Summary: I bought this back in 2011 and still play this game because there's someone online who actually updates all 250+ teams in the country fairly accurately. The only thing is that the uniforms will be stuck in 2007 and so will the courts/areanas. I just wish there was a way to push the 3-point line back to college regulation post-2008.
Summary: The last great college basketball game. Why they don't make these anymore is beyond me. They are missing out. The PC does get carried away hitting ridonkulous 3's late in the game to "make it close" but otherwise great. I am so glad to have this back in my possession.
Summary: Although this is the greatest college basketball game ever, it does have some issues. The graphics of the players are a little iffy and you don't make all of your layups, i mean i know you shouldn't make them all but its a lot. Yet there are so many great things about this game to. The court, players (not faces), fans all look real and give a very good appeal. Also you can create a player, team, plays, and chants. The recruiting in legacy could also be improved a little.
Once again 2K Sports is on top of the College Games

Summary: College Hoops 2K8 is a great overall game with few flaws. What was good about this game was the gamepley. The gameplay is fast paced and is easy to get the hang if you play smart.One person said that easy layups are always missed. Now they will miss if there is a defender near buy contesting the shot. The post is so much easier in 2K then March Madness because boxing down defenders won't knock down the defender for an offensive foul.
Summary: 2K8 basketball games just get it right. They offer some of the most realistic gameplay ever seen in a video game. If you are looking for a true sim, CH 2K8 is the game to get. You can run with multiple teams in your Dynasty mode (Legacy, create and easily modify players, and what's neat about this year's game is you can creat a prospect at the high school level, play with him in the summer camp games.
Conclusion: Interesting this has reviewed generally poorly - Teamxbox is out of step in giving it a 9. I took the risk in buying this game and find it a peculiar mix of ideas - some well executed others not so. The big issue with it I have is the chugging drop in framerate - particularly on certain tracks. I fervently hope that an update to fix this is in the pipeline as i have never played a game with such bad issues in this department.
