  1. Excellent controls, mechanics and ball physics designed for a sports game that is very easy to grasp.
  2. NCAA Basketball 10 is targeted towards college hoop fans and there is no question they will love the presentation and the excitement the game brings. That being said, although the gameplay remains on par with other basketball games already on the market there is nothing other than the NCAA brand which differentiates this game from any other basketball game out there.
  3. While more modes would've been appreciated and we could've done without the sleepy A.I. teammates, NCAA Basketball 10 is a solid game of hoops. The broadcast styles are unparalleled, the gameplay is good fun and the modes that made the cut are more than enough to keep fans happy.

    The game's no longer only for the most die-hard NCAA basketball fans -- it can finally serve players looking for a change of pace from the year's professional hoops offerings.
  5. If you just want or need a college basketball game that’s fun for quick one-on-one couch battles in your dorm room, NCAA Basketball 10 is a decent option that’s easy to pick up and play, and it’s authentic enough to feel like a real game. If you’re looking for a deeper experience though, NCAA Basketball 10 isn’t going to take you too far into the post season.
  6. With the improved presentation and lively college crowds, a couple pieces are in place to make NCAA Basketball 10 a destination hoops experience. If EA adds more game modes and rids itself of the legacy gameplay problems, perhaps a future class can rival the thrill of the NCAA Tournament.
  7. College basketball games historically sell fewer copies, which is all well and good, but charging full price for something that lacks the features we come to expect is a swift kick in the groin to users.
