    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.

    Worth much more. 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.

    At $19.99 this game is the best steal in videogame basketball. The top-rated basketball action offers just the right mix for players, coaches, and budding athletic directors alike.
  2. If you're a fan of college basketball, the attractive presentation, smooth online play, and deep legacy mode are all good reasons to check out ESPN College Hoops 2K5.
  3. With a superior dynasty mode, better graphics, good enough to be fun controls, and a sick $20 price tag, I can not think of an excuse not to have this game.
