Summary: I had been looking for a good basketball game and found College Hoops at thrift store for $2.50. The game has great graphics, a legacy mode, pass-no-go, a coach mode and you can play online. Overall I enjoyed playing hoops on PS2.
Summary: Great Aspects: This college basketball game is highly realistic and the breadth of the teams, jerseys, and stadiums is incredible. The Legacy mode is possibly the best career/franchise mode of any sports game to date.
Summary: Graphics are alright. Gameplay is smooth, not counting the overabundance of cutaway scenes. And the commentators were surprisingly good. I thought I would remark on Legacy Mode, seeing as how that's what separates this game from competitors. It's a great idea, but I felt it failed ultimately.
Summary: I can't give this game a 5 because every time you get a ball blocked they say it's out on you, they have the names all wrong so just use numbers, the announcers are so annoying and always say the same things, and you get called for reaching in way to many times.
Summary: This is ESPN 2K5. Sofar after NFL 2K5, the games in the 2k5 series have started to decline and get worse. This game is above average though. Pros: Looks more realistic with numbers (for once). Good graphics. Good announcers. Good schedules. Cons: Players names are incorrect. Free throws are hard.
Surprisingly, the best basketball game I've played!

Summary: I asked for the game for Christmas 2004 simply because of the price. What I got was a game I cannot stop playing, over two months later. The gameplay is fun, yet quite challenging. You have the ability to customize your schedule each season, and with over 300 teams, there are plenty to choose from.
The Best College Basketball Game that I have EVER played

Summary: This is the best ever college basketball game. The graphics are outstanding and the gameplay itself is so realistic. The college students say actual chants that are used at games, the atmosphere is nearly identical to watching a college game and the commentary is first rate.
Summary: I went into this game with very low expectations since the crop of new college basketball games have all been relative duds, but I was proven wrong ten-fold. This is the game that will define how college basketball games are made. No, this game is not easy, not in the least.
Summary: This is the fifth college basketball game I've owned, and without a doubt its THE BEST I've ever seen. The game play is smooth, realistic, and very exciting. Unlike other college basketball games where anyone on your roster can throw down monster jams even with five good defensive players covering...
