  1. There are only two college basketball games available, EA's or 2K's. The latter costs less and plays better, so the choice is pretty clear.
  2. The career mode is pretty frustrating, which is unfortunate because it's the main draw of a college game for me. The whole interface is too damn confusing, and there's not a word about it in the printed manual.
  3. If you held off on Xbox and you dig the college game and atmosphere, this is your best(and only)bet on 360. [Apr 2006, p.81]
  4. If you haven’t played College Hoops 2K6 on the Playstation 2 or Xbox yet, then the Xbox 360 version will be perfect you. If you already own the current-generation versions, then there probably aren’t enough new things to warrant an additional purchase, especially at $60.
  5. Since the features are pretty much identical to the current-gen versions of the games, I find it hard to suggest that someone pay 30 dollars more for what surmounts to a graphical upgrade.
  6. It’s certainly not so bad that it’ll ruin the series name for future releases and it does provide a fair amount of gameplay potential despite its flaws and glitches, but it will surely upset some of its player base who expected that the title would be a vast improvement—a next-generation title that pushed their system to new heights of performance.
  7. The game’s most glaring faults are just too hard to ignore and the visuals aren’t as remarkable as it could have been. If you’re a fan of college b-ball or missed out on the original Xbox version, then you might want to consider buying this.

The gameplay is smoth, and it is MORE realistic than NBA 2K6. Kobe or whomever isn't taking off just after 1/2 court for crazy dunk! I like the game, and it is worth buying. Full Review »
