Things I like:
Motion Offense: It's by far the best addition I like from NCAA Basketball series. It gives the player a genuine feeling of how basketball is played at the collegiate level. Once you master the MO and fluent with calling plays, you can beat anybody on any court with any team in the country. It's what NCAA basketball really is and why people like the sport! This EA team has really done a fantastic job on mimicking the real basketball experience. I really wish the NBA series could learn from this team.
Skill set: Like I mentioned, I really like the way your favorite school team is capable of beating anybody in the country, let it be Kansas, Duke, Kentucky, or Syracuse. Every team is at least given one skilled player that can make all the difference in the world, if you use him right of course. Being mid-major or even C ranked in the game shouldn't affect your confidence in your favorite players. Every team has its strengths and weaknesses, all you need to do is to find the right offensive approach (man versus zone) and exploit those weaknesses (post versus perimeter). Defense is also strongly emphasized in this game. With a good use of the "defensive assist" button and the correct defensive play-calling, a great defensive team, such as Purdue, can very well keep an opponent under 50 points and 40% shooting and grind out a win. Again, very realistic!
Commentary: There are two teams from CBS and ESPN. I prefer the CBS team as the ESPN version can sometimes get repetitive. However, Dick Vitale does bring his best game with many of his signature phrases (XXXXXX, BABY! etc.) Having Erin Andrews on the sideline every time you change tempo also gives a more realistic feeling.
Things that can be improved:
Out of position players: This seems to happen in quite a few EA games. The classical example is when you're on a fast break, your wing players sometimes run so fast and so wildly that they get out-of-bounce when you pass the ball to them. Another example is when a player dunks and falls behind the baseline, his body is virtually teleported back onto the court after the inbound pass, which deducts a few points from the realistic scale.
Online gameplay freeze-up: There are two problems here. First one is when you choose Play Now, you get matched up against a random player but you won't be able to select teams or to proceed without an unknown amount of wait time. You can choose to wait or select exit and enter again. The other happens when you enter a timeout and choose to end timeout too quickly the game will freeze at the timeout frame, for both players.
Overall, I'd give this game five stars despite a few glitches and inconvenience. I hope you all enjoy the game for a little longer since there's not going to be a NCAA Basketball 2011, which is really a shame.
