Gamedaily writes: "EA goes for championship glory with its latest hoops game, which features improved animations, more FIBA teams and one feature that may revolutionize sports games forever.
A funny thing happened with NBA Live 08; we liked it. For years, Electronic Arts' signature basketball series suffered from sluggish play, but the company slam-dunked its current edition with faster, more lifelike players and animations. It isn't the greatest hoops game ever made, but it gave EA a solid foundation to build upon. Debuting October 7, NBA Live 08adds even more features, starting with Dynamic DNA."
