Atmosphere is what distinguishes a college basketball video game from an NBA simulation, and College Hoops 2K7 has plenty. If you've ever attended a college game, you'll recognize the excitement and energy that 2K has captured. The graphics are nothing to write home about, but the soft-focus quality of the instant replays looks really, really good.

That said, gamers who just want quick trips up and down the hardwood might want to think twice before buying College Hoops 2K7. Gameplay is solid, and a quick game between division rivals is always fun. But the stand-out part of this game is the Legacy mode, in which players build a small program over multiple seasons, investing money in recruitment, developing underclassmen's skills, fostering team unity, and chasing after a Final Four Championship. The level of detail is mind-boggling.
