The first thing that strikes you is the beautiful 1080p graphics, running smoothly at 60 frames per second. With a good full hd tv, this game really shows what the PlayStation 3 can do. But after a while you realise there are some problems.
NBA 08 is a solid sports title, but it still needs some work to be on top of it's league. If Sony can fix the gameplay and control problems, NBA 09 will be excellent. Until then, they have an average game that will make you cheer with satisfaction and cry with frustration.
