NCAA Basketball 2010
WOW, A WHOLE NEW GAME
Okay so let me start off saying that alot of people right now dont even care for this game, why? Because EA sports has made some horrific college games in the past. BUT LET ME TELL YOU, THIS ONE IS LIKE NEW, AAND IS EXTREEMLY FUN TO PLAY. Gameplay: The past few years have been robotic and glitchy. NOW, the gameplay is wow. Jump shots take strategy(timing them in the air) and they are no longer triggered by the tap of the button. Dribbling is where you can size up your man and the Basket has an authentic college feel to it. Before Gameplay was a 3 out of 10. Now its a 8.5 out of 10. Presentation: Now there are 2 broadcast systems cbs and abc. Its amazing. It brings the real feel of college basketball to the game.. Toughest places to play is AMAZING. the whole tv screen shakes when your at home and the opposing team gets scared out of their pants and miss the shots they shoot while the crowd is roaring! OVERALL THE GAME IS WORTH IT AND IS A COMEBACK FOR EASPORTS!! WORTH YOUR MONEY, SMOOTH GAMEPLAY, GOOD PRESENTATION, FUN AND ENJOYABLE!
Good game, but disappointed.
I think this rendition of NCAA bball 10 is so much better than previous years. The graphics are much better along with the gameplay. I like the idea of having the CBS and ESPN broadcasting teams. My big gripe being a University of Michigan fan, is that UM's maize alternate uniform isn't found and the Crisler Arena floor is not updated after it was renovated in 2008. I hope this could get back to EA to provide an add-on on PSN and Xbox live to update things like this that are missed so we don't have to wait till the following year to see if it was corrected or not. I would like to see this with all EA sports games. Kind of like the AFL add-on EA put in for Madden. Otherwise, a real good game and a big improvement from previous years. I really enjoy the college game of basketball over the NBA, so it is good to see the improvements for this years NCAA basketball game. I wonder if EA has ever thought of adding NCAA hockey to the NHL series.
Pretty solid basketball game
I bought my copy 2 years ago within the first month it was released and still play it every now and then. The interface while waiting for screens to load is fun with the shoot around. Also, EA gives you plenty of options to customize your team in dynasty mode which i really liked. The overall gameplay is smooth and isn't too hard to pick up and play. The few negatives are that i've had glitches for example where a goal tending will be called but, the points are not registered. Along with a few minor problems here and there i can't find anything else that is bad about it besides mediocre graphics.
good game need a new one pronto many agree
good game need a new one pronto many agree so hop on it ea money to be made take a poll or something to prove it as an asset
Very different from last year for the better but....
The game itself is great, more in depth than last years because I thought last years was the worst game yet for this series. The broadcast are ridiciuosly good, its just that the commentating is a little flat and awkward at times. My main gripe is why in the world does this game not have the real schedule's and tournaments that your favorite teams are participating in this year. I play with WVU and they are in the 76 classic tournament as some of you already know but they get invited to the maui invitational every season and the 76 classic tournament isnt even on there. You can customize your schedule the way you want it but the small teams that you play in real life decline to play you cuz they dont wanna get blown out. I like to play the game like its real life, for instance any other game have real schedule's like NCAA Football 10, its all real on every aspect. Good game but its also hard to score sometimes. Anyway thats my rant about this game so I would recommend it but be hesitant if you like real to life aspects of games.
Positive aspects overpower negative
Camera Angle: Have had no issues with the camera angles. No complaints since there are multiple camera angles. Challenge: The AI gets easy if you do not adjust the sliders. Sliders make it so the game can get harder if it really needs to be. Once you get the hang of the game you will definitely need to adjust the sliders to play at a level where you still can lose some games. Computer often makes the same mistakes. I had 30 blocks in one game because they ran the same play over, and over, and over.....and over. Controls: The controls work fine. It does not take very long to get comfortable with the game controls. I love the new controls where you can control a player off the ball on offense. Graphics/Animation: The only complaints I have with the animations is how it sometimes screws me over on defense. I fall quite a bit when I drive the lane causing my guy to fall behind on defense. This is hard against up tempo teams since they run the court. Interface: Not too many complaints with the interface except for in dynasty mode the interface has a medium learning curve to it. Once you figure it out it does not make that much difference. Sound: Great? Statistics: Sliders help the statistics become more realistic. Check out some forums and you can find some good, realistic ones. Team/Player Variety: There is a small team variety though I feel like I am playing the same team with different skill level each game with a few exceptions. Player models all look the same. Overall: The negatives are not that big of a deal. The game is great and if you are looking for a college basketball game this is a must buy. I would definitely recommend this game to any basketball fans.
I just got my PS3 for christmas and i didnt have a basketball game so it was a no brainer i was going to get this since I like NCAA Basketball more than the NBA. So since this was my first basketball game for the PS3 I thought it was amazing. The graphics, the tournaments, the dynasty mode, and even the online is good. But what I thought was really cool was how you get to play as blake griffin outside in the city of your favorite team with the same weather is at the time in that city and it tells you that teams next game when the game is loading. All in all of you ned a basketball game of just a game in general this is one to seriously consider.
So, I get this game and it is so crazy!! First off, I love sports and video games. When I played NCAA Basketball 2010, I really could not believe how amazing it was. The realism is so crazy! They have all the right details anyone could ask for - the crowd is into the game, you don't make all the shots, you have to play defense... Its college basketball at its best!! The graphics are ridiculous right to the tee. The arenas look authentic. The online game play is absurd! The ticker on the bottom of the screen is amazing because of the updates that relate to real world sports news. I would highly recommend the HDMI cable with this and all games to make the gaming experience even more realistic. This game is a MUST HAVE for any college basketball or sports fanatic. Great Job, EA Sports!
Ncaa 10 was the last college basketball game for ea which i think is a big mistake due to the recent increase in college basketball this game lacks a true collision system which in my view could make this game get picked up by more students if they gave one more shot
Very surprising game
I was surprised when I began to play this game. I have been playing Ncaa basketball for years now and have never been really impressed. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by the jump this game has taken. The graphics are leaps and bounds above previous titles. The movement is crisp and the shooting this year makes you feel like you have some control. I also have to complement the presentation of the game. You have multiple announce teams and the sound and commentary make you feel like you are watching a broadcast instead of playing a game. The recruiting still needs some work and the dynasty menus need to be laid out in a more efficient way. These however are minor complaints compared to all the new positive aspects of this game. This is by far the best basketball game for your money this year. Go out and buy this game and be ready to be pleasantly surprised.
