With NBA 2K8 releasing its first screenshots, take a look at the side-by-side comparison of NBA Live 08 to 2K8.
...even if the gameplay isn't as good.
2K games have really fallen behind this gen, and with the laughable All-Pro Football they just released, it doesn't look like they'll be catching up anytime soon.
at least with the 2k pick of Baron Davis. That guy looked spot on. Being a Mavericks fan I hate that man and his face will be forever etched in my brain as the reason we were beat in the 1st round.
live has the likenesses down pat.. but the gameplay WILL suck.. i'd have to see the number and complexity of the animations and framerates to see what game looks better.. crowds look a little nicer in 2k8
2K8 visually does everything accurately except the player's face. WHY 2K WHY!? It's like they're give me a reason to buy live. Freaking Chris Paul looks like Devin Harris.
I just hate the exaggerations of the differences.
Not being a fan of this sport or having any knowledge on its players, i think both look pretty realistic.
it's not hard for live to look good when there's nothing else going on.... they even had to darken the stadium just to get the game running at 60 fps where as NBA 2K7/8 has people walking around the stadium.. complete bench reactions... millions of animations and sick AI all running at 60 fps
Yeah NBA Live won that one 2K8 looks way too shinny. What is this a 1st wave game? Come on enough with the plastic looking models already.
