2KSports brings something for everyone with NBA 2K8. The NBA 2K series continues its 5-year reign as king of the court with multiple solo and multiplayer modes along with improved offensive and defensive controls. Build your signature moves with customizable free throws, dunks and dribble moves which are authentically recreated in your favorite NBA players. Get the ball to your best shot with on-the-fly sets whether you call for the specific situation in the control menu or by using the "Get Open" button.

Lock-On D lets you play tighter defense and run advanced defensive sets while trying to force a turnover. Take control of your team by assigning player roles and play time while keeping up team morale or just hoop it up with the Sprite Slam Dunk Contest with intuitive controls along with movable props to add that extra bit of style. You can also take it to the street with NBA Blacktop for a little street ball or three-point shoot-out.

The action on the court is brought to life with a completely revamped graphics and animation system that provides more realistic dribbling, dekes, finger rolls, dunks and jump shots. Each player's shooting ability has been rated to reflect their accuracy shooting on the move, while in traffic or from a set position to emulate the original player's preferences. Real-life physics causes players plant their feet before executing moves and the improved AI even extends to the sidelines as players and officials will react to collisions and near-misses as the action takes players out-of-bounds. Go online and join leagues – including those offering fantasy drafts. Up to 10 players can team up for simultaneous play. Challenge opponents to slam dunk competitions, create tournaments or go the distance and play out a season.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great game play, really smooth and natural. All the different modes are great, and the graphics are awesome.

Cons: There are no online leagues for the PS3, just PS2 and 360. Not sure why, but something I didn't know when i purchased it.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat

Pros: Awesome gameplay. Post-ups are highly realistic. This version makes 3-point shooting much harder than the 2k7.

The dunk contest is fun!

Cons: The instant replays are annoying, but you can get rid of them.

I hear NBA Live 08 has better character detail; the 2k8 detail is lacking.

Other Thoughts: I don't know if a lot of people buy games from newegg since you have to pay shipping. I bought mine from Bxxt Bxy... not that it matters.

Top 3 Plays after the game is soooo fun to watch.
