    Default Official NBA Live 08 thread...

    NBA Live is back. Wow, what a huge improvement from their three-year run of crap. They finally have a game able to compete with the big boys.

    Live 08 looks absolutely gorgeous. They even have Maxiell's signature one-handed gorilla dunk where he collects himself really low and goes straight up...if they went into that much detail for a 7th man, I can't imagine what they did for the other players...

    Really happy with NBA Live for the first time in years. Thumbs up.

    The online play is the most seamless EA game I've ever played. almost zero lag, unheard of for a sports game.

    The quick-strike ballhandling system provides accurate signature dribble-moves for every great ballhandler. Iverson for the first time plays like Allen Iverson.

    As an old-school NBA Live fan, this game is very gratifying. All the things that made NBA Live great in the past.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    For online play, why doesn't EA make a internet speed restriction? I hate having to quit games because the other person's internet is so crappy that I can't even shoot.

    No idea, but that doesn't seem to be an issue this time around.

    It's happened to be twice since I got the game. I had to take 2 defeats because of it.

    I haven't played the game, but I remember some players lagging purposely to defeat you or get you to quit purposely

    I have a Xbox 360, but i will still wait for the PC version... I have a high end computer and i feel like a resolution of 1600x1200++ and 8xAA and 16xAF @ 100 FPS with the surround sound of my "Soundblaster X-Fi XtemeGamer" makes the 360 / PS3 look like its Sega Genesis

    How is the game anyways? Just tell me its better than Live 07 and i will be happy! Did they fix the net/rim? You know, on 07 it looks very unrealistic when the ball passes thru the rim... the net moves almost nothing at all, not even when its a clear "swish!",

    It's heads and shoulders above Live 07.

    I have both 2K8 and Live and I play like 10 times as much. It's just more fun to play.

    Live O8 is good, but they still have to iron out a lot of stuff. Like Defense and some AI issues. The game looks beautiful tho and huge improvement from last year

    Ok... just tested NBA Live 08 and i liked it! Gameplay is MUCH better then previous Live series, but still i like 2K8 better!

    The rim/net i was babbling about hasnt been fixed, the net moves realistically only when u dunk... same crap as in the previous Live series when you shoot the ball and it doesnt pass thru the hoop realistically, the net moves just slightly, like if the net is made out of iron.

    LOL, i cant believe such a small thing annoys me! Haha! Is it only me who gets annoyed by a small thing like this?

    This annoys someone else?!?!?!?!?!
    I hate it, frustrates me every time!
    When i hit a perfect 3 i want the ball the spash through the net and for the net to flick out emphaticly just to show how perfect it was!
    I'm glad i'm not the only one!

    As for the game! I like it a lot, just got it on PC, looks great and the game play is much improved, feels less like skating on Ice and there are less set action sequences that you cant get out of! All in all, probably the best overall basketball game!

    Really enjoying it, and the pacers arn't nearly as bad as a team on it as i thought they would be!

    ok just got the Live 08 for PC...

    I'm playing the Dynasty Mode...

    After simulating a couple of the games I noticed that there was a giant problem with the Stats!

    The Centers were averaging like 12 assists a game while the guards are getting 18 boards a game - and the high profilic scorers are averaging over 40pts a game!

    Anyone else have witnessed this? This is tough to see - specially when you are trying to "simulate" >_<

    do they update the rosters and change the lineups online? I swear they were 64 and now they are 73 without Diogu. Dunleavy is a mid range assassin. Murphy is great to. Tins is still a little sad.
