Rated 10 out of 10 by College HOOPS fan #1 2K owns EA once again
Once again, 2K has produced an amazing game that easily betters the EA version. The graphics of College Hoops absolutely blew me away. The game has drastically improved from last year, and a personal owner of both, I can easily name 5 great improvements to this year's game. 1. The graphics are at least twice as good and the controls let you dominate on either side of the ball. 2. Game modes are far better, as they now feature an improved legacy mode with better recruiting and other improved off court moves. 3. If you are a true college hoops maniac like me, you can edit player names to make them what they are in real life unlike having the fake names made by the computer. 4. The new 6th man feature increases or decreases how well your players perform based on the crowd's noise level and excitement. 5. New on-court controls enable you to have several play options with the touch of a button. I could go on and on about how much better the game is this year and all of the improvements, but I'm just going to tell you now that if you are looking for a great college hoops experience, this is the game for you.
Rated 10 out of 10 by 360-PSP player almost perfect
AWESOME GAME! Better than 2k7. One or two minor issues but other than that it's an awesome game. The problems are- 1. Announcers say score wrong 7 out of 10 times and 2. Sometimes the ref won’t give you the ball to throw in so you have to waste a timeout. Other than that it’s just about perfect. 6th man is a sweet feature and career is ALOT more detailed. An All-American challenge. Its fun if you’re into just getting your skills good but I like to just rough it out. But yea I give this game 4 and 3/4 stars out of 5. On another note I like this game a TON more than March madness by EA. in MM like everything goes in and game isn't real realistic. Also this game gives you a real challenge. If you want to have a basketball game that you get bored with after 2 months buy EA's March Madness. if you want a game you'll play until the new one comes out buy college hoops 2k8.
Rated 0 out of 10 by basket ball freak. High school mode
A high school game will be a great idea, and work your way up to college and eventualy to the pro. Basketball game gets realy boring after your first season. while in college or the pro have the chance to be part of the dream team every four years, and make it realy hard to make to college and the pro. Be very realistic about the details make the players change their physical aspect like size. Graphics got to be right, don't make the center as fast as the point guard. Every sports fan dream is to see them self playing the sports they love. Give me a reason to play basketball game again, right now we not doing to good.

Although this is the greatest college basketball game ever, it does have some issues. The graphics of the players are a little iffy and you don't make all of your layups, i mean i know you shouldn't make them all but its a lot. Yet there are so many great things about this game to. The court, players (not faces), fans all look real and give a very good appeal. Also you can create a player, team, plays, and chants. The recruiting in legacy could also be improved a little. Overall this is the best college basketball game ever.
Rated 10 out of 10 by PLR1427 Still my favorite game of all time.
I've been playing college hoops 2k8 since day one. I love the legacy mode and how you can be a coach Starting from a small school and building your way up. The gameplay is more realistic than 2k13. I love the fact that not every layup or every shot goes in. You can't dunk on everybody and even if your center is 7'6" with a 99 vertical he still won't jump over the back board. The most realistic game ever. I just wish you could talk some players out of going pro like EA's NCAA line allows you to. Still the best game ever. Better than 2k13
Rated 10 out of 10 by LeBronHuffman23 Why this game is great!
Being 2011 right now, there isn't any other college basketball game out there. There is a good way that you can make this a "college hoops 2k11" game. first, you have to have xbox live/psn to be able to do so. You can go on 2k share where you can download the full 10-11 college rosters to play. People around the world create teams and players that actually look like the players so you can use them in college hoops 2k8. I highly recommend this game!

IMO the college hoops series might be the best sports franchise ever. I have been playing 2k6 for a long time and sometimes found myself choosing to play it over NBA 2k12. The 2k8 version of college hoops improves upon the previous games more than i thought possible. It would be a great game released today. considering its release date only makes it harder to believe how good the game is.

You all need to take a look at what you are saying before you write it. EA and 2K sports have been battleing for this game for the last 5 to 6 years. EA is always a good two player game and 2K has a good legacy. Thats it thats the bottom liine. 2K needs to add that feature though I do agree! It would kill EA. The whole reason is that 2k makes you feel like you are actually part of the team.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Bickers AMAZING!!!!!
This game is a really good game. the gameplay is solid and you would never get tired of it. However, there are some minor flaws. Whenever you run into a player the ball gets stolen, which is completely unrealistic, and the uniforms are not up to par. Besides that, this game is amazing and has lasting appeal. I would recommend it to anyone.

this year nba 2k8 and nba live are so close its amazing. but i dont see the college hoops games being close atall. 2k8 is always a better more realistic gameplay when it comes to college hoops. and this year with the new added feature of the sixth man advabtage. this game will blow march madness out of the water.
