EA Sports Basketball simulator brings a fast paced style of play with tight controls and graphical upgrades to the basketball gaming scene.
Dynasty mode follows the path of the gamers favourite NBA team and is the games central feature. Throughout each mode gameplay is rapid and the passes are short and precise. Players can now choose whether they dunk or shoot the ball at the last minute, and the introduction of combination moves means that attacks, when executed perfectly, overwhelm defences. The graphics too have been improved - reflections are visible, emanating from the polished hardwood courts.
Overall the main aspect of the game is the improved style of play. Two player games are rapid and exciting, as is online play, which is fast paced and suits the league system EA has introduced. In addition to the league, tournaments are regularly scheduled, meaning that the gamer is never stuck for activities on NBA Live 08.
The reworked, NBA Live 08 is a game which has invested heavily in quality of play, and it has paid off. This basketball simulator has enough features to make sure the enjoyable gameplay continues through its numerous modes.
