"Much of the same, slight improvements."
3 stars"

Much the same as the last few itterations of this title, gameplay is poor with players feeling like they skate all over the floor rather than run. Unrealistic player physics and the graphics are far too shiny to be considered realistic looking. Keep on trying EA, cause you're still way behind 2K in terms of gameplay and graphics.

"Better than last years version.."
3 stars"

After ditching Live for 2K in 2006, I haven't been enticed to look back. I thought this installment from EA Sports would have me going back but, it's still a long way behind 2K when it comes to gameplay and the fluidity of players moving and working as a team. I rented it and from the beginning wasn't impressed. The player movement is robotic, probably fom the footplanting they introduced to their game this year. The player models are equally as bad. There's been alot of debate about the look or graphics comparison between 2K and Live, but 2K's models and faces look more realistic. The only difference is the skin textures, Live has outdone 2K this year. Other than that, I can't think of anything Live has improved on from last year.

If you're after a basketball sim 2K is the way to go. EA stepped up this year but still lags behind the competition.

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.
