October 2nd 2007 was the day i was waiting for. The new basketball video games were out and i was going to walk away with one of them. Most people say that nba 2k8 is the best basketball sim out there, but that game has flaws. They have no real moves that you can make(DRIBBLING OR HANDLING THE BALL). The graphics are good but what PS3 or Xbox360 title doesn't? Worst of all the players on NBA 2k8 have bobbleheads. Now I was a fan of NBA Live but 06, and 07 were terrible and unrealistic and that franchise is headed in the wrong direction. In Live 07 I had Manu Ginobili score 60 and Ray Allen score 70, I mean this game was terrible. So there is this new kid on the block. NBA 08. The graphics are great. This is the only basketball game that runs at a smooth 60 frames per second. This is the only basketball that runs at 1080i for High definition support. The gameplay is solid, much more realistic than its counterparts. The only thing holding this game back is a franchise mode, and that will be on there next year. They didn't throw a bunch of features on a bad game. They started out with a solid game and they are building on that. This is a very solid game I suggest you pick it up.
