NBA Live 08
3 Star Review  GameZone - Nov 12, 2007

In the left corner stands FIFA Soccer: tough and resilient on the old-gen consoles, sleek and dynamic on PS3 and Xbox 360. In the right corner stands NBA Live: gorgeous on the next-gen, flailing on PS2. Every year we see FIFA thrive on all platforms, old or new. NBA Live, however – like Tiger Woods and other sports franchises – have not had the best of luck. Their next-gen iterations are getting better with every update. But the PS2 versions don’t give gamers much to get excited about. NBA Live 08 is a chance to turn the tide – a sequel to breathe new life into the previous generation’s most popular console (the only seven-year-old console still being manufactured and still kicking butt at retail).

NBA Live 08
3 Star Review   By member gigantopithecus - May 9, 2008   

Strengths: Updated rosters.

Weakness: Nothing significant has changed from NBA Live 07.

The rosters have been updated & they didn't break it. The FIBA tournament (not really worth anything in my humble opinion) is about the only new thing added to the game; otherwise, game modes are identical. One noteworthy change (which I think is an improvement) is combining the dunk and layup buttons, which is how it was done in NBA Live 06, and this improves game play a bit. NBA Live continues to be a solid series, though there really haven't been any significant changes in years now.
