I read alot of good reviews of this game, so i was pretty excited when it showed up.. but the game play on this game is terrible. honestly it is one of the worst basketball games ever. much better off to go with the new live 08 or nba 08 played it two full basketball games and am sending it back.

Live '08 Rules

I am so glad that I purchased NBA Live'08 before this title. In my opinion, Live'08 has really stepped up it's game this year. Not only are the graphics astonishing as usual, but the game play this year is fluent and extremely lifelike. It's like actually watching a real game. 2K8 still doesn't match up in graphics, the players look more blurry facially. The gameplay is smooth and fluent, but the graphics are a mess....Live Rules!!!

I thought I was playing 2k6 when I played my first game. The graphics are semi a step up, but they end up looking less smooth and not better by any means. Like everyone else has stated, the gameplay is terrible. By gameplay, I mean, they try to simulate real basketball which was done but it is way to choppy and it is almost like the computer is playing for you giving you little options.

If you want a the best simulation basketball game this one is for you, but if you want to have a little fun when playing realistic basketball; Go pick up Live.
