  • Summary: NCAA March Madness 08 has created a strategic new gameplay experience called Dynamic Post Play that enables you to take complete control over running your offense through the post, and defending your opponent in the paint. Experience the intensity of a strategic match-up on each possession,NCAA March Madness 08 has created a strategic new gameplay experience called Dynamic Post Play that enables you to take complete control over running your offense through the post, and defending your opponent in the paint. Experience the intensity of a strategic match-up on each possession, outwit your opponent by creating a favorable mismatch, and then make a move that scores the bucket to lift your team and your fans to victory. For the first time, you have complete control over dozens of new offensive post moves, including finesse ones like an up-and-under, drop step, hook spin, jump hook, and pump fake, and the ability to combine moves together. Animations can be interrupted at any time to transition into a new move, enabling you to read and respond to the defense, just like real life. Take command of the post on defense with strategic positioning to dominate down low -- guard your opponent man-to-man, front him to deny the entry pass or read the offense and go for the steal. NCAA March Madness 08 finally makes dream match-ups a reality, enabling you to replay classic games in college basketball history. Featuring more than 70 classic teams, take the court as the 1972 UCLA Bruins against any of the great North Carolina Tar Heels teams of the 1980s, the Duke Blue Devils of the 1990s or the two-time defending national champion University of Florida Gators. In addition, the ultimate teams for dozens of Division I programs have been created enabling you to go head-to-head to determine the best team in the history of college basketball.

  1. This season, EA has made it easy to skip March Madness. Let's hope it's the end of the era once and for all, lest they continue to heap insults upon hoops fans that deserve something other than microwaved leftovers.
  2. With some motion and graphic qualities lacking, it's a shame EA hasn't gone further to incorporate excellent atmosphere with astounding gameplay for the ultimate college hoops game.

    It’s almost laughable how little has changed.

    I haven't bought an ea sports basketball game since march madness 2006, so I thought that buying this game would be ok. This game is I haven't bought an ea sports basketball game since march madness 2006, so I thought that buying this game would be ok. This game is honestly the exact same thing as 06. There is no new features. They changed the name and a little bit of the look but it really is the same thing. I am a badger fan and they still don't have the Kohl Center right this is pathetic. I would love to get my money back on this, I feel robbed!! Expand
