  1. Despite some features that need upgrading, College Hoops 2K7 is still the king of all hoops games, pro or college, on any platform.
  2. 90
    College is all about learning to be creative, and College Hoops 2K7 opens up a world possibilities both on and off the court.
  3. The most realistic and enjoyable basketball game on the market.
  4. Though the game’s depth and detail caters to hardcore hoops fans, game after game, there are few moments that feel inauthentic in College Hoops, which is a difficult point to reach for any sports title.
  5. But for fans of college basketball, these faults are drastically outweighed by the deep Legacy mode, solid gameplay, and immersive campus atmosphere College Hoops 2K7 has to offer.
  6. College Hoops 2K7 is a very good college basketball game, but its value is somewhat lessened by the fact that it follows "College Hoops 2K6" by just eight months.
  7. 70
    The most painful realization will come to owners of "College Hoops 2K6," who will be hard-pressed to find a major improvement in the core game, outside of the roster update. It's hard to justify paying full price for such a similar game.

    I'm blown away by this game and I've been playing the 2k college games since NCAA College Basketball 2k3. You really feel like your there while you play this game and the emotion factor, game play, audio, all around is superb! Expand

    Awesome Game. Recruiting is as in depth as it gets. Gameplay is fast, smooth, and realistic. Graphics look sick in high-def.

    Really fun and you will get into very easily but I don't understand the achievement points system yet.

    Easily the best college basketball game to date and after playing the EA 2007 game there is literally no contest at all. Graphics are good if not great but given the amount of arenas, players and teams I am sure that is why the graphics had to take somewhat of a backseat. Custom chants, pre and post game shows with the CBS sports crew, etc make it a very immersive experience. Play seems to be more balanace (ie, hard is hard but not impossible like say 2k7 which always was either too hard or too easy). Highly recommended. Expand
