I liked 2k7 better as far as the gameplay is concerned. The dribble is not as smooth as before but they tighten the defense. Thats backwards. Inside layups seem impossible at times but its still better than Live 08 but this year actually took a step down. Graphics are better and the highlights are sweet how you can look at highlights by each player and create a highlight reel. They added slam dunk competition and 3 point(thats the only reason I didnt get it a 5) Its the best basketball franchise out and worth buying.
Graphics are good, game play is questionable compared to last year, but a bit tougher, I think. Dunk contest is the BOMB...especially online dunk and the included REELMAKER... not sure about the 360 version. So good I HAD TO BUY IT!!!
