Bringing basketball to the next level of realism, the officially licensed NBA 08 features a comprehensive and authentic recreation of the sport, with advanced artificial intelligence, intuitive user interface and a TV style commentary track for in-depth audio play-by-play, to fully envelop gamers within the rich atmosphere of an NBA broadcast.

The Sixaxis Wireless Controller provides a unique control system for on and off the ball play options, including specific dribbles as well as high and low offensive and defensive moves. NBA 08 challenges players to complete tasks and earn experience which can be used to customise characters and flaunt them as status symbols of game achievement. Reaching higher profile levels grants access to better gear and unlockable content, with the ability to house awards in a virtual trophy room.

Rounding off the package is streamlined online functionality, which uses a hub area where players can readily share game features and data, such as custom created squads, streaming NBA video, player-created pages, and improved leaderboards. The Game of the Week highlight reel also allows fans to download five scenarios each week involving real NBA matches from the upcoming '07 - '08 season, and then replay those magical moments within the game.

All-New Progression System - NBA 08 introduces a new system of rewarding players for game exploration and advancement by providing numerous customisable player options.

Greater Online Accessibility - Utilising an online hub where players can readily share game features and data, NBA '08 provides a streamlined approach for online basketball gaming.

    NBA Replay Mode - Back to test the skills of the most hardcore NBA fans, "NBA Replay" is once again available for players to re-enact great performances from the '06 -'07 season and work through the entire past season's worth of memorable gameplay scenarios.

      Brand New Full Audio Commentary - NBA 08 now delivers the sights and sounds of an NBA broadcast to the user with authentic play-by-play and in-depth color commentary.

        Enhanced Gameplay and A.I. - In addition to the core fundamentals of gameplay, NBA 08 improves on team gameplay elements. Offensive and defensive player positioning is more authentic, where players space themselves correctly on offense and defenders react more realistically to shots, layups, and shifts in offense.

          Greater Sixaxis Controls - Expanded Sixaxis functionality provides an all-new and deeper set of control options including specific dribbles as well as high and low offensive and defensive moves.

            Expanded Character Movement - A new contact mechanism takes into account a player's momentum when pushing into one another, introducing a "physical" (as opposed to finesse) game play mechanic.

              Updated Environments - Arenas given more life with more dynamic movement and animations, particularly with coaches, bench players, and crowd.

                Full HD at 1080p - NBA 08 continues to deliver true high definition at 60 frames per second, delivering the sharpest and most realistic basketball experience available.

                dunno about anyone else but enjoyed this game over 2k8 and 08 live the balance between gameplay graphics and entertainment made it more enjoyable and prefer this so in my opinion if you are going to get an nba game choose this one highly enjoyable and significantly challenging, download the 3 demos and see for yourself

                NBA '08 Is'nt a Bad game and its not a great game either.the shooting is surprisingly VERY easy, once you get ised to the shooting it's rare that you miss, playing offence tends to be easy and defence has some difficulty to it but i suppose playing defence is a more skilled thing to play. It has few different features to the other NBA games such NBA Live 08 and NBA 2K8, its the only NBA game out thats has the skills challenge and a mini-game called 'Hot Spot'. it's a game where you have to shoot from the markers, the further away you shoot from, the more points you get and the player with the most points when times up, wins. The game can get quite repetative, so i suggest that you buy either NBA 2K8 or NBA Live 08, whichever you prefer.

                 definately bad
