Summary: I loved playing the college hoops games but unfortunately they don't make them anymore. I had fun playing this game, but the graphics aren't the greatest and the gameplay has it's flaws. I wish they still made these games because you just can't find them anymore.
Summary: This game is nothing new really, if you're familiar with the EA Sports NCAA basketball games, you know what you're getting. I find them very enjoyable and wish they didn't discontinue the series.
Summary: I've played just about every edition of EA's college basketball series and 2009 may be the least enjoyable and the most poorly designed. It's a joke. I'm not even sure where to start, but even the smallest things are screwed up, like the difficulty in selecting a player to control even with direct switch. Or how about the fact that you can't select a simple ball screen from your on-the-fly controls -- the most basic element of basketball and it isn't an option.
Summary: I'll start by saying that the graphics for 09 are better than all the other games(except for later editions). the gameplay is average at best when compared to real life. the thing that really gets me pissed is when u go up for a dunk and then a defender from behind in midair all of a sudden somehow holds u down and ur player takes a ridicoulous shot.
Summary: This game is not without its flaws listed in other reviews. HOWEVER, as someone who is not a college basketball superfan,but still enjoys playing a basketball that might be a year out of date... this is perfect for me. First of all, I only paid $13 (its $8 now) which was $47 less than the 2010 version! I think I can wait til next year and get the 2010 version for cheaper while I play this game and repeat the process every year! Up to date rosters are not a must for me.
