It seems that the college basketball games seem to have been getting a bit overlooked the past few years. The March Madness and 2k games have been very dissapointing. But the new installment of college hoops acually didnt dissapoint me. The graphics are halfway descent and a good amount of thought was put into the crowd with the 3d fans and student section. The shots and passes look very good and so do the blocks. The legacy game mode is very realistic. It features a very good recruiting feature and the experiance of starting at a small college and working up to a powerhouse college. The most satisfying College BBall game yet but it does have a few flaws. For example it can be somwhat glitchy with the uniforms and there arent many player celebrations and cutscenes. You also cannot take your created team into legacy mode which is upseting. It has the basics but it fails to go above and beyond so it gets a 7 out of 10

This game is for sure better than March Madness 08. The main aspect that makes this game great, is "career legacy" mode. This allows you to create a coach and lets you pick from a select number of terrible basketball teams and then coach this team and try to get better jobs. Recruiting needs a little work, but the gameplay is very good. However, one thing about the gameplay that needs work, is offensive moves and better control over your players. Thats all I got.

I like the Legacy mode where you start out as a small school team and work your way up.

I dont like the controls for the players. I thought it was hard to flow from defense to offense and shooting wasn't easy either. Plust whats up with the foul shooting?
