  • Excerpt: March Madness 06 features all of the same gameplay modes as last year - including online play, which is solid, if unspectacular. If you're a hardcore hoops fan, most of your time will be spent in the game's dynasty mode, which allows you to head up any Division 1 team in hopes of leading them to the NCAA tourney.

NCAA March Madness 06 Review

GameSpot
4 December 2005
  • Excerpt: Fall is in full swing, and for college sports fans around the country, that means basketball is just around the corner. EA Sports has shipped March Madness 06 nice and early to whet our appetites for the upcoming season. While some great strides have been made since last year, as far as the actual gameplay is concerned, the dynasty mode is still broken, which makes the game feel like an incomplete product.
  • Pros: Lockdown stick feature works well, Gameplay feels right--like a college basketball game should
  • Cons: Dynasty mode still feels broken, Graphics starting to look really dated, Can't swap plays in play-calling system while in-game

  • Conclusion: I may be in a minority by saying it, but do we really need a new sports installment every single year? I know that the teams and such change with every season, but with such little development time for a game, it's very hard to expect a "better" experience than what the previous year offered. For the most part that's something that suffers from.

  • Conclusion: It's too bad the development team hasn't worked out the issues with the franchise mode in March Madness. Slowly but surely it's starting to lock down a real college feel and atmosphere with the actual gameplay. If you never play dynasty modes and don't mind a somewhat rough-looking game, then March Madness 06 could suit your needs just fine. But if you're looking for a complete package of college basketball, then you'll probably need to look elsewhere.
  • Pros: Lockdown stick feature works well, Gameplay feels right--like a college basketball game should.
  • Cons: Dynasty mode still feels broken, Graphics starting to look really dated, Can't swap plays in play-calling system while in-game.

  • Excerpt: EA Sports served up a pretty disappointing game this year with their NBA basketball title, NBA Live 06. The gameplay was still too fast and as a result it really took away from the simulation experience. However, EA Sports’ college game, NCAA March Madness 06, is one of the best basketball games ever to come from EA Sports. March Madness improves on almost everything that disappointed me about Live, and I had a much better experience with it.
