Could Be Better
NBA 08 is an average title, but it is so close to being great. The rainbow shot meter is a great shot meter for a basketball title. And the create a player is very addicting. In fact its this titles saving grace. Being able to use points earned during the game play to add stats to your player and unlock anything from jerseys to arenas, this is without a doubt the best part of the title. But the game play is sketchy at best and it has no franchise, which really is a must for any sports sim title.
If your looking just to buy one NBA game, NBA 2k8 is far and away better than this title and should be the one of the three that you buy. But NBA 08 has its merits and hopefully next years title will be better.Read full review...
Worse NBA game of year
This is definitly the worst of the three NBA games released in 2007(NBA 08, Live 08, and 2k8). "The Life" is one of the most atrocious things ever put in a basketball game. They give you stupid things to do in the game, and the storyline makes no sense whatsoever. The overall gameplay is horrible: The movements of players are very unrealistic, the skills of players are also stupid. For example, a Center on any team can hit a 3 pt shot if they're open almost all the time, but a great shooter(Kobe, Lebron, T-Mac, etc.) hardly ever hits a contested 3. I mean, a Center like Shaq or Yao can hit 3's if left open about 60% of the time, but Kobe only shoots 10% from 3 when he's contested. Basically, the gameplay makes you wonder what these designers were thinking when they developed this game.
This is just one of those games where you play for 5 minutes and you're like, "wait, why'd I buy/rent this game again?" It really hasn't improved at all from the 06 or 07 game. I'd honestly say that NBA Live 04 was better than this game. Seriously, if you buy this game and like it, go get your brain checked. I just wonder why whatever company makes this game keeps trying ever year, cuz it's obviously not getting any better.Read full review...

NBA '08 for PS3
I have not opened this item, but have played the game. It's a must-have for any sports junkie, especially those who love basketball.
overall it looks good as far as graphic wise but game play isnt as good as 2k8 recommend you play nba 08 on spare time and not as a premier basketball game
