I'm not a huge basketball fan. But when i played this collage hoops game i was amazed. I loved how EA got in touch with BOTH ESPN and CBS Sports. The brodcasters can be a little bland saying the same thing over and over but they are definitly brought to life. I also like the update on real life standings and rankings which i think brings the game to life completely. Overall i would give this game a good 8 out of 10 because the game can be very bland but then it will put you in the game and bring it to life.
I was surprised when I began to play this game. I have been playing Ncaa basketball for years now and have never been really impressed. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by the jump this game has taken. The graphics are leaps and bounds above previous titles. The movement is crisp and the shooting this year makes you feel like you have some control. I also have to complement the presentation of the game. You have multiple announce teams and the sound and commentary make you feel like you are watching a broadcast instead of playing a game. The recruiting still needs some work and the dynasty menus need to be laid out in a more efficient way. These however are minor complaints compared to all the new positive aspects of this game. This is by far the best basketball game for your money this year. Go out and buy this game and be ready to be pleasantly surprised.
