    There are no less than 3 basketball sims, and that's too much to have 3 great ones. NBA 2K8, NBA Live 08 and NBA 08 are the rivals in basketball-sim land. But well, only two of them are enjoyable at a...

    This game is better than last year but it's still pretty bad. It is still too easy to dunk and score points. The only thing that has any real meaning is some pretty okay online. Although the graphics ...

    This is a great basketball game. It has unbelievable graphics for a sports game, but gameplay to me is very frustrating.

    Don't believe the bad reviews on this one. At least try the demo if you can. A solid game in all it's 1080p Glory!

    Rated on January 24, 2008 by rob046

    I tried all 3 NBA games for the PS3 (2k8, Live 08, and NBA 08) and I simply liked NBA 08 the best. And it didn't hurt that since I have a 1080P HDTV, which of course gave NBA 08 an additional edge ov...
