    College Hoops 2K6 does a great job of replicating the emotional roller coaster that is college basketball.
  3. Pitting 2K's college game against EA's is a close call, but ultimately I suppose that this game's better price and A.I. give it the edge. Someone needs to fire the coach before it's guaranteed a tourney berth, though.
  4. Too much coaching, not enough action. [Jan 2006, p.86]
  5. It's just not very exciting to play or to watch, and for a college basketball game that just shouldn't be the case. [Mar 2006, p.90]

It just doesn't have the fun factor I'm not saying this is a sub-par game compared to previous years, it's not bad at all. It just doesn't have the fun factor that previous games have had. The new controls are also a bit confusing, making for a fairly-steep learning curve. The legacy mode is still solid, though, and the game itself is still worth at least a rental if you're a fan of college basketball. Full Review »
