5.0 out of 5 stars Well constructed simulation. December 26, 2007
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this title for my new PS3 to replace 2K6 and 2K7 for the Xbox. This review will largely focus on the differences and improvements between the PS3 version and the older lesser versions. Reviewed at 1080i on a 53" CRT RPTV.

1) The graphics and engine are substantially improved over prior incantations. Player appearance is far sharper, as is general presentation. A substantial amount of detail has been paid to little graphical items - for example the cameramen on the sidelines are perfectly rendered and move appropriately, players move from the bench to the scorers table after you order substitutions to wait for the dead ball, after timeouts your players move back onto the court as the mascot/cheerleaders leave it, finally arenas are well rendered with accurate center logos (e.g. UCLA first to 100 championships). Also the animations are far smoother and more creative. Overall much improved.

2) Audio is generally comparable to prior versions of the game, and this is very good as the prior games had good sound design. The biggest difference is this game actually supports DTS (even though the box only says Dolby Digital), this produces sound that is generally richer and fuller. All sound options are individually adjustable (Commentary, PA, FX, band, crowd noise, chants, player chatter, etc.) thus allowing you to create the blend that you find most enjoyable. Teams fight songs are included and played back at appropriate times. The commentary is also generally solid and features the same guys as 2K7.

3) Gameplay is much more realistic than 2K7. In 2k7 on Xbox it would not be uncommon for me to amass 40+ steals in a game as the AI was reckless with the ball, in 2K8 for the PS3 the AI is much smarter with passes, and steals are closer to 10 per game.

This is still the best college basketball game out there. The best sports games have been ruined in this "next generation."

EA is AWESOME at MLB baseball games, and now they can't make them.

2K is AWESOME at NFL football games, and they aren't allowed to make any.

It's a real shame. If you want the best college b-ball game, you need to get this one. Hopefully 2K will be allowed to make another one of these games, b/c it's a real gem. It's a complete game -- whether you are looking for a good, shallow pickup game, or a full-featured simulation.

The same goes for the NBA 2K series. I would purchase NBA 2K10, but there's no NCAA Basketball 2K10. NBA 2K10 is awesome, but I just don't get as much enjoyment out of it, without a coinciding NCAA 2K10. ....so I bought NBA 2K8:)

5.0 out of 5 stars There's a reason they were the #1 rated game... May 31, 2009
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I thought this game was official. The graphics are great, the game play is better. The controls are a bit difficult to get used to but they have the best free throw controls I've ever used on a game, and once you get the hang of the controls you'll be on the edge of your seat. A con is It is very difficult to make out the menus if you don't have a HDTV but believe me it's worth the purchase. I was pissed to find out that they are no longer making this series of games. I was an avid EA sports game player until I stumbled upon ESPN College Hoops 2K5 and I never looked back. This game will be a classic game to have, if you don't have it should be on your list of items to purchase. Get it before it's gone.

4.0 out of 5 stars New Controls Confusing but still fun October 31, 2008
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I've been a College Hoops fan since 2k6 and have been playing them ever since. It's been a great series of games that really haven't changed much over the years. That's why I was a little confused that the controls on 2k8 were so different. Some things are the same but there was just enough difference that it made it hard for me to just pick it up and start my career mode going. I also don't know why they don't make the view default to the 2k mode because that's what I prefer but that's just my preference. Still, it's a great game and I can't wait for the college basketball season to start. Go N.C. State!

5.0 out of 5 stars Still the best August 9, 2013
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
Still the best College B-ball game out there. Unfortunate that EA got greedy, made terrible basketball games, and then dumped the entire franchise! This game doesn't compare to the new NBA 2k series but its still very good. There are also people out there keeping the rosters up to date, can be kind of a pain to upload tho!

This is my first review EVER online for any video game...or anything for that matter but felt compelled to give a quick review of this game.

I bought this game a while back and like so many of my other games, something new/shiny comes out and I end up trading most of them in for the latest and greatest. I've played College Hoops 2k7, 2K8, NBA 2k8-2K12 (which I still own 12 as of now) so I am very familiar with the 2K Basketball series. While I really like NBA 2K12, I really just couldn't get into it like I did 2K11. So, long story short, I was ordering something else from Amazon and checked to see what was cheap for PS3 and came across this for VERY cheap. I went ahead and ordered it as I thought, "hey ,for this price maybe I should give this game another go around as it was fun but I didn't play it for very long..."

When I got the game and fired it up for the first time, I came to realize how fun this game is!! Not only is the presentation AWESOME (especially the crowds, weekly wrapup shows, the selection show, etc...) but the game runs so smooth and fluid. One big thing (which is very realistic) is that combpared to the NBA game, you can't just size up someone, do a crossover, then to toward the hoop for a layup/dunk. Just like the real NCAA, you have to move the ball around, take advantage of matchups, and find the open man otherwise you'll get crushed. This is not a game where individual players can dominate so much like the pros.

One thing I did find a little disconcerting is the amount/accuracy of 3 pointers from average/below average teams the CPU will put up; even on starter difficulty. At the same time, though, it is exhilirating to drain numerous threes if you have good perimiter shooters on your team.
