Rated 0 out of 10 by childish what was they thinking
i hope it would be better then the last live because 07 was a rast of my money first i bought one and end up buying the 2k7,the dunk contest was the same as the others,the only thing i liked on the live07 was theloading ang the graphics, the next game need to change their whole game around if they want to beat 2k and the worst thing they did on the game was take the 247 off and the create player really sucks they should add more items other then shoes all the time it would be nice if they made their 247 more of a street look the wearing just gym clothes and the story mode to be more as a storymode with more or any cutsceens rather then just make it a play for a while then get bored. i realy like live better but this year it let me down ihope it make this improvements if they wont more money and not lose it to 2k7 so to like i say STEP YO GAME UP OR GO HOME or whatever
Rated 0 out of 10 by DiAngelo T NYC Live vs. 2k8
Live has come along way but has a long way to go. The dunks and lay ups are extremely fast and unrealistic. It is impossible to time a block on a lay up or dunk because on defense you jump slowly to block but on offense you jump quickly to dunk.... go figure. Further more the hot spots looked to be a revolutionary idea. But 2k8 stole this idea and made it 10 times better because they have a cellphone reception bars that grow and shrink automatically and change colors when a player is in the zone. Contrasting to live where you have to press a button to see the hot spots.... If you like similation hoops 2k8 has revamped that with all new 2 man games. sending particular players to curl off screens or post up and of course the pik and role, This year you pick which players you want to do perform these activities
Rated 1 out of 10 by CheesePuff90 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 8 out of 10 by The Beast-2000 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.
Rated 0 out of 10 by jon nba 2k8 is gonna be better again
NBA live 08 is not going 2 be good. believe i played nba live through out my and last nba live 07 really let me down,so i bought nba 2k7 dat game is so sweet it wasnt dat great on ps2 or xbox but its great on 360.nba live makes da gameplay looks like everybody on da court is daydreaming and 2k make it looks so smooth like da game speed of phoenix suns and how every body shoots,and i just dont get it why r they tryin 2 add new features on a garbage game,it dosent matter bout teams it matters bout da gameplay .EA just tryin2 get more teams likes usa team and all other 6 international teams but da thing is thhey change da gameplay instead of adding new features 2 da game.
Rated 0 out of 10 by moneyfast04 supperstar mode?
i think the game would alot better if they put in supperstar mode in live like they have in madden i mean if its in football put it in basketball 2 4 something new i think ea sports would alot more respect if they listin to the fans of their games 2 and i think supperstar mode would be a perfect fit 4 live to get rite back on top wit 2k sports i think supperstar would be good because then u can make your own player the way u want 2 and see what team likes the way u play n how u act on and off the court.... please think bout really putting this in live 08 i think its would really make the game a hit for ea sports and the fans both....
Rated 0 out of 10 by a live fan make the game more real and with superstar mode
add things to live 08 like creating your own stadium and all star weekend. it also needs more emotion from the players and fans like players showing more excitment like jumping off the bench, celerations, ect. And you should be able to get the crowd and add superstar moder please i know live does not want 2k8 to be better them them so add small things like superstar mode have fights when it is a hard foul make it real as you guys can think of like if somebody on a team doesnt like the team have them wanted to be traded to a other team or somethin please listin to the fans of live to make the game worth buying... !!!
Rated 0 out of 10 by collegeballer22 nba live is back everyone
Well i have downloaded the demo, and I am here to tell you that NBA Live is back. This was the most realistic basketball game to date. I threw NBA live 07 out the window and went with 2k. Not this year though, this game is unreal, when you play with lebron, if you fade he does his shot and its perfectly on. Or Tony Parkers floater in the lane. This game has really stepped up and graphically there will be nothing that can challenge this. I coach and play basketball as well and the gameplay is unreal, the helpside defense, tough shots, the blending animations with contact in the year. Once again, look out
Rated 0 out of 10 by Youngfly Actually Better than ever. Even better than 2k!
I've played both 2k8 and Live 08 and I have to say, " this year Live has exceed my expectations." Don't be fooled by screen shots printed in magazines and web pages. The visuals and mechanics are both actually better than 2k this year. I'm usually very cynical when it comes to live. This year, the ice skating movements, and unfair/unforgiving computer AI system is out. Instead you get an impressive modern day simulator that surpasses its predecessors. My only concern is whether or not it will deliver a good online experience as well as other reasons to play after a good season mode.
