When EA Sports pledged full support for the Wii, I was quite exultant. The thought of the wii-mote being utilized in various sports seemed promising, as they inch closer to the real life games. However, some efforts are not taking advantage of the wide range of opportunities on...read full review

It's a hot cover but part of his head is cut off by the Wii sign on the top. Oh, and the game comes out on October 2, 2007.

I'll try my best everybody! With me and Caron Butler coming back for our injury, we are going to play harder than before. As a team, we are also trying to emphasize our defense. I try my best, but definitely we are going to the playoffs.

They better have the new draft player like Greg Oden and Kevin Durant. Also the new sneakers, new gameplay, new graphics, and also the trade of Ray Allen.

Kobe Bryant said:

I talked with the producers of this game, and we agreed that I will be on the cover of the next one. Plus, they told me that I am the best player in the game.

Gonzo said:

Kobe, 1st: I know that's not you. 2nd: Carmelo Anthony is the best in the game. 3rd: You were already on the cover of NBA 07 the Life. Maybe Lebron will be on the cover.

Sonic Phantom said:

No, Shaq will be on the next cover.

Gonzo said:

Na, not Shaq. Because he's been on the cover of NBA 2K6 and 2K7. They need to get some new coverboys.

Gonzo said:

Maybe LeBron. He's hasn't had a cover yet. Or Carmelo again. I love him.

This is by far the best sports game for Wii yet. Pretty decent graphics and great controls. Nba party is fun too. The only problem is that there is no fantasy mode, nba store or any of that. Only season. Still a great game though.
