EA Sports NBA LIVE 08 (Basketball)

This game has all of the same menus and many of the same features as Other EA sports games. (See my soccer review below.) One of those features I did not mention in the soccer preview is the ability to add the numchuck and control an individual player. This and other features should only be used for advanced play. i.e. after you have won at all levels. This review will give a player tips for winning the NBA Championship Trophy as well last the Slam Dunk Contest and Three Point Shooting Contest. All these options are available anymore in this Wii game. First off, I suggest choosing a team with a high rating. The number ratings range from 77 to 99. These rankings or numbers are taken from the actual record of the perceived teams from that given calendar year. Second suggestion, don’t fall behind or get cocky. Jump ahead and stay ahead. Most of all keep up the pressure. Don’t forget to have fun as well. If you play an individual game you can choose a Wii console charater and the bar on the bottom of screen will give you hints such as “Early Release” and “Late Release” as well as pointers such as “Nice Block” and “Sweet Pass”or even “Dunk Now”! This game will benefit all audiences, including college basketball players as well as their 39 year –old reporters and even cute, adorable twins on the basketball scoring panel. Grade B (B for Basketball)

A note from an editor!

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for the time and effort you put into this piece, especially on a Saturday morning. I can tell you definitely took good notes of everything that was going on during the event!

We still have some work to do before this piece is ready to print. Your piece has a lot of information, but it doesn’t sound like a news article. What was the point of his speech/presentation? Why was he addressing this audience? What is Vanguard? What does the company do – who does it serve? You spend a lot of time narrating (for example, how he was injured), but did not report on the purpose of the event. You can maybe mention his appearance/joking about it in a sentence or two, but do not take several paragraphs to do so. Also, I like how you mentioned where the name “Vanguard” comes from.

There are a lot of spelling errors in this piece – make sure you proof read each sentence carefully.

I know I am getting back to you a little later I hoped, and I’m sorry about that! But if you have time tonight, please go through my suggestions and try to rework your piece. You can send me what you have tonight/tomorrow morning. Please bring a copy of it to the meeting tomorrow and we will discuss it further from there.

Once again, thanks for your hard work and promptness! Remember this is a learning process, and we are all part of the Waltonian team!

Talk to you soon!
