    Fast-paced, big on fun, and contains the best passing engine on any hoops game. [Feb 2003, p.67]
  2. With six game modes, a complete Legacy mode, and most of the Division 1 teams represented, NCAA College Basketball 2k3 is the most complete college hoops experience around.

    My favorite basketball game this year...If Kush and Visual Concepts can iron out these troubles and focus more on the Legacy Mode next year, this could be among the elite sports games of 2003.
  4. 84
    With a great balance of realism and playability, NCAA Basketball 2K3 shines as a beacon for collegiate hoops fans.
  5. I love this game to death. Although flawed, it is still a lot of fun to play and gives you a good feel for the college game.
  6. Still has a few rough spots on both the offensive and defensive sides of the ball that would make any fan of the sport throw his or her controller in frustration.
  7. Nintendo Power
    70
    The play control and range of features are on par wtih those of Sega's "NBA Basketball 2K3," only with a college basketball experience. [Dec 2002, p.214]
  8. The excellent legacy mode is already there, so the game is just a few gameplay tweaks away from greatness.
  9. Play Magazine

    The Legacy mode is incredibly comprehensive and it's something that'll keep players busy for hours on end. [Jan 2003, p.84]
  10. 90
    The freshman debut of this series has quickly moved to the head of the class, but it has to share the seat of honor with "March Madness."
  11. All 3 versions play the same, but with the option to go online, you may want to stick with the Xbox or PS2 versions.
