This game sucks big time. Graphics are average and commentary is terrible.

Features
All-New Progression System: NBA '08 introduces a new system of rewarding players for game exploration and advancement by providing numerous customizable player options. As gamers play NBA '08, they will be challenged to complete tasks and goals that will earn experience. In turn, experience can be used to customize characters and show them off as status symbols of game achievement. Reaching higher profile levels will grant access to better gear and unlockable content, and players will be able to house awards in a virtual trophy room.
Brand New Animations: Animation variety is significantly increased, featuring a variety of new passing and dribbling styles, defensive postures that include high and wide coverage, as well as new looks for box out and post-up activity.
Brand New Full Audio Commentary: NBA '08 now delivers the sights and sounds of an NBA broadcast to the user with authentic play-by-play and in-depth color commentary. Newly incorporated audio, cut scenes, and UI elements blend together to transport gamers into a slick and organic NBA-themed world.
Enhanced Character Models: Utilizing a refined version of lighting and shader techniques, NBA '08 produces characters that look more authentic and realistic than ever.
Enhanced Gameplay and A.I.: In addition to the core fundamentals of gameplay, NBA '08 improves on team gameplay elements. Offensive and defensive player positioning is more authentic, where players space themselves correctly on offense and defenders react more realistically to shots, layups, and shifts in offense. Passing and catching is revamped to reward users with good shots when a quality pass is made. Additionally, a new game management system requires player strategy to determine play calling, when and who to substitute, and when to call a timeout.
Expanded Character Movement: A new contact mechanism takes into account a player's momentum when pushing into one another, introducing a "physical" (as opposed to finesse) game play mechanic. Additionally, more emphasis is placed on off ball play, where gamers use skills to improve team abilities including reaction time and attention to passing windows.
Full HD at 1080p: NBA '08 continues to deliver true high definition at 60 frames per second, delivering the sharpest and most realistic basketball experience available.
Greater Online Accessibility: Utilizing an online hub where players can readily share game features and data, NBA '08 provides a streamlined approach for online basketball gaming. For this year, gamers will be able to participate in a social environment where they can easily show off custom created players and gain access to streaming NBA video, player-created pages, and improved leaderboards.
Greater SIXAXIS Controls: Expanded SIXAXIS functionality provides an all-new and deeper set of control options including specific dribbles as well as high and low offensive and defensive moves.
Mini-Games: Play on your own or against friends in multiple mini-games including "Own The Court", 3-Point Shootout, and the PlayStation Skills Challenge.
NBA Replay (Games of the Week): Returning with an all-new set of upcoming highlight-reel plays, "Games of the Week" will allow players to download five scenarios each week involving real NBA games from the upcoming '07 -'08 season and attempt to replay those magical moments within the game.
NBA Replay Mode: Back to test the skills of the most hardcore NBA fans, "NBA Replay" is once again available for players to re-enact great performances from the '06 -'07 season and work through the entire past season's worth of memorable gameplay scenarios.
Updated Environments: Arenas given more life with more dynamic movement and animations, particularly with coaches, bench players, and crowd.
