered. The crowds are also very nice and don't resemble spray-painted card board boxes as they do in other sports titles.

Despite the vast improvement in this year's game as opposed to the year before, there are still a couple of glaring problems that are downright maddening. The worst is the ridiculous loading times before a game.
