Product Details
Description
ESPN's brand of college basketball returns to the virtual hardwood with fresh features and a familiar name. This 2K5 edition of College Hoops boasts a new graphics engine, a revamped Legacy mode, and a Reactive Court Sense AI system designed to produce realistic player behavior. Computer-controlled players now decide for themselves, individually, how to best help their team in any situation. This allows for timing-based plays, leading passes to players as they cut to the basket, and independent defensive moves based on the coach's calls.Good coaching is as important as it ever was. Numerous smaller college teams are available for play for the first time in this year's game, allowing fans to live out their own Cinderella stories. Since ESPN College Hoops 2K5 is built on a version of the ESPN NBA game engine, IsoMotion2 moves can play a big role, allowing players to perform spins, fakes, and crossovers to shake the D and make the bucket. As in earlier versions of ESPN College Hoops, online play is available for connected PlayStation 2 and Xbox gamers. ~ T.J. Deci, All Game Guide

ESPN College Hoops 2K5
4.5 Star Review  GameZone - Nov 29, 2004

Speaking as a sports fan, a college cheerleader and a hardcore gamer, I can truthfully say that there aren’t many college hoops games that really make me believe this is the ultimate college basketball title. I’ve played many a great EA Sports game and was even captivated by a few stellar 989 Sports titles on the PS2, but this year the ESPN College Hoops 2K franchise has blown me away. ESPN College Hoops 2K5 on the Xbox joins the ranks of the recent ESPN sports titles that are priced at twenty dollars and are well worth the money. Please, grab a seat and come see why.

4.5 Star Review  IGN.com - Nov 18, 2004

Each year, ESPN College Hoops gets better and this year's no exception. ESPN College Hoops 2K5 is my favorite hoops game of the year for its atmosphere, its wondrous meterless free throw system, and its improved Legacy Mode. Though there are still some gameplay flaws and sound bugs, College Hoops 2K5 is a diaper dandy.
