There is not much new here. 2k7 was great, and so is 2k8.The only new feature is the Sportscast Sim option for the association mode. It lets you sim a game possession-by-possession, and even call timeouts and sub players. The dunk contest would have been nice on ALL systems, but it doesn't ruin the game not having one. The graphics are very good, and game play is fun and fast-paced. There is not much else about this game other than it has a great soundtrack and modes.
I just bought this game and a played it for a while but there isnt much of a change. 2k7 was fun but i was hoping for something new. alot of the features and animations on the 360 version are not included in the game. If u are expecting the dunk contest it is not in the PS2 version.
ok until now i played the nba live series not the 2k series. dumb. 2k8 is wayyyyy better then live 08. more realistic looking players... graphics are much better, and the players shoot like they do in real life. (shawn marion flings the ball like he does in real life). i wud highly recommend getting this over live, however the controls are different and mite take some getting used2.
