NBA Live 08
worst game ever
this game is just terrible the graphics are really unrealistic the fouls just git called the whole time
a lot of fun.
this game is so much fun. the graphics aren't very good. they were made to look too real. gameplay could be better. it's too hard too score. the sound is perfect. the soundtrack is amazing!!!! this is one of the best games ever made. everyone should get it.
the go to moves are cool, 2k6 was better than live 06 and 2k7 was better than live 07 but live 08 finally got better
For Casual Players
I actually really enjoyed this game for both PS2 and Xbox 360. the game plays is fun. the All-Star weekend is fun along with the freestyle challenges. the graphics are good and i have had no problems with sound or anything else. i fully recommend this to causal players.
This Game is Terrible
First off, let me say I am a huge fan of the NBA franchise, but this game sucks. You cannot play D and the fouls are so infrequent and inconsistant that it makes the game rediculously frustrating. I just finished breakiing my controler because I blew a 20 point lead with 3 minutes left because all of a sudden, the way I had been playing the whole game got fouls called left and right, as well as my D just completely giving up. Don'teven get me started on the coaching options. Lets just put it this way, for the whole game I wanted LeBron to gaurd Kobe, and in all options for the game it said he was, but out on the court I had Wally Szerbiach gaurding him, which allowed him to have a 50 point triple double. I used to love these games, now everytime I play them I leave frustrated and disapointed in EA.
A good basketball game for the occasional gamer.
This game is the BOMB for the occasional video game player but,for the big gamer it would be too easy.I found the game was way to easy for me and I could win the game 100-0.In my opinion,a game you intended to play alot shouldn't be that way.It should a offer a challenge to the gamers that make corporations like EA Games so big with their dedication to video games.The players are top-notch.The graphics are excellent.Same goes for the sound and controls.The camera angles made me think that I changed the channels on my TV and the Celtics were playing the Lakers,but once again the challenge is something they pretty much skipped over.Overall,I would recommend this game to my friends.So,go out and get this game,today.It really would make a perfect addition to any game collection.
Actually Better than ever. Even better than 2k!
I've played both 2k8 and Live 08 and I have to say, " this year Live has exceed my expectations." Don't be fooled by screen shots printed in magazines and web pages. The visuals and mechanics are both actually better than 2k this year. I'm usually very cynical when it comes to live. This year, the ice skating movements, and unfair/unforgiving computer AI system is out. Instead you get an impressive modern day simulator that surpasses its predecessors. My only concern is whether or not it will deliver a good online experience as well as other reasons to play after a good season mode.
wow i cant believe live sux like years to come and b4

Better than 2k8-BY FAR
I've been an NBA live fan for forever, but for the past 2 years it has been terrible, lay-ups through the back board and sloppy ball handling, but this year ive played the NBA Live demo and the 2k8 demo and NBA live is as close to real life gamplay as it gets, the ball handling is amazing, the post moves are all realistic no more layups through the back board while nba 2k8s graphics are terrible, layups through the bottom of the rim, and glitches galore, NBA LIVE IS BACK, and the best basketball game to date.
nba 08 smashes 2k8
I played the demo on both of them..I loved live 08. the graphics are outstanding, player details are amazing!! the play seemed pretty smoothed. I am so excited about this game.. then I played the demo for 2k8..... terrible !! it plays and looks like xbox and playstation 2 graphics..
