Who Needs Rules have posted an NBA 2K8 article entitled, Run and Gun No More. Who are these cats?
"I was one of the lucky ones to get NBA 2K8 for the XBox 360 early. In my first few minutes of playing it, I could already tell this was a whole new game. Sure, most of the aspects look similar, and it even plays similar, but something is different. I couldn't put my finger on it till last night when I was playing online against my blog-mate, Chris. The game just plays like the NBA, feels like the NBA, and almost seems like you are controlling your own NBA.
Let me explain, with last year's game, making no slider tweaks (makes difficutly easier or more difficult), you could drive and dunk at will. Not this year. The lane fills up, the players hold their spots, and the collision detection is amazing. I've even ran into the coach 2 or 3 times, mostly on purpose to see if it was even possible. I don't even think I'll touch the sliders this year, it plays that good out of the box."
