NBA Live 08 Xbox 360 Review

 

NBA Live 08 may have a long way to go to be the best NBA game on the market, but it is far and away a significant improvement from last year's abysmal NBA Live 07.

While NBA Live 08 is still not a game for the hardcore hoops fan, it is a decent and much improved game that less-demanding players can get a lot of enjoyment out of. If EA Sports can smooth out the gameplay, continue to improve ball physics, do...

Starting to gain respect once again.

There is plenty to do in Live 08 that will keep you playing far into the night and all season long. You have Quick Play, Dynasty Mode, All Star Weekend games (including Dunk, 3pt, and Rookie games), Online modes including Leagues, and even the ability...

It's no surprise that NBA Live 08 is a big improvement from last year's version, because quite frankly, it would be nigh-impossible not to be. What is a surprise, however, is just how much of an improvement NBA Live 08 is. With last year's abomination,...

NBA Live 08 is in serious contention for Best Basketball Game this year. That just shows you how much improved 08 is after the disaster of 07. Who says EA doesn't listen?

s next-gen debut. For starters, the game's visuals have been dramatically improved. Everything from the floors to the crowds to swaying of the players' jerseys looks better. The animations have also been significantly improved as well. Players don't...

For starters, the opposing AI really doesn’t seem all that bright. It’s still way too easy to drive through the defense to get up to the basket. In fact, most players’ biggest issues will have nothing to do with getting off the shot clean, but rather...

You're up for a change in basketball games this year

You're not sure if you should buy it this year or hold off for polishing next year

Back from the dead, Live restores a franchise and lifts the lid off the rim

Tight controls ; FIBA World Tournament ; Online leagues

Sorta ordinary-looking ; Foul shot mechanics ; Dynasty is cluttered

EA's best basketball game of this generation is fun to play, but still far from an All-Star.

Fun to run up the scores with flashy offensive moves; defensive assist alleviates frustration; slick visuals

Sliders don't work; minimal FIBA options; missing easy shots; frustrating slam dunk contest

Pop the champagne and order some championship rings. Live 08's a winner.

See more screens from NBA Live 08 ... We enjoy working for our points, yet at the same time, the increased difficulty makes winning frustrating. Shooting, for example, takes a lot of patience, especially when guys like Tony Parker, Tracy McGrady and...
