NBA '08 introduces a number of brand new mini-games that players can enjoy anytime, anywhere. All-new carnival-style games such as Block-a-Shot join contests such as Fast Break, Shootin' Bricks, and pinball to provide fast action that adds to the stable of traditional and non-traditional basketball action.
In addition to new mini-games, NBA '08 features refined control mechanics and Artificial Intelligence (A.I.), which creates a more realistic and action-oriented gameplay experience. The game also features an enhanced Conquest Mode, expanded multiplayer features, downloadable content, and expanded audio commentary.
