Featuring revolutionary gameplay, complete with ultra-realistic player moves and emotions, the hardwood is yours for the taking. The cover of EA NBA Live 08 will feature Agent Zero (Gilbert Arenas). Analysts Greg Anthony and Ernie Johnson call the action as you showcase your skills in the Slam Dunk Contest and 3 Point Shootout Have your own NBA All-Star Weekend, with the Rookie Challenge and NBA All-Star Game Former Chicago Bulls star Steve Kerr joins the legendary Marv Albert court side -- together they call all the action from the best seats in the house.
It features Gilbert Arenas of the Washington Wizards as the cover athlete, Pau Gasol in home Memphis Grizzlies jersey in the Spanish version.
The soundtrack is awesome with some really dirty tunes and the in-game commentary is even more accurate in it’s response to the action, with updated player stats and the odd argument for added realism!
Including the regular NBA season and Championship competitions, 08 offers the gamer a chance to create their own NBA Dynasty. In this game mode, the user gets to manage their chosen team, from purchasing the administration staff to scouting and signing new talent. You can even set the teams training schedule for the off-season, choosing where you’d like your team to focus most, whether its offense, defense or just physical exercise.
Gameplay is fairly easy, though some may struggle with the finer commands for setting plays and pulling off stunning moves. The in-game quick-play selection is useful but the method can be a little tricky to perform. Signature moves and improved dribbling skills add a great deal of flare to the experience, but it can take a while to get your timing down on shot-taking, lay-ups and dunks.
Aside from the option of creating your own player from scratch, you can also modify the player attribute ratings, so if you feel like KG isn’t jumping as high as in real life, or AI’s not quite as fast, you can modify these players up to make them better-than-all-star players!
The only real downfall of this latest NBA title from EA is the mundane, plain-jane loading screen. It lacks any of the style and flavor witnessed in-game and is on screen just long enough to irritate you...and that goes for the ESPN sponsored NBA quiz that appears while your next game loads too. For the die-hard fan, sure your gonna love it, but for casual admirers it’s a bit heavy. When will we see actual NBA highlight reels replace these time-stretchingly boring loading screens?!!!! I want fast paced inspirational visuals of the guys on my team to get me “pumped-up” for my next battle!
Besides the loading screens this is a fantastic basketball game, truly representing and reproducing the atmosphere, excitement, strategy and flare of the NBA league. If, like me, you are a fan of the sport then this is the best game on the market! Go shoot some hoops why don’t you?!
