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: ...which honestly ain't so great. The reason why: I think of all the games I loved from the very first time I played them. It didn't take time to adjust to things I didn't like. It didn't take time to brave a tough learning curve and master awkward play control. Those are the games that stuck right away and became instant favorites. One of those favorites was NCAA March Madness 2003 for PS2. The play-control was very user-friendly.
