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: 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: 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.
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: i saw there was a previous interview where somebody didnt enjoy this game and honestly i can see why but let me explain. This game and college hoops 2k6 are the main competitors for college bball games this year and wanting to lock one up for a xmas present i decided it would be wise to rent both first and i was certainly glad i did.
