    Great for understanding the recruiting sides to college athletics

    I enjoyed it considering that after you become elite in the dynasty mode, there is no further real challenge left to achieve. Over all though EA Sports did a fantastic job once again! But still the do...

    You can buy this game at a great price ( less than $20). And for the price, its well worth it. The game play is very good. The arena's are true to life, and with the coach on the sideline, along with...

    This game so far has been fun overall. I am a huge 2k fan and it still doesn't fill the void in my heart but.. it will have to do. The tempo feature is something that i really like. If your big into...

    i was very disappointed after playing this game. EA sports should stick to football. the game is awful. do not buy it

    the game is not all bad as long as you haven't played 2K8. once you have played the smooth operation of 2k sports this disaster is a train wreck. its very choppy and you get stuck in animations. i'm...

    An improvement over previous March Madness games.

    I love college basketball. I have never been truly loyal to the 2K game or EA sports game, but the last few years I have bought College Hoops 2K simply because it's been a better game. However this ye...

    If you strongly prefer the College Hoops genre, this is a must have. If you simply want a basketball game maybe not.

    I like to play a season and get to the playoffs; this review focuses on offline gameplay as I don't care about franchise or online features. I really wanted to like this game and for the most par...

    I'm a 2k series fan, and definetly not a fan of EA Basketball games, but....I'm liking this.

    So i havent played a EA sports basketball game since NBA LIVE 99. I've been deticated to the 2k series and have loved all of them. However, I only really purchased this because 2K dropped the ball and...

    This game is decent but not that all great

    Rated on December 27, 2008 by Nemo4444

    Ncaa Basketball is a fun but sometimes frustrating game. In Dynasty, you can choose any school you wish, i chose North Carolina for example. The first year i lose to the second round in the tourney...

    NCAA Basketball 09 is surprisingly good this year. The graphics are great, as well as the game-play.

    Rated on January 24, 2009 by gamereviewer371

    NCAA Basketball is surprisingly good this year. The graphics are outstanding, and the game-play is pretty good. One of the new features of this year's game is the new "set the tempo" feature where you...

    NCAA 09 has its flaws, big flaws actually, but it's the kind of game that is hard to put down.

    Rated on February 25, 2009 by kingamez

    Alright, lets start with graphics. They are incredible. Other than the Madden games, this game has the best graphics of any major sports game to date. The animations are smooth and realistic but with ...
