Brent, I'm really enjoying this one so far. I'm not sure why some people thought all the players felt and played the same because I'm not seeing that at all. The presentation and crowd interactions are both great and the graphics are very good. My only complaint is that sometimes players don't react quickly to loose balls whether it's a rebound or ball heading out of bounds. Other than that minor complaint, I'm loving this game. I also didn't lose my custom player names after the dynamic update this morning.


It's always bothered me that college sports game don't usually sell as well as their pro counterparts. I'm not a college sports fan at all but I can appreciate a good sports game whether it's basketball, football or baseball. I have no idea who the players are, but if the game simulates the sport well, I don't care who I'm using. It's a shame more people don't feel the same way. If they did, we'd probably have an NCAA Baseball on this generation of systems.

Always boggled me with basketball. I mean you get 300+ teams, all the different arenas, college atmosphere, numerous play styles and matchups and the greatest sporting event known to man, March Madness. What do you get with the NBA? A long drawn out season and a playoff system that is usually not interesting until the last few rounds.  It is all about the superstars. Everybody wants to play as Kobe or Leborn.  Football could be similar if it followed a playoff similar playoff structure.

To be fair college baseball only existed due to EA Sports losing the MLB license.  College Baseball, hockey and lacrosse all have a following but none of them will ever be successful in video game form.

It boggles my mind that people would prefer to play an inferior game just because it has professional athletes in it. Give me better gameplay ANY day of the week.

Well picked mine up, got the last gutted copy at Gamestop. I hate gutted copies because they have those sales stickers all over them.

Brent, I'd love to hear your initial impressions. I just played a tournament using Rutgers and can't get enough of this game.

I am enjoying it so far. A couple games in and the camera is much better than last years. I am playing on All-Conference and it is pretty challenging. I have noticed that the AI defense does a really good job playing the lanes and picking off passes. The presentation (especially ESPN games) is truly the best I have seen in a sports game.

Your thoughts Jason on the game so far?  I am away from my PS3 until Sat and only had a chance to play it that one session.

I'm absolutely loving it so far, but then again, I don't pick games apart like some of the so-called experts. I'm not really seeing any of the issues mentioned on OS like a lack of human shooting fouls, CPU not taking threes and CPU big men not passing back out from the post. I'm not even having the issue with players stepping out of bounds like I did with the demo. The bottom line is that it's just fun to play.

To give you an idea of how much I like this game, I've gone in and given made-up names to all the players on my team (Rutgers) and know them all by name now. It reminds me of my days playing Bases Loaded on the NES with my fictional players that I formed a bond with.

Brent, you still playing this? After playing NBA Live for a few weeks I've come back to NCAA Basketball and can now see that it's clearly the better game.

Not playing anything right now. My PS3 is still in Perryton. I might be stopping up there to get it and my truck after my doctors appt in Amarillo next week.
