Summary: I owned 2008 before this and decided to get this version, just because 2008's controls sucked. Still the old and new versions were fun and this ups the ante just right. The graphics are better, the controls tighter and the action solid.
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...
Summary: NCAA Basketball 09 is a very good basketball game, but if you own a previous version of a college hoops game, think twice before spending the money to upgrade. I own "College Hoops 2K7" which I purchased for $5, and IMO this game is not all that different or much better.
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HOWEVER, as someone who is not a college basketball superfan,but still enjoys playing a basketball that might be a year out of date...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.
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.
