    An entertaining basketball game with fabulous match atmosphere. National teams are a great addition, although the lack of real world championships is a little minus. The awful camera work and the stiff animations are still the main things that need improvement. [Oct 2007]
  2. NBA Live 08 doesn’t add a whole lot of new modes, but the stronger gameplay goes a long way. The improved, more realistic gameplay, coupled with the excellent presentation package make NBA Live 08 a must-have for basketball game fans.

    All of that, combined with a decent variety of gameplay modes and the eight international teams(read:you can also draft international players into your franchise)make NBA Live 08 a great score for PS2 ballers. [Dec 2007, p.81]

Decent graphics, nice career options and solid simulation for the time on PS2, tho i feel they couldve added the LED arena commercial strips, that would have increased presentation and immersion. Then again i didnt buy these games year afer year, this was my first on only NBA Live, so i dont know how they improved and didnt compared to later and older ones. Full Review »
