  1. If you’ve skipped a few March Madness semesters and haven’t joined the PS3/360 generation, there’s plenty here to sink your teeth into.

    While there's gobs of visual polish, including a vast array of impressive generic player heads, 09's gameplay double dribbles in too many key spots, making this little more than a palatable No. 6 seed -- it's worth supporting if you're a rabid fan of the sport, but it's far from Final Four material.
  3. There’s no excuse for this pathetic release by Electronic Arts. Sure, they refined a few things but when push comes to shove, gamers shouldn’t have to endure mediocrity within their favorite sport since there’s no other alternative.
  4. 51
    A lackluster offering at best. The game doesn’t provide its audience with anything new, apart from a quartet of new tournaments, or improve at all upon the drab gameplay of previous editions of the game.
