    I downloaded the demo... it looked okay, it felt weird though. Im not much of a basketball fan though, I just downloaded it thinking it would be interesting to check out... I don't have much comment, it just seemed a bit... sluggish? Control wise that is...

    Certainly did feel sluggish especially when someone's making a cut towards the basket and gets a pass. It's like he's stuck in quicksand before he gets the ball. He runs, then stops, then catches, and then continues. I like that they put Kevin Love on the cover but this game is nothing next to College Hoops 2k. Another sports genre turned rancid by EA....

    I cant get into the NCAA b-ball series. The engine is slower, but yet too similiar to the NBA one..and its just not as "flashy" for me.

    Same here. It's just not fluid but unfortunately, it's the only college hoops game.

    I bought NCAA08 as my first PS3 purchase, i played it twice and traded it in.
    That game sucked, so i figure this ones the same. To bad since Kevin Love is on the cover.

    Pretty much NCAA08 with a new cover. I'd return mine but unfortunately, I can't go back to College Hoops.

    If you want current rosters and player names for 2k8, I'd check out here:

    College Hoops 2K Rosters - Operation Sports Forums

    Keep in mind they're all amateur made so they may or may not be 100% accurate. I know a few are making ones for the 2008-09 season like they did for ESPN NFL 2k.

    They've had server issues from the start but I hope it's not the main reason 2k's out of NCAA BBall because their overall product even in single player or system link is almost flawless next to EA's game.
