NBA Live 08
Sorry, I hate myself
I just realized that I dissed the game, then gave it a six. This is what I really meant. P.S. Buy this game for 360, PS3, or PC. It's actually good on those.
It's OK, but far from the best. The running confuses me. I don't get how you're supposed to run. If it does it for you it doesn't do any good. Other than that, the controls are good.
Where's the in-depth sprts game for we? NOT HERE
EA Sports really slacked off with the Wii version of NBA08. The key game modes are missing that are in the other systems verions, the create a player is missing, and EA thinks that sports fans that want motion want a party game!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Overall, this game is average, and I'm being nice saying it that way. I'm a big fan of sports games that involves the Wii motion system, but trading 90 percent of the games features for it is stupid and unacceptable EA. And now EA has stopped making NBA games for Wii. Go figure!
The best nba game for the wii
Nba live 08 is a great game.Is way better then any nba game for the wii
This game doesn't really have good graphics and doesn't live up to the wii's potential. This game's controls are all right but noot the best. When I first got the game i was trying to shoot like you would with a regular basketball and shot a lay up every single time from three point land. Once you get used to it it's all right. One of the negatives that this game has is when you go up for a lay up or dunk and hits off the side of the hoop and goes out of bounce. EA really needs to fix that. Another negative was that there was no starting lineups in this game. I wanted to see how it would come up but there wasn't any. Also when you call a timeout you will realize that there is no coach. That didn't ruin the game but it was weird. It was pretty awesome to see that you could hit almost every three you took though. If you like basketball then go out and get this game right now. You will love the older all-star teams that you can play with and you will like the season mode even though there is no dynasty. Once you catch on this game is really fun.
pretty bad /but for the first wii basketball game
I sencerly don't like this game, but it is the first game for the wii. The shooting is so fake i was shooting 3 pointers and i made every single shot.The stealing its pretty cool but it only steals when it feels like it. The blocking is impossible. I guess the passing is ok, but it gets intercepted a lot. To make it worse it dosent have dynasty mode, or create a player; and the slam dunk contest is so overrated and boring. And for last but definetly not least the graphics are like nba live 05 for the ps2. I really think sincerly that this game is definetly not worth what it costs. If you want a basketball game for the wii badly, and this is the only choice right now i suggest waiting for nba live 09 it may be way better, remember nba live 08 is the first basketball game for the wii.
Please Be Better than 07
I am a huge Nintendo fan so I was a little disapointed when Live 7 didn't come out for the GC. I have just gotten my Wii and am waiting on this new NBA Game. I did play 07 on PS2 and hated it. The gameplay and graphics were awful. I am just hoping that Live 08 is more like Live 06 than 07.
super good game
i tried it out already its so good u have to get this game my uncle works for ea sports and i tested it out and man, that game is the best game i've ever had the controls are so real for example, use the remote to shoot and driblle betwwen the legs crossover with the nunchuck man its crazy
this game is going to be so freaken awsome and I can not wait till it comes out because i have neer tried a basketball game on wii and i also think the graphics are going to turn out really awsome and that it is going to be better than madden07 and im just ready to see what kind of stuff that you can do.
First Wii NBA Game!
This is the first time that I've actually bothered to look at an NBA game for a nintendo system because they really only make it best for the Sony systems. I'm wondering how they'll make the controls for it. I hope it's really great because I'm a big fan of basketball and I have the Wii. It won't be as great as the PS3 NBA games (of course) but I hope they make it at least better than the other NBA games on the gamecube. I watched the videos on the official website. How they dress the players into these special uniforms and their go-to moves. It's all pretty cool.
