    For those of us who only buy one game per sport per year, NCAA 2K3 is still playing second fiddle to the pioneer of the genre, courtesy of EA Sports.
  2. You'll see a lot of poor passes (regardless of your quarterback choice), poor tackling (even for a computer-controlled player), hot and cold A.I. and many, many wide open receivers dropping balls. This is probably the most frustrating aspect of NCAA 2k3.
  3. Electronic Gaming Monthly
    The meat of this beast is decent - not great, but decent. [Oct 2002, p.184]
  4. Official U.S. Playstation Magazine
    In every way that matters, College 2K3 doesn't hold a candle to EA Sports' benchmark NCAA series. [Sept 2002, p.115]
  5. PSM Magazine
    We would like to have seen a bit more effort put into the dynasty mode. [Oct 2002, p.35]
  6. A good-looking college football title that, despite being high on gameplay modes and playbook strategies, isn't quite as fine tuned to the sport it portrays as "NCAA Football 2003".
  7. GameNow
    Improved, but still trails EA's "NCAA 2003" in every conceivable department. [Sept 2002, p.52]
  8. The problem is that EA’s "NCAA Football 2003" is a MUCH better game then NCAA2k3. EA’s game makes 2k3 pale in comparison.
  9. Disappointing, especially coming from SEGA.
