Summary: I rented this game even after reading all of the reviews thinking maybe it would be better than what everyone was saying. So i decided to play my first game as my favorite team, the Boston College Eagles. Thats when i found its first obvious flaw. No, i didnt find this flaw it just stumbled upon me like all of the other ones. None of the numbers were accurate. WHere is the Troy Bell like point guard? I couldnt find it. My first game was against Brown.
Summary: Thankfully, I only rented this game! I am not going to write a huge review, but i just would like to point out why you should avoid this game at all costs. The graphics only look modestly better then a regular ps1 title. There is no sense of being in the game. When I selected Michigan State to play Duke at Cameran Indoor Stadium...there was no sense of the wild and crazy atmosphere you would expect from 2 great schools with basketball tradition.
Summary: This game was very disapointing.Only about half of the rosters are accurate and many of the players look like they're 40 years old.And another thing, my brother plays college ball he's 6'7" and about 210 pounds with black hair.This game has him at 6'2" 185 with blonde hair.But I would recommend not to buy this game.This game was definitely released way to soon.989 sports games are giving playstation 2 a bad name.
Summary: I just purchased a PS2 in the midst of March Madness, so of course I couldn't resist this game. Whoops. This game is a big dissapointment. The graphics are mediocre at best, certainly not anything near what the PS2 is capable of, the controls are limited, and the game play is wildly unrealistic (and not even in a just an 'overly arcade' fun way either). Stay clear of it, no matter how much you may be smitten with college ball.
Summary: Anyone who has had the misfortune of playing any PC game made by a company called Head Games will know exactly what it's like to play 989's NCAA Final Four 2001 for the Playstation 2. This game looks and plays like it was rushed out the door before it was fully developed and finished. The players move awkwardly, much of the time gliding across the court, and the graphics are, for lack of a better term, bizarre.
Summary: Although it does have alot of the real teams and players, this game is unrealistic. The player ratings are way off for some players, and in some cases(ie Jason Richardson from MSU) players who are good shooters and players can't make shots and are nearly useless. On the other hand, all you need to do is find a good shooter, even if he is a bad player, and keep shooting threes. If you time it right, you can make every shot.
Summary: If you have the opportunity, rent this title before you buy it. See what you think, and see if you do not agree with me. Like in years past I did not care for EA's March Madness title. The limited amount of division I teams left out some of my smaller college favorites and the inclusion of 16 women's teams (at the risk of sounding sexist) is just plain stupid.
Summary: i am not a big fan of this game. i love basketball and basketball games on systems. but this game has very slow gameplay and is much to easy. you can score like 60 points with one player in a game. the good thing about this game is all the teams you can be. but all in all dont buy this game if you have never played it before.
Summary: This game, as always, is a huge dissapointment for 989 Studios. The graphics are nowhere near PS2 levels. It looks almost identical to last years PS version. There is no dynasty mode. I played 8 games into a season as a mediocre team and was shooting 87% from the field and 81% from three. Way too easy to make shots for you and your opponent. You can rarely get a rebound in the rare instant you do miss.
