The best-selling college basketball game for 2006 returns with new features designed to enhance the realism and atmosphere. Energetic crowds now influence the on-court action with the new 6th Man Meter, which increases with each successful shot and key play on defense. Once filled, home teams play with less fatigue and visitors play with less confidence until the meter expires. A new range meter displays hotspots on the hardwood, letting players know where individual athletes can shoot for the highest percentage of success.
Other key features include halftime adjustments, a revamped passing system, and tighter on-the-ball coverage. Court management is improved with the ability to call plays, check on players, adjust settings, and queue up subs without having to pause the game. College Hoops 2K8 also includes 90 classic teams, 15 all-time school teams, and six all-time conference teams in addition to the hundreds of schools found in 2K7. Tracy Wolfson joins the commentary crew of Verne Lundquist and Bill Rafferty, and the licensed soundtrack includes such artists as Jurassic 5, J. Dilla, MF Doom, Dilated Peoples, and more. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
