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. I started off with the Campbell Fighting Camels (in the A-Sun conference, you have to start with really weak teams), got offered the head coaching job at Fordham (A-10, a major conference)two years later, accepted, and a few seasons later (and some national...
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. I'm sure the payoff comes from playing the game through several seasons and building your team, but who would want to invest that much time, given the initial frustrations?
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. The goods things are they got the right places in the NCAA Tourny, you got the campus store where yoou can buy jerseys and arenas, and it's like you are actually watching the game on ESPN. So overall a good game.
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. Don't get role of the hoop all the time. Overall: This game did pretty well and I am looking foward to next year's game.
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. My favorite option has been to take a team, and change the conference it plays in.
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. Heck, this game is so realistic every school has it's own real fight song! It even has names programed into the game.
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. It's that challenge to beat a team, no matter who they are, that makes this game better than the others. A win isn't just handed to you, you have to work for it.
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 him, this version makes you EARN your points. Granted, you can move the sliders to make any team (even Savannah State) an offensive powerhouse..
