989 Studios ships sport twosome.
The two very first college NCAA games have just shipped to a PS2 retailer near you. While on paper both games sound great, early impressions of many other critics isn't so hot at the moment, so I would suggest holding of the purchase of either game, and go towards Madden 2001 if you haven't done so already, unless you are an NCAA fan, then critics say that they are both decent titles, with their fair share of good spots.
"NCAA Final Four 2001 is the only way to enjoy intense, true-to-life college hoops on the PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system," said Ami Blaire, director, product marketing, Sony Computer Entertainment America Inc. "The 989 Sports team has utilized the PlayStation 2 system's power to crank up the college realism through detailed players, arenas and animations plus school-specific fight songs and chants that offer the intensity and true spirit of Final Four tourney action."
"NCAA GameBreaker 2001 for the PlayStation captures the true spirit of college sports," said Ami Blaire, director, product marketing, Sony Computer Entertainment America Inc. "From its graphics and gameplay, the inclusion of realistic elements such as all 115 Division I-A programs, and the play-by-play call of broadcast icon Keith Jackson, NCAA GameBreaker 2001 transports gamers right into the college action, bringing them closer to the real thing than ever before."
If you enjoy watching NCAA televised events, maybe you should check out each game, as I've heard the horrible glitches seen in GameDay 2001 are gone in GameBreaker, and Final Four 2001 is quite decent. If you're looking for a hoops game at least rent Final Four, and if you are a college football fan then check out GameBreaker 2001, or wait until EA releases NCAA Football 2001. Both NCAA game retail at $49.99.
