Ultimately, NBA 2K8 is another superbly entertaining basketball sim with some of the sickest visuals you've ever seen. Hoops aficionados will appreciate the attention to player detail and even-more-intensive franchise mode that's bound to suck away dozens of hours without you realizing it. However, room for improvement abounds, and there's also some serious competition from NBA Live 08, which sports more user-friendly shotmaking and ballhandling controls. No matter what - and as shocking as it is to say this - 2K8 is not a slam-dunk, no-brainer-this-is-your-next-gen-basketball-title this season. It's merely second best.
