New NBA Live '08 Trailer

Hold turbo, rotate the joystick, slam dunk. Repeat. Sound familiar? Since seemingly the dawn of basketball games themselves, there seems to be a vital component missing, the short game. It seems to go one of two ways, either you have ridiculous dunks, or pitiful fade-aways that do nothing to emphasize the true physical nature of life “in the paint”. Once again, EA is showing some spunk, revitalizing their sports franchises with some fresh ideas. Who is this new and improved EA and what have they done with the evil corporation we love to hate? With spectacular reviews of Madden ’08 coming in, it seems EA is starting to show signs of why we used to love them. Trailers like this one certainly make the case for their revitalization.

There is nothing like making a defender’s knees slam together as you sprint by. I’m glad to see they are taking some cues from the marvelous NBA Street series in an effort to make simulation basketball fun again.
