    Great Game!

    Rated on April 02, 2008 by Xbox800

    NBA 2k8 is a great game. It is similar to NBA 2k7 and i expected it to be a better. The graphics have improved. It is a fun game to play with your friends. The dunk contest is a little hard but it...

    One of the best-looking basketball games, and the depth is incredible.

    Rated on April 15, 2008 by WarrinPro

    This game really focuses on little details like how players bounce the ball before shooting the free-throw shot, cheerleaders, mascots (although they are not exactly like the real ones), bench players...

    This game isn't that good.

    Rated on April 21, 2008 by Kronic23

    I thought this game would be a great basketball game but found out it was just a good game. This game has better gameplay than NBA Live 08. Like when you do a lay up and get fouled your player actuall...

    Probably best sim currently, but it has a lot of issues which really detract from it

    Rated on May 11, 2008 by MrQuest77

    This game is a lot of fun and does a lot of things right. The actual motion of shooting is pretty accurate for each player and the shooting timing is realistic. Players will actually shoot according...

    The best NBA simulation ever!

    Rated on May 02, 2008 by lnehme

    NBA 2k8. An innovative though good game. Despite a few graphically problems, this game simulates the NBA better than other NBA games. Also it has some features, like the Sprite Slam Dunk and The Assoc...

    Why can't they get this right?

    Rated on May 04, 2008 by masterx1059

    I really wanted to love this game. 2k basketball has been so close, in my opinion, to being the best sports simulation of any kind. But there are continuing problems that plague this series each and e...

    Great new features but old gameplay problems still only push the envelope halfway

    Rated on May 29, 2008 by kanye04

    NBA 2K8, not much to say that has not been said last year. Graphics wise the game still continues to impress with every version. The player motions, as well as faces seem to be more accurate than la...

    Arguably the best game of basketball on the market today.

    Rated on June 23, 2008 by Ghost_Warrior

    So I am a sucker for basketball games, I played the hell out of College Hoops 2k7 to the point that I was almost sick of college basketball. I decided it was time to go pro and buy NBA 2k8. For thos...
