I picked up NCAA Basketball '10 yesterday, like many others, with limited expectations. I just sold off Live after enough frustrating things caused me to give up on the game but had some hope for NCAA '10 because I thought it would correct some of the complaints I had with Live after playing the demo.

Let's get the negatives out of the way, some larger issues from Live 10 that are in NCAA '10:

  • Minimal fast breaks though the CPU will push the ball a lot if they're up

College basketball is my favorite sport so naturally I look forward to the college basketball game (still sad that it isn't games) more than any other release each year. NCAA '10's demo finally dropped last night for the PS3, here are my thoughts...

I played about ten games, first five on All-Conference (All-Star in Live) and then five on Varsity (Pro). After the first five games I was ready to delete the demo, same issues post-patch from Live were already annoying me on AC.

Have you given up on Live because you can't get to the FT line? Or because the CPU has an unfair advantage and gets all the foul calls while you get pummeled and the refs swallow their whistles? Or because you're tired of getting sucked into bad collision animations where you never make the shot and never get a foul called? Tired of too much stupid contact?

Well, pick Live back up one more time and give this a try...

C/P'd from my post in the Live 10 forum.

Some are comedic gold, some are just regular quotes. Either way, Walton was my favorite NBA announcer of all time. It was sad to hear that was retiring from the mic due to back problems. Here are some of his best and most memorable quotes, enjoy...

"The only man who can stop Cliff Robinson is Cliff Robinson. The man is unstoppable even at 38."

"Kenyon Martin is the 2nd best player in the Eastern Conference."

"I want to see Ben Wallace come ... Read More

After spending six days with the game and getting more comfortable with the gameplay here's some of what I've really noticed.

Five Don'ts...

1. Attempt a lay up or dunk every time you get past your initial defender on the perimeter. Just like IRL, if you shake your first defender (head fake, dribble drive, whatever) it is not a license to go barreling into the paint and attempt to posterize whatever poor CPU souls happen to be in there. Pay attention to the help defense ... Read More

Maybe, maybe not. But he isn't getting anywhere near the attention he deserves. Sure, part if it is because of the East Coast bias and BSPN, but even UCLA's still-intact run of consecutive Final Fours received plenty of media attention. But then again, UCLA is UCLA after all.

Now that the season is in full swing and game after game can be seen on ESPN, I'm getting a little annoyed with the constant claim from the media nitwits that the three best players in America are Tyler Hansbrough, ... Read More

Now that NCAA Basketball 09 has been out for two weeks, rosters are named, sliders are out and a patch has been released from EA we have a pretty good idea of where things stand on the college basketball front how this game stacks up in comparison to the famed College Hoops 2K8.

I have played about 20 games of NCAA 09 (with sliders, on 20 min halves) and have a very good idea of what the game offers, what it's bright spots are and what it needs to work on.

It has been interesting ... Read More

So far the Autumn months have been interesting and eventful for the basketball genre. Purely from a subjective standpoint we've seen the partial resurrection of NBA Live, the partial downfall of NBA2K and one sleeper emerge in NCAA 09. Heated debates have been seen all over the forums during the last six weeks and we're sure to see more in the coming weeks after NCAA Basketball 09 hits shelves next Tuesday (well, we think that's the street date at least). Regardless of your personal feelings ... Read More
