  • Conclusion: While there is no question that NCAA Basketball 09 still has some gameplay issues to correct, the addition of game tempo control, custom playbooks, effective pick-and-roll mechanics, and easy-to-use play calling options has made this game a viable alternative to the NBA titles for casual and hardcore gamers alike.
  • Pros: College atmosphere captured well, Deep playbook options to customize style of play, Easy-to-learn controls, New pick-and-roll mechanic is simple and effective.
  • Cons: Dribble moves rarely work, Defensive AI is not consistent, Response times during gameplay often slow, No online team play mode.

  • Excerpt: It seems that EA Sports got the message after OS gave last year's edition of March Madness a four out of 10 rating. The embarrassment was too much to handle and thus, EA had to change the name of the franchise from March Madness to NCAA Basketball.
  • Pros: Pregame focuses., Coach feedback system., Improved gameplay.
  • Cons: Dynasty menu changes a step back., Vanilla online options., Where is the atmosphere?

  • Conclusion: A good outing for NCAA Basketball 09 on the Playstation 3, not perfect, but good. NCAA Basketball 09 has the underlying element of what could be a huge step in the right direction, but the lack of depth ends up being the games great fault. With such a rich holiday market for gamers this is a hard game to recommend, but if you really want to get your taste for college basketball this season the game wouldn’t make a bad rental.
