  1. While [it] improves upon last year's version in almost every area, most of these improvements -- other than the additional (and much needed) modes of play -- are subtle rather than drastic. Thus, as a complete package, it still seems lacking.
  2. There have been a few improvements. Just if you're looking for a vast improvement you won't find it here.
  3. When you've been spoiled by the big boys like "NBA 2K2" or "NBA Live," this seems so freshman.
  4. Sub par game physics and the no-skill-needed-to-play is a huge turn off. And graphically only an average title that would have looked great on the PSOne.
  5. Final Four gets a nonstop trip to Dumpsville. [Dec 2001, p.50]
  6. As far as truly providing the sights, sounds and (most importantly) the feel of college basketball, this game just doesn't get it done. Brick!
  7. The artificial intelligence is brilliant...for a goldfish. For an AI program, however, it's pathetic.

The only reason I gave it a four is because it had a neat franchise mode. Then soon when you are playing the franchise mode you just get board. I was beating teams easily by 20 points or more.
