    Using the same game engine as its NBA counterpart, 2K5 plays better than it did a year ago, in part because the A.I. is way smarter. [Jan 2005, p.128]

    It's that A.I. thing that's a killer. The price is definitely right, but basing it on gameplay alone, this one lags behind this season's No. 1: "March Madness." [Jan 2005, p.118]

    For the online play, it basically comes down to this - College Hoops 2K5 has all the features that "March Madness 2005" has and more. [Jan 2005, p.100]

Plays like real basketball, more so than other publishers titles. If you make the proper adjustments to the other coach and personel based on what you have, you will find success. Just like real b-ball. Legacy is top notch! fun to play the games too. Some bugs, but easily overlooked for 20 or less used. Full Review »

    Legacy mode provided a lot of fun...I was glad to see a mode that was so fun from a game which I had never played anything else from the Legacy mode provided a lot of fun...I was glad to see a mode that was so fun from a game which I had never played anything else from the series. A good game overall, but gameplay was not quite as good as an EA sports game. Full Review »
