Overall, this game is a huge improvement from last year's version. The game play is alot smoother, graphics are very clean and the new arenas are great!! Having said that there are some complaints that I have. I'm not sure if this is true for other schools, but I've been playing as Kentucky and their entire freshman class is missing from the game. The create-a-player or player editor is a pain because you have to exit after you save changes for a single player, so to name 12 guys on your team takes about 30 mins. The crowd chants are really cool and school specific and I like the idea that not every game is a sellout, but teams like the Dukes and UKs draw huge road crowds even if the team is ranked low. Basically, low ranking for either team involved means very small crowd for the game. The commentary is pretty smooth, but the sound quality can be scratchy sometimes. I like the dynasty mode, it's modeled after the football game, but the rankings are a little out of wack. If don't play the Maui Invitational, your team is dropped way out of the rankings just because a team like Iowa State is 8-0 and you haven't played yet. The scheduling another problem. You have to send out letters to schools to ask to play them, a really cool idea, but disappointing when the computer wouldn't let me play Louisville, my archrival. Overall, the game is fun to play and is much more of a sim than last year. There is still some room to grow, though.

First the good. The gameplay for this game is just great. Although not as clean-running as NBA Live of the same year, it is a super game that captures the feeling of playing the college game. You can play any team, and the feeling is the same. Just a lot of fun to play. Good quickplay, and good coaching options too to tailor the games the way you want to play. Good customization.
Now the bad.
1) Load times are long. Not terribly so, but just enough to aggrivate you every time. Just a little longer than needs be.
2)Edit player. You have to exit out of the entire menu. To do every player would take more time than I have, or most humans have. I bought a memory card to have the names. Granted, EA cannot use the college names, but don't make it so hard to put them in!!!!
3) Coaching contracts are a joke. I made the final 4 three years in a row, and was fired. Turn them off, is my advice, then you can play as long as you want. If you are fired, you have to find another team to play with. I would prefer to keep my one college going, so that option should have been included.
4)Simulating games. Incredibly tedious. Get some speed!!!!!
Final analysis: Buy used, if you can. Hope to see improvement next year. I will use this for draft classes, but for basketball gameplay I use NBA LIve

Let me start with the positive: The gameplay is pretty good, which makes up for a lot. However, the problems are overwhelming. A list:
1) Like in NCAA Football, you get to pick your favorite team the first time you start up the game. Unlike NCAA Football, there is no way to save this setting, so the screen asking you to pick your favorite team pops up EVERY time you enter the game.
2) There is no auto-saving or auto-loading, so every time you enter the game, you have to load your settings, your user profile and your dynasty. And instead of asking you after every game you play if you would like to save everything, you have to go through and do it separately. Save user profile, save dynasty, save gets tedious.
3) Typing in names is nuts. Every time you type in a player's name and save it, it takes you all the way back out to the main roster menu and you have to start again. Click edit rosters, scroll through the hundreds of teams to find yours, then scroll through the players to get the one you want to edit. Just doing the 11 or 12 players on your team is frustrating.
4) You can't use this year's actual schedule. You either have to choose your out-of-conference opponents (and hope they will accept your challenge) or have your out-of-conference opponents randomly selected for you. Then the dates of the games are randomly selected, so even if you get all the teams on your team's schedule this season to accept your challenges, the order in which you play those games will be nothing like the actual order that your team played them.
5) When you put the ball out of bounds, the little EA Sports logo swipes across the screen to cut to the throw-in, and the opposing team throws it in way to fast, sometimes even before the EA logo is finished swiping.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Nathan on March 23, 2004
I had such high expectations for this game. After playing NCAA Football 2004, I highly anticipated purchasing this game. However after I had, I was not pleased. The rosters are not updated for the 2003-04 season. Many 2 or 3 year players were left off the rosters. The player editing is slow and tedious because you have to go back to the previous screen before selecting another player to edit. Each time you start the game you have to reselect your favorite team, unlike NCAA Football in which it saves your favorite team in the settings. Dynasty play is a burden, and I was very disappointed to see that they do not have the correct 2003-04 schedules. Instead thay are randomly generated. And even then in Dynasty Mode you can only choose one team and only play that teams' games. I hated this most when I reached the tournament, because I wanted to play out each game and I could only play the user games. Recruiting is confusing compared to the NCAA Football's recruiting style in that in NCAA Football you receive feedback on how the recruit responded to your recruiting tactics. March Madness leaves you stabbing in the dark. I think EA could have taken a few notes from their NCAA Football to make March Madness a more user friendly game. With all that being said the actual game play is pretty good. If you are not concerned with Dynasties and recreating the current season, and you are just looking for an arcade basketball game with no accurate depiction of the actual teams or sesons, then this is the game for you. If not look elsewhere. I'm going to check out 989's Final Four.
