  • Summary: College Hoops 2K6 is the latest entry in the 2K series of NCAA basketball simulations. New to the game this year is the Coach's Clipboard feature, which lets you instantly change your tactics during the game. Recruiting has also been changed with the addition of recruiting camps. Coaching is the main focus of the changes, with real coaches having been added in. Also, teamwork and focus have been made more vital to team success. All other game modes from past iterations of the series have been included. Expand

  1. A smooth flowing basketball game, complete with a huge franchise mode and Live online play.
  2. Rock-solid gameplay engine artfully recreates the college hoop experience.
  3. 85
    Greg Gumble and Clark Kellogg do a nice job with postgame highlights and their "Selection Sunday" show lends real NCAA flavor to the proceedings. In the booth, Vern Lundquist and Bill Rafferty do a solid job of keeping commentary interesting.
  4. Easily the best college basketball game of the year and one that every college hoop fan needs to own.
  5. The defensive steal system just doesn't feel right, and the interaction animations between players can produce some funky results. [Jan 2006, p.138]
  6. With the depth of the legacy mode, the replay value is huge.
  7. Pitting 2K's college game against EA's is a close call, but ultimately I suppose that this game's better price and A.I. give it the edge. Someone needs to fire the coach before it's guaranteed a tourney berth, though.
