  1. An outstanding achievement. College basketball has never been so thoroughly, enjoyably re-created. Sports management sims are rarely so captivating, no matter what real-life pastime they represent.
  2. The game does have its flaws and a robust feel to it, but knowing the dedication of the .400 software team and their timely updates and dedication to the franchise, I am eagerly awaiting the second edition.
  3. The perfect game for gamers who are real fans of college basketball game, and want that feeling of complete control and realism that’s largely absent from other games in the genre. The concept is brilliant, and largely well-executed, but the bugs and glitches detract a great deal from the experience.
  4. If you love pouring over sports stats and the strategy that goes into building a winning basketball program, you'll find Tournament Dreams to be both fascinating and addicting.
  5. All these great features are thrown out the window due to a suspect simulation engine that simply doesn't make a lot of sense. [June 2003, p.85]
