We have just posted our NBA 08 review. Find out what Chris Sullivan had to say about it.
"My basketball gaming days date all the way back to Double Dribble on my Nintendo Entertainment System--you know, back when we played games because they were fun. I didn't care much for realism back then, either. Fast forward to today, and it's clear most developers strive for a perfect mix of arcade and simulation in any sports title. Very few titles accomplish that.
There's one title within the basketball genre that's widely considered the best sports franchise amongst its peers, and that's the NBA2K series. It's the benchmark to which all basketball titles are compared and has been for years now. Sony Computer Entertainment America's (SCEA) NBA 08 is trying to make some noise on the PS3 and appears to be up to the daunting task. Will it come out of nowhere and be a contender like the Utah Jazz? Or will it be satisfied with mediocrity and disappoint like the Philadelphia 76ers? Let's find out."
