    From the spiffy graphics to the more right analog stick-centric controls to the robust Create-A-Superstar to the new WWE 24/7 career mode, this is SmackDown as its finest. [Dec 2007, p.72]

    Everything else is pretty much the same as the PS3 version, though, sadly, the online play has been stripped out. [Dec 2007, p.73]

    Short, but sweet and--if you followed the game's initial advice--truly scary. [Dec 2007, p.83]

    Basically more of the same, but we aren't complaining...It's Guitar Hero, it's next-gen, and it's the party game PS3 owners have been waiting for. [Dec 2007, p.74]

    Still, you're Conan, doing what Conan does(well, almost--unlike Kratos, the Conan in this game is pretty chaste overall), and that's always a good time. [Dec 2007, p.86]

    Combines absolutely jaw-dropping graphics with familiar platforming/shooting mechanics and genuinely funny humor to make one of the PS3's few true masterpieces. [Dec 2007, p.66]

    Overall, NBA 08 looks great and plays smooth, but more importantly, it's a huge improvement over last year's entry. [Dec 2007, p.80]

    So while the regular season gameplay has seen some nice overhauling in the last 12 months--including better rebounding and a butter-smooth 60 freames-per-second framerate--NBA 08 delivers a ton more handheld-ready, mini-game action. [Dec 2007, p.80]

    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]

    EA's hat-trick, though, goes to the A.I., which will really press you to use strategy, passing, and screens if you want to light the lamp. [Dec 2007, p.82]
