First of all I’m not a big Basketball fan but this game is defintily an improvement from NBA’s game(Live 06). In this ‘review’, I am not going to give an opinion of the game other than what I just said, however, I will let you know how to earn 1000 points in 40 minutes or less.
First of all it’s important that you know this game has a stat altering function in that you can make your team perfect. Some people have reported when they altered the stats they do not get the achievements…I found out that if you alter it WHILE playing then you don’t get it. However, if you alter BEFORE you go into the game you’ll get all the points. Having said that, go into Options and get to work. To make it real simple set the HOME team to perfect. (just move it all the way to the right). Press RB(the top R button), then go into the Advance Defense and Offence Maneuvers. Once you get in there and looking at the achievements you should be able to figure out what to increase.(Blocking, Stealing). The next step is to set the other team. Go into the Away setting and change all their stuff all the way down except the “Mid Shot Tendancy”, and the other one that makes them shoot from the inside(this makes every person in the other team shoot for only 2 points therefore making it easier on you to block their shots).
After your done setting up the Stat Altering go into the Gameplay option and set it to simulation, put it at a 20 min Half, and turn down foul tendancies. You can also make it easier if you like and turn off fatigue etc.
Now just go into the Quick Game option from the main Menu, pick your team(set to home), and pick any team to go against(away). You’ll see that your team almost makes every shot they take(even from half court). However they might not do good in blocking, so set your defense at the highest level, and set the play where your team focus’s on inside defense. Using the settings above in one game or so you'll be done!
worth renting not buying

College Hoops 2k6

The game really shows it's age now days, but the achievements are great. You can gain just about every achievement in one 40min sitting. If you have two controllers you can cut this down to 20mins or less.
Be sure to look up some game guides on how to set up your settings as this will be crucial for your achievements. Also note that you may want to get these achievements offline.
(Why?) Well there is a small technical problem that can occur while playing on Xbox Live. If you play on Xbox Live be sure you do not get disconnected while playing your game. If you do then you will receive a message at the end of the game stating that your Achievements have not been earned because you "Switched Gamer Profiles".
So to protect your achievements I suggest simply playing the game offline.
Overall any 2K6 game is a good choice to boost up that gamerscore, and College Hoops is no exception.

If you need points, definately worth getting.

However, if you're wanting an actual basketball game, I would run away as fast as you can. This game is REAL ugly looking, and you could do a lot better. This would pass as an OK game graphics-wise on a PS2.
So, achievement gatherers, get this now (for that matter the whole 2k6 series of games), anyone else should avoid at all costs.

However, the game only has 5 Achievements, with only 1 of them being at all difficult, which is "Get 6 Blocks With Any Player" since the blocking system in this game is garbage.
Just an okay game, nothing special. If you're gonna rent a basketball for fun, and not Achievements, don't rent this.

smooth gameplay-no stuttering or glitches during the game
no actual players names-(at least some, because Florida doesn't have Joakim Noah or Corey Brewer)
I used Michigan State and did well, only losing to Florida by 8-10. Soooooo, it was pretty fun.
Past its prime . . .

Achievements - One of the easiest games out there. If you play your cards right, you can get all 1k/1k in one game with full 20 min halfs. 1-2 hours for all 1000 points, can't argue with that, can you?

One of the downfall is the graphics in the game but it is easily by pass once you get online to play with your friends.

Worth Getting At Any Price

Youll never get a game this good for under $10. Its a fact, the Gfx on this game are great, the game play is FUN FUN FUN, and the depth might even be too much if theres such a thing.
If your like me and dont really follow college baskeball but enjoy baskeball games, then this is a good game to have.
Over all I would recomend this game highly for any one looking for a great find in the bargain bin of game fly.
I would give this a 9 (Of 10)
it was OK
