Product Details:

When the game is on the line and the ball is in your hands, what will you do? Will you penetrate, drive the lane and rise above the rim for a monster dunk, or find an opening on the perimeter and sink a game-winning three? Take control of the game with a full arsenal to win the one-on-one match-up from every spot on the floor with NBA LIVE 08.

Taking a page out of NBA STREET Homecourt's book, NBA LIVE 08 introduces Quickstrike Ballhandling. This intuitive gameplay mechanic is mapped to the right analog stick and gives you the direct responsiveness you need to perform a full repertoire of ankle-breaking ball-handling moves that let you dominate on the perimeter.

Pass the ball inside and win the battle in the post with all-new 'own the paint' post play for the big men down low. Use the new shot-countershot control to string together combos of fakes and shots to fool your defender into committing and create space for the game-defining bucket.

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.

  • 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 easierto 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.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from This Game is Terrible First off, let me say I am a huge fan of the NBA franchise, but this game sucks. You cannot play D and the fouls are so infrequent and inconsistant that it makes the game rediculously frustrating. I just finished breakiing my controler because I blew a 20 point lead with 3 minutes left because all of a sudden, the way I had been playing the whole game got fouls called left and right, as well as my D just completely giving up. Don'teven get me started on the coaching options. Lets just put it this way, for the whole game I wanted LeBron to gaurd Kobe, and in all options for the game it said he was, but out on the court I had Wally Szerbiach gaurding him, which allowed him to have a 50 point triple double. I used to love these games, now everytime I play them I leave frustrated and disapointed in EA.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good basketball game for the occasional gamer. This game is the BOMB for the occasional video game player but,for the big gamer it would be too easy.I found the game was way to easy for me and I could win the game 100-0.In my opinion,a game you intended to play alot shouldn't be that way.It should a offer a challenge to the gamers that make corporations like EA Games so big with their dedication to video games.The players are top-notch.The graphics are excellent.Same goes for the sound and controls.The camera angles made me think that I changed the channels on my TV and the Celtics were playing the Lakers,but once again the challenge is something they pretty much skipped over.Overall,I would recommend this game to my friends.So,go out and get this game,today.It really would make a perfect addition to any game collection.
