Hope it's worth it. I'm sick of playing NBA2k6.

2k8 isn't bad, i hope they improve immensely when they release 2k9 though, somehow they need to make the game play better, i don't like that you miss so many layups and i don't like that you can pretty much score whenever, and the lockdown D thing makes it so anyone can essentially guard anyone

2K8 is pretty good. They didn't make many improvements over 2K7 on the PS2 system. Has a glitch or two. Nothing major. Graphics are ok.

What really frustrates me are some of the lack of options in franchise mode, and the really really really poor create-a-player options.

The commentary sucks, and the overall presentation is pretty bland.

BTW, this isn't just for the 2K games, but who the f*ck decided that basketball games had to be associated with stupid rap songs playing over and over again?

Thinking about 2k things, is it just me or are sport games nowadays are released too fast? While we get a "new" games with new rosters every years many of them, graphics, gameplays etc., are about the same as the previous ones........

Just my opinion.........

Well, I didn't get 2k7... So. I can't get myself to buy the new game every year because I know that few improvements will be made. But I found it cheap and it has the slam dunk contest.... So...

I'm not buying 2k9 unles they make significant changes to the gameplay.

They used to be the king because they really just were that good. Now they are the king because there just isn't anybody else.
2k releases the same trash every year too, their trash is just a bit better than EA's trash.

My biggest concern, also. So many people are just worried about the Create A Player feature, or the shoes, the free-throw routines, or how long Kobe's arm sleeve will be. The gameplay should be the most important aspect. I really hope they make improvements, but I doubt we'll see any major changes in this years installment.

exactly how I feel. The music on 2k8 sucks and is really annoying.

I agree that the gameplay needs to be different. I hope that the graphics and the moves look like Live 09 demo, but the game play and how easy it is too score is different.

ummm the changes from NBA2k7 to NBA 2K8 were drastic... mainly because 2K8 was the first installment on PS3. After playing NBA2k8 on PS3, I went and bought a PS3 the next day.

The PS2 version of 2K8 is just 2K7 with new rosters though, very dissapointing for PS2 owners....


but who still plays PS2?

Honestly, companies aren't making games for PS2 anymore, so you can't expect PS2 games to be any good.

They already stated that they are taking NBA2k8, and only making slight adjustments to improve gameplay. They said they are focused on gameplay, not just graphics, because gameplay is what made them #1.


NBA2K9 is going to be a must buy on PS3, even for people who own NBA2K8.

Personally, I don't care about creating players unless their not on the official roster already. I don't expect a perfect game either. Heck, I still play NBA2k6... But the roster is a few years out of date now. So...
