  1. A great first entry for the series on the Xbox 360, with great dynamic gameplay and a robust Dynasty mode. Far and away the best basketball game EA has released for a next-gen system.
  2. NCAA March Madness 07 has a few gameplay issues. If you list them, they do add up but in practice the game is enjoyable and will prove fun to all but the most picky of gamers.
  3. If you are a big-time college hoops aficionado, I believe you’ll be able to look past the flaws of this game and appreciate the college atmosphere and intensity it brings. EA is definitely on the right track.
  4. While NCAA March Madness 07 isn’t without flaws in both its gameplay and presentation values, there certainly is a vast improvement from the franchise’s final appearance on the original Xbox last year.

    Madness 07 is a great first entry on the 360, but there is plenty of room for improvement. In the end, Madness is a fun, good basketball game worth a look.
  6. The impressive Dynasty mode and new Team Intensity Mode (which lets you track and alter the individual momentum of your players) offer some interesting strategic aspects to the game, but in the end March Madness still ends up a few baskets short of its competition.
  7. The choppy animations, quirky menu navigation, bad officiating, and poor commentary are enough to undo the great strides EA made in the graphics and controls.
  8. The sounds and music in this game are authentic right down to the announcers.
  9. From a strong matchmaking system to a deep dynasty mode that largely mirrors EA's NCAA football game, March Madness does a good job bringing the energy of college hoops home.
  10. Sweet Sixteen gameplay with a Final Four atmosphere.

    March Madness is better than the collage hoops the way the fans get like after they score is the real deal.
