NBA Live 08 (Wii)

 

NBA Live's first appearance on the Wii is a complete disaster.

Soaring to the rafters while keeping your knees intact

Easy to play ; International tourneys ; Historic all-star teams

Controls aren't tight ; Mediocre visuals ; No franchise mode

NBA Live 08

 

The EA Sports games have, so far, done a good job of utilising the unique control system that the Wii offers. NBA Live 08 is the latest game to arrive on the system and, for the most part, the game is enjoyable. The controls do take a little getting...

It's difficult to view NBA Live 08 on the Wii as anything more than a decent start. I had few problems with the game's control system but the lack of modes and some AI problems (particularly in regards to defending) prevent the game from being...

NBA Live 08 - Wii Reviews - The Armchair Empire

 

It's safe to say that I gave NBA Live 08 the benefit of the doubt; after all, it's the first NBA Live game to appear on the Wii

for EA and Nintendo

Worst EA Game ever played

 

I am an avid basketball fan and remeber the days of playing NBA Live on the Megadrive whilst spinning the players and flaming dunks to smashing the back board. Now I know that the days of unrealistic game play are gone and we are thrust into a world...

Good But Hard Controls

 

Im not writing to say that it is a bad game because its not its just the controls are a bit hard i didnt get to find out what sprint was and i tried a lot of controls but when you get the hang of some controls it becomes quite a good game, but still...

Avoid

 

Terrible game. The controls are ridiculously bad - EA have actually removed moves because they evidently couldn't figure out how to fit them in with the limited buttons on the wiimote, so now the computer can do spin moves etc and you can't. The...
