2K Sports invited us to try NBA 2K8 here in Washington, D.C. Find out what Aaron Holbert had to say about the game.
"2K Sports paid a visit to Washington D.C. and I got a chance to play an 85% complete version of the NBA 2k8. Let me start by saying that this version is much better than the demo version we are all currently playing. The player faces are greatly improved from the demo and I thought Lebron looked way more realistic in this version.
Two of the biggest game play features in this year’s game, off ball control and the play diagrams, look fantastic. One of my biggest issues with most basketball games is that you can’t decide who will set a screen on a pick and roll. In most games, it’s either the center or the power forward. In NBA 2k8, you can decide which one of your four teammates sets a pick or works to get open. When I first heard about this feature I thought it sounded a bit complicated and wasn’t going to be user friendly but after playing the game I think it’s a great feature that adds a new level of enjoyment."
