"Genuinely fun!"
4 stars"

I had pre ordered this game about a month ago and was really looking forward to the release date coming up. A few days before I thought I would have a look on IGN etc to see what the verdict was. I was shocked and a bit worried to find that they had given the game poor ratings and basically had only negative feedback about it. However, many personal reviews had been really positive and so I wasnt really sure what to think.

Hoping for the best, I was still happy on release date last friday. Thankfully I was not disappointed.

Pro's

  • The controls are great and not too hard to pick up. I particularly like the use of the D-pad for passing, making it easy to run plays how you want to.
  • Charging through the defenders under the hoop and then dunking is actually very satisfying
  • The graphics look good when in play
  • The hot spot concept works well, you soon get to know which of your players are best shooting from different parts of the court
  • Up to 4 player multiplayer offline and 6 player online! I am yet to play online but the lack of a friend code system has to be a good start!!
  • Family Play control scheme and also in-game tips from your chosen Mii makes this game very easy for beginners but with the advanced controls and difficulty settings, makes for a very challenging game when you are ready
  • Sound track is great

Con's

  • A bit gutted that there is no Create-a-Player function
  • Graphics could be a bit better
  • Backcourt violation rule doesnt seem to work?

Overall this game is very fun and also addictive but with a little more work could have been a truly great game

Description

Providing an unrivaled level of authenticity to the sport, NBA LIVE 08 introduces hot spots, where real NBA shot data is used to illuminate the locations on the floor where your players are most effective. Couple this with all-new signature go-to moves that capture the essence of the NBA’s best, and you can now play the game on a console like you see it from the stands.

On the perimeter, in the paint, and with complete authenticity to the sport of basketball, dominate with your go-to move with NBA LIVE 08.

Features:
  • All-New Quickstrike Ballhandling-Whether you’re pushing the ball upcourt or backing down a defender inside, quicker, more responsive ball-handling moves allow you to break down opponents and take complete control of your game with the right analog stick.
  • Own the Paint-Put the ball in the hands of your big men and go head-to-head in the lane. With all-new moves and counters, including pump fakes, drop-steps, and spins, post play has never been better.
  • See Who’s Hot and Who’s Not-Using actual NBA shot tracking data, know who to feed and who to defend based on a shooter’s Hot Spots, an all-new on-screen overlay showing you exactly where a player is most dangerous.
  • Dominate with Your Go-To Move-Every player has a go-to move that they consistently go to when the game is on the line. Now the signature go-to moves of the NBA’s best players have been realistically re-created to help you score when it counts. That patented step back jumper? A fadeaway with the big leg kick? If it’s in the game, it’s in the game.
  • A New Look and Feel-5-on-5 gameplay has never looked so good. Featuring enhanced player spacing and behavior logic in the half-court, upgraded passing and rebounding mechanics, and an all-new two player interaction engine.
  • All-New Shooting Mechanics-From deep three-point shots well beyond the arc to 10-foot jumps shots in the paint, every shot attempt has been redesigned to provide more fluid, realistic results. Dunks and lay-ups are now assigned to the same button command making highlight reel plays even easier to perform.
  • The NBA Goes Live-Player faces, team uniforms, and authentic arenas jump to life behind the power of next-generation game graphics. Whether you’re working on your game in the revamped practice gym or playing in front of a packed house, feel what it’s like to be an NBA superstar.
  • Like Butter - Running at a smooth 60 frames per second, NBA LIVE 08 is as close as you can get to the court, without dropping dime for courtside seats.
