Lack of game modes. There are 3 modes available. Play now, Dynasty, and tournament. Still some glitches during gameplay (backcourt violations, players running out of bounds, missed easy layups) holding circle on offense will start a pick. this works ok but not great, and far too often you get a moving pick called. In dynasty mode their is no practice or training camp for you it is all just simulated. I wish they gave you the option to run some drills and build up your players. That being said I wish they gave you the option to simulate recruiting. the recruiting system is old and is lacking content and they have to give us an option to simulate recruiting like ncaa football did. instead you are forced to manually recruit and this gets tedious. also the recruiting is very unrealistic.
Great college atmosphere (crowd, commentary, courts) The presentation is almost perfect. real espn, and cbs stat overlays with vital, and Gus johnson doing the commentary. the ncaa tournament in dynasty is also very exciting and has a great presentation, you can really tell your playing a tourney game. some good aggressive moves to the basket and hard slams. nice post game with a decent array of moves. and the new motion offense is the best play calling system for basketball games right now.
If you don't have a basketball game this would definitely be worth a buy if you like to run dynastys even though you will be yearning for a better product. This game has LOADS of potential EA needs to step it up alot next year though.

Gameplay is improved and less repetitive, however the recruiting training and overall extras are the exact same as last years game. A super bummer for me, I was hoping theyd improve to something like the NCAA football but no dice. Ireturned it after 3 days of play. No go 4 me ..Big Let Down
