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.
who cares about all-star weekend
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.
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
best bball game out there
this is a very realistic game with a nice amount of modes. the graphics are alright but they have some good anomations tht makes it look so real. the presentation is a step down from last year but it still is hangin in there. this is bettr than nba live 08 by a mile it has better gameplay but the graphics are better in live but i prefer gameplay over graphics. it is verty fun online ith not too much lag and great leagues and tournaments a great sports fan would love too egt there hands on this one if they are lookin for it. there is not too many good basketball games out there so it is limited but this one just brings next gen to a whole new level for sports games tht is. they got rid of the 24 7 mode and added the 3 point and dunk contest and previous modes which is a good amount of fun
This game is a must buy!
Nba 2k8's graphics are amazing, you could really see the sweat coming off their faces. In nba live 08 when you look at ray allen it looks like he's just got beat up on the street. In 2k8 he really does look like ray allen as do all the other players! The controls are just the basic ones but one thing I would give a 9 is the jumping. They jump slower than usual! The camera angles are just amazing. It's like you're on the television looking at allen iverson from the top of the court from the slam cam or something. As for the gameplay and season they upgraded a few things also. And I would say it's much, much better than last years 2k7. I don't really know for sure if they had a trigger for the shooting last year, but they do now and it helps a lot. Buy this game today; it's amazing.
How did 2KSports improve on perfection??!
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.
It's Like Your In The Game
I love this game! The graphics were really realistic. You should not miss out on this game. You can play onlin too!
HOLD WHAT YOU GOT SPORTS FANS!!!!!
IT seems to me that so many people out there are die hard EA SPORTS FANS. And they just don't wanna face the facts. 2k8 has smoother game play and its as closest to real as its gonna get in a sports video game for now. I will say that NBA LIVE looks great and it is a huge improvement from last year. But they are taking small steps when they need leaps and jumps to catch up with 2k. so to all the EA fans i say this its cool to be loyal to a company but if you want a great basketball game this year buy 2K8. Or you can do what im doing and just buy them both.
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.
