Will Anderson  "This Is A Very Fun Game To Play By Yourself, But Its Much Better To Have Some Friendly Competition. The Sound Is Great And The Gameplay Is Great. My Only Complaints Are That The Graphics Make The Players Look Completely Unlike The Real Players At Times And That Includes The Coaches. I Know That The Ncaa Has Restrictions On Using The Likeness Of A Player Or Coach, But Having An African-american Coach Appear As A Caucasion Is A Little Ridiuclous And Vice Versa. One More Complaint Is That They Do Not Have The Season Mode Which Would Have Been Very Enjoyable. I Know That They Can't Include Every Team On A School's Schedule Because Many Of Those Teams Aren't In The Game, But They Should Allow You To Play Your Schedule To The Extent The Teams Are Included In The Game. Besides Those Little Nuances, This Made For A Great Game And Its Lastability Is Way Up There."

Graham Hewitt  "This Game Has Excellent Game Play And Is Easily One Of The Best And Most Realistic Basketball Video Games I Have Played, Plus It Is Also The College Version.my Only Complaint About This Game Is That It Is Missing Some Of The Qualities That Made Ncaa Football 2002 So Good.i Thought This Game Was Going To Have Some Of The Options That Were Included In The Football Game, Such As The Dynasty Mode And Being Able To Recruit Players And Be The Coach At The School.if This Game Had Had These Features Plus The Game Play Which It Has Now It Would Easily Be One Of The Best Sports Games Ever.maybe If They Couldnt Fit These Options In Due To A Lack Of Space, Maybe They Could Consider Getting Rid Of Some Of The Teams In The Game, Because Personally I Dont Really Care About The Teams That Are Ranke 100 And Beyond."
