Summary: I think it's funny that a previous reviewer said that computer is a scoring machine on JV level.... on VARSITY, I'm winning games by a score of 144 to 17, playing 6 minute or 7 minutes per half. Scoring machine? I just don't think so. You can tweak the computer game play by going into the options... how accurate do you want them to be? I've played on the hardest level and still won rather convincingly.
Summary: Looking at some of the reviews I thought the game was bad but I bought it anyway. The game is a bit fun. Some parts need work but fun. I really like the commentary because they make it seems like real-life. The music okay but could've had something else than marching band music. Dynasty mode is pretty cool. And THANKFULLY you can switch the players numbers to random names. So rent it and give it a shot. You'll never know.......
Summary: This game will piss you off real quick..and I really gave it a chance. The computer AL is just not balance right or something, It's no fun trying to rebound when you got the position, make a pass to an open player, or make the wide open shots!.. but no problem for the computer though...(smile) No matter where you set the settings ..it's either too hard or too easy and this just sucks the fun right out of it. Well guys or ladies..you've been warn!
Summary: JJ Redick is in the Game. Number 4 on the Duke Roster. They have him at SF, with D Nelson at shooting guard. EA also got the skill set for Mcroberts fairly close to the real thing. 06 of MM has improved dunking (similar to the Superstar Dunking in NBA Live 06). Arenas dont look that much different from 05. If your a college basketball fan or DUKE fan, you will enjoy this game. I agree with the other Reviewers that the guard defense takes the most practice.
Summary: if your struggling playing defense you need to learn how to cut off the passing lanes. when you do that push up on the right analog button and good defenders will steal the ball. you can also slap the full court man to man on and get in front of the player the inbounder is trying to pass to. you can go on huge runs by doing this.
Overly complicated and difficult to master = not much fun

Summary: I bought this title from EA on the basis of their NCAA Football game, which I absolutely got hooked on with their 2004 version. I didn't own a college basketball game, and thought this would be a nice game to play and build up a weak team into a Duke or North Carolina-like dynasty. What I found was that, even in the easiest setting, (junior varsity) the computer is a veritable scoring machine.
Summary: This game is fun, but we also had problems with the game freezing up. The freezing was bad to the point where we thought the game was defective and returned it. The third party seller did not refund shipping as promised.
Summary: Wow, just stick w/ march madness 2005 becuz this gME is terrible. It is slow gameplay and the player ratings arent accurate. I bought the game and the next day i returned it b/c it sucked so much.
