Summary: In their rush to release this game for PS2 they forgot some VERY IMPORTANT pieces to this game. 1. The team list is missing a large group of teams. I think somewhere around 150 teams. 2. No season mode. This is the most glaring mistake. How can you have a basketball game like this and NOT have a season mode?? 3. No dynasty mode. Once again, BIG mistake leaving this out. The gameplay is fun, but without the above items, this game only goes so far.
Summary: I am a devoted lover of college basketball, and as such a love of college basketball games. This game was a natural purchase for me. Admittedly, I purchased it knowing that there was no season or dynasty mode. I don't think I realized, though, just how much those modes are the make-or-break parts of a good sports game. I must say that the graphics for the game are well done, and the gameplay is an improvement on the NBA Live 2002 engine.
Summary: This game isn't near what I expected from EA Sports. I'll give credit for the sharp graphics, but there are only two modes of play: exhibition and tournament. There is NO SEASON or DYNASY mode!!! Unbelievable!!! EA, you've again failed to make a solid college basketball product. I'll be returning my copy tomorrow. Potential buyers beware.
Summary: March Maddness 2002 is probably the worst EA Sports game to come out on the PS2. The lack features such as a season mode, real announcers, or the women's teams from the PS1 editions all make this game not worth the purchase prise it. If you are dying to play college ball, rent it. Otherwise, put your money elsewhere.

Summary: This game is way to easy. I beat Duke with Boston College 158 to 50. The graphics are bad and it is to easy to steel. Also most of the time when you do a alee-opp it misses. The commontaters are very bad to. Try NCAA Final Four 2002 its way better.
