If you are wine taster then the title I made up will hit you right at the sweet spot! This years 2K8 CH is beyond what it use to be. The graphics and gameplay are very much improved on the PS3 and with the addition of Crowd Meter it really gives you that College Hoops feel when you watch a game on TV or if you are at the actual arena. Dynasty Mode is still a big plus with a recruiting system similiar to the NCAA 08 Football. The look mimics the NBA2K8 series alot as well as the gameplay of it as well. I am very much impressed with this years CH!
Usually the reason people play college versions of sports games is for the ability to run a "college franchise". The games dynamics are are based on NBA2K7 which are great so there is no concern there. They are better than the EA alternative.
The recruiting system system is where the game shines and really makes the franchise experience last. The game is fun because it allows you as a coach to progress from a tiny school to your favorite utilizing different strategies along the way. The player gets to weave a great basketball coaching and playing experience along the way.
If you love college basketball this game is definitely worth checking out.
