    This game plays like their nba game. it doesn't feel like college hoops and their crowd stuff is lame...It's all sprint button and go. no strategy. save your money.

    For all the additions in this game, some sensible, some less so, there's one constant: The gameplay is sharp, and players move up and down the court with purpose and meaning.

    Packed with atmosphere and lots of engaging features, such as the revamped Legacy mode and tutorials, College Hoops 2K8 is one of those games that really delivers on the college experience.
