  1. The Legacy mode is incredibly comprehensive and it's something that'll keep players busy for hours on end. [Jan 2003, p.84]
  2. Definitely the best college basketball game we've ever played. [Jan 2003, p.24]
  3. 90
    Where the wheat gets separated from the chaff, however, is the A.I.; and Sega’s game is all whole-grain goodness.
  4. While the graphics are not as superior as it was with "NBA 2K3" or the controls as super smooth as "NBA Live 2003," the game is still a shining example of how a college basketball game should be made.
  5. No console hoop game to this date has fully realized the smoothness of real life basketball, but 2K3 is awfully close. Less cinematic and slower than March Madness, it captures the look, sound, and most importantly, the feel of the college game.
