    Solid title, worth the moolah. Not enough fouls for a sim, and zero fast breaks, but that's the only real beef. Highly suggest playing "slow" mode - it's much more realistic. Enjoy!

    This game is fun, but with out some faults whay to many easy 5 foot shots missed and why are there hardly any fast breaks in the game. even if it's not as good as nba 2k3, if you like college basketball its a must buy. if not try renting it first. one other thing it's better than march madness 2003 in my opinion.

    Fast-paced, big on fun, and contains the best passing engine on any hoops game. [Feb 2003, p.67]

    While "NBA 2K3" is a tighter (and perhaps better) game from top to bottom, it doesn't have the same energy, rabid fanbase, or guts as NCAA. [Feb/Mar 2003, p.86]

    My favorite basketball game this year... If Kush and Visual Concepts can iron out these troubles and focus more on the Legacy Mode next year, this could be among the elite sports games of 2003.
