THE GOOD: The good part of this game is it has very very good graphics.
THE BAD: I don't like the fact that they don't have the names of the players until you draft them from High School (on a career), but other then that it's fine.
SUMMARY: I believe this game is pretty good if you want a college basketball game. Now that 2004 games are out, it's probably cheaper then if it were new. It has alot of colleges to choose from. You can do everything from a exhibition, to a season.
If you are new, you should start on freshman mode... that's pretty easy. As you get better, you can advance to sophmore, junior, and then senior mode, the game getting harder as you go. The easy part if when you shoot you have to get the ball really close to the circle, on freshman mode, you don't have to have the ball in the circle. When you get to senior, if you are just the slightest off, you will miss the shot.
I hope you like the game.
