  • Summary: Player Disposition: Each player has an inherent set of attributes: consistency, focus, and confidence. Utilize practice drills, scrimmages, and weekly meetings to raise these attributes to their peaks, so that you can heighten your Player Psyche and optimize your players’ performances. Coach's Clipboard: Whether it's a full court press or a quick shot at the end of the half, coach your team to victory through specific timeout directions with Timeout Focus. Improve your zone defense efficiency and exploit your opponent's weaknesses by having total control over individual zone replacements with Zone Substitutions. Selection Sunday: No day in college basketball is bigger than Selection Sunday. Watch a broadcast of your team’s placement into the NCAA Tournament. Listen to commentary as video clips give you the low down on all the bracket match ups. [2K Sports] Expand

    While the EA game is solid, it just doesn't stack up with 2K6.
  2. College Hoops 2K6 combines solid graphics/controls, with a deep Legacy mode, that should keep your attention far past this NCCA season.

    Greg Gumble and Clark Kellogg do a nice job with postgame highlights and their "Selection Sunday" show lends real NCAA flavor to the proceedings. In the booth, Vern Lundquist and Bill Rafferty do a solid job of keeping commentary interesting.
  4. 80
    One thing 2K Sports continually proves, however, is that it can bring the game even when it doesn't look as sharp as the competition.
  5. 80
    A solid and engrossing basketball game that may lack the high quality presentation and panache of EA's NCAA franchise, but holds its own with an engaging and fairly deep set of options and selectable play modes.
  6. If you are looking for a graphical prowess to be found in your college hoops game, look elsewhere.
  7. 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]

    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. Collapse
