We have just posted our College Hoops 2K7 review. Find out what Aaron Holbert had to say about it.
"I must admit that Iím not a huge college basketball fan. I watch a lot of games and go to a few Georgetown and Maryland games a year, but Iíve always preferred the NBA. That said, every year the basketball game that I play the most every year is 2Kís College Hoops series. For the past four years, itís been the game that has come closest to representing real basketball. Iím ashamed to say it, but I was actually upset when last yearís XBOX 360 release was pushed back to March because that meant I wasnít going to be able to play the game during the real season. Well, its winter again, and the College Hoops series is back with another strong effort.
Graphically, this game is on par with the past 2K basketball games, but this still remains a weak part of this series. The body models are decent, but some of the heads on the models are too big. Also, while I know that the NCAA prevents game developers from creating players that resemble the real-life players, there are far too many players that look nothing like their real life counterpart. I understand that itís a fine line but itís not a NCAA violation to create a player that has the same skin tone as the real player. Thankfully, all of this can be edited with the player editor. This yearís game has the most complete editor Iíve seen in a basketball game. If you have the time, you can replicate the face of your favorite player."
