NBA 2K7 was amazing, I'm still playing it for 360 and i couldn't be happier. I can't wait until 2K8 comes out. I'm gonna get it right away. As for the flaws I wish they would fix, I definitely think that the hovering jerseys need to go, as well as the disappearing uniform trick. I can't tell you how many times I have seen Josh Smith's shorts or jersey disappear in the middle of game play. The all-star weekend would be a cool addition to the game, but I hate it in Live so what makes me think I would like it in 2K? I wish that they would put in better things to develop rookies. I like that you can develop players, but i got a season and a half into a Hawks franchise and nobody went up more than 2 points. I think that if they put in better development, better Free Agency (top players leave too often from teams they have been with forever i.e. Tim Duncan left the Spurs) and put in more draft day trades. All in all, 2K8 will be the best basketball game yet.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Sims4ever Best NBA simulation game
This game is great.The game play is great. The association mode is great. Take your players to practice and win games. The character customization is great. You get to choose your players stats and make them great 3pt shooters. The playoffs are also great. You can enter your created team or just enter one of the original NBA teams. The rosters are obviously no longer accurate, but that doesn't really matter. The sound quality is great. Every time you make a shot the crowd boos (if your not the home team) and yell if you are. The controls are difficult in the beginning, but you get used to them. Playing with four players is fun to. Go on against each other or play in the same team. You can also play in the seasons. Everything about this game is great. The graphics are good, but when your game gets scratched or old, the announcers start saying the wrong things. And the top three plays and Jordan brand player gave it a more life like experience.

Aite nba 2k7 is tight. Im stll playin it but 2k8 is gonna need some more improvmenets. Even simple things like the players not havin under arm hair. Now come on they grown men. There were flaws like their shirts comin off and stuff and the refs takin forever to pass the player the ball wen they throw it in. Tht needs ta be worked on but for the game itself there shold be an all star weekend. U should be able ta do stuff n the all star game like n real life like wen shaq dunked it on a free throw. There has ta be fights tho fo real. if its a bad call and u wana take a risk in a season and hit the playa then let em do it. U shold be able to tlk back to the refs on a bad call and be able ta get thrown out. Tht makes it interesting.It shold let u kinda be the coach n some situations like wen u lose a game and go in the locker room and they stopped interviewing the player of the game. I no it will be tight but those are some suggestions

Downloaded the 2K8 demo from Marketplace and I have to admit. I was thoroughly impressed!! The gameplay is smooth and the graphic animation is flawless. The player models (and mugs) have been upgraded (Spurs, Cavaliers are only playable teams) and they look SUPERB!! The player models have been 'slimmed' down and look 100% more realistic. The overall crowd animation and game environment is much more active than any other release to date. Realizing that this is a watered-down demo, I can't wait to pick up the polished version in a few weeks!!! (No audio on demo so, I couldn't tell if it was upgraded or not). p.s., downloaded NBA Live 08 and visually, it looks really good (2K8 looks more picture realistic though). The player intros are very similar to the one's in Madden 08 - which isn't a bad thing. The framerate has improved but, its still a 2nd place effort compared to NBA2K8.
Rated 0 out of 10 by Game Expert It's time for a nba 2k legend mode
For the makers of 2k8 expand ur creations.........ur game is already better than live itself. Like make each areana have it's own areana announcer. Have a Nba 2k8 legend mode..saying somewhat like ur player(tht u create) goes threw the life of of the average nba player to becoming an nba legend. Before becoming a legend u go to work outs and do summer league for teams. If the scouts think u are not nba ready u will have to go to the d-league to prove tht u r ready for the nba. Also for nba 2k8 legend mode u can live in a house and drive 2 and from the game .Also expand on player lock by making the person in control of the player on and off the court. Have more shoes like everyshoe tht player has ever worn make tht an option on the game. And also keep the shoe color change but be able to change different parts of the shoe.
Rated 10 out of 10 by pakman best game ever
This game is the best 2k8 nba game ever. It feels like you're actually in the game. It's better than Live because of the defense; the defense in Live doesn't give you any competition and on 2k8 it does. The only thing bad about it is the music, but you don't play for the music, you play it for the fun of it. The greatest thing to happen to the game was the nba weekend. So I think this game is really fun and exciting to play. I think everyone in the nba fan zone should have one of these games, because it's the best nba game ever. They got more emotional commentary and they make it more realistic every year they make the game. The game is a lot of fun, and it's exciting to play on franchise mode. It is fun also to play the weekend three point shootout, dunking contacts, and the all-star weekend.
Rated 0 out of 10 by the champ Some helpful additions
i fell in love with 2k7 cause i always played "live" but when my i seen the signature shots and far better gameplay it would be hard to play "live" again even though gilbert arenas makes it intriguing---some improvements however is due like the ref taking too long to past the ball, glitches in jerseys and shorts like they naked, more handle options to take defenders one on one, up the detail on player faces like make it more clearer, the ability to challenge the refs foul calling during the game that can affect the game flow, and the franchise mode needs better sidebars like when you trying to pull of a blockbuster trade have both teams cap numbers available in order to adjust your proposal, add on more features like shoes and more throwback jerseys, a owner mode and possibly a better intro for the home teams.

If you're wondering which is better, NBA Live 08 or NBA 2K8, 2K8 is the choice. Even though Live 08 may have better graphics, 2K8 dominates gameplay. The controls are easy to get use to and the shot stick comes in handy. The gameplay is a lot smoother than Live 08 and every single player in this game has their own shot style. To Shawn Marion's ugly shot to Brent Barry's quick shot, this add-on to the game will make every single game different. Even on the free throw line everybody has their own formation. I was and still am a happy owner of this game. The only thing I was dissapointed in was that they didn't have a superstar or Hall of Fame mode like in Madden. But they did take out that stupid 24/7 mode they had on 2K7. Overall this is one of the greatest basketball games I've played in a long time.
Rated 0 out of 10 by superman101989 What would make NBA 2k8 better?
first of all, i agree with anyone who says that lebron should be on the cover of nba 2k8. its about time he should be on the cover of something else other thana poster. what would really make 2k8 raw is the 24/7. if they could make it so that u just come out of college and are being drafted, pretty much like madden 07 on 360, for those who have played it before. start off from scratch, like signing an agent then going to a few practices and then to the nba combine like weight lifting and practicing in a gym. then finally you get drafted to what ever team,and as the season progresses you continue to build ur attributes. most importantly nba2k8 should have better dunks, slam dunk contest, three point shootout, and a playstation skills challenge. that is what should be on the upcoming game nba 2k8.
