College Hoops 2K8
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.
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!
WE NEED ANOTHER ONE
I am still playing 2k8 and i know there are many others playing this game. 2K needs to make another college hoops game. EA was no competition to this
The best college basketballgame ever and they wont even make another. Guess its always good to go out on top.
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.
This game is still great in 2011, i wish 2k would make a another game. You can play legacy forever and it never gets old.
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.
Best College Hoops game out there.
The gameplay is great and reminds me a lot of NBA 2K11, but less difficult. It has great graphics for its release date of 2007. It is great and many hours can be spent in the different modes in this game. My only complaint is my game did not come with a case. Well that not the games fault though.
2K8 over March Madness
I have played both 2K8 and March Madness and 2K8 blows it away. the graphics are better, 2K8 is way more realistic, and it is about a 9.0 in my book and March Madness is about a 2.3 or something. Its that much better. so get 2K8 if you cant decide which one to get
Excellent Game but.......
Graphics are not that realistic to me. Overall very good game.
